Finally Feeling Successful

Sunday, March 27, 2011      6 comments

I must say that being on these challenges has really worked for me as far as exercise is concerned. I used to be content with 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. Now I really strive for 90 - 120 most days of the week. And my weight is finally ge... Read more

Retired, but always busy! It is nearly 11 PM and I still need to complete SP. We just returned from the Club House where our many residents put together a Variety Show which lasted 3 hours and was a blast. We laughed until we cried. Don't ev... Read more
