Today I took a few minutes to go over to a nearby park and have a walk in the fresh air. I'm so glad I did - I came home more energised and in a better frame of mind even though I wasn't in a bad mood beforehand, I just felt BETTER for having b... Read more

The highlight of my day was seeing a little tiny 2x2 inch photo of my parents stepping out of the church they were just married in. It's the only photo I know of from the day they married. They look so happy! Sadly it didn't last 'forever', bu... Read more

I had two highlights today. The first was that I watched a few videos on how to use a rowing machine properly. The last several times I've used it my knees hurt during and afterwards - and that's not supposed to happen so I figured I was doing ... Read more

My highlight today was my weekly Sunday walk at the beach. I got some great photos, some much needed cooler air and I'd already reached my step goal so the extra half hour of walking was just a bonus. OH, and the sunset was gorgeous! ... Read more

Last week my husband had his last massive-dose chemo (he'll be recovering from that for a few weeks yet) and today he had his last radiotherapy session. So the next few weeks will be about recovery and repair of all the good cells that got hit ... Read more

I thought I'd post an update as it's been awhile and so much has happened in the last few months. Our world was turned upside down in February when my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer - stage 3B. It was really iffy there for awhile but t... Read more

I saw the Gastro guy on Monday and he's arranging for me to have an iron transfusion (actually 2 of them - one a week after the first one) as soon as it can be arranged. Then I'll have further tests to find out why my hemoglobin and iron droppe... Read more

About the 3rd week in August I woke up feeling dreadful. My tremors were the worst they've ever been, I had a migraine headache, was very tired. The first couple days I dragged myself around the house getting my 6k steps in 500 steps at a time a... Read more

Yesterday I wrote about getting a new reflex boxing trainer and gloves to add to my cardio workouts and mentioned I wasn't sure where to put it. Our livingroom / gym is pretty full. Well, after sleeping on the idea, I have hatched a plan that w... Read more

Well it took me long enough! I saw a kickboxing 10 minute workout on Sparkpeople awhile back and I've wanted to actually work out to it but wasn't sure how to go about it. Watching and exercising using my tablet seemed a bit hard to see the tr... Read more

Today I thought I'd try two ball exercises but put the ball on my exercise mat like it shows in Coach Nicole's demonstrations. Oh, that really didn't work for me for some reason. Even the same ball exercise (slow swimming) I did the other day I... Read more

I've had a few good days. Yesterday I had a Diabetes Care Plan appointment with the nurse and my GP. All the tests were reasonably good aside from the usual anemia (not related to iron) and my hba1c was 6.0. The best part was I had the nurse m... Read more
