Why talking on a cell phone in a car isn't safe!
Tuesday, March 15, 2011      4 comments

I found out today, I can't even use the cell phone sitting still in my driveway! I was sitting in the car, motor running, foot on the brake, calling my husband because I won't use the phone when I drive. I was looking at the phone. All of... Read more
TRX Arrived!
Monday, March 14, 2011      1 comments

I ordered a TRX, and it came today! I can't wait to use it. I tried it at the gym in a demo class. It was awesome, but to use it there you have to pay a personal trainer. So I decided to buy one for home instead. I'm going to watch th... Read more
Spring Forward!
Sunday, March 13, 2011      2 comments

I really don't like spring forward day. Even though it is Sunday, so I don't have to get up and go to work, I still hate sleeping in an extra hour. I am an active person, and then the day seems way too short to accomplish everything I wanted t... Read more
Feeling Old--Ramblings of an old fart!
Monday, March 07, 2011      6 comments

Recently on the facebook page for my high school class, someone wrote, "Do you feel you age?" I answered, "Because I refuse to act my age, I sometimes feel my age!" Before I start complaining, let me say that at 50 I decided to get in shap... Read more

Today as I was leaving the check out lane at the grocery store, an employee walked up to me and handed me a bouquet of flowers! I said, "Those aren't mine," thinking she thought I had left them when I was checking out. She replied, "I am... Read more

I don't usually watch daytime TV. However, yesterday, I actually sat down and watched Dr. Oz and wrote down the things we should do to cut our risk of heart disease, cancer, brain issues, etc. I eat pretty healthy and get the 5 colors of f... Read more
Getting Ready for Vacation!
Thursday, January 27, 2011      3 comments

Down the final things--hair done, packing done, still have to take the dogs to the kennel tomorrow. I think the time off from the gym will probably be good for my body. (I am sure I will do some working out; I always do!) I am going to m... Read more
Compliment? I guess?
Wednesday, January 26, 2011      11 comments

The last couple days I have gotten some compliments (kind of). I was teaching a rather challenging move in a class at the pole studio. A 20 something student who was having trouble said to me, "Just how old are you, anyway!" I think i... Read more
New year under way!
Thursday, January 06, 2011      2 comments

No new year resolutions! As someone at the gym said, "We are already doing what we need to do! No real need to change!" However, I am happy to be back to normal after the holidays and company. No more days off from the gym, and back to the ... Read more
