It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine. Yoga, some exercise and careful diet. Happily, I do not need any medications other than supplements! (Unusual for an octagenarian) With Sparks help, my BP and cholesterol are back to normal and the doctor's don't think I need to lose any weight.

It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine. Yoga, some exercise and careful diet. Happily, I do not need any medications other than supplements! (Unusual for an octagenarian) With Sparks help, my BP and cholesterol are back to normal and the doctor's don't think I need to lose any weight. However, I think we know our bodies best and I feel better when I weigh a few pounds less. At 5' 10" I can carry the weight, but my knees and hips say "thank you" when I lose a few pounds. I intend to stay with Sparks and continue tracking and exercising! It is too easy to slip back into old habits without careful monitoring.

Thanks for reading my storm blog. emoticon
I used to live in Utah and in New Mexico so I understand about the dry weather. I hope you enjoy your visit when you come for vacation. It is very humid here so that may take some time to get used to if you have never been here.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thanks again for stopping by.
Love, Chelsea emoticon
