MNABOY'S RAILS TO HEALTH

Due to many reasons I carried too much weight for too long and am paying the price now. SP was on my computer for two years before my back got it on my mind and in my life. I lost 150 pounds and since November 2013 have regained 37 pounds. 5% challenge will be my tool of motivation and an additional accountability. A better attitude may help as well.

Fitness Minutes: 183,668

My Goals:
It is my goal to reach 200 pounds.

My Program:
Tracking everything I eat and drink and staying under 1900 calories a day. I plan to walk 3.2 to 5 miles a day 6 days a week.

Personal Information:
I live in east Arkansas on "The River" and am blessed to have the delta and Crowley's Ridge which provides unlimited outdoor activity and sports. Also, we have a great history created over the years and have Civil War sites recreated as well as original sites preserved. We have one of the largest Blues Festivals in the world. Always something great happening.

Other Information:
I always thought I would retire and my wife and I would hike and camp, sans Scouts, just the two of us, and I would write an article about the railroads in my home county. Physically we will have to work to be able to hike flat ground!

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Since I had worked in health care before, I went and really checked this out. It is absolutely fabulous. There is an independent living facility next door and they are building an Assisted living facility up the street where the old nursing center used to be. We have not regretted this at all. Mom's medicare/medicaid/Social Security pays it. She has a double room bed space taht also has a roomie. A short wall and a curtain provides a little privacy. Each room space has a huge bath with very nice walk-in/roll-in shower. The sink area is outside the bath just inside the entry of the room. I take care of cable which is only $6 a month- each resident has own wall mounted flat screen TV, and I still pay her landline phone which we got the lifeline plan for her. You have to have that done on your own. I keep a little money in her spending account there to pay for perms, and anything she might need from town. They go town each Saturday and get things for the residents if needed. of course, my sister lives there so, she pretty well takes care of that. if you're over there, go and ask for a tour. If she doesn't feel like attending her church service every Sunday morning in the chapel, she can turn on TV and watch it live on in-house channel. There is a waiting list for long-term care. They also provide short-term rehab.
