taking care of me

At DeSoto memorial National park, the walking is good . . . . 
I'm heading back to NW Bradenton today for an appointment and have decided to walk at DeSoto Memorial National Park afterwards. If I don't go to Nia class, I will walk a few miles to keep the calories burning and my metabolism good. In about 3 weeks I've lost 4 pounds, which is good! Being brave, I added the widget for the fitness app I am using to the sidebar, here on my blog. It will sync with the check-ins I do for my weight on the site. I've been eating a lot less than before - 1200 calories and rarely drinking wine. But it is really going okay. There are conflicting reports about drinking wine or not with fatty liver disease, so I am mostly avoiding wine. I used to enjoy a couple of glasses each evening. My disease is not alcohol related, but the inflammation can be aggravated by it. Not having any saves a lot of calories too!


I do walk around the neighborhood, but DeSoto park is beautiful.


I love that part of the walk goes along the shore. I am fascinated with it. 
But the woodland paths are interesting too . . .

look who I found last time! 


I wonder what I will find there today? 



There is no wilderness like a life without friends; friendship multiplies blessings and minimizes misfortunes; it is a unique remedy against adversity, and it soothes the soul.

  1. Beautiful photographs, Lenna, specially the last one which looks like being in an enchanted forest. I love walking, and think it's a great form of exercise which also allows for lots of thinking time. I'll be encouraging you from the sidelines here in Scotland! Hugs xox

  3. I posoitively LOVE the quote for today Lenna! Your photos are beautiful.It's such wonderful inspiration to walk when you have these lovely places to wander in, and especially the warm air. I hate that I can't walk outdoors in the winter, and it's just not the same using a stepper or stationary bike in the house. Keep up the good work!
