I took my first AquaFit class at GoodLife tonight. I haven't taken an AquaFit class in about 10 years. I was happy to see that I wasn't the youngest person in the class. I was a little nervous that the whole class would be senior citizens, but ... Read more

Hubby (EMGORGON) and I signed up with Goodlife Fitness the other day. We're going tomorrow for the first time. We both bought new shoes last night, so I'm hoping my hip pain goes away when I'm walking. A few people have asked about the Sp... Read more

Back to work today... It wasn't too bad, only 72 emails over the days off. I guess it helped that my HQ in Switzerland was off on Monday too. My boss seemed in a cranky mood, but he wasn't in the office, so it wasn't too bad. Went for my w... Read more
