Weather is stormy. But thanks to the Rise and Shine SP Challenge, I was up early, walked a mile and didn't need my umbrella, and had my healthy breakfast of Eggs 'N' Oats, and Blueberries, flaxseed, and yogurt. Hopefully I can get into the pool between oncologist appointment and the next storm blowing through. My best prediction is between 11:45 and 1:15, but it all falls apart before and after that.
I think Jane Fonda and I will cement our DVD relationship.

7 A.M. and I've walked, said hello to the sunrise, and made breakfast, eaten, and packed healthy fiber filled snacks for the road trip to Sarasota, and tracked all of that.
To break my fast, I used Rachel_Mac's Eggs 'n' Oats recipe as my jumping off place. I substituted multigrain hot cereal for the Oats. To start my day off with anti-angiogenic foods, I added 3 cloves of roasted garlic and 2 pieces of sundried (without olive oil) tomatoes chopped fine, and served with cherries topped with TJ roasted flaxseed with dried blueberries.
Scrumptious way to Rise N Shine!
Edit in reply to Noraspat's question: This was a Spark People Challenge with no team associated with it. We are just to report daily on Face book, but the alternative was to report in our blog. The original post was in a Best of SparkPeople E-mail: Wake Up to Our Motivating April Challenge that was sent 3/30/2013.

Yesterday, someone shared they took their thyroid meds when they wake up in the middle of the night. Well, last night I did leave the water and pill on the bedside stand. And I DID wake up in the middle of the night, and I did remember to take the pill.
So that problem is gone. Am I still going to rise and shine for April? Yep.
I would have gone up to the pool at 6 a.m. if it had been open. Unfortunately, I don't feel capable of jumping the 8 foot fence.
So heavy spring cleaning took over this morning. And the pool will win late this afternoon as the sun sinks behind the clubhouse.
And to get out of the rut, I'm planning the Jane Fonda DVD for today.
Some say I look like her.
In my dreams.

The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having to go to faculty meetings. . . No that's kind of stupid.
The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having to grade papers after supper and then call parents.
No, you'd know in a heartbeat THAT was spoken by a teacher who NEEDED to retire.
Okay, the hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having the summers off. Yes, I know I have everything off, but hey . . .
The hardest part about retiring from teaching is NOT having a bunch of kids to fool on April Fool's Day!!
