Coincidentally, right as I rejoined Weight Watchers, my work has started a health plan. We’ve all formed teams & set goals & been issued new pedometers. Our team is going to work on increasing our number of steps each day, and weight loss. The program officially starts June 25, but of course I’m not waiting until then to implement changes. I’ve already been walking every day & watching what I eat.
Speaking of walking – my hip does not hurt when I walk. However, my legs each weigh 400 pounds & everything else hurts (ok, really just my right calf, but I’m doing stretches to help with that). But anyway, My Hip Does Not Hurt. Hallelujah and Amen.
It’s felt like there’s been a lot of bad news lately – a friend’s mom is in critical condition with an infection, another friend’s dad has prostate cancer, another friend is going through an unknown crisis. I don’t live anywhere near these folks, so I feel helpless to do more than just pray for them. But I guess that’s something.
Dr. M & I surveyed our kingdom yesterday. Our hanging baskets are gorgeous. We have daisies, mums & lilies about to bloom. There are blossoms on the volunteer tomato plant. The yarrow is out of control. AND he bought me new gardening tools the other day – I’m planning on planting some more flowers. That way I’m adding an upper body workout to my regimen.
I am bereft of poetry lately. Every time I try to write something the words are just not there. I think that I’ll enjoy the quietness in my head & watch the world in our back yard for a while.
