    Every Sunday is spent with my mom and unless I am out of town or she is in the hospital. Since dad passed away 5 years ago, it's the only place I want to be. My poetry and couponing is what relaxes me. Donna

    Thanks! Hope you can relax or do whatever recharges you too!

I'd like to just relax today. But need to get some exercise in - it's raining again - so it'll be Leslie and me later!

    I chose to send the grandkids home so I COULD relax. LOL LOL

But, I surely did enjoy them this weekend. Grammy's not used to all the swinging on the swing set, running after the little one, and fishin' with the big one.
In other words......I was a kid again.

Great Friends Make the World Go Round!

Friday, May 20, 2011

THANK YOU all for making my birthday so special! I feel loved & I'm so grateful to have you all in my life! You truly make my journey here on SparkPeople so wondrous!

Today, I intend to walk for 90 minutes & complete 15 min of strength/stretch w/the stability ball! Gosh darn it! I'll master that thing yet! LOL ( You would not believe how that thing gets away from me sometimes!) Laughing.....

EnJOY a fabulous day & weekend my friends! Remember, it's the choices we make today that will define us tomorrow! Make GOOD choices for your health & wellness! You're worth the effort!

    Happy Belated Birthday!! I have been wondering how you and the stability ball were getting along. One time mine tried to throw me face-first into the floor. LOL I am going to try using it today, but the exercises will have the ball next to a wall.....maybe I will to control it that way!

Have a great weekend.

    I am so glad that you had a wonderful birthday & that your Spark Friends were so supportive to you!

You are really making fitness a part of your daily life! Good for you!
I started using a stability ball for my core strengthening exercises that I do for Physical Therapy. They suggested a ball that is weighted with little lines that really stays put on my floor. Otherwise, I'd be chasing it too, across the house! LOL! So I know what you mean!

Have a super Friday!

You have carried your weight as a friend as well. You continually are supportive and encouraging so it should be me thanking you! I keep thinking you are that the "wind beneath my wings" and not the other way around. Thank you for everything you do and for being so inspiring.

    I have been dying to try Zumba. But it is $10 and up around here. Just not in my budget at this time but I did find some videos on U tube and I have tried to dance along, as long as no one is around to watch me make a fool of myself. Have fun and congrats again on your loss! emoticon emoticon

    You know what I love about you Rose. You do all of the work and give us all of the credit. Whew I'm exhausted.. emoticon I'm so proud of you. Doesn't that make 65 lbs or something like that? I have the Zumba DVD set. It was a birthday present. I've looked at the moves so far. I don't have a lot of space to be actually getting down, but the moves are kinda fun to learn. Keep us posted and "Zumba away" my friend. emoticon Donna
