I blew my nutrition for today, but refuse to beat myself up for it. I'm determined to do better tomorrow.
I did spend time on the treadmill this morning, and will either do that again tomorrow, or will take a walk outdoors, depending on the weather. My walking buddy has a respiratory infection, so I expect her to rest tomorrow.
Have planned (and am starting work on) a cross stitch bookmark for each of my grandson's teachers as end-of-school year gifts. They are both great teachers and we appreciate them. (We help in their classes, so we've become acquainted with them).
I'm still working on my grandson's afghan, and am knitting a top for myself. What's two more projects?

Seems lots of folks have recently gotten snow, and we may get a wintery mix this morning. UGH!
Now that my complaining is over, let me say that I AM grateful for the moisture, but hope tomorrow will be warmer than today's predicted hi of 45 degrees. The past few days of 60's and near 70 degrees have spoiled me!
Since the weather is not conducive to walking outdoors, I'll get on my treadmill after eating a bit. Must-ent exercise on an empty stomach.
Y'all have a great day.
EVENING UPDATE: well, I'm glad to say that the pronosticaters weren't right. Yes, we got rain, and no, it didn't get warm today, but there was NO wintery mix! Thank you, God.
I DID get on my treadmill, which turned out to be a good idea: while it was sunny this afternoon, the temps didn't rise as far the the mid-40's and there was a stiff wind.
Hoping for (planning on) a healthy weekend.

We've been having a busy week.
Mon and Wed mornings we took cars for state inspection. M-T-W afternoons we volunteered in one grandson's classroom. Tue a.m. we volunteered in the other grandson's class.
On the way home from the car dealer Wed we stopped at Wal-Mart (my DH swears it's my favorite store) and I picked up another pair of bike shorts (I wear them for exercising). I didn't try them on because I wear that size pants. Tried the shorts on when I got home and was surprised (and delighted) to find the waist band was waaaay loose. So, when we went past that Wal-Mart today (ran an errand elsewhere), we stopped in and I exchanged them for the next smaller size. Hurray for spandex!
This evening we attended Josh's (4th gr) Spring music concert. There were 2 schools of 4th graders, and there were instrumental and vocal renditions. Didn't last more than 1 hr, thankfully, but we enjoyed it very much. We sat there and picked out (identified) several of Josh's classmates that we work with.
Tomorrow is laundry day (that's Bob's job) and then grocery shopping. Saturday I donate blood ('x' your fingers that my iron count is hi enuf), then I go to a jewellery party. Whew! What a busy week for us. But it's been a good week, and I'm glad I'm healthy enuf to go and to do all that I do.
BTW, Wal-Mart may be only my second favorite store - vying for 1st place is AC Moore, a craft store.

My sciatica was acting up even before Darby (our pit bull) knocked me down half a dozen stairs the other day. I'm not sure how much is sciatica and how much discomfort is a result of the sliding down the stairs! I've been doing my (PT) exercises for sciatica, and continuing cardio, because I believe that's better than sitting around grousing at the dog. It was my fault I guess, because I know she 'has to' be the first one down the stairs, and I didn't let her go first. sigh. When will I learn.
Ok, enuf feeling sorry for myself. I cleaned the kitten room ( approx 12' x 15") this morning - it took 80 minutes today. Great calorie burning. There are metal cages to clean, multiple litter boxes to sift, food/water bowls to wash and refill and then there's the floor: sweep, then vac, then mop then dry with a bath towel. By the time I get done w/just the floor, I know I've worked a bunch of muscles. I enjoy doing it: I'm giving to the community (it's a no-kill shelter), I'm getting exercise, and I get a kitty fix. Since I'm allergic to them now, I cannot be owned by any. B4 going to the shelter, I take an antihistamine - that gets me thru the exposure just fine.
Have a great day, everyone.
