I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    Good timing eh? We didn't get a lot of moisture, but it was fun. Today was cloudy again, but no soft rain. At least the clouds kept it from getting hot. I need to go water our tomato plants.

    Thank you so much for the Spark Goodie to help us celebrate our 40 years of marriage. This is a wonderful day to reflect on all of our memories and glad we are just as much in love today (even more in love) as the day we were married.

    Hi there, yes hubby is enjoying the walking and he goes every other day with me. In the heat it is hard top push him to go as far as yesterday (5 miles) but he did it and I let him know how proud I was of him. I need to work on his speed a bit but I think it will get better when it cools down some.

    Thanks for your message and have a super healthy day.

    OR maybe I share the storm stories too much :-)D It does seem like they come in every other day! Great night here last night. The storms stayed to the north suburbs and a mess as they went into WI. Looks clear until next Tues. or Weds. Who knows!!

    Have a terrific Thurs.!! Oh yes, thanks for the lovely goodie from the other night. Just haven't gotten around to each to say thanks. You would think I was busy or something! LOL
