    Before I get started on today's challenge, I want to take a moment to clarify a piece of my blog post from yesterday. I wrote about how my doctor recommends I add back some of the processed vegetarian foods I used to eat because of the sodium I need. Several people commented and reached out to me sa... Read more

    10/6/2015 6:55:41 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    I was doing well with staying off my bum ankle, until... Walking to the chiropractor and back, and an hour walk with the dog. I think I am going to break down and call the doctor tomorrow. Usually I would just wrap a sprain and wait it out, but the bruising is worrisome. And, maybe, with the word... Read more

  • Country Drivers

    10/6/2015 5:05:35 PM, by MELTINGSNOW62

    When I walk in the country, one of the things I notice is drivers. Most of them slow down, even if it is just a little. Most pull over, away from me—sometimes all the way into the other lane. Drivers of big farm vehicles 343 are especially courteous (maybe they realize how much air and dust th... Read more

    10/6/2015 1:01:56 PM, by NEWGRACE2015

    Well today I plan on taking it a little bit easier. I think I overdid it yesterday. I walked to much. I had to go to the grocery store and do some shopping and opted for walking instead of riding a cart. I got my steps in but in the process I felt really light headed and for some reason I felt reall... Read more

  • The bite and spit method

    10/6/2015 10:39:05 AM, by ILIKEIRISES

    This is a mental processing blog, one I wanted to log for my own records. So this week I decided to really zone in on my need for sugar and am surprised at how unconsciously I will grab a sweet and bite into it before realizing what I am doing, then run to the trash can to spit it out. ...

    My brother, Jeremy, and I went kayaking on Lake Erie this evening. It was warm enough to forgo wetsuits, but cool enough to keep almost all the motorboats off the water. That is one of the things I like best about going kayaking off season. We paddled about 12 miles in a little over 2 hours, so w... Read more
