She's having surgery on Wednesday to have stents put in two blocked carotid arteries leading in her neck. This is something that had to be postponed, of course, due to the accident last August. Now that she's recovered from most of those injuri... Read more

I went Nordic walking with the group from church yesterday and it was perfect weather. We had a great time, but about halfway up one of the hills, I started feeling woozy - blood suger level dropped. And I had to take the rest of the walk real s... Read more

It's May! Today's my first day of tracking calories and fitness on Spark. I've been faithful about tracking cardio on the Fresh Start team challenge. And last week I passed Day 200 of my daily exercise streak. But I'm still 8 kilos over goal wei... Read more

Thanks, everyone for your concern and prayers! With my trip one short week away, I'm VERY glad to report that the shingles are going away. I did NOT like the thought of sitting on the shingles (yep, that's where they chose to locate) al... Read more

Ran the Beach Bum 5K! The sand was pretty firm, although it got chewed up by all the runners during the course of the race. Challenging for the calves, and I'm sure I'll feel it tomorrow! I finished in under 40 minutes and didn't walk at all, so... Read more
