I am updating my page as we moved from upstate NY to Tucson AZ. I am still unpacking and have yet to start back up finding a fitness center or exploring the facilities were we are renting. I will miss my team mates and friends in NYState. The information that follows was where I was and the wonderful support group that I left. I am competing as a team member with a great group of women. Our program is called Dare to Lose! There are some similarities to the biggest loser. We meet twice a week for 1 1/2 hours with our trainers, have challenges and weigh ins and are responsible for watching our food intake and exercising at least 2 more times a week. Each session is 8 weeks long so there is a mix of newcomers and those who have participated in earlier sessions. There is a lot of positive support from both the participants, trainers and other fitness center members. We are working hard at getting fit and losing weight.

    Hey by the way -- I think those yellow flowers in bloom right now with the silvery-gray bushy leaves are called brittle brush. They are all over the place near my house -- which I just love this time of year while they are in bloom, but otherwise they look kindof like weeds. lol.

    Hi! That nursery I went to is called Green Things on River rd just west of Alvernon -- wow, it was spectacularly huge. I think its 13 acres and over 3000 different types of plants there. I thought the prices were reasonable for the things I was looking at. I don't know what the name of the flowers you are talking about, but I bet the people there would -- they were very knowledgeable on the plants I asked about. I haven't been to the nursery you mentioned, so I don't have much to judge it by, but I had a lot of fun wandering around, and they do classes on Saturdays. Fun stuff!

    You are so lucky, no time change. You know this morning I was wondering how your hubby was doing, and was going to ask, now I don't have to. Hope everything is moving along with the house, and I hope you send pictures. Another thing I was thinking about, is have you found a gym that has a view anywhere close to the men's rowing team. lol Just wondering.

    I am feeling more lively today. It's mostly stress and I expect things to remain the same fie a few more weeks. It's a fight to stay " normal " if there is such a thing.

    Honey I am so sorry to hear about your husband.
    I will be praying for him and for you too. I gained
    all my weight back too as I am sure you know.
    Its harder when you have to do it all again.
    We can do this. Try and not let this move
    overwhelm you. Can you ask for help packing.
    Love and hugs!!!!!
