Week 9 – going well

I had a good legs and back workout tonight. I am learning how to hurry Tony along… he tends to chat too much during the workout so I skip forward and start the next exercise without him. I can usually get done with a whole set before he stops yapping.  I really like the workout, …

Drippying, sweating core workout

I had a great workout tonight with Core Synergetics. I did all the moves better than ever… except one… yes, the stupid Dreya Roll. I tried and tried. I used some of the advice given to me – I kept my feet close to my butt, I went as fast and I could but nothing …

Harvest!

This week I finally started to get some tomatoes. They look good, but we have eaten two and they are not as delicious as I had hoped. Maybe I have built up such a high expectation for them that they cannot possible live up to it! So, I picked this last round and I am …
