My Itty Bitty Little Routine
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      8 comments

SIMPLEMAW asked me weeks ago about what things I did in my "Itty Bitty Little Routine" - a mostly isometric series that I do at my desk - and I meant to write it down right away, but, well, life happens. These are not particularly difficult, esp... Read more

Theme: Write a blog about why it’s important for you to get healthy NOW and not push it off. This is part of a team challenge, and, oddly enough, not something I think about all that much! I have been blessed with good health and a strong c... Read more

About Hope
Friday, March 16, 2012      5 comments
