This documentary motivates me to get my act together and now that my stomach is feeling 99% normal I'm feeling up to walking again. So Stella and I went out for a mile walk. Feels good to get out into the neighborhood again. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/6/9/l696994395.jpg"> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/4/l348589843.jpg"> Tue, 11 Sep 2012 17:01:55 EST Today's walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4925589 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/2/l427140770.jpg"> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/0/l100695581.jpg"> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/5/l951891786.jpg"> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/7/l975040022.jpg"> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/3/l835568267.jpg"> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/6/l964892273.jpg"> Wed, 13 Jun 2012 23:13:37 EST A walk at the shoreline http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4855641 Stella, my dog, and I took a beautiful walk today at the Hayward Shoreline (CA).

Fri, 27 Apr 2012 23:28:57 EST Able to workout again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4834202 First day out since last Sunday. I came down with a cold/cough/asthma and was out of it for a while. I feel a lot better today. It feels good to almost be back to normal. Today I went to a colonoscopy consultation. My first one ever. I've put this off for eight years. So my colonoscopy will be done in mid May so it gives me about a month to mentally prepare. I'm not looking forward to the fasting. Tomorrow I plan on going for a early morning hike depending on the weather. Have a great weekend... Sat, 14 Apr 2012 00:05:20 EST Happy doggy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4822677 I wasn't able to workout yesterday and today. I ended up getting my husband's cold. So I felt pretty bad. I think I'm back to normal and I will be going for a walk tomorrow. My dog Stella will be so happy. <BR> <em>313</em> Fri, 6 Apr 2012 00:00:28 EST Force myself out the door http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4818526 I am so sore from yesterdays workout and I also have a sore throat and ears so I'm going to have to force myself out the door today for my 2 mile walk. After I'm done blogging I'm going to take a very hot shower and get ready for my walk. Have a great day Sparkers. <BR> <em>24</em> Tue, 3 Apr 2012 12:29:05 EST
