After a long absence from the gym, my body was no longer in shape, even though my mind thought otherwise.

  1. Great article, Gogs. I need to call junk food fun food because dessert is something I love. All food should be fun food, including health food. I am not there yet with broccoli.

    I work hard at the exercise angle because it supports my overall quest to be as healthy as I can be living with cancer. And it’s usually fun.

    1. Thank you, Kristie. I like you calling junk food, fun food. It’s my big weakness, and it certainly is fun food! I’m getting better at managing healthy eating, but still have a long way to go. I don’t have any issues working hard exercising. And as you say, exercising is usually fun!
