Last August Day!

Hello blog world!
Already the last day of August. We are having wonderful early fall  weather:  mild and sunny days with a little bit of wind.  The summer  was a little bit different for me because I’ve been a bit off of my exercise regime because of  dejuvarex tenosintovitis: a  musical name for a sort of tendinitis that I have in my wrist.  That has made it a little difficult for me to keep up with my cycling and upper body strength conditioning.  A few times I rode my indoor bike when I felt my wrist needed the rest. I now am sporting a purple cast  to help stabilize the wrist and immobilize it somewhat.  I have not been able to do many miles of hiking and walking but except for the hiking walking does not get my heart rate up as high as when I am cycling. I remain reasonably fit but I’m still not getting thee cardiovascular aspect of it all.

I do plan to be a bit more active on this blog this year as I am on sabbatical. I am hoping to continue to work on that 20 to 25 pounds that I believe will really help ease my asthma and help me to continue my road to being fit and strong.

In the meantime, enjoy a few pictures of my summer.  Hope all is well with all of you in the blogging world. Michele


  1. You look great, Michelle, and so good to see your post. One of these days, I'll get back into it. Can't believe how much those grandkids have grown since I started reading your blog. Congrats on the sabbatical! You've certainly earned it.

  2. Yuck to the wrist!!! Take care of it and keep moving as much as possible!!!! Looking good!!!
