OK so I've been working out really hard and the scale hasn't budged but I put on a pair of pants that I wore just about a week ago and suddenly they are loose! Cool! I guess with the weight training 4-5 times a week I'm building enough muscle th... Read more

I'm dragging today at work. To perk myself up I decided to print out my fitness trackers for the past few weeks. Skipping of course the days when my family was in town since I was busy entertaining them. Last week I did double my number of goal... Read more

Tried a Zumba class last night. The music and dancing are fun but I hate that I have to be in room with mirrors on all the walls- it's just too much information looking back at me! Boy do I have a gut! Oh well, I faced reality and it makes me m... Read more

I can't believe my back won't cooperate with me after 47 years of abuse! Every year about this time I begin "The Cleaning Frenzy" as my family calls it and have to clean and organize everything. I tackled the hideous laundry room this time and i... Read more
