Hanging in there on maintenance!

Friday, August 31, 2018

Hi Everyone!
It's been a busy time, and I have not been very good and keeping up on writing.

Anyway, maintenance is a challenge but I'm hanging in there! I checked in at the clinic and met with the people there and I am spot on! Whew! Not easy and I am learning a lot along the way.

By the way, I met a goal last month on July 24th. I rode my bike 102.69 miles and had a 3000 foot elevation gain that ride. Wow! It was a warm day here in Utah but I just hung in there! What an adventure. Not bad for a grandma!

Tomorrow is surgery for a torn tendon in my right foot. No idea how that happened but I put off surgery as long as I could. I look forward to having that foot not hurting!

I'm busy helping my mom, 92 years young. She is now in hospice care, but doing well considering everything.

Cute hubby retired! It is so great to have my best friend not working now!

Take care all you wonderful Sparky friends! This healthy journey may not be easy, but it is so worth it!

    Judy, you are such a loving, generous person. Reading in another of your blogs about caring for your cousin and in this blog about looking out for your mother, I think you are just really, really unselfish and...happy. To devote yourself so willingly to others is just a great way to live.

    Yay! Cute hubby retired! Now you two lovebirds can spend more time together!

    Sounds like you HAVE had a busy summer, and things will STILL be busy after your surgery! You're right about maintenance - I think it takes awhile to figure it out. Glad you're still being mindful and having success. And it's GREAT news that DH will be able to hang out more!
