Morning Sassies, Gee looks like I'm the first one up this morning.

Off today and have 2 killer workouts planned as I've been off from the gym for almost 2 weeks. Will let you all know how my workout goes and how I feel when I get home.

Mid morning teamies,

I missed yesterday but a little break is good when u never take one. I started yesterday with a walk in the hills and ended with four hours of retail. I should check my steps. Healing vibes to Donna, Megan, and Brendas Mil. Sarah u must be feeling better?

Denise, Yeah were healthy!

Megan, Hope u get the gym. That,s ambitious goal, can I come work for you. I love this more than retail. What does your hubby do?

I,m laying low till New year,s.

I am grateful I have u in the New Year! And coffee,lol Laurie

I want to be a free spirit in a grown up life!

Hello all- Oh how I miss you........... but I'm still here! My goal is to start using the NINJA blender I got for Xmas. My list is made and ready for the new challenge I feel horrible and the madness needs to end.
Leg is slowly healing and n the mend. I really want to go walk on the treadmill and see what it does.

Donna? You are sick? what's wrong?

Denise so glad you enjoyed your family time.
Laurie I hear walking in the hills and I cringe. LOL Sorry.

Enjoy your day

Susan

Susan I want that Ninja let me know how you like it.. one of the guys at work claim its what helped him loose lots and got a lot of his veggies in that he would never of eaten any other way.

Denise - So glad your Family time was good... I have Larrys here on the 4th this year we are a small group as two of his brothers with their families will not be in Michigan.. only 28 for dinner this year it will be a quiet fun time... I'm use to 40 - 52... LOL

Laurie I see you walking your Mountains, as I said those are not hills.. LOL

Hope that everyone has a good night.. Off to take another nap

Laurie here's the deal. It's the local women only gym that has been in business for 21 years and the one I started with 4 years ago? 280 members, if we can keep them from going anywhere and maintaining their membership, and work out a deal with the landlord so he lowers the rent, and make payments to the old friend of mine that owns the gym, then I could be the proud owner of a gym by the end of the year. The time is now, the opportunity is there, can I run it? Yes. Do I have the ambition and drive? I do! Can I arrange financing? Maybe. The 22 - 24 employees are already losing their jobs. I hope to retain some of them because I am not a personal trainer yet! Nor do I teach Yoga! It's like a community so if I can keep them from transferring over to another gym then I think it can be a good business decision. It's all a matter of negotiating, praying, and deciding if it's worth it or not. Sure beats the small studio that I'm currently teaching in that can only hold about 5 students!
Keep me in your thoughts this weekend everyone and pray that this deal goes through!

Off in 20 minutes...can't wait & I've only been back for 1 day!...will be busy this weekend as one of my neighbors is making an end-of-the-year thrift shop run & will take whatever I have that's good enough to donate.

Have a great weekend,

Hello ladies,

Have been away for what seems forever.

Megan that is wonderful news! Best of luck.

Donna, a sinus infection yuck! Hope you are better soon.

Susan, your progress has been slow but you will be so much stronger in the end.

Brenda, I didn't have much of a plan today either so have mainly hung out with the kids and watched tv. We all had a nice nap, lol!

Sarah, you are so dedicated, can you send me a chunk of it?

Laurie, yes laying fairly low until the New Year also. I do have to go back to work on Monday, but surprisingly I am ready to get the year closed out and move on to better things in the New Year.

Kat, you wanna come go through my stuff too? I haven't even given any thought to end of the year donations. Ugh!

Denise, enjoying time with family, how special.

Well, I have been syncing my fitbit daily but haven't posted any totals. Yesterday, it seemed that I had to keep waking it up to get it to register.

Hope everyone has had a good day.

Pam
