I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 64 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (47 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins
(another one on the way!).
I have a beautiful second home/
www.jasminevilla.com
I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Very well (veggies). Got into smoothies a couple of years ago. I consume a lot of greens. I eat more spinach/kale in an average week than most americans do in a year.

    I appreciate your friendship (as always)!!

    Thank you!

    Our closest Gym is 30 miles away and while that doesn't sound like much, it would be more than is handy for Ray. Pity, they charge $10 month, I believe.

    So, our PT Clinic allows patients to come 2X week at $5 per visit but it is supervised so I won't need to worry about Ray hurting himself. Also, they will continue trying to help him improve. $10 per week doesn't sound like much but it will add up. Thankfully, they have been allowing me to use the machines for free as I go in with him and assist where needed.

    Yes, I did it before and I can do it again! Maybe not as low this time, but I would like to not be overweight again.

    Huggers and Happy New Year again,
    Linda
