Health Update

Eating plan still going well although I fear that keeping off of refined sugar is driving me to eat more fruit per day than I might ordinarily do. The only reason I'm letting myself get away with that is that it's SUMMER. My garden has fruit I've waited all year for.

Exercise not going quite as well. I racked up some higher step days recently but today I didn't even set foot outside. I was up 'til 8am and am now right back in the clutches of that really awful insomnia that makes me feel otherworldly. And not in a good way.

I tried to keep my spirits up by joining the millions who hit YouTube to view "The Last Lecture" today. I had never heard of Randy Pausch before I heard of his death today. But his lecture is justly famous.

Another person with a terminal illness who is well worth reading is Carla Zilbersmith. I read the SF Chron article about her and I've been reading her blog ever since. Would that I had the optimism, wit and drive these folks have/had.
