With a 5k run five weeks away, I need to make a decision whether to participate or not. Am I being "old and foolish"? So this morning I jogged a bit, alternating walking and running every 50 yards or so, 5 miles total. Felt good, but near the end, my hips and groin began to ache. Anyway, I have a week to save $5 entry fee ($20). Doing the race gives me some motivation. Besides, I really do like to run--even at age 73.

I just read that squat exercises are very good for leg strength and balance. I should have been doing them before hiking up and down mountains in Greece last week! I'm adding them to my routine.

Your alternate sugarless days sounds like  doable strategy, Randall. Bravo for taking care of yourself. Of course I'm sugarless every day, being diabetic.

I am repeating last year's "New Year's resolution" and going "sugar free" every other day (usually odd days). No chocolate, cookies, desserts, etc. I lasted 3 months a year ago, then went on a cruise and fell off the wagon. I hope to total 180 sugarless days this year. And on my "sugar-on" days, I'll try not to make up for the previous off day. I've discovered that's hard to do. I've found I over-indulge by rationalization. Wish me luck.

And that is only after you've been alarmed by the stickers. I feel in general food can't really be trusted. Of course consumer organizations would start to protest and talk about their important work - but still. And we have to eat something. I'm rather content with my return to unprocessed simple food.

Low crab diet: Ha! 

I see errors like that quite often and wonder if the food or product can be trusted.

Whoa! Can this be believed?

I ran into this yogurt a few days ago. It's not for people on a low-crab diet, or with allergies to crustacean shellfish:

Everyone should read today's (Nov. 8) Dr. Mercola message on flu vaccines. I'm sure you can "google it".

Nice to hear that positive experiences in the gym are possible, Ruth! But I won't go back!
