Wednesday, July 25, 2007      1 comments

WID and the scale is holding it's own. Not up, not down! That is a good thing. The left arm is quite painful and the entire left side of my body is just now starting to heal after bouncing it around on cement. I feel pretty proud of myse... Read more

I just love summer. Busy outdoors, getting exercise while doing the things I love, eating healthy and feeling great! Since it gets so warm about the time we want our dinner, we always grill in the summertime and have a large salad! During... Read more
Strength exercise I didn't know I was doing!

While doing my strength exercises today, I commented to DH that my left leg is stronger and doesn't get tired as quickly as the right. I've always thought they were used equally. Afterall, they take turns taking steps! LOL! DH looked at me l... Read more
I wore a belt today!

DD gave me a cute pair of capris for Mother's Day. Today, I decided to wear them, but when I put the shirt on over them, it looked funny. Tucked the shirt in, and needed a wide belt. I pulled out a belt I wore years ago with my Levi's when wo... Read more
