This afternoon after spin class, four of the class members ... Read more
Outside My Comfort Zone
If you read my previous blog, "The Prize", you know about the rec. center holding a contest for membership prizes. You also read about my discomfort about the water requirements for the month of June. You also know that I'm NOT a swimmer.

That's Not Good......
As I was working in the yard/garden/pasture the other day, I came inside to have a quick bite of lunch before heading outside again. I had set some brush on fire next to the irrigation ditch and went into the dining room to look out the windows ... Read more
It's almost spring here! Yippie skippie hooray!

Does anyone else find it incredibly irritating to go car shopping? I mean really, where else do you go to purchase something and you have to spend hours, ugh, hours dickering back and forth for an item.

My thighs no longer rub together when I walk. I know that's a crazy thing to not... Read more
Since I write often of the amazing views from the Rec. Center windows, I thought I'd take this opportunity to share some of the beauty I get to enjoy while working out. I do need to tell you though, these were taken as I walked around the park n... Read more
3. 2. 1.....Meltdown
Saturday was rough, really rough. I totally lost it. Really lost it.
I've been having problems with my thyroid since the beginning of the year. My doctor has sent me for blood work and changed my medication four times. The last time was ju... Read more

I belong to a cool community recreation center that in the cardio room are large, oversize windows on the north and west side of the building. There are four T.V.'s mounted betwee... Read more
