I fell over the 70 mark last year LOL I have been going to a Barre3 studio for almost a year now and love it. It's a combo of Pilates, Barre and Ballet - lots of stretching and balancing. If I don't go these old bones get pretty creaky especially in the morning, sometimes I need a block and pulley to get me out of bed. I find these types of exercises fun and help me with my balance.

Yes, I'm over 70! I'm still working on getting fit and developing a healthy lifestyle. Actually, I used to exercise or walk daily. Somewhere in the last few years, I had let that go....at least I gained a bunch of weight. I'm hoping to lose a considerable amount this year (50 lbs.). emoticon


Love the Lord your God, with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

I haven't been to a movie since I can't remember when. It has been a very long time. I find that I can get what I need off my TV now because it is hard for me to sit that long without getting up and walking around. Well, hope you guys all have a good day.

I went to the Movies today. It was a new movie theater for me, and the chairs were just like Lazy-Boys. Comfy. Anyway, the movie was "La La Land". Gave my friend and me lots to talk about afterward.

Since I have been in the hospital 3 times in the last year I decided it was time to start getting things in order. I have a will in place and have started bringing the kids up to date on what my wishes are and things they will need to do. Not pleasant but necessary. Hope you all have a good day.

Next Sunday would be our 28th Anniversary if my husband had lived another 5 months. I plan to mark the day by getting all 5 of my kids together (one by phone and one by Skype and 3 others in person) and discuss what I've learned after his death to help them when I pass. Also, some ideas for the future like home sharing, etc. I've been working on this all along, and now it's time to talk to them and then I can relax and feel good about preparing all this.

TGIF everyone,

Have Weight Watchers at noon and then while out will run those pesky errands that are necessary.

No rain at the moment, but all this rain has finally stopped our 6 yr. drought.

I walked for 24 minutes yesterday and that is very good for me at this time. Today I will do 30 minutes. I hope to really get some things done in the house today. Yesterday I was not able to do much of anything other than the walking. Hope you guys have a very healthy day.

Sounds like a good class. I have several DVD's by Sit and Be Fit for chair exercises with stretches and such. They are very good. I guess I should get them out again and start using them

I got 2 loads of laundry done yesterday and did a few things around the house. It snowed a little yesterday and is snowing again this morning. It sounds like it will snow again overnight tonight,. Then it will get cold. I will be walking this morning in the house and I have one more load of laundry to do. I am not sure what else I will do. Hope you all have a great day.

Good day. Did a video from Spark for my exercise before I left. Then on to my MoveToHealth class, visited with my youngest great-granddaughter, then back to the clinic for a check-up and refills of meds. Now ready to relax into the evening.

Morning team,

Wow, we have rain here in drought Southern CA. Hopefully the reservoirs are filling up, and thankfully I don't need to be on the freeway this morning.

It is supposed to move out by afternoon, at that time I will walk the neighborhood to meet my daily step count.

Have a healthy day
