And what does it mean, BLOG? Is it an acronym? Well, anyway... While I appreciate the Richard Simmons' workouts, and the oldies can be fun, I DON'T like having "Upside Down" and "Maniac" stuck in my head...so one night I sat and jotted down ... Read more

Abi lives with me (along with her 2 younglings, my grandkids) and it's she who got me into SP. She's been the greatest buddy, keeping me from trying calorie rich samples while we shop and saying no to things when I couldn't...and at the same tim... Read more
