Just a blur, a whirlwind of activity! Didn't make the time to walk, and didn't track my foods, although I suspect I am just over calorie range for the day. Not a good start to the month of August; its fresh beginning opportunity esca... Read more

Another early morning rise. Quiet. Peaceful. Relaxing. Coffee. Sparking. Reflections. Organize my day.
If there is a better way to start a day, I don't know it.

Decided to skip the Ibuprofen last night so I could see what I am dealing with regarding the sciatica and just how bad it really is. Put up with the pain to get out for a 4 mile walk in a misting rain. At least I could use my normal gait. I... Read more
