I have organized recipes that are healthier choices and started coordinating a shopping plan with coupons. Food is expensive, especially organic.

Way to go. That sweet roll is probably 300 kcals. Multiply that by 7 and you've just cut 2,100 kcals per week. That is a significant change.

I have cut out my morning sweet roll.  Just that one small step.  I also have started working in the yard at least 15 min.  I breath consciously, deep and relaxed, and I thank God I am able to take care of my 91 year old mother for one more day.  If I can, I stretch that 15 minutes and realize life is good.

I am trying to do the driving exercise program you have on AARP daily.  I have back problems and want to strengthen my arms and back and stomach. (15 minutes daily and try to work up to 30).

I have been traveling for over 2 weeks, sleeping in hotels and family beds -all different mattresses. My back gets stiff and begins to trouble me because I have not been exercising. Plus away from home I have definitely not been eating properly. I am going to buy a fit bit this week and use an online app tot rack calories rather than guess. I am also going to work Pilates back into my practice this week at least once this week and then build back up.
