Sunday, April 28, 2013      11 comments

Oh MY What a RIDE! Within the first mile I was all choked up, tearful and just filled to overflowing with pure JOY! I had forgotten, but then remembered: I've felt this way before. A time that seemed so long ago. No nattering ins... Read more
Functional Workouts: Love 'em!
Saturday, April 27, 2013      13 comments

My idea of a "functional workout" is one where I'm accomplishing something beyond working my body. You know, stuff like shoveling snow, mowing the lawn, moving a couple tons of 40# wood pellet bags, etc. One addition to the list in the past has ... Read more

Thursday, April 18, 2013      13 comments

Too long no blog! In responding to someone else's blog I had some thoughts on hunger: Hunger is such a tricky thing...I can set myself up with BUSHELS of veggies for snacking and later still find myself "hungry" for calorie-dense foods of s... Read more

Monday, February 18, 2013      16 comments

Well, I have certainly fared better than I feared and am back home, but there are some "kickers" I didn't know when I wrote my last blog which have been hard to deal with: Having to give myself belly injections of (forget what it's called) ... Read more

It all began last Friday with my decision that I've been a wuss long enough about needles and it was time for me to get over it and donate blood at our employer's blood drive. Well...? I flunked! Couldn't donate blood! Why? My pulse was onl... Read more
