The man in the photo was my husband for 40 years who passed away at age 63 on March 7 of this year. This image is from 2015 when we took a walk in a local park. My husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in May of 2012 and the following year was told he had PAD which is the abbreviation for Peripheral Artery Disease. He did his best to stick to a healthier diet and increase walking and exercise. He eventually also quit smoking and monitored his blood sugar closely but now 9 years later he is gone. PAD is progressive but it's possible to slow it down and perhaps even reverse it.

One year ago this week, I was laid off and introduced to the quar. Like many other people, I took this as an opportunity to better myself. Or at least told myself I was going to better myself because, let’s be real, I’ve spent the better part of the past year horizontal with my dog on one side and a bag of sweet chili Doritos on the other.

In some small ways, though, these influenced purchases were helpful and did help me become a better version of me who now doesn’t judge myself for eating a Little Debbie brownie for breakfast. Let’s get into it!
