  • Hooray! A Running Buddy!

    2/19/2015 10:34:42 PM, by FLUFFYWONKENOBE

    Since I started running last fall, I've been asking my husband if he wouldn't start running with me ... to no avail. His excuse - he had to run 3x/wk for 28 years while he was active duty in the Air Force, and he's retired now, he doesn't want to run anymore. And I could understand that. ... Read more

  • Emergen-C & Yogurt Guilt-free Healthy Treat

    2/15/2015 7:21:10 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I don't know if there's anything "unhealthy" with the Emergen-C (1000mg C) packets but I've been using them for years and really like 'em. Lately, rather than dissolving a packet in a whole glass of water and drinking it, I've been stirring a packet in about 1/4 cup of water then mixing i... Read more

  • Where did January go?

    2/8/2015 10:40:27 AM, by TPHILLIPS69

    I feel like the year is whizzing by already. It's hard to fit anything in when I only have an hour in the morning to myself and maybe 2 hours at night - and that "anything" includes not just workouts but reading/cleaning/organizing stuff in the house, maintaining vehicles, clothes, you name it! I c... Read more

But I know that it could be up tomorrow . . . depending on salt intake/water retention, and a host of other things. The one thing that really makes ... Read more

  • First physical therapy on my foot
