Woke up bright and early today! Maybe can get some things caught up this morning around the house and then off for the day to find Mom a dress for my nephews wedding in September. Praying we find something today. Been hard to find time to take her. Am finally noticing some weight loss in clothing. Some of my clothing seem baggy...Yipee! Working hard at it but it's been slow.....Making good changes in my life and it's starting to pay off!

Had a great weekend! Had an awesome time with dear friends. They left Tuesday! Their 4 children were a delight! We had a wonderful time catching up with them. It's neat to reacquaint yourselves with old friends and it seems the time and distance hasn't hurt the friendship and you pick back up where you left off. It was a delightful change in our lives from the usual routine. Thank you God for carving out that time in our lives. Exciting things at work...change...my job is changing in a direction I think I will enjoy but a little scary...seems overwhelming...and how can I do all my boss envisions me doing...but I want to move in this direction. It is exciting and challenging. This stage of my life is definitely not boring and coasting to the finish line. It's like my life has taken off...soaring in a jet :) So exercise and taking care of myself is a MUST....Have to work on eating portions and choices....Right now loving my life and the challenges. Need more adventures...time away....but those will come...just got off one what am I thinking????

Have had a great time with company! Our dear friends brought their 4 children and we have really enjoyed ourselves. They are good kids. They range from 5 months to 10 years old. We've hiked and walked the neighborhood. I'm finding it easier to include physical activity with others. Now it's back to work and company will probably leave today! emoticon

So much for the extra workouts this week. Got a phone call that we have company coming in today. Some dear friends with their 4 children...so will be a busy weekend but looking forward to all the fun. Have to remind myself it ok to miss an exercise for the important things in life...family and friends. Will try to include physical activity which should be easy. What a neat opportunity that they want to spend some of their last minute vacation with us.

    That's right, make the situation work for you. With 4 kids I'm sure you can find some "active" things to do.

Enjoy your friends and have a great weekend!

Getting alot more workouts this week. Mom keeps wanting to go work out after work...go figure that one! Last night she asked...can't we go 4 times this week! Working out seems to help her balance and curbs are easier for her. She has also been in good spirits. Exercise raises her endorphins...just like the Dr said. She is also walking most days. Getting her ready for grandson's wedding trip to Houston. She knows she'll have lots of walking in the airport and wedding. Plus makes me work out more in the evening.

    Even if it just for an event, like the wedding, I think she will see the benefits and continue on. Kudos to her for pushing herself (and you for transportation and well while you're there) at this slow-down time in her life!!!!! Kudos to you for taking her and being a great daughter. As you know you won't have her with you forever.
