I Think I smell spring in the air.

Friday, March 05, 2010

Just heard that the weekend weather is supposed to hit the 50"s. Bike riding anyone? I will definitely get out and enjoy this.

Is it spring yet?

Thursday, March 04, 2010

I'm feeling a bit tired today. In need some encouragement. At least the sun is shining again. I'm happy to see all the snow melting even though it has left huge potholes in the streets. emoticon

    I find that I feel better in the spring too. This time of year especially, I find if it's gloomy... so am I. I love seeing the sunshine and snow melting, etc...

You're not alone

Feeling Good

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

I made a promise to myself this year to take care of me. One of the things I do for myself is go to the beauty salon. I hadn't been to one in 5 years. My hair had broken off terribly, I'd just throw on a hat or a wig and keep it movin'. I've been going about every 2 weeks, since January. I had to get it cut short in order to get rid of some of the damage. Ouch!!! That was a hard one for me, but it looks good and it feels healthy and that's what I want for my life and my body. It's growing pretty fast and I get a lot of compliments on it. The funny thing is that the people I've met over the past few years, who have never seen my hair, either don't recognize me right away or are amazed that I look so different.

Actually just the act of doing something for myself gives me more confidence to do and try other things. When I walk out of the salon I feel like a new person.

    WoW, that is wonderful...Good for you!!! Some times as women we forget to take care of ourselves between work (or job hunting in my case) and kids and spouses and dinner and dishes and all the other things we try to squeeze into a 24 hour period.

You inspired me to think of me, so next week when I am in Los Angeles visiting family I am going to make an appointment for a pedicure for mom and I and have some ME time too. Thank you for your blog!!!

What I am Grateful For

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Today I spent the day relaxing at home-- after I did my cardio of course. I am so grateful for my family, my home, my car and most important my health. I have been diagnosed with a few things that I have to keep an eye on. I feel the symptoms of them but I don't, no, I refuse to let them keep me from exercising and living the best life I can.

Busy Day

Monday, March 01, 2010

I've been out all day, so I'm getting to Sp late. I didn't get to do my regular cardio workout so I counted my steps (10,000). Did you know that walking 10,000 steps a day can lower your blood pressure? I just read that in the quiz lol. emoticon
