School has been out about a week. I had hoped to have a better start with eating right and exercise, but some kind of start is better than no start, right? I have done quite a bit of walking. I have even gotten Tommy to join me a time or two.... Read more

I have gone almost a week drinking my 8 glasses of water a day. I read somewhere that being hydrated may help a person's balance. Before being intentional about hydration I would trip a lot and I would have troubled balancing on the Wii Fit boa... Read more
I probably need more sleep
Tuesday, March 20, 2012      5 comments

At some point I need to address my sleep habits again. I like having "white noise" in the background when I am in bed. But that has morphed into watching TV. If I understand correctly, lack of sleep increases hormones that cause us to eat mor... Read more

Swimming again
Thursday, December 29, 2011      1 comments

I have swam twice this week and have enjoyed it. I have missed swimming. Why do we sometimes let things we enjoy (and that are healthy for us) go by the wayside? Take a backseat to other things? I still only have a tentative schedule, but so ... Read more
