It has been some days since I blogged. My mind has been busy with the job hunt and family. Not unpleasant, but time consuming and important. I feel good today. I had a great workout at Curves and a nice 20 minute walk with my husband. It is so mild here today that it seems like late March. I feel bad for those who are not enjoying this and enduring difficult weather patterns. Last year we had a bad winter so I appreciate this one! Isn't life about appreciating what we do have? Oh I know I am going to have a good time the rest of the week. I intend to do so!

I am tired and sluggish today. I vow to overcome this feeling and be productive. The cat is purring at my feet and my coffee is cooling off as I read my mail and answer correspondence. Friends are wonderful and it is motivating me to read their entries to get moving this morning! Have a wonderful day.

On Friday it was Elvis' 75th birthday. I listened to two elderly, yes elderly ladies talking about this auspicious occasion. One of the ladies shared how she saw him perform at the local stadium here. She was working for an ad agency at the time and got tickets through work. It was nice to hear her reminisce about what must have been an enviable treat. My older sisters were young teenagers when he was popular and I remember my brother imitating Elvis singing "Jailhouse Rock" or "Hounddog." I thought he did such a great job of impersonating the big star. Now, they are both gone but I can still hear their voices, both young men and it brings a smile to my face.
Elvis rocked so much when he was young that if I tried to imitate him while listening to his CD I bet I could get a good workout! Perhaps one day this week I will do just that.

Had a quiet day today, starting with a nice cup of coffee...read the paper, went to work out and then came home and the grandkids were here while my daughter and hubbie went to a movie. It was a nice time for us. My husband was fixing lunch when I got in the door, (what a sweetie) and then the 4 of us watched a movie. I thought I would do something different when the movie was over so I started a guessing game. I haven't played that in ages and all of us were into it so it was fun. Next I brought out the old Clue game that we got when the girls were younger. Again it was fun because of the inter-action. Now, though I am tired....got to get some sleep.
Happy Weekend all.

I am relaxing after a busy day. I ran a lot of errands and then went to work out at Curves. For a moment I felt like it was a drag and reminded myself why I go there. The results have been good and while we do want instant gratification from exercise, it is essential to focus on every session. I am wearing a new size in jeans and my slacks that came with one of my favorite jackets are no longer tight and I am actually wearing them with the jacket instead of substituting the other pair of black slacks that are actually too big now. That took more than a few sessions to accomplish and as I look back it is with the realization that it took some dedication on my part to get where I am today. I would like to lose another 20 pounds and I feel like that can happen now. I have done this before and know that it can be done. However, I have that same feeling inside now that I didn't have last summer or even just a couple of months ago. It will still be a while yet, but I will continue to work at it. After I finished my work out, I felt great and thankful that I stuck with it. It pays off over time, but the initial reward of feeling energetic is something to celebrate too.
