Which of the following would you wish for?

The power to stop time
Winning the lottery
A traffic-stopping body
The ability to read minds
Landing my dream job

None of the above....At my age I'm thankful for waking up to a brand new day and in such great health.

I can be tempted by a few favorites - such as M&Ms - if they are offered to me. But we don't get any candy here because we're too far from the road for kids to walk.

Good tip for parents: Bribe your kids to give up the candy they got by paying them a few cents per piece. My daughter was happy to get the money. I let her select a limited number of favorites to keep and "bought" the rest.

Sometimes, if my favorites are around. Our family is not giving out treats this year. I was away last year and DH didn't give out candy. So we decided not to buy any this year.

Yes, and it's everywhere!

I'm not much of a sweet eater but if we buy some of the candy that I like ... I will be tempted to eat a bit of it.

How much sleep do you usually get?


10 hours or more
8-9 hours
6-7 hours
4-5 hours
3 hours or less

Most nights I get about 7-8 hours of sleep.........they didn't put that combination in the choices.

When choosing a workout, the ___ is MOST important to me.

fun factor
convenience
effectiveness
location
calories burned
ability to be modified or adapated
level of ease or difficulty
[other]



I would say a little bit of all the above. Location being at home using my own equipment. It's important for me to enjoy what I'm doing but also the ability to see results.
