Welcome back. I wish you much success in meeting all your goals. I too am a couch potato. I like HGTV, crime dramas, TLC. I have started going to the gym and doing some exercising at home. It is hard for me to keep motivated. Any little thing will throw me off track.
Sorry about your losing your parents. I lost my dad several years ago and I know how hard it can be. I'll keep you in my prayers.
