Hi, Everyone. You may be wondering what happened this week. I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth nor have I decided to play hookey from blog posts. Instead, I’ve had to slow down to get well. For the past two months, the weather and seasonal changes made my fibro and MCVD worse. I’ve...Read Full Post »

Recently, I felt pummeled by troubles ranging from a damaged computer to pressures of trying to finish our house and move while trying to start groups and classes, to one huge flare-up that landed me in bed for a few days. You likely noticed my posts were sporadic at the end of my visit with my daughter in Colorado until recently. It seemed like I was spi...Read Full Post »

I've been sick all week after returning from visiting my daughter and her family in Colorado. The altitude difference, 432 feet above sea level in Michigan to over 4,000 feet above sea level in Northern Colorado, got me. It made me feel like I was doing mild endurance exercise while I was there. This ...Read Full Post »

Sitting hunched over a computer is the norm nowadays. Leaning toward a coworker over the table in a meeting to hear him while showing interest is also common. Pastors, teachers, and childcare workers are reaping the negative results of working in a leaning forward position day in and day out. The results of ...Read Full Post »

The past few days challenged me here at Be Totally Fit for Life! All was not well here. First, I noticed the hinge on my laptop caused a separation of the screen from the case, thereby cracking the bottom corner of the screen at the Windows logo. It finished fully cracking off the rest by the time I could take it to an approved repai...Read Full Post »

Cooler Fall temperatures make us hungry for warm comfort foods. I've loved spaghetti squash for a long time, but recently rediscovered it's delicious swap for pasta. Spaghetti squash gets its name for the stringy texture of the flesh. Why bother spiralizing stuff when God set this up for us already? The stores around me had it on sale tempting me to buy one,...Read Full Post »

My hubby and I took a great bike ride along the Saginaw Bay through Bay City. At first, we thought it was a new trail discovery, but it was actually the extension of one we tried out a couple of years ago. Most of the summer, we rode between 10-12 miles near our home to the nearby town. Neither one of us expected to cycle twice a...Read Full Post »

I've heard parents and teachers exclaim, "School starts next week. Can you believe it?" Frantically they shop for kids' clothes and school supplies. All those forms will come home to be filled out and returned to teachers. Football practice and cheerleading tryouts place many parents' backsides in the seats of bleachers waiting… waiti...Read Full Post »
