until our baby girl comes home from school for her spring break. Since sh's been gone we moved her into a new room and redecorated it for her. She's gonna be very surprised but in particular I think she's going to be most happy to see some of her special mementos from her trip to Australia framed and displayed on her new bedroom walls. We're really excited to be able to see her and have her here for a week. We will also be getting our married son and his wife home for a few months while they have a home built. It's going to be a little cramped for them, but we'll find a way to work it out. It's especially exciting as they are expecting their first child (my first grandbaby)around the same time as the house is scheduled to be completed.
Today was an awesome workout! I tweaked my workout this week. Changing up the reps and incorporating some different exercises so my body doesn't get too comfortable with the workout. I felt the workout all afternoon in my muscles and it felt awesome!

Well we finally got the big winter storm. We got over 8 inches last night and I was worried that I couldn't get to the gym or that the spin class wouldn't be held. Forunately my DH very kindly drove me and picked me up and the guy who subs regularly for the regular instructors and is always at the gym, taught the class. It was totally awesome as he had all new music and since he didn't have anyone else but me in class, he didn't "overtalk" and we really pushed it for the entire class. It was really a great workout and lots of fun. Additionally, it made me really proud of myself for not using the snow day as a free pass to skip the gym. Of course I had a little help getting there but would have gone anyway.

Nobody trips over mountains
It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles and you will find you crossed the mountain. Author Unknown
This is particularly appropriate in relation to the the journey to health and fitness. If we continue to take each day and make our way through instead of trying to focus on ow far we have to go, we will be surprised to realize we've reached our goal. Of course we may face challenges and not always handle them in the way we intended, but that doesn't mean we've failed, we just hit one of those pebbles and need to get passed it. SP calls it the two steps forward one step back mentality, but no matter how you say it, the point is to keep picking ourselves up and moving forward no matter what happens along the way.
We may not always believe we can make it to our goals, but we can, we have the ability to do whatever we want to do, we just have to find it within ourselves and utilize it.
Yoga 60 minutes
Once again yoga was heavy on balance poses and we did a lot of lunges and squats, all of which means my legs, which I worked hard on Friday, got worked again...
