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.
