Today was a really great day. We got a 10 mile mountain bike ride in, light lunch, and some hammock time. It was 68 degrees at 11 this morning, how nice that felt. I am so looking forward to the warmer days of spring. We had company t... Read more

The end of the year brings time for reflection and looking forward. I know I could have exercised much more and eaten much less in the past year, but over all it was a success. Weight is down, strength is up, tonsils are out, and every other b... Read more

Today is dark, cloudy, cold and not much fun. Started the liquid diet for the colonoscopy tomorrow and not much fun. I will manage some exercise today, but no bike riding for me today. Think I will work on the photo albums for Christmas.... Read more
