Missed a couple of days, but they weren't wasted. Had to work yesterday and was late getting home. Today I got to practice quilting on the new frame. Have a long way to go, but it is great fun. I put a practice top on tonight and will quilt ... Read more
We did our usual Monday things today. Had our family lunch out and took MIL grocery shopping while the housekeeper was here. Got some laundry done, and watched the videos that came with the quilt frame and machine. I forgot to get the tape f... Read more
Santa came back today ...
and put my quilt frame together. I still have to put on the leaders, but they are all ready to go. The screws for the light didn't fit, so gotta wait for replacements. Other than that it is ready to go.

Back in the saddle again.
DH and I got a mountain bike ride in this afternoon. The ground is thawing out and it was mostly a strength workout than a cardio one. The mud just clung to the tires and tried to hold us down. But it was nice to get back on, perhaps tomorr... Read more
Well, the best I can say is I did attempt to do the Boot Camp video today. The stability ball still isn't my friend, and my abs hurt.
But on a lighter note, DH and I had a date today and went to see AVATAR. It was great! I didn't get th... Read more
Back to work.

No Boot Camp today.
What a day. If it could go wrong, it did. If it could break, it did. Had to stay late, so no Boot Camp today. Perhaps I will try to get some extra cardio today. On a brighter note, 3 people asked if I'm losing weight. That made me feel goo... Read more
Short work day
Sunday is usually a quiet day at work, and today was no exception. I got a nice walk in going up one set of stairs, and down the next. Even managed some lunges and squats. We close at 5 instead of 7 on weekends, so got my Boot Camp video in w... Read more
Running late today
Just finished my Boot Camp video. The dips killed me! My shoulder doesn't like this one at all, but did the best I could. I'll feel it tomorrow.... Read more

Getting better every day
Day 4 of boot camp is done. My abs hurt and I have no balance. Gotta work on that, one more thing. It is all part of the journey to a new me, a better me.... Read more
To my dear friends:
My Greatest Prize
It seems as each year ends,
I look back and think of my friends,
What I did right what I did wrong,
Who came into my life and who is gone.
But every year there are those who remain,
Looking only for friendship... Read more
