Good job Lon, Snow is all gone at my place for now. I am still on the elliptical 3 times a week, and lifting weights. I keep thinking that I will go running again, but am afraid of falling.

Hello Team! grin

We got our #5 grandson last week. Mama was very ready to deliver, so we got to play with #4 even more than usual.

I'm still swimming e/o day and walking in between. Spring is happening here, and I'm loving grad school.

Here's a cool gentle exercise video. I really like the hand stretches. [video:youtube][/video]

Congratulations on the new grandson smile

I've not been on for ages time is just flying by been so busy. STILL working it with swimming, yoga, walking and now the weather is better gardening. Apparently my hamstrings are coming on a treat in yoga!! whish my back bends and twists were though apparently that takes longer (years) and doesn't happen until your hamstrings have given all they've got, one can dream smile.

Orch you should try yoga if you are worried about falling. It has done wonders for my balance several times I have been saved from what would have been nasty slips/ falls by my improved balance and muscle memory from yoga. For example while picking raspberries in the garden on steep ground I slipped went right down into a crouch and bounced back up again. No bum on ground or hands and I didnt spill a single raspberry shocked That would have killed my knees and been impossible pre my swimming and yoga. I also had a huge slip on a flat icy track but managed to recover without falling, it would have been a very hard landing otherwise!

NSD almost all the way
No dairy hard cheeses occasionally and homemade ghee
