Healthy October Update:
I'm still walking that mile plus every day! I had started walking back on July 1st and wrote it on a calendar page the first month and created a habit. I hope this habit stays with me forever! My body feels so much better after I walk!
Now in October, I added a little extra. My sweet new neighbor invited me to visit a nearby senior center where she is taking an Arthritis Exercise Class. Although it is painful at times, it seems to help, especially the arthritis in my hands. So I go (and wear makeup) every Tuesday and Thursday. We do our movements sitting in a chair. The cost is the membership in the senior center, $4 a month. The first two weeks were very painful, and I thought about quitting, but I decided to stick it out.

As for weight loss, I am still losing and gaining the same 4 lbs over and over and over. I've planned and written in a food diary each week since August 1st but have been inconsistent with food choices. In other words, I've eaten off plan.
A big disappointment has been that my doctor has "suggested" I add another medication to my list. The walking and exercise has been great, but I still need to lose 20 lbs for him to start reducing my medication. Diabetes is a bad disease. No other way to say it.
Thank you for visiting today! Let's go for a walk around the lake! They have a great salad at the restaurant by the marina. Hope you are having a healthy October!
