What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

I have always been worried about blood clots.  I have coworkers who
 have developed them from excessive sitting, and no one sits more
 than me during the day.  I have the eight hours at work, but then I
add at least four hours daily in the train.  I really needed this article.
This article provides some exercises to help in the prevention of
blood clots.  I particularly appreciate ideas of exercises while at
your desk, and I will be incorporating some of them into my routine.
 This will be along with some exercises I do to keep the circulation
in my arms.  Foot pumps, ankle circles, shoulder rolls and leg raises
 seem pretty easy.  However, it is important to walk as frequently
as possible.
