My Boston Fern looks pitiful. I know that the time of year is a factor, with the lack of light, and the dry air from the heat, but my fern is barely alive. Just look at the poor miserable thing! I’ve been misting it with water, and placing it in different areas of the house. It just gets worse. Continue reading “Boston Ferns”

I had to walk out on Denise’s step class tonight because my calf muscle got so tight that I couldn’t stand on it anymore . My good friend Sy told me, “pickle juice….drink some pickle juice!” She swears by it! Continue reading “Pickle Juice for Muscle Cramps”
Madame Sherri Forest
Tonight in the locker room, I overheard a couple of women talking about this great little hike out in Chesterfield, the Madame Sherri Forest. I’ve hiked there several times. It is beautiful any time of year, and dogs are welcome. Continue reading “Madame Sherri Forest”
Thank you for bringing in the protein bars Denise!
Save money and make your own protein bars. These are easy to make and easy to make your favorite substitutions. Instead of peanut butter, use almond butter. Use cranberries instead of raisins! Continue reading “Protein Bars”
What is Locker Room News
Because my job requires me to sit at a computer all day, I try to make up for that by exercising at the gym. Although walking and being outdoors is great exercise and mentally therapeutic, my gym membership provides even more than another venue for exercise.
For years now, practically every time I go to the gym, I leave the locker room with some bit of information that has some value to me. I’ll find out about a new restaurant in town, or consignment shop that I really should visit, receive advice on how not to kill my plants, exchange recipes, hear about a good book or movie. Sadly, I’ll also find out about acquaintances who are going through hard times due to illness, or tragedy. But these are things I want to know about.
My fellow gym friends at the Bond Wellness Center and Crotched Mountain Pool are part of my social life! I look forward to seeing them, hearing about what they are doing, where they’ve been, and what their interests are.
This blog will be my attempt to share my locker room news with those of you who are interested.
