Keeping it consistent

I'm trying to get into a habit of posting here more often. We'll see if that happens. :) In the meantime, things are moving along.

I generally get a spoon back after a workout, though I have to lose one just walking to the gym (1/4 mile). By the time this is over, I'm racking my brain trying to recall what I'm supposed to work on that day. I keep lists, but details get lost in my head. I've been taking ginkgo biloba and that has been helping. Some of the fog is lift…
