I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 66 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY YEARS this week!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Ohhhh....Plantar Fasciitis.
    Been there done that at least three times and I hope I don't repeat it either.
    It is so painful and I feel for you.
    Hope you get over it real soon.

    Hi...Thanks for stopping by my recent BLOG.
    Yes, I do weight train.
    MWF - I work on my Legs and Tu/Thu I do upper body all on equipment.
    All days I have at least 30 min of cardio on bike or treadmill.
    Then I also do sit-ups and other mat workout.

    I just have to get focused on eating better and in smaller portions.
    I found my old meal tracking sheet and started using it again.
    It will help me keep disciplined.

    This morning I woke up with a hungry feeling...so I guess I did ok with my eating yesterday. I plan to get a new scale and will be weighing in next Wednesday. I hope (and better) see some good results.

    Wow, that's fabulous! I will remember to do that when I get over-priced prescriptions.

    People have actually seen it. It is completely visible. BTW, did you ever get your eye drops?
