Another Prayer Request
At this point, my mom is having surgery, so I'd appreciate it if anyone who reads this could say a prayer for a successful surgery and a great recovery. Thank you.
My plan was to blog every day, but that's unrealistic. Then, when I missed the first day this month, I almost gave up. My problem is I fall into that, "Well, it's not perfect, so I might at well stop." Not this time. So I didn't blog for a f... Read more

My Weekend Walk
I went for a walk on the I & M Canal trail in Illinois over the weekend. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while. I've always put it off for fear of it being too long. I can push myself on the treadmill, but I can always get off wh... Read more
One Class Period of Exercise
I've been on the ten minutes a day exercise routine for a while now, and the scale has not be a friend lately. I'm a teacher, and I decided to look at my exercise in a different way. If I can teach six periods a day, I can add one more "class ... Read more
