Things Can Change Very Quickly

The last couple of weeks, Chester has had some ups and downs that I attributed to the packing, moving, unpacking, losing his yard, etc. Most of his ups were when I took him back to the house, so he could hang out in his yard while I did more packing and cleaning – which fit… Continue reading Things Can Change Very Quickly

FitBit Update January, 2016

FitBit just sent me my annual report for 2015.  I don’t remember getting a report last year, but I’d only had my FitBit for a couple of months, so it probably wasn’t too impressive. Looking at the stats on Walking 4 Fun, this is what is see – but this covers right back to the… Continue reading FitBit Update January, 2016


On Monday, Chester wasn’t interested in eating his breakfast.  This never happens – not since he has been on the seizure meds that make him hungry all the time.  He also had diarrhea and just didn’t have any bounce in his usual bouncy step. I cleaned him up before going to work – all that… Continue reading Chester

Another Day – Another Year

It is amazing how days blend into weeks, which blend into months and before you know it – another year has come and gone. Good-bye to 2015 and hello to 2016. Chester is doing great.  It has been 3 1/2 years since his last seizure.  He had to slow down a bit for a few… Continue reading Another Day – Another Year

FitBit Update #3

I am continuing on yesterday’s theme of wanting to make sure I stay in good health.  I have been blessed with good health for all of my life except for an occasional short detour along the way.  It is easy to take it for granted when it has always been there. My only problem right… Continue reading FitBit Update #3

Overnight Oatmeal

Very slowly I have been converting to somewhat healthier eating over the last few months.  I still have a long way to go, but have found some keepers in the healthy type foods.  One that I now eat 2 – 3 times per week is Flax and Blueberry Overnight Oats.  By clicking the link, you… Continue reading Overnight Oatmeal

FitBit Update #2

I have now had my FitBit for just under 4 months and I’m happy to say that it still motivates me to keep moving and to slowly make healthy changes to my diet. In the last week I received notification that I have now lost 15 lbs.  🙂 That is not a lot in 4… Continue reading FitBit Update #2
