So I was so worried about how I would be able to exercise and get my 10K steps in each day as my sister was bringing my almost 90 year old mother to stay with me for 4 days. She lives 4 hours away and has a 24/7 in home care helper that stays wi... Read more

I ran a 5K this morning! I placed 3rd in the 60+ age group. The two ladies who were ahead of me were 60 & 64 years old respectively - which makes me feel good because I will be 70 years old in 28 days! I really wanted to prove to myself that ... Read more

Doing this is rather scary for me! I will turn 70 next month and am dreading it. I'm not sure why - as I am fortunate to be healthy! I have a wonderful husband, 4 children, 7 grandchildren! I love spending time with them and am trying to sta... Read more

I always seem to do much better during the week - and then on week-ends, I seems to allow myself to make more unhealthy choices....probably because we eat out more on the week-ends and portion control is harder. Also, I like to have mly wine wh... Read more

Friday, February 03, 2017      0 comments

Hard to decide why I want to lose weight. Doesn't seem like I have a big overall reason other than I don't want to weigh as much as I do. I want my clothes to fit like they used to and not be too tight. I want to look thinner. I don't want to... Read more
