This week in food and fitness

I’ve cooked too much food over the course of the last two or three months. I blame my Instant Pot. Yes, it’s as wonderful as everyone says it is, but all of the recipes I tried were designed to feed the family. I am but one woman with a husband who refuses to eat the […]

Thinking about the body

Yesterday I’m at my local Planet Fitness recovering from my 20-minute treadmill walk and a smattering of strength training. I need this recovery period to get my legs working a little better. I’m uncomfortable crossing the road to get to my car. Today I’m at home on the couch continuing the post. I’ve been thinking […]

I’m hoping that every exercise I do causes my brain to make new and better connections.  OT (occupational therapy) at 9:45. Yesterday I […]

I had to take technique classes with the undergraduate students. They were better dancers than I was, […]

A Plan for This Week

I’ve got a plan for this week. I’m trying to make the muscle spasms in my legs stop by increasing my exercise time, and adding a magnesium supplement. If things don’t improve I’ll have to go to the doctor and see if she wants to test me for MS. I’m really scared that I might […]
