Try this little "trick" this week . . . the “1 Times 10 Trick”

Find 10 opportunities during the day to raise your heart rate for just 1 minute at a time. You can do anything for only 1 minute, right? You’ll burn as many as 300-400 extra calories a day by doing this little trick alone!!! emoticon emoticon

We loved seeing our granddaughter, and the whole 2 weeks of visiting friends and family went very well. We saw my dad and had a nice visit, and he passed away one week later. I'm so glad we had that nice visit.

We plan to go back in July to see our granddaughter again, and they are planning to come to our house in September. emoticon

Thanks Vicki, I always look forward to your comments. It's been a week now and I have some moments of panic, but mostly I feel that this uprooting, no matter how painful, needs to be done. And if I don't do it now, I really can't see myself marshalling the energy at 70.

Speaking of energy, you better start getting some sleep! We're not 40 any more!

Actually, spending a whole lot of time with daughter. I've been living in her apartment for a week! She's moving and I'm taking over the lease on this one for five months. It's a long story but I'm leaving my husband, there's been a lot of issues and I've wanted to do this for a long time. Seems a little crazy at my age, I know. I'll explain more in a blog soon.
