Yesterday was so nice that when I took Phred out for a walk at around 12pm it was almost 80 degrees. Last night was so mild that I almost didn't need a jacket when I went out to dinner and a movie with my friend Irene.
Irene and I went to see "The Black Swan", spoiler is coming if you plan on seeing this movie, not for the faint of heart or really for those under 16 due to graphic girl on girl sex scene and language. I still haven't decided if I liked this movie or not, if is so strange and weird. Natalie Portman was very good in the role as Nina and as she goes crazy, one could see why she won the Academy award for Best Actress.
We went to dinner at a local Italian restaurant that was featured on some cable show, but she and her family have been going at least once a week for 30 years.
It was very good and the portions are so large that we split both the salad and entrée'.
Today was very nice in the morning and I once again opened all the windows, like yesterday. I watched the beginning and ending of NASCAR, as I went to do the marketing in between. I did a 5 mile LS/DVD and took Phred for a 30 min. walk. The weather started to chance while we were out and it was pretty cool by the time we got back. It is starting to rain already and will much cooler again at least for a few days. Hope we get a warmer spring.
DH is working everyday until he leaves to work in Chicago on March 15 and he will return on the 25th. I don't know what type of trade show this is, but this is the first time his company has done a show there. I hope he has a good time and it isn't too cold for him. He is the whimpy kid who hates the weather to get under 68 degrees. LOL

Today I have started back full time on site. The last 6 weeks or so have not been the best for me. I am 99% recovered from my injury and glad to be able to do a lot of cardio again. I still can't lift over a pound with the right arm without pain, so I will take it slow in the strength area.
I have been watching what I eat for the last week or so, but not tracking online. I had started doing cardio about 4 weeks ago, but it was rather painful. Today I did a 5 mile LS/WATP dvd and walked Phred the Wonder Dog for 38 min. This is the first day since the fall that I have taken him on a walk by myself. My son was walking him for me and I would tag along. These were mostly short walks but hey my son is in college and has a life, too. So I was very grateful to him for his help.
I hope to get to my goal weight b/4 my new end date in June. I will working hard at doing this. I wanted to start back at the gym but gas prices are so high now that I can't afford to drive there everyday or so. My membership will end in Nov. and I will not be signing up again with 24Hrs. I haven't been in about 5 or 6 months just because I have been so unhappy with the gym. It is never clean, machines are always broken and every time I start on a roll I get sick. I want to join the Planet Fitness that is within walking distance from my home. So even with my current membership all paid up, I will make the switch to the closer gym to my home. Planet Fitness was a 24Hrs when I joined but the location closed 6 weeks after I signed up. PF moved into the old 24Hrs after 9 months. Had I known this, I would have signed only a year contract with 24Hrs so I could switch to the closer gym. I will go with the more expensive membership because I can bring unlimited guests (my son and a number of friends would have to go with me), get 1/2 price drinks, use of the massage chairs for free and if I was into it, unlimited tanning booth access. It is a very clean place and the price is right with a special they have running.
OK enough about the gym. I am determined to get back on track and look forward to reaching my goal very soon.
