Hi Jackie,
Sunday I need to be at church by 9 and will be there until 1 in the afternoon, actually the next few Sundays that will be my schedule.
I attend one service and help out during the last service. Normally I do this the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month but this month one of the church staff is on vacation for a few weeks so they need more volunteers (that's me!).

How's your week been?
What videos do you do? I've been looking at the Chalene Extreme video set and will order that soon to do at home in addition to going to the gym for weights and the treadmill, eliptical etc.

I'm reading a book called "The Blood Sugar Solution" by Mark Hyman, MD.
Since I have diabetes and the other often associated illnesses, I find this book brings together many of the concepts from other sources. Plus it still features a plant based food plan, no sugar, no refined grains, lean proteins etc.
Plus it brings in exercise, using blood glucose readings, journaling, logging food and exercise, meditation, etc. Its actually pretty good and the plan is designed to ease into it.
Tomorrow morning and maybe early afternoon I'll be the worker bee while my uncle helps me take our bathroom sink off the wall, replace the pipes and reattach the sink to the wall. After that I'll do some gardening and other things around the house to keep caught up.

Hi Kathy how are you? Hope you haven't been too busy this week. I was pretty sore after our walk last week. I think I am going to walk there again this Sunday. Maybe the same time (or a half hour earlier). I plan on doing strength training tomorrow so I should probably try to walk on Sunday cause I seem to get a bit stiff and sore after those walks-- more so than when I do any of my other workouts. You know what-- maybe some day if you want to do more workouts together you could come over. I do all kinds of video workouts (and all the videos have modifications so I won't hurt myself). I hope you have a great weekend :)
