In the past week
It’s good to take on whatever attitude give you drive and makes it possible for you to keep up. Yes, it’s been a hard year, but that doesn’t look like it’s changing, so if we can step up, great!
That’s one of the decisions I’m finding the hardest. I don’t think running in a mask is a good idea, unless you can do it. I don’t feel I can breathe fast enough in a mask but there are probably some out there that are designed for that. If you have to pass near someone and can’t go widely around, smile on approach, but look away with your m…[Read more]
I’m trying to keep up walking throughout the summer because it’s my main cardio. I do other workouts with hand weights and yoga and a few others at home, but walking is when I go outside and really move around. It’s doing a lot for my mental health since I get sunlight, fresh air and I walk with someone so it’s social, too. But the heat is…[Read more]
No matter how much sunscreen I wear, UV protective clothing, big hats and so on, I am getting a tan. In fact, I’m getting a weird tan from areas that simply burn no matter how much covering up I do.

If you just need to clean it up and add some grease to the chain, I’d say just go for it yourself. But if you need to do repairs on the brakes or something else like that, I’d be careful what decisions you make. Maybe check out some good quality YouTube tutorials to help you decide whether the things you need to do are things you can do or if y…[Read more]
OMG a barre workout is so hard. I thought I was going to collapse in my last one. They were hard on my lower body but I could only barely do the upper body part with bare hands. Everyone else was holding hand weights!
Penny, you really made me laugh. Who of us doesn’t have a bunch of gym junk we’re not using. THe first workout is getting the equipment out of wherever it’s stored. Then we get to either try it out or have it ready to toss or donate when everything goes back to normal.
