We finally made it back up to the little cabin in the mountains and hope to be here through mid-October. We left Florida with morning temperatures averaging in the mid 70's and highs in the 90's. This morning we are a beautiful, crisp 54 degre... Read more

RB has been taking apart and reconstructing our entertainment unit in order to fit a bigger flat screen TV. He is doing an awesome job but it has made us realize how much "stuff" we have that we don't need. I am an avid reader and have bee... Read more

Today I was pretty sure I could not meet my goal of over 18,000 steps but it is OK. It was my day to work the church thrift shop and all three of us got more than our share of exercise today. We moved shelves, cleaned, vacuumed, dusted, re-sto... Read more

Yesterday I met my goal of a minimum of 18,000 steps with a total of 19,753! Today I'm still aiming for at least 18,000 - anything extra is gravy! My mantra for the day is still: Move it! Move it! Move it! ... Read more

The goal for the rest of this week is a minimum of 18,000 steps. This morning I walked for an hour and I'll get out after supper (if not storming but do love all the rain) for another 30 minutes. In the meantime I have a trip to Walmart schedu... Read more

This morning we went to church as usual and knew we had to hang around a while as pictures were being taken for various group activities. When we finished that we went to breakfast and met some friends there so that was fun. Then off to Lowe's... Read more

My exercise habits are good. I walk 5-6 days a week for an hour and I do 30-45 minutes on a stationary bike. In addition, I do some other project every day - gardening, painting, heavy cleaning, moving boxes and stock at the church thrift shop... Read more

We drove back to Florida yesterday for some family obligations and a couple of appointments. Before we left the mountains I took a short walk at 57 degrees - no or very low humidity and felt energized. This morning I was out the door at 6:... Read more

I'm trying really hard to lose 5% of total weight by the end of August. As part of this goal I am increasing activity. I can't do too much more actual exercise as I already average a 60 minute walk and a 45 minute bike ride 5-6 days a week. I... Read more

We woke to rain this morning so I had to change my routine a little bit. My stationary bike is out on the deck and it is covered so I did that first and got 40 minutes done. Then I had breakfast and made out my Wal-mart shopping list. Sti... Read more
