Let's Exercise


I spent some times at Curves this morning. Curves is a 30 minute exercise club for only women. I have just passed my 100th workout and in the last month started "Curves Smart" which is like having a personal trainer via the computer. It is all pretty technical, but you have your own private key card which programs each hydraulic exercise machine to make you work harder and to progress.


I feel fortunate in that I would just like to lose 20 pounds, but the toning and strengthening of the muscles is the real reward. If I had to do anything different, I would have started this at about age 45 or 50, when the body starts deteriorating without strengthening exercise.

  1. You go girl! I think that whatever exercise does for the body it does more for the spirits.

    Go for it Susan! Exercise is the best way to prevent a lot of diseases. Not only is exercise good for the body, but it is good for the mind and soul as well. It also does wonders for your self image. I have been exercising religiously for the past 13 years, four times a week, 1 hour each session. It is a lifestyle and not just a pssing fad. It does require commitment, discipline and plain old hard work, but it is worth it!

  4. Good job Susan...keep up all the hard work, your heart depends on it!

    Btw...our place is up in "Black Pine Meadows", on the way to "Rock Creek". You can see the house from the hwy, up on the hill as you pass the entrance into the development.
