OK...I'm in. On the smiley one...do we need to say who we gave them to? Do you want us to say up front which ones we'll do or just list them as we do them? This one sounds fun...full of variety!

Not at all Jean - a lot of people have trouble with the tracker!!
If you go to chairexercisefun.com/ - on the right hand side of the fromt page are some buttons - click on "Booklets" button
When that opens you will see a heading "trackers"
You can read, download to your computer or print that out
I hope that might help!!

I can do it all except for the nutrition tracker. That's where I hit a snag ~ somehow we don't seem to always eat like other people. I do all fresh veggies & fruit ~ with fish, chicken, pork & beef but get confused with the nutrition tracker. I guess I'm a flop. BUT, I will give it my best.
