What do you need?

February 5, 2020

Talk about a big question. Many times, we are very good at disliking and avoiding the very things we need most. Be it public speaking, eating healthy or something else. I got to thinking about this when I was doing some exercise. On a very simple level, I need to do more stretching. I do […]

What do you take for granted?

I try to live a life of gratitude, but sometimes things get away from me. I notice that I take things for granted and only realize it when those things are taken from me. My ongoing experience with foot pain has served as a reminder. Maybe this time, I will learn my lesson. I try […]

How the summer was spent

Ah, summertime. Long sun-filled days, the desire to be outdoors all the time and the slower pace. I love kayaking more than anything (well, maybe not more than Peeps or chipmunks). So we’ve spent all our spare time out on the water. When I’m out there, all my problems disappear. It’s like a mini-vacation. Here […]

I just love the long, lazy days of summer. I find myself slowing down, not just because of the heat, but because everything just seems so much more relaxed now. I am happy that we get to eat our meals in the daylight. Our family room/eating area is my favorite room in the house (aside […]

For me, that’s easy.  It’s out kayaking.  I could be having the most stressful day on the planet, but when I get out on the water in my kayak, it all goes away.  I am just enjoying the fresh air, the way my boat smoothly glides through the water and all the wildlife. I am […]

All ready to go!

It is that time of year again, when we bring up our kayaks. I look forward to this all winter. We store our kayaks in the basement and have to bring them up through the bulkhead. The bulkhead is at a very awkward angle, so it is always a challenge to bring them up without […]

I know you were all on the edge of your seats this past week, just wondering what was that weird thing I posted last week. Well the wait is over. It is a stretchy band. A what???? A band you can use to perform various exercises. As part of my project to find easier workouts […]

So here we go again – more foot surgery. So much for my enhanced fitness routine – I enhanced myself into more foot injuries. I had another neuroma on the same foot as before, just a different location. Supposedly there are no more places on this foot for a neuroma to appear. Of course, there […]

Some lessons learned from Zumba

This post isn’t about becoming a better dancer. For those of you wondering what the heck is Zumba. Zumba is a mix of Latin and international dance. It’s the latest fitness craze. Alas, my Zumba dancing looks more like a spastic cockroach waving its legs. Fitness is my passion and I always enjoy learning about […]
