Day 80! People have gone around the world in that amount of time. Today I want to take a look back at what has happened since I started this adventure with you and see how far I have come versus how far I have to go.
I have not in actuality lost that much weight. Though I make an attempt to do all that I have written in the last 80 days, I really back slide some times. There may be other issues involved here. I know I am not eating…Read full post
Let’s discuss practical exercise. I stated last week that we really have become reliant on power. By power I mean electric and gas. There seems to be more and more ways for labor saving devices to help us get thru our days.

The days are getting shorter, leaves are starting to fall, and before we know it Halloween will be upon us. Whether we like it or not, it’s time to say farewell to all those colorful pots filled with formerly fabulous annuals (come on, they’re looking pretty sorry now) and pull out our fall decorations from the basement or attic. But as with all seasonal decorating, I think it’s important to pause before you…Read full post
