    I loved your comment about stair masters on an article about smarter work out choices. Made me I believe exercise bikes are true instruments of evil! Ha, not reeeeeaaaally, guess I just spent toooOoO much time on them after my knee replacements.

    Hi weird lady-- I'm weird too! When I saw your comments about not rewarding yourself for your daily work, it struck a chord with me. I don't subscribe to the "pampered self" recommendations--
    By the way, your picture is lovely and so is your smile--!
    Wishing you a very blessed day!

    I read your post on those "hard cold facts". I wrote on the blog in response to yours. I am posting it hear because I hope you will read it and take heart :) All movement is good movement!

    All very true. The part I think some people miss while reading this is that it has to be hard. If it is HARD for you to be in motion for 10 minutes then you are working out. My first walk of a 1/2 mile had me breathless and exhausted. That was a work out. Months latter my 4 mile will leave me breathless if I am pushing it. That too is a work out. For me, at this point logging in heavy house cleaning won't work. If House cleaning leaves you exhausted and is hard, It is a work out. All movement is good. Please do what you can when you can. Push yourself when you can. Do not give up!!

    ** I hope this in some little way gives you that encouragement we all do need at times**

    I agree with you about rewards for reaching your health goals! They seem really strange. It seems counter-intuitive to me. I was going to buy jeans when I got to a certain weight, and I was hovering at a lb above for a long time. And then I just gave up and everything fell through. I gained back the weight I had lost. For some people, waiting for a reward can make the problem worse. I wish I had just bought those jeans, because I was so close and needed a pair. Getting healthier is its own reward, and as we lose weight, we'll be able to buy different clothes, just naturally.

    I hope you're enjoying Spring! emoticon

    P.S. I added you as a friend!

    I read your comment about exercise at 65 and I'm 65 as well (Class of '67) and I know we have to work at it daily to avoid all that can happen to us. We don't want this.... emoticon

    Look up

    That is Stephen Jepson's web site and he has lots of videos on YouTube. He is 73. He points out that we can make new brain cells by working at keeping our balance and our minds through exercises. He is a really interesting guy.
    Also, Priscilla Patrick who is 73, has her web site at
    She taught Yoga on PBS-TV for a number of years and still has her studio. She is the mother of 3 grown children. emoticon
