Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (38 operations and counting) have kept me on a weight loss roller coaster my entire adult life. I have five artificial joints, but love to work out, the higher intensity the better. I have three forms of arthritis destroying my body, but fight to keep moving every body part they damage. That is all that stands between me and a wheelchair. My favorite fitness classes are Boxercise, Step & Zumba! My trusty elliptical keeps me moving on the days I can't get out. Winters are long and hard here and even more challenging to keep moving.
I can only type with one finger so request you do not add me as friend as its all I can do to keep up with the great friends I already have!! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

The nursery for Gwen and Y Pals for Natalie are only open 8am-noon Monday- Friday, sometimes after 4pm, some Saturday mornings, but never on Sunday. So, yes, I take Gwen often on weekday mornings. Thanks for your comment on my status. -Marsha

emoticon Thanks for the goodie and advice. I found a beginner meditation site and will try it. I know it will help I just have to do it. The site offers meditation exercises beginning with 1 minute sessions, gradually increasing in duration. This is the site that I found: http://www.fragrantheart.com/cms/free-audi

I still have other tests, one Tuesday to test to see if I have an abdominal aortic aneurysm... Both my grand mother and my mom had one. I will keep you posted.

Well, enjoy your weekend and thanks for your support I really appreciate it.

Glad to hear that you are so well-informed about using the weighted gloves. You do so much with a body that has been through so much, I guess I have been like a mother hen, worrying that you might run into overuse injuries and such. Guess I don't need to. You are truly an inspiration to me, that doesn't change.

Linda - Thanks as always for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. Your continued support helps me continue on. I didn't even come close to meeting all my goals this round, but I am making progress and mybe that's even better.

The team is totally awesome! If you are looking for a challenge that you can modify to meet your own needs this is a good one. Although I say that about all of my teams because they are all flexible enough that I can participate and contribute to the team goals.
