Time to update. Well, I've managed to gain weight in the past year, instead of lose it. Time to kick it in gear and do something about this menopausal middle. I'm 55, mom to two adults and two dogs. Nana to two grandchildren and 2 granddogs...one of which I get custody of every now and again for a large part of the year. His momma misses him so much when she has to leave. I've been married for 36 years. Been a nurse for 20 years. Amazing how time flies.

N-ever give up
I- am worth it
N-ever make excuses
J-ust do it
A-ttitude is everything

Haha! We'd be bike riding all these country roads too! Was....hear that? Was doing dailies (circuits) with 2 off but triggered my long forgotten heel spur and am on constant pain...darn it!! So running is no longer. Am constantly rolling the muscles which helps. Am forced to go buy shoes that should have been bought 6mos ago!

Funny how taxing muscles reminds us, huh? Brings new meaning to"hurts so good" lol!!

Your garden plans sound lovely I want pics whether FB or here. If it quits raining long enough here I can finish our flower garden & put in our veggie garden.

Take care thanks for surfacing been missing you!
