      No unfortunately not.I wish I looked like that. Howeveer I do exercise every day. I walk the dogs each morning for approx 1 hour and I go to yoga classes 3 times a week and I am having a golf lesson one day a week. My Mum had breast cancer so I am very aware of trying to do the right thing. πŸ™‚
