I don't know really why it seems so long other than the heat, I guess. I did take one dog for a short walk this morning and then went to Murdock's for the 4-H cook out. With little money, hamburger and drink for $0.25 is a pretty good deal. There was also a pack burro group there with one burro all decked out in his pack stuff. I took about 3 pictures of him. Then there was a lady with a mini-horse that just came to her knees, so I took pictures of her, too. When I got to the barn I found out how well my pictures came out -- NOT. I didn't have a memory card in the camera and it was too late to go back for more pictures.
I got the grain unloaded and walked around and visited some of the people there at the barn and found out my friend wouldn't get there till about 5, so ended up waiting till then for a ride and the nice breeze went away so it was pretty hot again. But I did have a nice ride, even cantering for a little bit (I'm not too great with balance right now since I wasn't riding for a while and have a balance problem from neuropathy, though it is better on the horse than off). Afterward Fancy got some grazing and some grooming and her West Nile Vaccine before the mosquitoes come out full force down there. She was a happy girl and so was I.
But once I got home, I felt worn out. I think I will try to go to bed a little early tonight.

I am sorry that I mentioned this in my blog. It seems that even those responding on this forum, who don't know anything about me, believe I should have these drugs pushed on me. THAT would get anyone depressed, even if they are not before. One person wrote that they can be used as pain relievers, which could have been a reason for someone to push them on me (though I already have something for pain), but that wasn't the reason they were being pushed or they would not have been mentioning psychiatriac therapists.
So I am removing that blog.

I watched Biggest Loser tonight and I got to wondering if it is really possible for someone who is already 59 and had stage 4 cancer to get fit enough to even walk a marathon, much less run one. Of course, there is a problem with weak ankles (they twist on about the 2nd step whenever I try to run) and the arthritis in my hips that the radiation therapy gave me. I can't even seem to get up most days other than to come in here to the computer. I wish I had someone who could get me up and out of here, but I am alone. I was doing good last year for a while and got down 15 pounds. Now it is back on and I just want to eat bad stuff. Somehow I have to get back at it.
Tomorrow I have an appointment to find out the results of my last MRI. I pray that nothing has started showing up again. Maybe I can get back in the groove of eating right and exercising when that is over. And maybe, just maybe, I can get so I can at least walk a 5k or 10 k sometime in my life.

Other than diet-wise, since I didn't have time for breakfast and they didn't have healthy options at the convention center.
I went to the Diabetes Expo here in Denver and there seemed to be several new things along with the usual older ones who repeated. One booth had Kim Lyons, who was a trainer on The Biggest Loser a couple seasons ago. Kim gave out autographed copies of her book "Your Body, Your Life" on the even hours and on the odd hours she gave resistance bands and demonstrated exercises with them. Those who got the bands did the exercises along with her and she got down in the audience with them to help some of them with their form. They also had cooking demonstrations geared toward diabetes and also gluten-free diets and some other exercise demos, but mostly I saw ones for the children in those. I also got a cook book that is a Disease Prevention Cook Book with the idea of helping prevent Diabetes, Heart Disease, Strokes and Cancer. Gosh, that is 4 books in 2 days and I didn't have to pay full price for any of them.
I also got in a lot of walking today since I was there for three and a half hours. And for the first time in three years of that Expo my hips didn't hurt me. I just actually enjoyed my day. But even though it is early, I am ready to hit the sack now.
