Hot Weather Sickness

Thursday, July 30, 2015      0 comments

The past week has been unusually hot here in Michigan. So humid even going for a walk at 6AM is exhausting and hot. I have not felt well in days. My blood pressure has been all over the place. Very low one day (109) to mid-130's the next. I... Read more

It is pretty obvious that no one (or barely anyone) reads my blog. I guess I should be accepting since it lets me get things off my chest. So I will plug along on my journey.... Read more

Trying to Catch Up

Monday, July 27, 2015      2 comments

I have been lax in my sparking. There are many days were I just don't bother to log in anymore. I continue to walk and eat mostly properly. But the spark burns much more dimly for me. I need to somehow revive how excited I was before. I nee... Read more

I didn't get rained on!

Monday, July 13, 2015      2 comments

Got up and was on the trail at the park pretty early today. Rain was predicted to start around 11 so I needed to be done before that. I get so tired of getting rained on all the time. I was finishing up and eating my little piece of chees... Read more

Bike Riding Fun

Saturday, July 11, 2015      4 comments

Today was a pretty amazing day for me. Went out to dinner with a former student last night (and my two lovely DD's) and he wanted to go bike riding with me today. Okay! I'm always up for a bike ride. Headed out in the early hours. He a... Read more

Figure 8 Walk

Friday, July 10, 2015      2 comments

One day I was talking with a fellow walker that I have seen many times. She isn't particularly friendly but I mentioned about the new trail and how many extra steps it adds (if you are counting that thing, which I am). She told me she has been... Read more

Another Walk in the Rain (and what fun it was)

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday I had to buy a new pair of walking shoes. The ones that I had purchased back in the spring have been hurting my feet since my walk in Vermont during June. They still look fine and I talked with the fellow at the shoe store and he tol... Read more

Well I'm slowly getting back into my walking routine. I've also added in pushups as part of my cool down. I do them there in the park next to my car. Last week I could only do 20 but Saturday I got in 40, which really surprised me. So, of co... Read more

Another Family Day

Family picnic scheduled for today. It was raining all day so it was moved to my younger sister's house. Older brother set up a canopy that he carries around in his truck off her garage and the grills were set up there. I am giving up meat aga... Read more

New Day, New Me

Thursday, June 25, 2015      1 comments

Woke up today before 6. But today was different than it has been since returning from vacation. Today I was feeling "it" again. I got dressed immediately for a walk. I loaded the car with the recycling (since I would be near there anyway) an... Read more

My Walk (and I'm glad I did it)

Got back from Vermont late Sunday. I have been fighting the sleepies ever since. Turns out R is a night owl. She sits in bed with her computer for hours. With the lights on. It was very difficult for me to sleep. She would complain abo... Read more

Rained on Again

Wednesday, June 10, 2015      1 comments

My first night of sleep without coughing. It was wonderful. Woke up before 6 rested and ready to go. Was at the park by 6:30 thinking I would have it to myself - nope. It was actually pretty busy. Couple of guys were doing their after-exerc... Read more
