Baffled by Friend's Doc's Diabetes Advice
Wednesday, December 27, 2017      12 comments

Ever since my friend was diagnosed with diabetes about four weeks ago, her doc has been very nonchalant about her treatment. For example, she went in with her number being 620 and they gave her infusions to bring it down. When they reached... Read more

Friday, December 22, 2017      10 comments

I used to bring my son to Star Wars when he was a kid, and now he gets a kick out of taking me. It's not my fave film, but I cherish this little tradition that we have going on and it's fun. Leaving in a little while to catch the morning show ... Read more
Today's "Muscle Up" Class Instructor was Bigger than I Am
Wednesday, December 20, 2017      11 comments

And what a relief among skeletal bodies, that there is a realistic-looking instructor who maintains her fitness despite extra weight. I've been foregoing classes for a couple of weeks as I enjoy solo exercise more, but I decided to get back to ... Read more

"The Cheese and Pepperoni on My PIzza are Healthy"
Monday, December 18, 2017      12 comments

I try to help two relatives whenever possible by giving them good advice on eating healthy. (without being a meddling busy body) They are the worst eaters in the world and I marvel that they are still above ground due to all the garbage they ea... Read more

Thursday, December 14, 2017      10 comments

I visited the store where the other two chapters occurred and noticed that the temptations were sold out. For those who recommended eating fresh raspberries instead, I do that all year round. Then I turned the corner and noticed that they had b... Read more
"Hi there, Slim"
Wednesday, December 13, 2017      15 comments

This is how a friend addresses me frequently these days, and it catches me off-guard each time. He then follows it up by telling me that all of my hard work at these various exercise classes is showing. Nothing like a NSV to make my day! ... Read more

Raspberry Pie, Muscle-Up Class, Fire Anxiety in SoCal
Friday, December 08, 2017      13 comments

I'll start off with trivial stuff to take my mind off of the heavy stuff. I'm having a very hard time eliminating sugar. I always thought it gets easier with time if you've been off of something in the recent past, but it's actually harder fo... Read more

Bundled Up, New Class Yesterday, Whatever Else Pops Into My Head
Wednesday, December 06, 2017      9 comments

I often marvel at SP friends who live in cold regions and how they got outside no matter what and walk, run, and do a variety of other physical activities. I marvel because, when it gets cold here, I just want to roll up in a ball and come out ... Read more

Please keep SoCal in your thoughts and/or prayers; windy and dry is a very bad combo for this area. Just paid for and confirmed my Rose Parade trip. A friend is also going, so it'll be a lovely day. Plus, this is a cosmic connection as ... Read more
