Good morning to you!!

Sandra, It is going to be a beautiful day here. It supposed to go to 64.

The three granddaughters are coming over to hang while their parents go to a movie and shoppng for Easter baskets. Tonight I am going to something called Farmer in the Dale. It is being held at our new fresh foods market called Freshfully. We will be sampling food from local restaurants using fresh local ingredients and beer from the local brewery. I am excited to get to go.

Good morning ladies! It's only 9:20am & I'm already having a great day...why? When I got home last night a package from Lands End was waiting for me with 3 new pairs of a smaller size than I usually order. Tried them on...& they fit! Size MEDIUM! WOOT! Now granted Lands End makes their Sport Knit pants on the generous side, but I haven't worn a size medium anything in...centuries.
Cloudy & cool here right now, but it's going to be in the low 70s later.

Cathy-whatever I fix for Easter dinner (just me) will have to be something already in the house; no way I'm facing the mobs at the grocery store between Easter & Passover they are all mobbed.

Sandra-39? In Florida? Brrr!

Sherry-Freshfully sounds fun. Enjoy the grandchildren...but I know you always do & they enjoy you.

Coffee in hand, & time to start work in my new size medium red slacks!

Looking warmer...... Smile Walk out in snow was a hard leg workout for sure. We walked the dogs on the snow machine trails and we would walk then sink poof up to your knee or thigh. it sure worked some major muscle groups omg we were laughing......I would squeel each time.....

ran errands, got my fresh fruits & veggies , good to going onto tm for a nice walk........

Sherry that sounds so cool.

HAPPY easter to all......... out for the bunny he can be sly when it comes to some treats.

Pam Smile...........I just wrote out the path we are taking for miles I am so thrilled, it looks like a great goal.... Together we can reach it.... Go sassies.........................

Sandra - 39 in Tampa???? Dang!
Sherry - what fun! I wanna go. Smile
Kat - SUPER proud of you!!!!!!
Denise - could NOT take that temp!

Been a crazy busy week, but we got out our annual HOA dues mailing today. Whew... A few days to breathe, and then the checks will start coming in - thousands of them. And it is my job to process all those checks. LOL

Going to have an hour to walk today while I wait for my son to finish play practice. Then home to crock pot chicken. I blew lunch today, but I've been doing great on food, so I was okay with that decision. Especially since it was a conscious decision and not a "I'm stressed, gonna eat" type reaction.

Hope everyone is having a great day~!

Evening everyone,

It was another 4 o'clock morning for me and it has been a long day. Finally home and sitting down, paying bills, etc. and waiting for the pork loin to get finished. Ugh, I have no idea what I am fixing on the side. Today it reached 73 here. Very tolerable. If I didn't have such a headache I would go out for a walk.

Cathy, I volunteer for our HOA but have no where near the volume to process. Speaking of I need to post the payments I took to the bank yesterday.

Sandra enjoy your ab workout with the trainer.

Kat you are back! Great job!

Renee - you are just all over the place, bet you will be glad to get home.

Anne - what's new in AZ?

Donna - how's the ankle?

Denise - Sassy proud as always! Happy Easter to you also!

Sherry that sounds like a blast. I know you will have fun!

Laurie don't "work" to hard at the mixer tonight. Let's try and catch up some time tomorrow.

Going to get some advil...

Bye for now.

Hi ladies! Time for me to head home & watch some more March Madness while I do some cardio. The new exercises Monica showed me yesterday didn't/don't seem too hard but boy am I getting stiff in different places so I do need the work.

Laurie-enjoy the mixer.

Pam-thanks for doing all the planning for our route...I would have no idea where to even start! You rock!

Renee-you ever get to LA? Sounds like you've been just about everywhere else!

Well, off home...will get rid of "fat" pants during halftime!

Evening all,

Day was good. Lots of moving and shaking. Walk this am, then tonight I went to the y, almost not, but went and did a toning session.
I am going to make an appt with my doctor for 2 reasons.

1- my left hip is still killing me, and maybe a year is too long to push it aside. (yes I know it is too long) Smile

2- I get a headache shorlty after starting to workout or almost at end . and I know spring and fall are my headache times, but better just get a check up, in case.

sleep tight and drink your water ladies, it is good for our complexions and bowels.......................
