It's time for football! Coming from Ohio, my relatives and friends there are sporting the scarlet and grey block O. Here in Michigan it's maize and blue. For me, I just laugh at all the rivalry. I'm not an armchair quarterback and neither is my hubby. Enjoy the games if you are a football fan.I'll get to hear the results from everyone else while I enjoy doing other things.
Speaking of goals, not goal posts, how are you doing with yours? It's easy to look back at time to see mile markers in our lives. On Facebook, I was greeted with 5 Years Ago to see myself with my first husband on a cruise ship. It was our make-a-wish without Make-a-Wish involved. That brought back a bunch of memories!

Exercise Tip of the Week: Tricep Dips
Triceps are a neglected muscle group because our daily activities don't require them to work as much as what people needed when work was more physical in nature. These dandy muscles help with pushing, pulling, lifting, and holding. For those of you who hate the sag, toning them with this exercise will help strengthen and firm them up. Caution: make sure the chair won't slide or tip! Start seated with hands placed as in the picture. Slide your butt off the seat with knees bent. Slowly lower your body until your elbows are 90 degrees then press body up with arms. Begin with 5-8 reps and work your way up to 12 in a set.Caution: this may aggravate shoulder problems. Advanced: Straighten, but don't lock knees, place heels on a step. Another variation that kicks in the core would be to straighten body into a table position at the up phase. Enjoy!
