My brother's 50th birthday party was yesterday, a surprise party, and as soon as I got my exercises done, we headed out to help decorate for it, and by the time I got back, it was late and I totally forgot to post on my blog.
BUT I'm here again and have been working on upping my "walking" exercises to a good 3 times a week, instead of once or twice. I've even looked at several other videos, but I'm not too sure I'd last very long, still...it's tempting, I may try them soon.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, I'm planning on it, and remember your Goals!!

I'm getting so frustrated with my mouse, sometimes it won't work, other times it will and I can do absolutely nothing when it's not working. Why don't they make it so you don't need a mouse to use your computer? And it's not the mouse either, because it happened when I got a new mouse which was on my daughter's computer, so I don't know what's going on, but it's driving me NUTS.
Anyway, back to things at hand, it's a nice day out today, now if only all the snow would melt and I could go out walking and not worry about getting splashed with the water, but since I can't it's back to the videos. I have been doing the mile walk in 15 minutes, a brisk walk, which really works your body. But I'm loving it. I've been doing that 3x week, along with the other 3 videos I do every day. I'm ahead of my monthly goal each month which is great!
I hope you all have a great day and find something each morning to smile about, it'll bring a bit of light into your darkest days!

I hate feeling guilty for not making a post on a day, and I missed yesterday's post. Not sure why, I would have swore I'd posted here but obviously I didn't, now I have the guilt for that. Oh well, today's another day..wait...todays' here....ok, so I'm posting.
Does this mean I have to double my post, does it mean I have to stand in the corner for a day....what's the punishment for missing a blog entry. I guess there aren't any, the guilt is enough..so................................
........(insert guilt feelings here).....................................
Ok, that's enough guilt, now back to the fun stuff..Today is a Dancercize day, we get to dance when we feel it and do it with joy in our hearts, in every step of our path towards our goals. never stop smiling, never stop hoping, never stop trying, no matter the barriers, and we'll get there.
We may take a step back once in a while, we may stumble, but everything we do has obstacles. We must make the choice; do we let them stop us from what we want the most, or do we find a way around/over/under/through them to get that which will bring us happiness.
I don't know about you, but for me I do anything and everything to get to that goal and I never stop. I know I'll stumble, I know I'll fall once in a while, it's expected, but from everyone of those falls I become stronger...and so do you!
Think about it..if you fall you use the strength you have to get right back up, then you look back and try to think of a way to not let it happen again. Strength comes in many forms, and no matter what, you gain strength from EVERY fall!
I hope you all have a GREAT weekend, and dance yourself around the planet and back getting stronger and more confident in yourself with every step!

Yep, another word for the day...why? Because it's darn cold outside!! I took my daughters golden outside and I nearly froze my nose off, my eyes actually HURT so much I had to pull my hood over them and zip my coat up over my chin so barely any skin was showing. I couldn't believe the wind was blowing that hard!! (we're out in the country). Currently it's 19, but I don't know what the windchill is, normally 20 wouldn't bother me one bit, but wow.
So, got my exercising in, walked the mile fast today, 12 minutes, so I'm feeling good, and I'm sooo tired, not sure why, but think I may lay down for a little bit and sleep.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day, and get out there and COLDERCISE, it'll warm you up for these cold days!!

The signs are all around us, I was reading the blog of another friend from here, on who shares something with me and I got to thinking of how much not only the two of us share, but I'm sure others share with us..the loss of someone we love. This loss (of my Father) is my inspiration for wanting to relose the weight I'd gained while my Father was ill and in the hospital, and I've had so many signs from him since his passing last year, I can't even mention them all without taking a lifetime to do it.
I'd asked him to show me a bluebird in the winter as he died, and less than a week later, I saw one..it was on one sympathy card, that I opened, not my mom, not my siblings, but me...and the only card with a bluebird on it! My Dad did as I asked, I got my bluebird in Winter and he sent it to me, in his way.
Since then I've seen so many more bluebirds than I ever have in my entire life, our yard was filled with them last year, and when I'd go out to get the mail there was always a bluebird sitting on the wire above the mailbox. We had every birdhouse filled with bluebirds, 3 houses, which had never happened. We'd been lucky to have one with bluebirds, but we had 3 sets of bluebirds, and then after they'd hatched, we'd had bluebirds sitting in the trees, on the clotheslines, all over.
Our daughter even saw them at her boyfriend's house, a place they'd never saw them EVER before. And Sunflowers, everywhere I walked into, I saw Sunflowers, my Dad's favorite flower, and I've heard "Piano Man", his favorite song, so many more times this year than ever before.
So no one can tell me there isn't life after death and that God doesn't exist..I know He does, and I know that my Dad is there waiting for us and watching over. And I know my Spark Friend's Mom is there, and all who've passed before us, are now enjoying a life well deserving them.
Life here is good, but life there is wonderful and I will enjoy my time here while I have it..and never stop celebrating in every way I can. Have a beautiful day!
