Been camping at Table Rock State Park and then moved to the Branson KOA, all in Branson, Missouri. Keeping up with the exercise has been a challenge but walking the dogs has helped. I did bring my weights so I could continue with my upper body s... Read more

We’re camping this week at Table Rock State Park. Sticking with program is a bit more challenging for me when camping because the urge to snack is very strong. However, so far I’ve done very well. Today while out and about, we did eat at a fast ... Read more
