Today would have been my Moma's 81st birthday here on earth, but she is now living large with our Lord and Savior, so I know she is having a beautiful birthday bash. i sung Happy Birthday to her and commemorated her day by having some fun of my own, continuing to map out my future. I hung out tough and deep Friday, first by getting my cardio in and looking at potential property. Came home, changed real quick and went out in the afternoon for some real big girl Friday night fun. I visited one of Kansas City's museums taking in the sights of the Titanic artifacts. I walked around Crown Center looking at all the interesting shops and then saw a play that evening extolling the virtues of Bingo. My date and I had a blast since we both went to Catholic schools.
Came home and crashed into bed, seeing how I got off work Friday morning at 7:00 am and went non-stop all day long. It was my greatest intention to get up and meet with the Kansas City Black girls run group, but I didn't hear my alarm for the 6:00 am workout run/walk and I have been suffering from killer cramps in my legs, left and thighs. My girlfriend told me I needed some potassium, so off to Walmart or Walgreens to get some, along with some bananas. I made it to a great weight watchers meeting, that had some excellent tips for doing it anyways and another scale victory
A small one, but I will take it and refocus on my portion control. My WW leader suggested having a scale helps keep the confusion down and since it was on sale, I picked on up. I headed over to one of my favorite breakfast nooks and meet with my other girlies for brunch. We usually get together every four months so it was nice catching up and chatting with them. I dashed across town to meet up with another girlfriend and we attended a small hair show that gave me some valuable tips on getting some stretch and moisture to my hair. So well worth it and they handed out a great goody bag!
Lisa and I went to lunch and got some home decorating ideas from Gordman's. I was keeping busy and glad not to take part in the tax free weekend. I am refocusing my own personal agenda with a heavy concentration on my health, getting my weight down, controlling my blood pressure and cholesterol, finding a permanent affordable home for me and the poodles
Happy Birthday in Heaven Moma!
