Looking for a Positive New Year

I'm praying all my medical issues showed themselves in 2014 and I'm done with them.
I'm more aware of how to do better with my diet and this will be the year I will
start to get myself to be the more active person I used to be just a short 18 months ago!

With arthritis (like everyone my age) and my back problems I guess 
I will just have to play through the pain!

I'm starting the new Year by joining "Silver Sneakers".

Here in Medina we have a wonderful Rec. Center that I have never taken advantage of.
Well, with a "Silver Sneakers" membership, all the senior activities are free.
(That's always good!)
So today, the last day of 2014 I went to the Center to look around and I signed up for my membership.  I also met two really nice ladies already.
That's a great part of this . . . socializing with people my own age.

There are so many activities for seniors.
Exercise classes, use of the pools, indoor track, exercise equipment and a senior walking club, senior yoga classes, senior lectures twice a month about all kinds of things and lunches. There's even ping pong and something called pickleball?

*So that is my plan for this new year to help me become more active and have more strength so I can get back on my horses and actually ride!!

What are your plans for the New Year?

Whatever they are, have a Healthy New Year.

A Hole In My Head!

Yes, it's official.  I have a hole in my head.
After removing the margins of the "thing" I had on my scalp, this is what I'm left with!
Stitches come out in 10 days.
Who knows how long before my hair grows back!
Well, it's winter.  I can wear a hat most of the time.

I'm not really a hat person.


Better with some hair showing I guess?

Oh Well . . .
