Corgi walking for fun!

Hi Jackie - Well, the plumbing job didn't go as planned so we're without a bathroom sink until at least Thursday or so. : (

I go to Redwood Covenant Church over on Sebastopol Rd. If you go to Sebastopol Rd and turn RT, its down by the business park past the condos on the RT.
I've been going there about 5 yrs now - how time flies! I've been involved in different ministries through the time. This last year on the Women's Ministry Team, and the last two years or so a Women of Faith group leader for the event in October in Sacramento. This is my last year doing that and the Women's Ministry Team.
I still volunteer in the Welcome Center after 2nd service. They have a hard time finding people to do thatl
Plus I'm in a book club that now meets monthly on a Saturday afternoon in different ladies' homes. We're reading Jane Eyre right now.

I'm back to the gym just after 4:00 am tomorrow for the treadmill and then to the gym at work for a lower body workout. I'm thinking of having one of the personal trainers there show me how to use the Smith Squat machine.

Glad you had a great cardio session, you can do the Zumba! There's a learning curve to all of them even when you're in the group setting with others. I figure if I'm giving it my best effort over time my movements improve and I'll get it.
I used to do Richard Simmons early in the morning before my road construction job, and it really helped with my weight and my flexibility.

Hehe cool emoticon I was actually going to ask last week if you got to church. What church do you go to if you don't mind me asking?

That video and Blood Sugar Solution book sound good. It's awesome when you find stuff that work for you. I actually tried looking up some Zumba videos. I think I may just pick one up from the store. It looks like it might take me awhile to learn it but they break the moves down enough that I think I could learn it. I keep hearing from so many people how fun it is. I did do my Stengel training today. I had an intense cardio workout yesterday-- it was so fun. I hope to get in another good cardio tomorrow :) Sounds like you're going to be a busy bee tomorrow. I've got a bit of cleaning to do and maybe I will give the kitty's their baths. Today seemed to just fly by.

Hi Jackie,
Sunday I need to be at church by 9 and will be there until 1 in the afternoon, actually the next few Sundays that will be my schedule.
I attend one service and help out during the last service. Normally I do this the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month but this month one of the church staff is on vacation for a few weeks so they need more volunteers (that's me!).

How's your week been?
What videos do you do? I've been looking at the Chalene Extreme video set and will order that soon to do at home in addition to going to the gym for weights and the treadmill, eliptical etc.

I'm reading a book called "The Blood Sugar Solution" by Mark Hyman, MD.
Since I have diabetes and the other often associated illnesses, I find this book brings together many of the concepts from other sources. Plus it still features a plant based food plan, no sugar, no refined grains, lean proteins etc.
Plus it brings in exercise, using blood glucose readings, journaling, logging food and exercise, meditation, etc. Its actually pretty good and the plan is designed to ease into it.
Tomorrow morning and maybe early afternoon I'll be the worker bee while my uncle helps me take our bathroom sink off the wall, replace the pipes and reattach the sink to the wall. After that I'll do some gardening and other things around the house to keep caught up.

Hi Kathy how are you? Hope you haven't been too busy this week. I was pretty sore after our walk last week. I think I am going to walk there again this Sunday. Maybe the same time (or a half hour earlier). I plan on doing strength training tomorrow so I should probably try to walk on Sunday cause I seem to get a bit stiff and sore after those walks-- more so than when I do any of my other workouts. You know what-- maybe some day if you want to do more workouts together you could come over. I do all kinds of video workouts (and all the videos have modifications so I won't hurt myself). I hope you have a great weekend :)

Good morning! Hope you slept well. My throat seems fine today emoticon I have a bit of a headache coming on but that's nothing. I will be heading down towards the creek soon. Been dealing with these mischievous cats all morning :)
