Pokemon Go
Sunday, July 17, 2016      11 comments

We went out to board game night at the local store. It was fun. I killed at scrabble. Out the window, we noticed tons of kids walking around looking at their phones. They were all playing Pokemon Go. It seriously increased the foot traffic on th... Read more
Back to walking again
Thursday, June 30, 2016      10 comments

It's been a week since my bee sting on my big toe, and I can finally wear socks & sneaks comfortably. I went for a short walk, just 30 minutes, because it began to rain. My freelance business is slowly coming along. Ds17 is getting re... Read more
Bee Sting
Thursday, June 23, 2016      8 comments

I was walking in my back yard in flip flops, picking up sticks that fell from the tree, when I felt a sharp pain in my big toe. I look down & there's a dead bee on my flip flop, and a stinger in my toe. Damn! I took out the stinger & went inside... Read more
Knee update
Saturday, June 11, 2016      8 comments

thank you for the well wishing yesterday! I drove 1 hour to the knee doctor yesterday, and found out that my knee dr isn't covered by my new insurance. Another doctor may be, so I'll look around. I'm not getting my 10,000 steps in daily because ... Read more
Knee Dr today

I'm taking better care of myself. I went to the eye dr. My astigmatism was so bad, I have double vision. I ordered glasses & sunglasses online. I'm seeing the knee dr today, to get a shot, and Rx. The Rx is for a anti-inflammatory, a Rx strength... Read more

I walk 3 miles, every other day: 1.5 miles out, and 1.5 miles back. On my way back today, I found a fitbit on the sidewalk. I felt for mine...it must have fallen off. Even though I didn't know it was missing, I was so grateful to find it. And th... Read more

Low cholesterol diet
Friday, May 20, 2016      7 comments

The results of my blood work are in. My cholesterol is a little too high. I was asked if I wanted to start Lipitor & I said yes. He also wants me on a low cholesterol diet. I'm new to the concept, and will have to do my research. But so far I've... Read more

My brother in law, age 50, had a heart attack on Saturday. I was so surprised, because that's so young. BIL doesn't even eat red meat. But, as is brother pointed out, that was the same age as his father & grandfather had their first heart attack... Read more
I need to work to feel good
Wednesday, May 04, 2016      11 comments

At the start of my day, I thought I had one new contract, and working coming in from one existing contract. The first fell through. I'm OK with that, because it wasn't much money. But, when the existing client said the expected files weren't com... Read more

Walking
Wednesday, April 27, 2016      13 comments

When I go for a walk, I usually bring my iPod to listen to something. I walk the same route, about an hour. I walk 3 mph, which is slow. It's not a cardio workout. I call it functional movement. It builds up endurance, so that if I'm ever on vac... Read more
Why am I doing this?
Friday, April 22, 2016      13 comments

I was having dinner. A full serving of dinner, even though I had a binge in the afternoon, when no one else was around. Sneak eating is my shameful secret. I ate dinner, and I was stuffed. Even though I wanted to lose weight, I still was binge e... Read more
