  1. HI, girls! Thanks for signing up to follow my blog on diet, exercise and living past 100. I am enjoying my visit to yours. I totally support your goal of promoting a healthy lifestyle. That is so much more positive than trying to lose weight. Also, Kimberly, we have some weird similarities. My girlfriend was a professional dancer, including ballet, for 20 years before blowing out her knee. Also, I am a retired journalist who taught at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern. I have gotten into health and fitness writing since retiring. Best of luck with your blog!
