Back to Routine

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I had a truly amazing visit back home for Easter and truly made the most of it in every way! I visited with friends I had not seen in a long time, took great pictures and well - was off routine and ate so much - I'll be full for a week. I'm thankful to be back to routine today and for the short work week ahead!

I visited with my 3 great nephews - one turns 3 today and the others are around 8months old each (born a week apart). It was also the monthly 'music Jam session' at the park so we got to listen to great music!

I also visited with my friend and her daughter who has cerebal palsy - who will be undergoing major surgery on Wednesday to straighten her spine (which is currently at 90 degrees curvature). I pray all will go well and that she will have a better quality of life afterwards... She is 19 and if she doesn't have the surgery - she would be bed ridden for life and in so much pain. This is a picture of the beautiful Kyla...

Me and my youngest had our hair done up too while visiting - always a great bargain with my haidresser...

I still prefer my curls to the 'straight' look : )

Me and a good friend ... it was great to exchange our exercise routines and health habits.

The weather was beautiful the entire time I was visiting - it was a great time but I was happy to be back home too! Going away makes one appreciate the life at home too.

This week's plan - back to my workouts and healthy eating. Back to my weigh ins on Sunday (up about 5lbs with the visiting).

Looking forward to catching up with everyone!

    I'm also up pounds after my vacation. Time to get back on track. The BLC isn't too far away. That will help.

    Hi Lady! Glad you had a good trip home. Glad you had a good visit with friends and family.

    We have company this week. Boy I have overeaten and am feeling it this AM. Enjoying time with friends but I'm wearing down. But the good side is I'm still up and exercising each AM
