The New Year

Tuesday and a New Yogurt!

So much for the creative blog titles this week, I guess. More on the new yogurt in a few minutes. This morning I made a smoothie! I cannot remember why I got out of the habit of making them this summer, but I did. I was happy to have a smoothie this morning. But I…… Continue reading Tuesday and a New Yogurt!

Stepping it up

For the past week or two I have been stepping up my exercise routines. Last week I exercised FIVE DAYS of the seven day week. This week has been the same – and by exercise I am including the brisk walks that I take, as long as they are half an hour or longer. Last…… Continue reading Stepping it up
