I watched Jack when I was a young mother and exercised with him, on tv, in black and white. This really dates me, huh? He talked about nutrition when it wasn't popular. He and Debbie. I exercised with Debbie too. She had big boobs and my ex-hus... Read more

I deleted what I had to say on my page. I realized I am doing NONE of that; too much stress in my life right now. I went along and everything was peachy. It should be. I'm 71. Why should I have stress in my life? Because I have a bi-polar daugh... Read more

It is 6:30 in the morning, a light rain is falling, again, but yesterday I trimmed the shrubs and cleaned out one of the flower beds. It was very taxing for me to do that; partly age; partly obesity, but I was able to be outside and I fel... Read more

The hubby and I were going out to breakfast this morning and take care of errands. I looked in the closet and I knew, I just knew, the only pants that would fit were white capris that I had been wearing while we were in Florida. Now girls, we a... Read more

I have read so many wonderful blog entries this week. Some needed encouragement, some deserved woo hoos, some were informative. I don't feel I have done that, but I do feel that just writing it down helps with the frustrations of the day. We... Read more
