Good Monday morning beautiful ladies.

It will be a lovely sunny day here by noon with temps near 70* !!!! Woo Hoo !!! I am ready to get back to my normal food routines and make the healthiest choices. It has been a wonderful celebration of my 60th birthday but now it is time to live it not eat it !!!! That's my plan to get this new week started and headed in the right direction.

I hope to see the rest of the W/L results posted and announce the BIGGEST LOSER tonight.

I am still dealing with the problem with my phone. It didn't work all day yesterday (no dial tone) and then late last night it worked ???? I will check on it often before I leave for work and deal with it tonight. I may just have to go buy a new one but I'm trying to determine if it is my phone or the actual line.

Ok ladies let's make it happen today and make good choices.

Hello everyone, ...... Jay it is so good to see you but not so good to hear about Raelene. You know you can count on PLOF to keep her in thought and prayer !!! With all you have had on your plate it's understandable why you have been MIA !!! Take care hon.

We had a nice dinner at Olive Garden and then went to niece Christen's (Rod and Angie's daughter) house for dessert. I didn't stay too long as I am partied out. So I am home with Dusky and Mya relaxing now for the rest of the day. My phone is still not working so when Rod and Angie get home I am gonna test my line with a plug in they have. If it doesn't work then I know it is Verizon's problem and not my phone, if not then I will go buy a new phone :-( That's all there is too it, I gotta have a phone.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday friends.

Happy Easter, everyone,

i am thankful for this time. my sister had surgery for a benign tumor on her right carotid artery Thursday morning in Sacramento CA. we came home Friday am. when we got home R took her pain meds which ended up making her sick. she was so bad i took her to Sparks (30 miles away) to the ER got there at 11pm. at 2am they decided to admit her to the hospital. i left & arrived home at 2:30 am. after driving from Sacto earlier in the day. good thing i had a 2 hour nap. found out Saturday that she had aspirated pneumonia in the left lung. she's better (thank the Lord) and coming home Monday. please pray for her to get well.
and God bless you my friends.
i realized i hadn't touched base in over 2 wks, time just gets away from me.
hugs jay

Happy Easter! I'm happy to be in church to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!

Sorry I'm so sporadic on here. I'm just pushing hard to learn and get established in the insurance business.

I'm right there with you on the tight finances Debi. I'm squeezing the pennies so hard they're begging for mercy right now. Lol. I hope you can get your Internet straightened out.

Happy Easter....

Debigene....no matter how hard I work at home it is a million times better than being abused and used at work. It's my choice here at home....maybe someday I will learn to let things go!! 😁

I had a wonderful sunrise walk...4.68 miles with my sister. Good thing we went when we did...the clouds are rolling in and we are having rain all afternoon. That will put a bit if a damper in the egg hunts but we will still have fun I'm sure.

Have a great day...healthy choices!!

Happy Blessed Easter to all !!!

It is a beautiful morning. I am waiting for the Verizon repair man to show up but glad my PC is working this morning as well as my phone .... crazy ???? I think this may be their way of getting me to upgrade from my DSL to high Speed but I told them unless it's free I won't be upgrading since I can't afford it. Heck I'm barely affording what I have !!! After my bro and SIL return from services this morning we are going to Olive Garden for dinner. Angie was gonna have a dinner but everyone else had other plans so we are just going out. Well my birthday celebrations were not kind to the scale but I am confident I can get those regained pounds off soon. Just need to be more focused in the coming weeks. I can do that !!!

I send the joy of the Easter message to all, enjoy and be grateful for the love and goodness in your life and always remember to pay it forward. Kindness to others is a very important message for all of us to adhere too.

Blessings my friends.

Happy Easter! emoticon

I'm actually just finishing up my Saturday. Was a nice day spent with my younger son. We went to the farmer's market but it was chilly and pouring so we didn't linger and opted for hot tea and a teriyaki bento at one of the many Japanese restaurants near his house. Then we took a trip to Trader Joe's and had very heavy bags to lug back to his place many blocks and several hills away. Stopped at the PAWS cat shelter on the way to visit with some super cute kitties. btw Carol - the pics of your pups on FB are adorable, all 3 are so freaking cute :-)

Anyway, first long bit of walking since hurting my foot 2 weeks ago and it feels OK tonight. I know I would have lit up my Activity Tracker if it hadn't been sitting at home on my dresser! The doctor on Wednesday said to just give it time and didn't think I needed an xray. She commended me on my weight loss and decrease in blood pressure but recommended a cholesterol test since I hadn't had one in 5 years and alas it was quite high. Something to work on, I really don't want to go on another med if I can help it. But if it's a hereditary thing then I will as hardening of the arteries is not something to mess around with.

Tomorrow Sam the eldest says he'll visit and help cook our Easter dinner, unfortunately Joe has to work. We'll see if Sam shows - he's cancelled our plans at the last minute the past couple times. Such is life.

Gold - I haven't heard about haybale gardening, I"ll have to research it. One of the other teams I belong to (Organic, Ethical, Local Eaters & Crunchy People) has some farmers and very experienced gardeners on it - maybe someone there would have insights.

Glad you had lots of great birthday celebrating Debigene! Wishing everyone a very happy Easter.

Good evening everyone.

I was visiting my parents today for 6 hours and when I got home my PC and phone were not working. I had to use my bro phone to contact Verizon to have them check the lines only to find out there was a problem on my line and they need to come here to fix it. I have an appt for tomorrow sometime between 8am -12pm. That thankfully will work for me. I just came back in the house from getting a fro-yo with my SIL and the phone and PC is now working again ????? I am not questioning it and not cancelling the appt either. I want them to take a look at the line anyway.

I had a nice visit with the parentals but it is so very obvious that my mom is getting worse. Her memory is fading quickly from most current issues and she is becoming very accusatory of others, me included !!! I'm trying not to let it bother me but words like "stealing from her" is very hurtful !!! I'm trying. A side from that all was nice enough. I took lunch and we all enjoyed it.

Robec nice to see you here and so glad to hear you are making progress, good for you !!! Please don't hesitate to ask any of us will be glad to be of assistance in anyway we can.

Carol sorry you are working so hard, but I guess it beats being at work huh?

Jay where the heck are you ???????????

Hope you all have a restful evening and will enjoy a beautiful EASTER day tomorrow.

till then ............... sweet dreams

Hope everyone has

Hello ladies...

Ughh..what a day. I went to the gym for Cardio(45 minutes) and ST (45 minutes). I came home and made dog biscuits. Then i did an hour of yard work, and cleaned house. I'm pooped. I am getting up at 5 am tomorrow to go for a sunrise walk with my sister. After that...I'll be cooking. It's going to be a crazy busy weekend. No rest for me!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!!

And a good Saturday to you all. I've been fairly consistent for the last two weeks making good food choices and working out. I'm up a little on the scale this morning but my clothes are fitting the best ever since I can remember. I'm thinking I might be making some muscle with all this exercise and that's the reason for the weight gain.

Went for a swim this morning and I never know how that's going to be. They're all good but some are better workouts. I'm happy it was a great one with good stretching and even some cardio.

I've been a member since August and I'm still getting used to some of the features. I appreciate everyone's positive messages and encouragement and wish you nothing but success in your efforts to be happy and healthy.

Have a great Easter weekend.

Good Saturday morning friends.

Today I am going to spend the day with my mom and dad and then stop at the grocery store on the way home for some essentials. I'm going to take some healthy chicken salad and a green salad with me for our lunch and a few of my chocolate covered fruits. I think they will like that. I want to go thru some old pics mom has too while I'm there.

I want to thank this wonderful group of friends for helping to make my 60th birthday special to me .... you are the BEST !!!!

I hope everyone has some lovely Easter time with family or friends planned for this weekend. Let's just do our best to make the healthiest choices possible with just a few indulgences !!

Make it happen team !!!!

Hi ladies. I just returned home from a surprise outing to a local Winery for a wine tasting afternoon with my friend Karen. What a lovely time we had !!! Then we went out to lunch and enjoyed some greek gyros and lemon chicken soup. She made me chocolate covered strawberries so now I have plenty of fruit, YUM !!!

Think I'll go have some now with a large glass of water while I enjoy the rest of the afternoon with Dusky.

Good Friday friends.

As we go about this day take a moment to pause and reflect.

My friend Karen is picking me up and taking me out for a surprise afternoon. I am very excited about it. I do love surprises !!! My friend Linda gave me one of the Edible Arrangements. It was a tray of fruit cut outs dipped in dark chocolate !!! Just what I wanted !!! DELICIOUS !!!

Carol what a nice thing your sister does by taking on the holiday event to include you !!! I have to say that having Rod and Angie upstairs is such a joy for so many reasons, holidays is just one of them. Have a lovely Easter day !!!

Let's make this day as healthy as possible ladies.

Hello friends.

Thanks for the sweet birthday wishes, you are all the BEST !!!

I spent 1 ans 1/2 hours at the DMV waiting to get my license renewed and after all was said and done it was worth the wait because the pic turned out great !!! I am very pleased with it. I can't do anything about the bags under my eyes tho', LOL !!! I went to Denny's for breakfast with my bro and SIL and they give you a free breakfast on your birthday, so that was a treat !! AND they have good healthy choices to pick from as well...... a win win situation !!! Then I went to Kohls to buy myself a new watch but I didn't see one I liked so I bought a new pair of earrings instead. I'll be going out tonight for dinner with my friend from work. So it has been a great day off enjoying my birthday.

I hope you are all having a very nice day as well.

Good morning ladies. :)

First off.. Happy Birthday Debigene!! woo hoo. You go girl!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome to our newest member. Sorry I should have written down your name but you know who you are! Everyone here Rocks and were happy to have you.. emoticon emoticon

I have not even had time to look for crockpot recipes yet. I have just thrown chicken in there and whatever else I can find in on the shelves..lol so far so good. Perhaps this weekend I will slow down enough to plan better.

Now that I am done studying for my test, I have all sorts of work to do so my week is becoming pretty scheduled while I wait for my actual license to come in from the state.

Everyone have a great day!

Good morning ladies and a Happy THANKFUL Thursday to everyone.

Today I am thankful that I am here and that I am healthy, full of the life and have the Lord to guide me thru each day. It's been 60 years full of lots of stuff that has brought me to this day. I wouldn't change a thing.

I hope you each have a beautiful day and will take a minute to share some kindness with another.

Hello ladies...

Thank you for all the well wishes at work. My "Mean" boss is flying to West Palm Beach Florida tomorrow while we all slave away working. I think a few people are working Saturday but I will tell them NO! LOL I had to go to a 3 hour training class today because my boss put me on a Job Hazard Analysis team which took a lot of time away from my real job...now I am WAY behind. She didn't even ask me...she volunteered me! I am really getting tired of all of this but there is nothing I can do.

I did however...get my lawn mowed. My Sparktracker counted it as a 63 minute walk event. I'm good with that....it is fitness!!

Have a great evening!!

Hi ladies. I see we have a new member !!! ROBEC4175, welcome to the team !!! Hope to see you visiting us and get to know you.

Well my faux Friday (today) was good and now done which I am glad of. I am looking forward to 4 days off.
Last night at dinner my SIL gave me a scrapbook that she put together for me which included lots of baby and childhood pics as well as teen and some adult shots as well. She did a really nice job and it really means a lot to me that she did this. Something I will cherish the rest of my years. No plans tonight my tummy has not felt too good all day so I will rest so I can enjoy my 4 days off.

Gold I just read something from another SP member that does the straw bale gardening and she swears by it since it keeps the ground warm. Also I wanted to tell you that MNDebbie is not a member of this team, but she does lives in MN. Go to her page, I do believe the 2 of you are friends.

That's all I have for now maybe more later.

Hi all,
Carol, sorry you've had to go back to long hours again. It must be extra difficult this time of year with all the yard work you do.
Debigene, glad you had a party with all your friends. Sounds like fun. Tomorrow is the big day , do you have any special plans.? I know you will have fun over the weekend.
Cat, Have you heard of straw bale gardening? I'm all excited about it, but would like to find someone who has tried it..It sounds expensive to begin, but so much easier than what I do now and much easier on a person's back.
Deb, have you found a lot of slow cooker recipes. I'm always looking for them too. I'm only good at a roast with potatoes, carrots and onions and oatmeal, but you can get really tired of those 2 meals quickly.
Sue, how is the selling going. I am not a good sales person. When I was a kid I sold tubes of things to get a harmonica and it took months. That was the last time for me. I'm way to shy.
Merilynn, how are you doing?
Mndebbie, i seem to have lost your contract info, could you send me something so I can get it back?

If I haven't named everyone, I'm sorry. I usually think of the person as soon as I post. so I apologize now before I post.

Good morning friends.

Carol I feel so bad for you hon. I know there isn't but I wish there was something I could do to change that mean boss into a kind and caring boss !!! I don't even know what to suggest. So I will just keep you in my thoughts and prayers so hang in there friend.

My bro and SIL surprised me last night and had invited all my family to dinner. It was very nice.
And dinner was good too. They wanted to make it like a cook out but the rain turned into snow and the temps dropped dramatically. Beautiful sun today but still cold.

Ok gotta run ladies. Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Wednesday. I know I will since this is my Friday !!! Woo Hoo !!!

Good morning.....

I hate getting up at 3am and working long days. I'm beat!! Tonight I have to mow after work.... It's just too much! I'm okay with my 8 hour day schedule and can handle that pretty well with workouts, chores, etc but those extra 2 hours of work and getting up an hour earlier...it's like torture. I don't think my boss has worked a 10 hour day in her life...she's barely there for 8 hours and has no clue how this effects morale! Oh well...there is nothing I can do!

Have a great day....I've gotta cheer up and go into it with a better attitude!!

Later

Hello ladies. ..

All is well here but I'm running late. I have a lot of stuff to do before I retire for the night and I'm pooped! I went to the gym like a good kid! I'll be back in tomorrow morning!

Hello ladies. So nice to see you here.

Debbie, Carol made a new post on the team for recipes and such check it out there maybe a crock pot or 2 recipe there or something else that you might enjoy. Don't hesitate to add anything of your own anytime. SP Recipes def have some good crock pot recipes take a look there too.

Well the cold weather is back in Charm City too. Rain all day today and more to continue tonight with high winds and temps dropping to freezing for the next 2 nights !!! What the heck is going on with the weather ???? Is the Lord trying to tell us something ???? I've never seen such consistent terrible weather in all my years !!!

Cat I hope your Dr appt goes well and that some type of diagnosis and treatment can be given for the pain in your foot.

Good luck getting your new license sooner than expected Deb.

Gold hope you had a good day with your friends and glad you are feeling better now. Please stay safe in the snow. I am still just practicing my knitting - nothing in the works yet as far as a project cause I am still making too many mistakes to start something. But I'll get there.

My brother and SIL are having a birthday dinner for me tonight so I need to get finished SPARKING so I can go up. I'm starving too !!!

Have a nice evening my dear friends.

Terrific Tuesday everyone!

Gold - glad you're feeling better and got your computer back. Carol - too bad about your job, your management people aren't very compassionate. I hope they return to your 8 hour schedule soon - especially with 2 day weekends. I barely make it through with 3 day weekends (boo hoo I know).

Debigene - one really interesting thing about Tomi and Seiko's family is that their family home was in Hood River Oregon when the Japanese were put into internment camps during WWII. They have some amazing pictures of them standing on the steps of their bunk house which they shared with many other families for several years. Very sad though that their mother passed away suddenly while they were there. When they returned to Hood River some well meaning neighbors had saved their farm and orchard for them - many had their property confiscated.

I just came back from our sunny lunchroom where I enjoyed delicious leftover spinach quiche from last night. I have a every two year "women's" check up tomorrow - and I'll have her look at my foot too as I'm still limping - hope the quiche didn't raise my cholesterol!!!

Ciao for now!
Cat

Hello everyone. I finally am feeling better and I have my computer back! That makes for an exciting day. It is good to see so many of us here.

I don't have much to say right now, Getting ready to meet friends for breakfast. We are going to get 4 to 6 inches of snow on Wednesday. It is cold and windy here. I have been beading more just to take my mind off the weather.

Debigene, how is the Knitting going?

Good morning ladies.

No I did not see the moon so will have to look at some pics. I was in bed at 10:30. I feel rested this morning. It is raining now and suppose to be a rainy day. So will just make the best of things as the day goes on.

Hope everyone has the best possible day you can have and that you make all the best choices available to you.

Good morning....

Did you see the blood moon....it was pretty awesome. Heck I had to get up anyway. I had a beautiful view from my living room picture window. It is a nice crisp clear morning.

Well....I will be in very late tonight. I'm going to the the gym. I may not have enough time or energy to Spark properly. We will see!

Have a great day!

Good evening ladies.

Well I think I have got everyone's results for the W/L challenge and it looks like Susan is our new BIGGEST LOSER !!! Welcome back to the challenge Susan and from your last post you were 186 and now 183 makes you 3 pounds less !!! CONGRATS on being a BIG LOSER this week and a BIG WINNER to us !!!

Please remember to give Susan a welcome back winning GOODIE !!!

Cat the ceremony for Tomi sounded lovely. Thanks for sharing the details with us. The was a Japanese Festival here this past Sunday and my friend who is 82 and a very active member of the state's Ladies Auxiliary here attended that and I can't wait to hear all about it. She has such interesting stories to tell of her life in Japan during the bombing and how she got out of the country after the lost of her parents as victims. I could listen to her for hours. I also hope your foot is better soon, maybe you should have it looked at in case it's something serious and needs attention.

Carol sorry to hear about your hours changing again !!! Boy they really like to jerk you all around there don't they. But like you said you have a job !!! With their history you can look forward to it changing again I guess huh ? Hope that snow and cold weather withers away soon hon.

Deb I don't think I congratulated you on passing your test. Best of luck to you on the remaining part so you and Susan can start making a new living soon. Hang in there hon, you can do it !!!

So nice to see you back Susan !!!

Hope everyone had a good day. and will have a relaxing evening. I am done !!!

Good afternoon ladies.

Carol.. Snowing..LOL

It has rained quite a bit here but I am still in shorts and a tank top. The humidity keeps it hot.

Been a busy day cleaning house, doing work for the business, cooking etc. Now I am about to go study.. I actually put something in the crockpot today. I think I need to go find some recipes.

Feel free to share if you have some. With our busy schedule, crockpots are about to get real popular around the house.

Hugs from Houston emoticon

Good Monday morning!

It's a beautiful sunny day again - I hate to be stuck inside in my windowless office but I do love that I'm employed!!! I can't believe it's snowing there Carol. And Gold, are you all better now?

Tomi's service yesterday was a very beautiful, VERY Japanese ceremony. I was a full head taller than almost everyone there including the men and I'm only 5'7". It was a strange feeling :-) Tomi's 6 siblings were there from all over the country, I know 4 of the sisters that live here in Seattle so it was good to meet the other 2 including the one brother. Imagine, 6 sisters - he must have had a time growing up. The youngest is a vibrant 70 years old. It was very sad but a celebration as well. The remembrances her family shared of her life were amazing, I wish I'd know some of those things about her before she passed on. The reception afterward was a huge spread of little homemade sugar laden treats. That's all. Oh, plus very strong green tea. They piled my plate full when I only took a couple selections but I was able to pass them off to my friends there. I posted a couple pictures from the garden across the street on my Spark page.

The service did encourage me in my practice and I came home and meditated and set up a little shrine for Tomi. Also did some exercises with the exercise ball but too late in the evening which made it difficult to fall asleep.

Well, enough of my rambling. Thanks for listening and have a beautiful day...
Cat


Anyway, busy work week

Good Monday ladies. Are you ready for another new healthy week?

I know I am and I only have to work 3 days as I took my birthday and Good Friday off. I am spending the day on Thursday with my mom after I go to MVA to get my license renewed. I hope the pic turns out good since the one I have now is pre- weight loss !!!

That's really crazy weather you are having Carol, snow the middle of April, ridiculous !!! Be careful.

Hope everyone has a good day and a great start to a new week. Let's do our best. I now have to work off some added cocktail calories I drank this weekend not to mention the foods I usually don't eat.

Make it happen team !!!

Good Monday morning....

It is currently snowing! What the heck...crazy weather. It was 70 yesterday morning at 6am. We had wind, hail, thunderstorms and now it is snowing! Today's high is 40 I believe. Glad I haven't planted anything outdoors yet....we are having a hard freeze for a couple of days!

Have a great Monday!!

Good evening ladies ....... so nice to see so many here.

I have just read and caught up on all the posts and honestly am way to tired to comment on each tonight. I got home about 6pm and spent time with Linds and thanked her for taking such good care of Dusky ... he even flew to her !!!! SHOCKING !!! Then I spent time with him as well after she left. The beach was lovely Saturday but too windy today. There is nothing like a beautiful day sitting in the sand starring out at the endless Atlantic Ocean, definitely has a way of clearing the mind !!! Laughed so much over the weekend that my cheeks hurt !!! And eat Mexican food Saturday and a buffet breakfast today. Still full !!!

Ok friends thanks again for being here and I need to go to bed early tonight, I'm beat !!!

sweet dreams !!!

Hi team,

Just stopping in quickly - nice to see you all! Enjoyed some buckwheat pancakes with lingonberries this morning after a good morning stretching session. Still working on the foot. I'll weigh in tomorrow morning - totally forgot it before eating breakfast..

I'm leaving in a minute for Tomi's memorial service, Victoria and Marcy are coming by to fetch me. I did some reading up on Shinto funerals this morning, different than Buddhist but definitely related. It's a beautiful Spring day here, all the flowers in bloom, birds chirping, white fluffy clouds and blue sky. Mid 60s. A fitting day to say goodby to a beautiful woman.

Cheers,
Cat

Good morning all;

It's great to see you back Sue and Debbie too. Life should not be so hard for older women to find and hold good paying jobs. My thoughts and prayers are with you two.

It's another gray day here, We have a hard freeze most nights, but it gets over freezing during the day. We are getting up to 44 today.

I wanted to purchase my straw bales for the gardens today, but when it is this gray I don't feel as so eager to go outside.

Have a great day and hang in there.

Good Morning ladies,

I've missed you all. I've been so focused on trying to make a living, I just haven't taken time for hardly anything else. I have to leave for church, but I had a minute and wanted to say hello and that I haven't fallen off the world :-). I hope to catch up later.

Susan

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Thank you all for popping in and encouraging each other. That's what I love about this team...genuine friendships!!

Gold.....the weather .....okay!! It's current!y 69 degrees at 6am. Monday night we have a hard freeze warning and it is supposed to snow. SURPRISE! I can't help but wonder what your weather will be up north. Crazy!!!! Today we are having thunderstorms. 😨

HI Ladies..

Gold to answer your question, We are on the pastoral staff of our new church and currently I am working on creating two new websites for them in my spare time..lol. I have been pretty busy this week with a balance of study, church web work, paid web work and enjoying the sunshine.

Today we both worked a couple hours this morning and then spent a nice lazy day together and Susan made her black bean with cilantro soup. yummy. Now it is time to go back to learning about all the life insurance products.

I love the weather here.. Hope everyone is having a great weekend~

Deb, congratz on passing your test. Are you doing church work today? I'm still taking it a little easy. I made taco soup and have washed 2 loads of clothes and that is about my limit toay.

Carol, it is so nice that you and your sister can work out together. Sounds like your weather I much better than ours. It's a very overcast day, but at least it is not freezing.

Merilynn, how are you doing? Do you get out and about more now that you have some wheels?

Cat, have you ever tried straw bale gardening. I am trying to find someone or get the book about it. Our ground is still frozen. I have raised garden beds, but they are not real high, so I would like to try Bales on top of the raised beds. They say no weeding!

Have to go Debigene I hope you are having a great time.

Happy Saturday!

Aren't we so lucky to have TWO such fabulous team leaders??

Did my fitness in the yard yesterday clearing old growth and digging up hundreds of dandelions! Today going to the Seattle Spring Pow wow and tomorrow is Tomi's memorial service at the Japanese Shinto buddhist temple. A very culturally diverse weekend. I'm lucky to live in such a place.

Made a crockpot full of the cabbage and vegetable beef soup yesterday and had a fantastic 1.5 hour phone conversation with my oldest. I think that is the single longest uninterrupted adult conversation we've ever had. Life is good!!!

Congrats on passing your test Debbie.

Hello ladies.....

Yes....I will need lots if help from everyone to keep this team going over the weekend!!!! LOL I will do my best!! 😝. Debigene...I think your shoes are a really big to try and fill!!

I had a great walk this afternoon with my sister. We walked 4 miles and had a nice chat!! I think working out with my sister is bringing us closer together! It had been really nice!!

So...what are everyone's plans for the weekend. I have to do some cleaning for sure. I have been working outdoors and neglecting the house cleaning. This weekend...no working outdoors because the rain is coming. I'll work on the inside on Saturday and go to the gym on Sunday!!

Have a good evening!!

Good morning and a Happy Healthy Fabulous Fantastic Friday to everyone !!!

I am so happy to see this day get here that no matter what today brings my way I will make it a FABULOUS day !!! I hope you all do the same and will make the best healthy choices and move our bodies as best we can.

I do not think I will be able to get here after this post until I return on Sunday evening. So Carol the team lead is up to you till then hon, but I'm sure the rest of the team will pitch in too. This means I will not be able to chart our W/L results until Monday so I hope everyone will be able to get their results in no later than Monday morning ok.

Have a good one ladies, make it happen !!!

Hello ladies....

I'm up early and ready to go. On Fridays we always go in early and get off early. It's a bit of a reward. I'm not working this weekend either. 🙌

After work my sister is coming over and we are going for a fitness walk!! She has never been on the nature path for a walk! Crazy....its right by my house and she only lives a fourth of a mile away from me. I'm really trying to help her out.....she is not overweight but has no muscle in her body! I think she is shocked at how much muscle I have and how fit I am for 58. She is a lot like me....always been athletic and enjoyed fitness\sports but she has had 2 knee replacements! She is doing great and it gives us a chance to spend time together!

Have a great day....talk to you later!!

Carol

HI Ladies.

I totally forgot to login yesterday..lol
I passed my state insurance exam today. Glad that is over, now it is time to learn all over again and actually apply for my license so hopefully in about 2-3 weeks max I will be ready to start selling.

Still getting my voice back, almost there..

Hugs..

Deb
