Soup without the high sodium

With having flu this week I didn't have much of an appetite.
I took a can of chicken noodle soup and added 3 cans water instead of one.
Stir fried some frozen peas, carrots and onions and added them to the soup for extra nutrition.
Very tasty without the concentrated salt.

Walking in spite of pain

I make an endeavor to walk 2 miles every day that I am not going to the gym. Sometimes due to major feet and knee problems I may only get to do 1 mile. My walk involves steep uphill roads as I live in the mountain area of BC.

Organizing with Physical challenges

With physical challenges and your house is a mess, attack it like a stone rather than a mountain -- one room at a time and rest inbetween chores. This will save your sanity and your energy and make you have a sense of accomplishment.
