My cousin has been in hospital often for the past few weeks. She had gallstone surgery and now has problems with her pancreas. When i looked to see what that could be caused by, I saw that rapid weight loss could set off those problems. She is a single mom of 2. I got a little scared.
I started eating more than usual, upped my food intake and ate more vegetables, slow and steady will get me to goal.
Today I did some low-impact aerobics. I am now used to walking with my daughter's dog Samson. It is at a leisurely pace for me. For Samson, it is still exuberant...he crisscrosses in front of me, runs back to where we came from then barrels past me again. I so enjoy the songs of birds. Heard the drumming of a grouse in the forest, the sound of spring and new life to come.
My day started with a road trip and I loved seeing 2 caribou on the way out. There are so few left in our area, that when I see them, I am grateful.
I am heading out on a day trip with a couple of friends, will take care to eat healthy instead of fried. Have a great weekend. I will, we are finally getting warm days.
