I finally got back on the eliptical machine today...34 minutes started slow & only went to level 3 this time. I feel much better now, we'll see what morning brings. Thanks for all the positive advice. It stuck in my head what you submitted rock lobster. Thanks I needed that.

You could try soaking in a hot bath. You just have to remember to do it in the evening. It's too late the next day when you hurt. Ask me how I know

I miss a bathtub so much. We bought this house 3 years aago & only have a shower. But a hot shower feels good. How do you know?

I found that Dollar Tree has a large bag of flax seeds, so I got that and plan to incorporate it into my granola. But for today I just sprinkled it over the granola that I ate as cereal. The seeds were a little chewy, but I hope that when I bake it into the granola they will get crunchy.

Flax seed is yummy. If you want to get the benefit of all the omega 3 fatty acids in flax, you should grind the seeds before you add them to your granola or cereal. They can be ground in a blender or coffee grinder. If you don't grind them, most of them will just pass right through you.

We grind them in our blender. I add them to cereal and smooties.

How does that work with baking bread with flax seed?

I tried to get some extra walking in at the park yesterday. My knees are killing me today. I have been gimping around at work most of the afternoon. Arthritis in the knees where the doc. says lose weight. It feels like a losing battle some days.

The elliptical has less impact on your joints, much better if you have arthritis in your knees.
