I am feeling very encouraged today. I worked out yesterday, and today I was concerned about having too many things to do to get to the gym. Well, what pops up but the 10 minute a day program. I can do that. I will be able to work that in on ... Read more

I went to the gym today (I have SilverSneakers so my insurance pays for it) and met with the personal coach. She gave me a structured exercise program to follow. I needed that. I have to have something to show me exactly what I need to do. I... Read more

I have't posted anything in quite a while as I gave up for a while on my weight. It is so easy to look at the world and say to yourself that there are a lot of people in worse shape than I am, so why should I work at it. Well, I finally have m... Read more
