I am 62, an Aquarius, live alone and work full-time. My days are spent walking from one piece of holy ground to the next, as is true of everyone; if only we could be more mindful of it.

What a gifted life I lead, blessings and good fortune and opportunity - all conspiring to make me happy. I recently read this: "Any God small enough for us to understand isn't big enough to do us any good. " Neat concept, huh?

Life does gets complicated all of a sudden, but then it calms down in the ebb and flow of growth. Then it cycles all over again, rinse and repeat forever and ever.

My Goals:
I would like to lose 5 pounds a month for a good long while and drop from my current 240 to about 170. No rush so do not expect to see my ticker racing. A slow descent is fine with me.

My Program:
Planet Fitness 4 x week.
(Leslie Sansone walking DVD's as an alternate.)
Calories under 1300/day.
Track my food.
Listen to the Music of the Spheres.

Personal Information:
Whirling through life but often quite down to earth. Love my two cats, sci-fi movies, any and all music (playing at all times), my e-devices, art, clothes, shoes and anything else that falls within my sight. The ultimate know-it-all Aquarius who is into everything.


Other Information:
"With reference to those few parts of the universe to which I have been exposed, I have absolutely nothing profound to say about anything at all. Not one pompous, overwrought gem of wisdom. Not even a syllable of insight. " (Me)

Spark app-- I went to Google Play and found the Sparkpeople app. It costs about $3.99 to download it. I didn't bother. I just got a new tablet for my birthday and I'm setting it up. Thought it would be a nice thing to have. Going to keep using the Spark website though. That doesn't cost anything.

Pam-thanks for your concern on my blog. I was not told that test was being done, I do not know why it was not posted and I do not know why she didn't tell me about it. I think I am more upset about this than the positive test! These are the questions for Monday: why was it not posted? why did you not tell me? trusting you as my doctor may be an issue now.

I don't know why I'm so tired. When I started exercising again I WAY overdid it. I was exhausted, my body and my joints ached. I backed way off and am feeling better. Although the exercise does make me feel better, I think I really need to be getting outside! That makes me feel healthy and strong. ST on my family room carpeting makes me feel, well, sweaty and itchy. I also suffer from bouts of depression and have finally acknowledged my need to exercise to keep me from falling in that hole.
Tests for lupus: There are at least 3 that I've had over the years.
1. C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
tests for protein levels which indicate a variety of autoimmune
diseases such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
2. Sedimentation Rate (Sed rate)
tests for inflammation caused by auto immune diseases
3. Anti-Nuclear Antibody Titer (ANA)
measures the amount of antibodies in your blood working against
your own body.

My dermatologist swears that the ANA test is THE ONE that is most accurate for auto immune diseases. My primary care doctor disagrees and has never ordered it for me, although dermatologist did. Thank goodness, I've always been negative but get a tentative diagnosis about every 10 years or so. For some reason my body likes to act like it has lupus when it really doesn't. Good luck!!

I prefer to see myself as my idol, Brenda Starr, Reporter. Yeah, I am having a blast with it. This reminds me that I need to post my latest.

Hiya, Jane Doe ~
Are you snowed in? We are getting epic, biblical rain here. I'm expecting a shower of toads any minute. (What have we done to our planet, I wonder..).
Hope you're comfy and warm out in the wild, wild east!
Take care,
Maggie
