  • New week coming, I am looking forward.

    5/26/2018 6:27:41 PM, by NWME4EVRMARYANN

    I have had a lazy kind of week. A few blips on the screen, but am past it now. Didn't do as well as I hoped, but I made a fairly good run at it. I have decided to stir up my food a little. With not wearing my new teeth, my foods are fairly limited, so I don't get a lot of freggies. I ... Read more

  • Arms are much harder than legs

    5/25/2018 8:13:55 AM, by FANNISHMOM

    I focused more on arms than legs today and I think they are much more difficult to do and you feel it more. I'm guessing because your legs are always working carrying around your own weight. Eventually, it won't be as bad as now, but it isn't ever going to be fun.... Read more
