Walking Away
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      8 comments

I came home from the gym yesterday in an unusual state - stressed! This lady was eavesdropping on a conservation I was having with another woman. She obviously was quite an angry person and went off in a tangent, prattling away and giving me he... Read more
Eye of the Beholder
Saturday, July 06, 2013      9 comments

Yesterday I hired a wonderful lady called Emma, who is from the Phillipines to clean the house. She is a spotless housekeeper. There is clean and then her brand of clean. I only hire a house cleaner once in a blue moon because it is pricey. The ... Read more
Rodentia!

Yesterday, one of the ladies in my personal group training session proclaimed, "You are becoming a gym rat!" She said it with a laugh and a smile. Far from being insulted, I decided that as far as rodents go I will claim the title gym rat ... Read more

Energy, shmenergy
Saturday, June 29, 2013      10 comments

I have to tell you that I have always been a low energy person. Probably at 60, I have more energy than I did in my 30s or even my 20s. It certainly never occurred to me to exercise at those younger ages. I just didn't think I had the time and o... Read more

Well, guys in my group the Peppy Party we have had several members drop out, temporarily give up but luckily regroup, recharge and find Sparkpeople again. They always wonder if we will take them back - with open arms all the way! They usually ch... Read more
Muscle Shirt
Monday, June 17, 2013      10 comments

The personal trainer who helped me lose 44 pounds always wanted me to buy a sleeveless "muscle" shirt to show off my guns. At 60, I was reluctant to show my arms and especially my bra straps. Finally, on holiday I found the perfect "muscle s... Read more
Another Strength
Tuesday, June 11, 2013      5 comments

One of my strengths is the ability to make people laugh. I love doing that and I don't even care if they laugh at me or with me. Naturally, I prefer the latter. Finding our strengths is the June challenge for the Peppy Party. Laughter is s... Read more
