Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


Happy New Year

I joined a gym in June 2007 and have been a regular since. When I joined Weight Watchers in October 2006 it was advised that exercise didn’t start immediately.

Chugging water, practicing yoga

There are 21 people participating in the Facebook event. One participant let the group know that she recently took a CPR class and was told my […]


Trying to stay hydrated in Barcelona

We arrived in Barcelona late Satirday afternoon. We have already had amazing food, delicious sangria and so much fun. When I travel, whether domestic or international I struggle with getting in enough water every day. I do travel with my own water bottle, which I can fill up. I noticed yesterday as we did a […]
