I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    Thank you for the Goodie....you better believe it. This is the first day I have gotten out to drive. Roads leading to main road and our developmnt was packed down with ice. I was afraid I would fall so did my daughter. Today was not bad. Have a great evening and Happy New Year!!! emoticon emoticon

    Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blogs recently-- I always love when you comment (even if I don't get around to replying!). You can TOTALLY have smokin' hott arms, lady-- no matter your age!!! It's an awesome thing to work toward. Trust me, I didn't START where I am now. Check out some of my pics from last year to see how my arms spread against my sides-- they were pretty flabby wings. It takes a TON of focus and work to get them looking the way you want, but it's worth it. It's not easy just 'cuz I'm young-- it takes lots of strength training! YOU CAN DO IT!!! :)

    I'm eating more beans, cheese, pasta & nuts, but I have a lot of trouble with my blood sugar (reactive hypoglycemia) so it's a challenge to get enough protein. I don't eat soy because I'm a breast cancer survivor and my cancer was an "estrogen lover".

    When I do eat meat, it's chicken or fish but I am working on reducing/eliminating those. I have real ethical problems with eating meat now as well as the health issues.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog! So what do you eat now? I am going to eat as little chicken and beef and lunchmeat as possible but as a beginning cook I have little options :(
