One that encompasses both heart and diabetic guidelines with weight-loss and taste, something I can and will stick to. I weigh in on the 1st, the first three months of the year will be the Biggest Loser contest at work. February and March are our Polar Bear Club months where we count the distances we walk, run, jog and whoever has the highest mileage wins. Then we start into walking season, I have several events I plan on being in. I have been cleared by my cardiologist to start running this year if I wish.

Wow that hurts. If this is what arthritis feels like, then my sympathy for people who have arthritis has just made a mega jump.
Cold is the enemy of arthritis. The cold from the freezer diving, a cold wind blowing across your hand. rinsing a glass off in cold water, anything can set off arthritis. The do have medication for the pain and development of arthritis, but do your research before you agree to take any of it. Some of them have nasty side effects. My sister had rheumatoid arthritis. That is the kind that twists your fingers in some crazy and weird shapes. Very painful. The doctors had her going through some of the meds. Some she stopped after one day. Some worked for a while.

My index fingers on both hands are twice the size they are supposed to be and twisted. I also have arthritis in my hip and spine. That is the one that gives me the most trouble and pain.

It doesn't take much to set off the pain of arthritis. Good luck.

My neighbors on both sides are off on vacation, one to India and the other to Washington DC. Both entrusted me with their car keys so I could move their cars if necessary to facilitate plowing.

We have 8" of snow and now I have to clear off and move three cars. Damn!

Bummer. No remote start?
That's a big responsibility.

All done! The snow was light and easy to move. Got three cars cleared off and moved. The bobcat guy came and cleaned out all our parking spaces.

Then SO and I went to help out some of the really old folks clean off their cars and move them.

Time for coffee.
