Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some ...
Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some days. Slow and steady wins the race, though.

My other big health challenge is, obviously, my weight. As of this morning {6/13/14}, I weigh 268.2 by my home scale. That's down 23 lbs from my all time highest weight of 291. I've been stuck in pretty much the same weight range for a couple years, but I'm ready and motivated to get the scale going the right way.

I think that covers the basics about me. If anyone has any questions, just ask!

I liked it a small world too but the song stays with you. Just like the Tiki Birds. I like the Haunted mansion and the Peter Pan ride. Seriously!! There is something so cool being a boat that flies off the roof over the London rooftops. I love Epcot too. We were in Disneyworld back when it first opened. It was $15 for a ticket and you could only go on one ride in each area. We stopped on our way to see Penn State play in the orange Bowl. It was 1974. emoticon We went with two other couples and drove down with them in one car. By the time I got home I hated everyone in the car, even hubs. And crazy enough we drove down during the energy crisis when the the oil embargo was tis peak.

Hope you are having a great Sunday!!!

That why we took the funiculaire except for the ghost tour. San Francisco was way worse. Nofuniculaire three. After we dropped off our rental car we took the train to Powell Street and our hotel was bout five blocks up Powell Street. We thought we would catch the catch the cable car up Powell Street but the line was insane so we decided to walk. Only five blocks right ? Straight uphill. We were carrying laptops and pulling our suitcases but halfway up we had to stop to take a break. It was really grueling on my knees and hubs' hip. After that we always took the bus or cable car if we could. the only real climbing we did was up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower . I don't know how people live there and get around. I was talking to a young woman in a bar we were in and she said the trick is know where to walk out of your way to avoid the hills. How dod you do when it as all hills?

I think the Quebec ghost tour was probably pretty good but hubs and I wouldn't know. The city is very hilly and you can get up and down by either walking up the switchback streets, stairs or the Funiculaire. We were walking. Those switchback streets go straight up. We gave up trying to keep up with tour as did a few other people and took the funiculaire up to the top to meet the kids when the tour was done. They loved it and we probably would have too if not for my knees and hubs asthma. It was a pretty cool trip. We drove there (did I tell you I don't fly well) and we found this sweet little open air ferry boat up in the back of beyond in Vermont. My kids loved it. Right before we found the ferry we saw an old abandoned house right on the side of f the country road we were on and stopped t take pictures of it. It looked like a spooky haunted house. On another trip to Vermont we tried to find the old house but never did. But we did find the ferry but it wasn't as cool as finding it the first time. emoticon . The kids always loved the car trips and never asked why we did not fl. Even trips to Disney World were by car. I really did not start flying again until I had too when younger daughter moved to ND for grad school. We moved her there and then had to fly home. I had no choice and I sat there felling like I was going to be sick the whole flight. I have altitude sickness at least that is what my doctor said I had.

And poor hubs could not watch the Penn State game on TV so he listened to it on the radio while watching other games. He did watch the WVU-Oklahoma game and now is watching a bunch of others right now. Noon to midnight!!!

Have a great night's emoticon I am heading there myself!!!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my rants...yes it sure is a different kind of workout that i have been doing but that is what makes it great....i wasn't all this gung ho on getting my health back to a better me till i had my stroke and that sent a sign to me like no other, thank god it was a minor one and the only after effect is my memory and thought process, but if i plan my moves i have no problems doing what i want...but i did a 15 minute workout tonight earlier and had the bench set way to high for a beginner, cause i felt the stretch and knew then i needed to lower the bench so in the morning like my bike it goes to the first notch and will go up every week or so.....slow and steady it goes right!!! i will get that address to you in the morning and the website also....have a good evening Cat!!!
