Today I had my yearly physical and it went fairly well. The only interesting part is that my doctor wants me to lose 15 to 20 lb! I feel like I’m in decent shape but evidently I have things to improve in my body, like everyone else. Ugh. I lost 45 lbs on Weight Watchers a couple of decades ago, and kept it off, and it’s a painful long process! My wife is having some issues also and we’ve decided to start and embrace the Mediterranean diet. Could be interesting!
My doctor was almost an hour late but he gave me plenty of time to discuss all the issues. Unfortunately, this, along with taking time for blood tests, removed the possibility to travel far for a hike. This is still a very nice hike and it’s a beautiful cloudy day. Of course, it drizzled at the end of this hike but that’s perfectly okay.
I had a very long talk with a woman named Connie(?), on the trail. She lives in the area and walks down here on a regular basis. Sounds like a nice location for a daily hiking experience. 🙂
I hiked a loop around part of the Greenway. What I noticed most was all the flowers that were blooming! My photographs reflect what I found interesting today.
