By the Numbers

Movement for last week: I had a yellow day: my usual Wii Fit plus a nice long walk along the walking trail, though it clearly wasn’t as long as it should have been. I averaged just over 5,000 steps per […]

Jump!

I’m feeling jumpy this evening. I think it’s lack of sleep, and man is that boring. What have I complained about most in this blog over the years? I think lack of sleep is the clear winner. I was talking […]
