    My curling friends say Barbados is the best Because they only drink champagne on the beaches. Who wants to move?

    I don't even need to pack my bags... I'll just buy what ever I need there. I'm ready. lol

    Hahah right! All you'll really need are a couple of bathing suits

    and for this bit while we're all down there... perhaps some sunscreen till we get acclimated.

    Yes. I'll always need the sunscreen. I either burn or freckle I need my sunscreen

    I like freckles. I think they're cute.... but we don't want anyone getting skin cancer.... so first round of sunscreen is on me. lol :D

    Good morning middle agers. :) Hump day is looking good so far, the rain has finally stopped and it's looking like we might even get some sun.
    I hope you are all having a great day and take it easy on the tacos eh, it is Tuesday for you guys after all 😄🌮🌮

    Good day Jo ~ as the rain ends there ~ so it begins here.... down deep South of Alabama. While I don't mind walking in the rain, in fact I find it refreshing, calming and down right fun.... I don't want to get struck by lightning. So today's physical work shall be done inside. lol.

    I actually quite like some rainy days, especially if I have no chores and can huddle up on the lounge with a blanket, some popcorn and a good movie.. blisssss

    Yeah, don't get struck by lightning, I hear that's no fun 😄
    Good morning middle-agers HHD 🐪🐫

    Now you're talking my kind of day.... while I don't get many days like that, where there is nothing to do, and raining. lol. Yes... bonus points if it's mid-afternoon, dark clouds and rain falling - popcorn (butter and light salt lol) have it cool in the house so that you can be under a blanket and not be hot.... a good movie.... and perhaps.... drift off to sleep.... awwww sheer bliss indeed

    Morning all.
    I normally do yoga before breakfast on a Thursday morning, through a Zoom class. I logged on two minutes late, and 15 minutes later I was still waiting in the virtual lobby. So I gave up on the yoga, and went for a walk instead. So I got to 10,000 steps before breakfast - it's something I may do more frequently, as I quite enjoyed it.

    A young buck wandered across the path at one point.t5vf7v52e2r3.jpg

    That's beautiful I think the wall would trump yoga if you get to see animals.

    I gave up on a step counter because I'd almost always have 10k steps before lunch. I realized I'm more active than I thought

    Hi everyone! I'm not a newbie but I've been absent for quite some time. I want to get back on the fitness wagon and I feel really excited to get going; especially having the MFP community interaction, which is pretty powerful. <3

    Welcome Siouxsie - there is enough room in this old wagon for you to come back lol.

    My name is Dave, I have been here a long time and had lots of success when active in the community and with my friends. But as many I have fallen again. I think I sat over 2 years feeling sorry for myself...lol. I just could not push myself back. I feel ashamed I have over 3000 days of logging in but that has always been my life line to keep hope that I would do what I am doing now and get back. I had a lot of friends and I was very active with most. But since I fell off I removed most of them. It was not fair to them. So I am reluctant to ask for more friends but if I commit I probably will get back at it. If I return to my old self you will not be disappointed with my activity and support. Add me and lets get healthy.

    We've been friends for most of those 3000 days. I know you can do this! 2020 has been tough, but we're going to finish it strong. 🤗

    We all fall off from time to time but it's getting back on that counts.

    37 here! Been a member since forever but need to get back in a groove. I'm great at working out 5 days a week, not so good at facing my food demons.

    I feel the same way ~ first of all welcome. I can workout and I'll do good on my food... then... that demon comes out in the form of bad food choices.... yikes.
