My Interview with Bob Greene

Last week, I told you about my participation in the Get Fit with Omron campaign. For me, the journey to physical fitness is more a change in attitude than anything else.

An Update on Me The last time I updated you on my healthier eating plan, I was down 7 pounds and nursing some pulled muscles from an overzealous workout. It’s been six weeks since then, and I’m happy to say that I’m still working at it.

Back then, I was using … Read more

Her legs are too small for the leg strap, so we had to make adjustments. How cute is she? She’s even cuter when she’s lifting her left arm, then right arm, then left arm. Some days, I get up early just to exercise with her. I think she loves it as much as I do. Stop by tomorrow to hear the rest of the story. It’s … Read more
