Hi All! Well I'm finally back... been a long couple of weeks trying to recuperate from my shoulder surgery and I am now happy to report that I am sooo very happy that it's all behind me. Surgery went well and now I am looking at starting PT next Tuesday for about 12 weeks. Dr. says as long as I do what I suppose to do then he sees no reason why I won't be back kayaking in the spring. Guess Nicki has to be a good girl. Thankl you everyone for your thoughts and prayers and beautiful cards.
Laying around in a recliner for the past couple of weeks gave me plenty of time to think about things. One thing I have decided is that I have got to try and take better care of myself now that I've hit that big 60! So.. starting tomorrow I am embarking on a new exercise program = a slow by st4eady one at that. My girlfriend Elaine came over today for a visit and one look at her was pure inspiration. She has reached her goal of loosing quite a bit of weight and she looks Maaarvelous. She told me of a great program - www.Couchto5k.com so I looked it up, printed out the schedule and will get started tomorrow. I feel my writing it down here will hold me accountable to report in each week as to how I am doing. I need to do this to get myself moving and feeling healthy again... slow and steady. Anyone want to join me in keeping up with a weekly log in of how we are doing? Seriously, if you are, contact me as I would love a partner!
I did manage to get a little bit of CQ in. I completed my June CQJP 2012 Block - as you can see it is a bit out of my normal color range. This block was actually part of a CQ Block swap and I was sorry to see it go to it's new owner - I love the way it turned out.
