Wellness/Fitness thread 5/8/03

  1. Under the headline of better late than never today's thread comes! (That old saw may also have to serve as our quote today lol.) Actually, it's a good one. It's never too late to jump in. 90 year olds benefit from strength training - just imagine what *you* can do!

    It's been a busy couple of days and I have fallen into the trap of excuses - I'm back on the wagon today. Off to run right after work and then dancing tonight as my reward .

    Recipe in a few minutes! It had better be a quick one today lol.

    (((hugs))) to everyone for all their hard work. Keep it up even when the world is conspiring against you .

    THERE you are !!!

    Was lookin' for ya ! Did my workout as soon as I got home from work and before I went out back to enjoy some sunshine ! YES !!!

    And I've lost 4 lbs. since I started back a couple weeks ago ! But have added muscle in those places instead, so that looks far better !

    DANCING ! How wonderful ! GREAT excercise, and fun to boot ! You GO ! Lucky girl.

    6 green onions, sliced
