    You've said it perfectly, Tom, I couldn't agree more. Your getting by on less cardio time as I am but there are some years between us. Right again about taking risks when young. Listen to one's body and moderate, right!

    Ho lo! You are indeed a very clever and funny lady- and I love it! Your right, DJ, I was thinking of men with that question on reflection. The first time I changed a babies diaper by myself I told her mother and auntie- damn, you gals do work hard!

    That is interesting you mention water exercise for back probs, Neha. Very glad it worked out so well for you- backs are one of our vulnerable spots for sure but sadly I've known a few that water exercise made their hurts worse.
