Today was a good day. The weather was perfect for working outside. I put in a raised bed over the summer in the front yard. And I've been waiting for the right time to plant my seeds. I planted different seeds last weekend. I can already s... Read more

I taught my Zumba Gold class this morning with no problems from my leg. It’s a good thing I didn’t have to walk downstairs to teach… That hurts. I had consumed almost all of my allotted calories by 2:30 this afternoon. So that leaves cele... Read more
