I can't read the article right now, but I wonder if it would correlate to the horrible nightmare I spoke about on my entry today. Wierd coincidence.

For my activity: Walk 54 min (Pre-bkfst)

The early walking thing is going better than I expected--of course it would be much nicer if it were 95F instead of 35F or 45F. There are very few people out. It's certainly not exactly dark when I leave, but it's quiet (dead). It's a good departure. I think the several weeks/couple of months I put in on the NordicTrack and Airdyne (early a.m. for those workouts too) appears to have been helpful.

Umpqua on 02/03/2013:
The morning walks sound so nice and peaceful! RE your comments, the Zicam does seem to be working (along with the Cold Stop Tea, which has all sorts of good herbs in it). Now after 3 full days of it I just have a little stuffy nose remaining - usually at this point I'm at the peak of sickness with a cough and the works. I don't think I'll use it for every cold, but I needed to kick this one fast!


hollybelle on 02/03/2013:
Thanks for your comments on taking care of myself before it's so far gone....you are right. I am doing a little better. Lots of stress goig on and I just don't feel like dealing with it, but if I don't it will only add to the stress and I don't want that!

I got out to walk yesterday just as the sun was starting to come up. The sky was clear and there was little to no wind to speak of. The temp was a little above freezing. My wheels were hot a half hour into the walk:-) I walked a few hills, but recovered quickly. There was even some thick frosty grass along the way--my dog digs snow and she loved it.

Wed: Nothing
Thur: Walk 20 min
Fri: Nothing
Sat: Short Walk
Sun: Walk 25 min
Mon: NordicTrack 14 min/1.2 mi; Walk 72 min
Tues: Short Walk

My vigilance has waned, thus I am waay off track. Gotta get back into the swing of things.

We had a couple of days of just about 80F--perfect weather. I didn't get the chance to get myself acclimated to the cold to any degree so far. To try to overcome that, since it can be brutally cold (relatively speaking:-) in February and sometimes March, I'm going to make myself get up when the sun hits to take a walk. Perhaps just a plod--haha! Dog gets to go of course. I'd like to go for at least 30 min if not more. I have a Civil Twilight chart for the year so I'm prepared.

From the "Commenting on Posts" entry on the forum: If the posts are over 10 days old the comment boxes aren't active.

Just wanted to let anyone know that before this change, the boxes were open for comment indefinitely. So now if someone doesn't post for more than 10 days from their latest post, this means you can't leave them a comment or "shoutout." For some of us, that shoutout is a lifeline of sorts. A chance to say--C'mon back--we'd love to see you post an update. So if you don't get the comment on a diary within 10 days of the diarist's last post, there's no way to let them know you visited their diary. Just a little heads-up in case you missed it:-)

Big thumbs down as far as I'm concerned.

grannyannie on 01/30/2013:
Thanks. I am healing. A boda (motorbike taxi) drive drove up on the sidewalk to try to snatch my handbag off my shoulder. I would not let go so he had to. In the process I tumbled around a few times.


Umpqua on 01/31/2013:
Great quote :) Good for you for getting up at the crack of dawn, I'm sure the cold will be motivating for a brisk walk. Your sleep looks awesome and so consistent!
