I carried an extra 25 lbs for 25 years. In the era of the "Biggest Loser" that may not seem like a big deal. I had always been told by family and friends that I could "carry it." The photo of me finishing a half marathon back in 2006 attests to that. Finally, on Jan 1, 2009 I decided that I just didn't want to "carry it" anymore, not for 13.1 miles, not up and down stairs, nowhere.

Hi and thanks for your comments on my half-marathon blog. Loved it and have signed up for another. The training went surprisingly well. Even though I live fairly close to Xenia, this is the first time I've been there. The rebuilding went well!

Guess you got the upright rows turned off. After you commented that upright rows were a featured exercise next to the article that said they were risky, I went back and looked but couldn't see the feature. The risky exercise that gets me is pulldowns behind the head. My trainer keeps trying to get me to do pulldowns that way, and I always decline, because they hurt. Now at least I know why: limited shoulder flexibility. I can work on making my shoulders more flexible, but not with pulling weight down at an awkward angle. That's just asking for trouble.

I love to dabble in artsy things, but I don't consider myself good enough to call myself an artist. None of these were painted by me, but if you go to my page, I think I have 2 or 3 pieces I've done. Lots of mine were burned up in the fire. Luckily I have the very first one I ever did as it was at our home in Glendale (AZ) it's of a mauve colored sunset with a mountain and pine trees.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! emoticon
