Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels

I was at water aerobics this morning.  The teacher was telling stories to keep us distracted because she was doing such a difficult arm workout. She said she had had a rough day earlier in the week, and was craving comfort food.  She had driven by a local fried chicken fast food restaurant and really, […]

Paid to exercise

This winter I have taken advantage of my free gym membership through Silver Sneakers.  I found an early morning water aerobics class where I can do squats and lunges which I can’t do on dry land. I am also enjoying their weight machines.  They have so many more choices than the fitness center in our […]

Catching up

Things have been absolutely CRAZY around here the past couple of months. Hannah just moved to Israel a couple of days ago, after living here for the past 6 months. She took up a lot of my time and energy- if she wanted to talk, I wanted to spend that time with her while I […]

Oh Dear.  Playing catch up again

The very first blog I ever wrote on the D’Adamo website was in 2004 right after the funeral for my Honorable Husband’s father.   Now, 14 years later, we have been going through the final illness and funeral for HH’s mother.

Dodging hurricanes and swimming laps

My sister has retired in Virginia.  I hadn’t seen her in almost 2 years, and that’s way too long!  My Honorable Husband has two close friends who have also retired on the East Coast – one in Virginia and one in North Carolina.  So we planned a 2-week vacation and bought airline tickets last spring.
