    Well..... the holidays are always kinda crazy for me but this time I got a really bad flu/cold thing that started out with vomiting and fever. I called it malaria. Didn't eat for over two days... yay!? Then the regular cold symptoms kicked in. All the while I had to work the entire weekend loading d... Read more

  • Myself Today

    12/15/2014 8:12:58 PM, by SEKAMP1

    I was supposed to blog about who has benefited from my life style change besides me, but I have already blogged about that. So instead I will blog about my day. I decided that this was a "walk" day. We went to the mall. Now you have to realize that I hate crowds. I have been known to walk out ... Read more

  • Each Session Gets Better Results

    12/15/2014 7:48:53 PM, by PATRICIAANN46

    Today was my third PT Session for my hip and spine. The PT had given me several exercises to strengthen my core and especially my lower back. I have been doing them religiously at home and can really feel muscles that I had forgotten I had. I have increased the reps each time I do an exercise, so... Read more

    12/15/2014 7:41:20 PM, by SVBJONES062010

    I woke up this morning and got on my scale, I am down to a weight I haven't been at in (literally) ten years. I am officially 19 pounds away from my first goal of 250 pounds. I'm not going to stop there, my final goal is to be between 130 and 150 pounds . We went to the YMCA that is... Read more

    12/15/2014 7:15:12 PM, by DWROBERGE

    We were up early so my wife could get to her exercise class at the senior center this morning. It was a beautiful sunshiny day with temps in the sixties. We did get to pick up some goodies at the store. Exercises are going well. Weight is steady. Calories remain below 1300. Trivia is at 96%. ... Read more

  • A Touching Christmas Story

    12/15/2014 4:35:51 PM, by LIVINGLOVINLIFE

    I hurried into the local department store to grab some last minute Christmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled to myself. I would be in here forever and I just had too much to do. Christmas was becoming such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep through Christmas. But I hurried... Read more

    I love the words penned by the English poet Christina Rossetti: What can I give Him, Poor as I am? If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb. If I were a Wise Man I would do my part, Yet what can I give Him? Give my heart. https://www.lds.org/broadcas

  • Making Monday Matter

    12/15/2014 9:22:24 AM, by UNIQUESON

    The beginning of the work week used to be a time for me to drag myself into work feeling tired despite just having spent a weekend sitting around, for the most part. No more: now Mondays will include two "walk breaks" of 15 minutes each where I will walk the halls at a brisk pace to knock off s... Read more

    12/15/2014 7:44:01 AM, by GOLDENRODFARM

    Of course no day is totally a non-farm day! Chores need to be done, and this time of year they take longer. I put Apache out early and went and got breakfast so she could run off some energy, I don't like putting her out with the sheep and cows because her running around drives them nuts. I broug...

    Yesterdays mileage was 5.12, just barely got that much, seems like housework and cooking doesn't generate as much mileage as farm work! So we can finish with the muddy track and progress to Crossing the Last Bridge, it is nearly dark and guess what, we are going to have to came on the bridge, sinc... Read more

    The weather report said "nice day". Monadnock did not agree. Sometimes mountains have their own micro weather patterns. Our hike was shrouded in a deep dark cloud, and the trail was covered in rime ice. The bottom did not look bad at all. Read more

It is in the same building as City Hall and the opera house is on the third floor. You rarely get a poor seat because there are 2 balconies and the in... Read more

    There's no place like home. Boy I thought as we got older, life would slow down. Today, after we left my KofC meeting, I went with Margaret and her Clown Club to Cuba KofC, where they had a Christmas Lunch with Santa. There were over 300 underpriviledged children there. I don't clown, but I hel... Read more
