We were hoping to get some family exercise done, but the weather didn't cooperate. Instead, we played some board games and then went bowling. Bowling was a lot of fun and isn't too expensive at our small town bowling alley. I got a 166! My a... Read more

I've had to review my thyroid/adrenal meds again. Ov... Read more

Day 104-Zumba with my daughter
Well, it took a while, but we finally figured out how to do multi-player on my Zumba game for the Xbox Kinect. Mary (12) really had fun doing a couple of single routines with me. She has no experience dancing, so it was fun watching her try to... Read more
My body is sore again today, and TOM hit, so I forced myself to only walk. I did two miles in 32 minutes. I'm hoping that will get some of the lactic acid build up out of my muscles and give my body a little bit of a break.

Today I decided to swim for my workout. I did 30 minutes including 1000 backstrokes (2x500). I figured my joints could use a break, and I think I'll try to jog tomorrow with the warmer temps. Hopefully, it won't be so windy.
A strange th... Read more
