Exuberance and spring
Saturday, May 04, 2013
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.
