Hi Spark friends! Hopefully I'll have my regular computer back in a couple weeks and be back online. Not good when one gets knocked off one's routine, eh? Gotta get back on that horse! LOL. I'm doing pretty well. Been busy; maintaining. Kind of ... Read more
Reading my copy of Martina Navratilova's book, "SHAPE YOUR LIFE".
Right now I'm on a computer, but gotta leave shortly. Then I'll be stuck trying to do LIMITED updates from my cellphone. So that's why you aren't hearing much from me, until... Read more
So glad I carried an inexpensive strength-training exercise tube in my suitcase! For the 5.5 days I was on the road, I think I did pretty well with nutrition, and not too bad with exercise, either. Trips that are "short" (yet more than 1 or 2 d... Read more

Same goes for both Mari Winsor & Malibu pilates, and pr... Read more
