Saturday strengthening my resolve

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Started the day out with a trip to the health fair - blood work, eye exam for diabetic retinopathy, carotid artery check for stroke risk, body composition evaluation, lots of freebies and handouts.

From there I went to the pool for several hours. Very good workout and also relaxing.

I came home afterward and am going to relax and spend some time reading.

The carotid artery check was quick and easy but I had never had it done before. It showed some plaque but very minimal on both sides. The diabetic retinopathy screening was also very positive - no evidence of any issues and after I left, they came looking for me and asked if they could take my picture and use it in a magazine article for the hospital system sponsoring the health fair.

I lost 2 pounds this week so it looks like I am getting back on track. Time will tell whether it is a fluke or the real thing.

The weather is awesome, cool and sunny with a light breeze.

Tomorrow is Sunday and church is always a highlight of my week.

Have an amazing rest of your weekend and make it a healthy and kind one!
