Today my employer had a blood drive, which is customary every 2 months or so. I always try to donate. Most of the time I am able to do just that. For a while my iron level would be too low, and I couldn't. Since that happened like 2 or 3 times i... Read more

I ordered a Fit Bit from Amazon yesterday. I am looking forward to getting it. I have been doing a lot of comparisons between it and the body media products. For sure the price is better---since there is no online fee every month. Most of the re... Read more

One of my favorite things to do is read, but since I have become more active, I am not able to read as much. I like to go to a website called goodreads. They have thousands of free giveaways each month. I also like to keep up with the books I ha... Read more

Well, it has been 2 days in a row that I have gained weight. Each day has been .8 pounds. At this rate, in a few more days, I will be back to where I started. It has only been a month, and I thought I was doing pretty good. Sure, I may not eat a... Read more
