Golf - renewed determination

Friday, April 20, 2012

emoticon I am embarking on a second season of league play. The second time around is better than year 1. My biggest frustration with golf is finding a partner whose schedule matches mine. I decided to have an alternative plan. I will participate in the casual women's nine on Monday evenings at Manor Golf Course when I cannot find a partner!

I plan to attend a stretching clinic at the Grand Opening of the course tomorrow and take a free golf clinic. I plan to sign up for long game as well as short game clinics.

I am meeting people and hope to find the proper way to play quality golf. I'm hooked on learning how to play. Here's hoping things work out.

I spent much time in prayer today as I sought discernment. I go back to the oral surgeon to find out how well my surgery is healing. One area looks great; the other is somewhat irritated. I am hoping for the best news possible.

I enjoy so many things, but cannot do them all. I am happy to be the president elect of the Berks County Association of School Retirees. I had to move out of the membership chairperson role. I am blessed that I have a wonderful replacement who will do great things.

I missed my personal trainer while she was on vacation, but decided to train with another person. She brought so much to my training. I kept up with her and got great workouts. It was a new venture for me. I will be happy to return to my regular trainer who is also a close personal friend.

I am blessed to have virtual friends as well as dear friends of all ages. So I am reflective and prayerful for this day and ALL the people who touched my life!

    It's nice to have things to keep us busy! Sometimes it's good to change trainers and get new ideas but I can understand the going back to your friend. I would love to go back to my new trainer but he's out of town just far enough to make it difficult. My new one works out great for now. Hope you have a great day and heal well!!

    If your Berks County is in PA, then we are neighbors. I live in CHester County and my husband works in Green Hills. if so then howdy neighbor!!! Good thoughts and prayers that your oral surgery is healing well. I am looking at a possible implant and my daughter who is a dentist wants to do it. She's only been out of her residency a year and has been working for about 8 months...yeah thanks but no thanks. I will let my brother in law do it...he;s been a dentist for 40 years can get the drift. Congrats on being president!!!! emoticon

Day of Hope

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

My week was totally unexpected. Bob went into the emergency room with concerns about back pain and kidney stones on Monday. I called a friend to cancel our golf game to take care of Bob after his return home. We had numerous problems throughout the day on Tuesday. I had two eye doctor appointments on Wednesday. I got good news about my eye health. However I could not use my vision plan.

I felt low and out of control. Then I looked up and saw the most beautiful rainbow. What a sign of hope!

    Glad you at least got some good news. When my emergency type eye problems aren't covered by the vision plan they send it through my health insurance as a specialist and I've never had a problem with them paying.

Sweet tooth tamer

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

I do not keep sweets in the house except for fruits. I will buy frozen yogurt (non fat) and have some when the sweet tooth cannot be ignored. We stopped drinking soda and enjoy drinking water. Soon I will freeze grapes or berries to add to water instead of ice cubes. Then I have small treats of fruit to enjoy.


New Week

Sunday, April 15, 2012

I begin my week on a Sunday. On Sunday morning I go to church. In prayer I let go of the problems that I had. I asked for help for others. I thank God for all my blessings.

I then do some exercise in the afternoon.
Each day I have one cardio class or activities and/or machines or arms.
I write down my meetings, activities, and then make certain I have the proper clothes for each one of us.

    Great planning and execution!! I'm not that good other than the appointments. My bag IS packed for tomorrow's workout, though. Keep up the good work. Prayer does work if we work with it-can't just sit on our duff waiting for Him to do the work, too!
