Last Blog As Jhadzhia, Shutting Down
I have had health problems since the day I was born. Lost some of my hearing because they thought I was a colicky baby when in reality I was having serious ear infections. It didn't stop there and my life was a relentless chain of one health ... Read more
Mom, Super Recycler!
I was proceeding to throw out my pill bottles, when Mom said no, recycle them. She has boxes set aside for glass, paper, cardboard and plastic. She even takes the labels off everything she can and washes them out! She gets NOTHING for this tr... Read more
Lots of exercise today. Woke up and saw some ice flows going down river so we wondered if the ice above the weir was breaking up and going over the falls. As it was morning and cold and frozen, we drove down, but once there and saw the trail w... Read more
Work Wednesday And Note To My Friends
The only reason I stay with Sparks now that I have learned an awful lot about a healthy lifestyle is I may be on maintenance, but I have lots of friends who are still on their journeys, who I care about and want to be there for them until they a... Read more
Shutting Down This Spark Page and Opening A Private Page.
I love Spark people and love interacting with my Spark buddies, but its become rather out of control. I used to spend hours in front of the TV, a classic couch potato. Now while I stopped watching TV as part of my healthy lifestyle, but sorry,... Read more

Hurt and Sore :(
I did my regular 75 minutes of exercise this morning, then moved on to my physiotherapy exercises. I was doing the rotator cuff exercises with a light weight, and my elbow didn't feel so good performing this. Don't know why, I have done it bef... Read more

Had a busy day, 75 minutes exercise, then physio appointment, then off to Costco, then home for lunch then off again to spend time looking around the big Wal*Mart. We didn't get home until 5 pm! I decided to get out for a walk before the sunse... Read more
I only see my rheumatologist once a year. She was very pleased with my blood test, saying everything was so good in spite of having this disease for most of my life. She also admires how fit and healthy I am, that I am not getting infections i... Read more
First Live Fitness Class -One Hour Step!
After my usual morning 45 minute walk with weights and my 35 minutes of kickboxing, then later some speed walking to and from the club, I wasn't sure if I could handle this one hour evening step class. I am not big on evening exercise and it wo... Read more
Bad Weigh In :(
Another cold, windy, dreary overcast day. Right setting for bad news. I am up to 130 lbs. I should be 121. That is the magic line crossing number. Got to hope something breaks soon and I can get back home into my routine and normal eating h... Read more
Hello? Can I Speak To A Human Being, Please???
If there is one thing I really hate, its those automated messaging systems.
Press 1 if you are a patient press 2 if this is a Dr. calling. Press 3 to confirm an appointment. If this is an emergency call your family Dr. or 911. My rheu... Read more
