I have been exercising at the place that I used to have physical therapy for about 2 years now. I've changed my routines a bit over the years but I felt that I needed something different. My weight has stablized for way too long and I need to ... Read more
I have finally gotten back into my exercise routine after a bout with shingles. It was primarily around my waist and back and rubbing clothing wasn't comfortable. Now I'm working on the 5K program and back to strength training..

I don't have a problem with winter, I really don't. I usually enjoy shoveling and I like to walk around the block when it is snowing and peaceful. I even like sitting on the back deck, all bundled up, to watch the flakes fall. But this winter... Read more

This time, I am not blogging about me, but about my good friend. I was away for a few days visiting family, and when I returned, I had a phone message to call her. I was worried over the week that perhaps her father, who had been in the hospit... Read more
The last few days, I have been in a class all day, sitting, sitting, sitting. I'm used to being active and I spend at least an hour at the gym in the morning. The instructor has been good about giving breaks, but I found myself gravitating tow... Read more
