beautiful kdrama~! and I am planning to check out a gym today, it also has "silver sneakers, that is based on the older folks, not too far from me. said I was going to do somethjing.
I did some walking with my little dog yesterday, around a big shopping center, and so out of it! hips screaming this morning, yep out of shape for sure, so like I said going to work on me, get me straightened out & up! no one cant do it for me, so I do it!

hopefully they have palates or yoga


#144

I do a lot of YOGA - I love it - it took a chiropractor to help my hip - I had an injury and I was in pain for almost 10 years - Not anymore! That is why I can do the things I do now!!!

I had Piriformis syndrome - and I’m sure I still do

(bowling injury - I know :laughing:)


#145

my thing is, I used to do yoga daily when I was younger, loved it, but I stopped it some 20 years ago, IO do hit and miss these past years, so what can I do to really get back into the yoga?? I really want to get back into “shape” if you know what I mean


#146

ok, y’all, I did it, I just joined a gym that has silver sneakers AND has yoga as well!! so I answered my own question, JUST DO IT!! you all I thank you for nudging me, but if I want to get back in shape, I have to do it! so I am working on it!


#147

The gym is now my addiction - exercise makes me feel so good! And I met someone yesterday - and talked for a while - nice to find new friends. I had a trainer now I’m doing it by myself and I was scared of the machines! No more

Have you gone to the gym?? Do tell how that is going! I am off to the gym this morning for my 30 min treadmill walk and workout!!!


#152

#153

I just got back working out for about hour and 1/2 - feels good - time to go get the hair did!!! LOL


#154

I do plan to go a couple times a week to start with, yesterday, I really got it going, and I so much want to keep going. Just saw a "shuffel dance in one of our other links, and am thinking of doing some dancing alone "with a chair or broom ", get my hips limber again!! so got a plan, and planning to do this…

theres another link on here about Christmas, I put my thoughts and ideas there, but no depression as I wrote it! and y’know really it kinda made me feel better about this upcoming holiday. we discussed earlier about what to do and all,

I have decided to make a batch of cookies, and some cakes and just give them, share time with a person thats lonely.
so my goal not to be depressed or up set cause of no traditions, and make my own.

oh forgot to tell y’all, as for Thanksgiving, I enjoyed my day! parades and all, good lunch, an awesome day!! so Christmas coming up, I plan to do the same thing.
3 weeks to start giving not wait for Christmas!!


#155

Off to work with my trainer!!!


Traditions -- old and new -- that you celebrate
#156

ok, I know this is all about depression, the holidays and all, I found this on Facebook just now, I know some may have lost a loved one and all, I pray this is appropriate for someone, I just want you to know you aren’t alone, God does love you we love you too

“It was the night before Christmas and Santa was busy making his rounds

He was light on his feet making sure he didn’t make a sound.

But he took notice that some homes didn’t have that Christmas Glee.

so he decided to stop because he thought that just can’t be.

He crept in a mommy’s bedroom and stopped dead in his steps, as he saw a little angel hugging his mom as she slept

The little angel looked up and cried " oh Santa you are finally here!!

I’ve been waiting for you to help me let Mommy know I am near".

Santa picked up the wee angel and asked him " What can I do? I’m just a simple toy maker I can’t make your mommy’s dreams come true".

So the two of them sat and they sat for a while until the tiny angel jumped up and screamed with a smile.

"let’s leave her a sign a beautiful sign from above,

let her know it’s from me sent from heaven with love"!!!

So Santa dug and he dug deep, in that big glorious bag that was filled with lots of treats .

He pulled out a beautiful white feather that look like it was made out of snow.

And he thought such a beautiful sign that only a grieving mother would know.

He placed it on her nightstand and kissed the angel on his head.

Then placed him next to his mom as she slumbered in bed.

I think I’ll stay here with Mommy and visit her in her dreams tonight,

She misses me dearly and needs to know I’m all right.

Santa made his way to his sled, And wiped a tear from his eye.

He fell to his knees and managed to cry.

Merry Christmas to all the grieving mothers across this big land.

And let it be known your angels are with you holding your hands…”

@frustratedwriter

My daughter bought me a MP3 bc the second one broke, too. I added music like bachata, merengue, salsa, reggaeton and many more like Disco music and JERUSALEMA which has the steps on YOUTUBE and is so much fun! So I started dancing as I heard the newly added songs and I felt so good afterwards. I was sweating like a pig so had to take a bath when I had just taken one. So it was good exercise and GOOD for the spirits. I slept like a log…:sleeping::sleeping_bed::sleeping::sleeping::sleeping::sleeping_bed:

EASY STEPS TO JERUSALEMA DANCE
