I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.

I had my yearly physical today. First off, I got kudos from the staff for the weight loss so far. That was some nice encouragement. Doc said my heart sounded great. Blood pressure: 128 over 80. Not to shabby, eh? The good doctor scheduled me for some xrays and such for my knee and thumbs. Hopefully I'm not getting arthritis. I've got a lot of drumming and drawing to do yet.

What can you do about getting older, except fight the aging thing as hard as you can through excercise and eating right - and having as much fun as possible!

I started a self defense class two weeks ago. It's quite a workout. This is the last thing I ever thought I would try to attempt, but look at me go! Ha! Also doing a lot of gardening - mainly consisting of digging holes and pulling weeds - which is also another great way to work out. In fact, after working in the yard for a few hours, you discover muscles that you had no idea existed.

So, I'm still plugging away, eating normal portions and trying to get as physically active as I possibly can. I've got a long way to go, but I've come a long way.
