Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (38 operations and counting) have kept me on a weight loss roller coaster my entire adult life. I have five artificial joints, but love to work out, the higher intensity the better. I have three forms of arthritis destroying my body, but fight to keep moving every body part they damage. That is all that stands between me and a wheelchair. My favorite fitness classes are Boxercise, Step & Zumba! My trusty elliptical keeps me moving on the days I can't get out. Winters are long and hard here and even more challenging to keep moving.
I remain on Sparkpeople to keep up with the great friends I have made!! They are my role models and supporters Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

emoticon for commenting on my blog ... "What are we doing to protect our brains?"
You and someone else noted that I "left out" information ...... such as adequate water intake, nutrition and the cutting out processed foods, etc. etc.
In lieu of all the information Sparks supplies us with ....... I leave some things to them and our own knowledge by now.........(I write blogs and endeavor to write briefly as possible and mainline one or two strong points.
One thing emphasized here was the info on the Hippocampus part of the brain ..... and how exercises maintains it .......... or 'shrinks' without adequate exercise. ..... Anyway, I believe I recently wrote a blog on the importance of water and hydration ..... Have a great week.

Really hope you enjoy the Alexander McCall Smith!!

And so sorry about your pain . . . sometimes we try too hard (and that's what happened to me at that ill-fated bikram class).
