Ahoy!

My husband and I have swashed our buckles a few times at the Portland Pirate Festival, and my pirate name is Iron Bess.

A few years ago, on the day before my birthday, I was diagnosed with idiopathic (cause unknown) dilated cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease). I get tired easily, have low exercise tolerance, and have gained weight. Medication and a pacemaker with implanted defibrillator stabilized my condition, but I need to banish 45 lbs!

Thanks for stopping by- I appreciate the info about Curves. (people who went) It was fun today- I think I'm going to like it. It went by pretty fast but I could feel it. Wish I could get out in the yard like I used to do in the Pac NW. We have desert scape here so there's no dirt to dig in. Miss that stuff! Looking forward to your garden blogs. GREAT that you got to take the flannels off!! A good sign.

Catching up with a few friends and blogs. So glad you're able to get out a little now. I'm about to start a plan where I'm building from small amounts of time and such to get them to habits. I seem to go in spurts and overall that does nothing for my goals. Enjoy your day ~ HUGS. Sandi
