I need to start writing again. I admire the richness of the characters and the depth of storytelling in maeve binchy’s books.
Maeve Binchy retired then wrote one more book.
An aunt who loves to write urged me to write a book since Maeve is retiring, I could possibly write books as rich and full as Mrs. Binchy’s books!
A goal to have anyway!
My life is finally more in order! I moved across the country, settled into a new job and a charming apartment in an adorable small town, and what’s left now is to focus on my health. I want to join the local YMCA which is quite upscale – and work out in a room they have set aside for those who haven’t worked out in awhile.
It’s a room with privacy and a staff member always in there to answer questions, help you become familiar with the new machines, etc. So you don’t feel like a klutz out there in theh open with all the experienced work-out people diligently working out and looking fabulous in their outfits.
I think I’ll enjoy working out in private for the 12 week session, and then I’ll enjoy joining the rest of the members in the cardio section.
This Y is halfway between my home and my job – so 8 minutes to the gym, workout in the morning and get ready for work – then 8 minutes to work. Not so bad!
My mom was hospitalized for high BP when I was in high school. Her high number was over 200 when it was checked in a routine doctor’s visit. She was admitted to the hospital immediately and has been on medication every since.
I went in for a virus/sinus thing I had and was put on medication but my BP was tested at 170/110 and in four days, it lowered only to 170/105. Now, a week after going on medication, it tested at 140/84. Getting better after a week. Giving up caffeine (and all soda) probably helped.
I now want to work out regularly and eat less – thus lowering my weight and becoming healthier. I don’t want to be on this medication forever – although I’m grateful that it’s working.
