Oh dear! I always feel so guilty when I see this monthly thread start up. I've been using my sore knee as an excuse - and it is sore. However, I am going to try to post some sort of physical activity for each day even if it's something as simple as weeding for an hour or doing a short walk. It's too darn hot for the treadmill but I'll be back at it soon.
