I overslept this morning, so no swim yet. I hope to do so after work, but I am never very energetic after work. I am ... dubious. And my stupid in-grown toenail - 1 of 2 that I possess - has become infected. What?!? That has never happened ... Read more

Friends don't let friends skip leg day.

Today was leg day, my first in about 2 months. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be, but leg day never seems easy. And it's totally necessary for strength and balance. I also got in 40 minutes of cardio! 5 on the stationa... Read more

Koo Koo Kah Choo! I swam today for the 1st time in a couple of months, at my new gym. 30 minutes! TaDa! I had a lane all to myself and the pool temp, while not ideal, didn't make me think I was going to stroke out after 5 minutes. All ... Read more

Maybe a bit excessive but the scale finally dropped appreciably!! 2 lbs! 2 whole pounds! Whoo hoo! I know, I know, way too excited for such a drop. But after not budging for a couple of weeks, I'll gladly take it! BUT WAIT! There's MOR... Read more

Early to bed...

...early to rise means I don't kill Mr. Floppy-Dead-Fish Man for waking me up several times during the night. That being said, I achieved my goal of getting to bed earlier last night. Yay! Go me! BUT WAIT, there's MORE! I got up early,... Read more

Haven't given up!

Monday, September 09, 2013      1 comments

No, I haven't given up, and I haven't surrendered! I have, however, lost 30 lbs since last December (weight via Dr.'s office scale). My A1C is 6.1. I am doing well enough that my doctor has taken me off of 1 of the 2 diabetes medications th... Read more
