Tai Chi and Gentle Yoga Classes Yesterday
Saturday, December 02, 2017      10 comments

On Fridays, these classes are held back-to-back and I tried them both. I've done one of each about a year ago. As I've written before, it really depends upon the teacher as to how much you enjoy them. I keep trying to force myself to do y... Read more
A Friend's Emergency Yesterday
Friday, December 01, 2017      12 comments

Last night around 5 p.m. I got a text from a friend who was in Urgent Care getting an emergency infusion and was on her second IV. She'd had blood tests done a few days ago, and her doc wanted her back pronto after the results were in. Her... Read more
Should I Stay or Should I Go (to the Rose Parade)
Thursday, November 30, 2017      11 comments

I have the chance to buy a trip to the Rose Parade and sit in the bleachers. Have to decide in the next day or two since it sells out fast. That means waking up at 3 a.m. But a once in a lifetime experience. My SP blog has been technol... Read more
Shingles in the News
Wednesday, November 29, 2017      10 comments

I have mentioned in so many blogs that I'm so thankful to have had a healthy year after 2016 with shingles nerve pain. I would rank it right up there with child birth pain, maybe worse. Yesterday, there was a short report with three MD's t... Read more
Sweet Lemons (!!!), Blog Honestly, Heatwave Gone (Finally!)
Tuesday, November 28, 2017      14 comments

I cut some lemons and proceeded to use them over fish I'd cooked. Then I tasted the fish and thought, how did this fish turn out to be sweet? So I added more lemon. Of course, I then smelled the lemon and it was sweet! I'd gotten this from a... Read more
Suppressed Sugar Study, Holidays, Misc.
Monday, November 27, 2017      12 comments

Last week, I read about a sugar study done in the 60's that was suppressed because it showed links between sugar and various diseases, including cancer. I wonder if we would have had a head start in eating healthier if we'd have known the detri... Read more

Wednesday, November 22, 2017      13 comments

RIP David Cassidy. He was part of sweet, simpler times. Another sad passing. Life is tough, and then we die. That used to be said as a joke, but it is a stark reality. I have been so thankful for good health this year after last year's ... Read more
Glad I Never Pack My Summer Clothes Away
Tuesday, November 21, 2017      10 comments

Weather has been wonky for awhile now; they are predicting record high temps this week. Really? I know it sounds wonderful to all of you buried in the white stuff, but I wanted a bit of respite from summer heat. Wishing all a Happy Than... Read more
My Lazy Bone Self Almost Won
Sunday, November 19, 2017      11 comments

I was waiting for the place to open at 8 this morning, and sitting in my car all ready for a new Zumba class. Suddenly, I got the strongest urge to just leave and go home. Almost had myself convinced when my high self took command and told me ... Read more
Gentle Yoga, Pool Aerobics, Tai Chi, RIP Malcolm Young
Saturday, November 18, 2017      11 comments

I may become a fitness addict. (smiling) Honestly, I'm starting to enjoy these new classes so much. I returned to the pool today after a couple of weeks and decided that I am going to try to do pool moderation. Maybe once or twice a week. Tod... Read more
My Second Zumba Class (different instructor)
Friday, November 17, 2017      14 comments

As with any type of class, so much depends upon the instructor. My first Zumba was lead by one of the toughest at this gym. He was like a back-up dancer for Madonna. No kidding. Today was a very different vibe and paced more easily to ... Read more
But I Wanna! Will the Child or Adult in Me Win About the Pool Concerns?
Tuesday, November 14, 2017      13 comments

Honestly, I have a decision to make regarding the pool aerobics class and sometimes I analyze and research a topic endlessly, which can become counter-productive. I'm so disappointed about the possibility of chlorine being a trigger for me ... Read more
Another Reason I'm Sunk w/My Pool Aerobics
Saturday, November 11, 2017      10 comments

I had come to grips with how to deal with the chlorine in the pool since I found several websites indicating how it affects the skin. But what I didn't remember from a couple of years ago was another point. My main sensitivity is my respir... Read more
Not Sure Whether to Continue Water Aerobics
Friday, November 10, 2017      13 comments

I've enjoyed the new pool class for the past couple of months, but put it on hold after attending on Monday. After researching the long term effects of chlorine, I just don't know what to do. The list starts simply with itching, rashes, etc. ... Read more
