I'm currently between that rock and hard place we all know and love so well and trying to move both ends at the same time hasn't gotten me much of anywhere.

In trying to move either end just a bit, this is my proposal, which I actually put into place Sunday, 05/03/20...

I commit to getting as many exercise minutes in every day of the week as I can without jeopardizing my knees, my job or my sleep.

Strength & Stretching - Upper Body:
Weights, bands and balancing - 3X per week, 4 sets/super sets 3 reps of each set, per session.

Rehab stretching exercises daily until all moves and reps are complete. (Generally 10 - 15 minutes).

Strength and Stretching - Lower Body:
Rehab exercises with Weights, balls and bands - committing to 3 times per week, but hoping to do at least half of them on a daily basis until all moves and reps are complete.

Chair or floor dancing, 30 to 60 minutes spread out through the week.

Walking inside or out for 10 to 15 minutes per day other than the rehab walking exercises; 3X per week.

Under desk elliptical 5 days per week 5 to 10 minutes per use.

I'm following the low carb/Ketogenic way of life, have come a long way but recently had a setback. It's been quite a while since I was able to committed entirely to myself and it's overdue. I'm trying to get my ducks in a row and regain what I've lost.

I'm my own worst enemy and I need to get past that. I've found my new mantra:

  • v COOKWITHME65 the hospital and a complete wreck. I am beyond angry that just three weeks ago she had exploratory surgery and cat scans and they said there was no cancer. My face is swollen from crying and my throat hurts from throwing up.

    Well Jeannine Holly was so confident going into surgery I posted about it. Then when she was in recovery still sleeping we got crushing news. I made a second post if you want to read. Holly is awake now and heart broken. I'm home not able to see her

    Never make decisions based on fear, for fear is nothing more than the ‘monster under the bed.’ It does not exist, but in our mind and it can appear as truth if you allow it to. Robin Firestone
