I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    That's what I always do. Tonight is at a steak house and I bring home half each visit. Tomorrow is at a private home. Hoping it's much easier. Last night was at a buffet and I actually under ate with a piece of cake and some icy cold ice cream!!

    The new farm sounds divine. We do have a Farmers Market in the next town over. Also one in Little Rock. We need to drop by their stands. Maybe their Strawberries are safer. I will ask.

    From what I read, organic strawberries isn't much better here.

    Deena--I wouldn't send them to you, I like you. Nah I kicked them to the curb. I was going to flush them down the toilet but my landlord told me only toilet paper and human waste. I was flushing Pampers wipes. emoticon Well, maybe it did get flushed. Anyway, I know they are gone.

    Funny, my favorite ice cream is on sale this week and my first thought was Good now I can go buy the ice cream. emoticon
