It is offical...I am OLD! I am now on high blood pressure meds, a diuretic, and a anti-0steo w/vitamin D. If I don't take these, the Dr. told me my quality of life would diminish as in no biking, increased headaches with strong risk of a stroke (from the bad ol' days when I smoked)and other factors.
The good news is my mammo came back clean and I got A+++ on all my blood tests. I am even sounding old today, obsessing over my health...sorry about that.
In an effort to stave off some of the aging side effects, E and I are making some life changes....not too many but a few that are long overdue. We are going to walk 30min. at least 4x a week (I'll try to bike in between since I love it so) and we have started South Beach again. We could both take off 30lbs and be much healthier people. South Beach worked for us before we went to Italy and we are aware of our need to take off weight for good.
We had a great walk this morning but went way beyond our 30 min. The park gate was open on our way home and we roamed through. We saw such beautiful wild flowers and the birds were singing their little hearts out. E still has not seen the river from the park or the fishing dock or the beach there but we can save those to look forward to.
I've been scrapping! I finished two layouts and have 2 more all blocked out. Creative Escape, while it was not the "life altering" experience a few women said they had, was impetus for me to get back in the groove!
