While walking through the neighborhood yesterday, I saw one of my neighbors with her right arm in a sling. Of course the powerful and need to know all Taurus came out of me and I asked her what happened. She told me that she was working out in the gym and tried a new exercise that had been recommended to her. Well, you guessed it, she fell and broke her arm. It was so severe that it required surgery (ouch!!) My exercise routine consists of walking - lots of walking. At lunch, during daily breaks at work and on weekends. When I stop at a mall or a store, I park at the back of the lot. I'm usually in and out of the store while the "parking lot vultures" are still circling looking for that FRONT ROW SPOT!!! I decided to walk because at my age, I didn't want to start an exercise program that I would not continue. Plus, let's face it, I'm frugal. I don't want to spend money to stand in line to use a piece of equipment. Walking - it's cheap, easy and it WORKS!!!!! Try it - and good luck with your lifestyle changes!!!! Break a leg!!! Oh, I didn't just say that, did I????
