What Did I Do Today!?

Well - it was so nice this weekend weather-wise and my dd was gone the whole time - she spent the night on Friday at a school friends' house and then Saturday she was home for maybe an hour and one of her church friends' called and she was gone... she went to church with Dave while I was at the See Spot Run 5K (* I updated my SparkBlog and wrote about the race), came home for a minute and went to another friends' for a BBQ... so when she called around 6ish and asked if her friend could spend the night and if I could just take them both to school in the morning - I lost my mind and said yes! LOL! It was actually great... but I blame it on the weather that made me feel like it was summertime?!

Anyway this morning I took both girls to school, and since it's Monday I then headed out to get groceries. After that I had my Bible Study and after picking up my dd, I got a good workout in using a DVD... I am still testing this Heart Rate Monitor... I plan on walking tomorrow to see if I can try more to stay in the Fat Burning Zone... I seem to like the higher end of the Cardio Zone the most... even up into the Endurance Zone... but I am assuming that the zone I should be shooting for is the Fat Burning Zone?!

Anyway - after my workout I made a delicious dinner... Kim (Kini08) posted it and it is called Turkey and Spinach Manicotti I think! Wow - it is delicious! My only complaint is that there are only two left... it serves 4 but we are a family of 3 - so now everyone is gonna be fighting to have it for lunch tomorrow!? YUM!

So... that's what I did... what did YOU do today!?

Well, since my day was so similar to Karri's, I'll just say ditto to all that! Wonderful day with a good friend, topped off with a long walk with another good friend. I'm blessed beyond measure in that department. Also, stuck to my eating plan, even when a "friend" ordered white chocolate raspberry cheesecake from Olive Garden! Only two small bites. Unbelievably creamy, totally smooth ... enough of that!

Love to hear about some others' days! Post here so we can keep up with you!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - I decided to do my Grocery Shopping BEFORE my morning meeting, so I could take advantage of the gorgeous weather for a workout in the afternoon! So - I got the food thing taken care of, got ready for my group - and had a great time over coffee with amazing friends... we went out to lunch to celebrate one of the gals' birthdays and then I took a few minutes to snap some Spring photo's around the area... I did the carpool Mom thing and then went for a nice long walk/jog to enjoy the sun... got home and my dd was soaking up some rays and I decided to join her a bit! My dh made dinner and we had my parents over for that... and it's just been relaxing (with the doors OPEN!?) for the rest of the evening!!! Nice!!!

So... what did YOU do today!?

I drove home from Everett this afternoon - and sure glad to reach the sunshine. The wind, not so thrilling. Hope it's a still day tomorrow!

Ooooh, and tonight, it's a crab, shrimp and lasagne feed with good friends. Is there anything better than great friends, good food and sweet fellowship? I doubt it!

Looking forward to a long run and good walk tomorrow. Can't wait!

Best wishes on your contract negotiation, Karri. Those things can be tricky!

Looking forward to visiting with you all tomorrow!

What Did I Do Today!? (What Did I Do All Week!? LOL?!) Where did it even go!? I guess a bit of sunshine will do that to me?!

I have been in Contract negotiations with company and I am hoping it will all work out but I am trying to learn new software and try to edit the contract and it has been rather draining and frustrating this week!

I have had some great workouts, and I've been within my ranges - so that is great - especially after taking three days off in a row last week! I am about 2 pounds away from reaching 75 pounds gone and my reward for reaching that number is going to be to purchase a Heart Rate Monitor! Do any of you have one?! If so - what kind?! I am clueless - but another Spark friend mentioned that she kept hitting plateaus and once she got her heart rate monitor - she was able to see what she was really burning, and adjusted her caloric intake and is back to losing consistently again... so that got me to wondering if I am entering the right numbers myself?! If I am - great... but if I am not and I can change things up to get better results - then I want to know that part too! Besides... everyone's doing it... LOL! All the Trainers have them and everyone on Biggest Loser wears one - so I figure it must be a good thing - right?! My friend said she got hers at WalMart for $25 - so that is right arounf my price range too!

Anyway - Team Walk tomorrow morning - at 10am at Randall Park... it's open to everyone! Bring friends or family and join us... it should be a gorgeous day for a walk and we hope to meet some new faces!!!

Spark On!
Happy Friday!

Polly,

I'm so glad to hear about your daughter and will keep praying for her. That's wonderful news! She's a trooper to go through all this.

And you're a trooper, too, Polly, for dealing with all this and tax season to boot! May God bless your days and give you some rest at night!

And, Karri, I enjoyed our walk and and conversation, too. It was a big blessing. And me? What did I say to deserve such nice comments? It's you guys who are so inspring and such an encouraging. You are great for including me. I really appreciate you all.

Also, good job Karri on the jog. That's great. I'll go jogging with you any time - you should be able to carry on a conversation while jogging, so ....

As for me, I jogged home (total for the day, five miles of jogging, three of walking), then went for a 20-mile bikeride with a friend (after refueling, of course). Now, out to dinner with oldest daughter, grandson, son, and inlaws! Looking forward to it. I'm not hungry, truthfully. I'm a little shaky. I overdid it just a tad, maybe? But, it's a major calorie burn day for me, and I don't have those often, so I'll take it!

Praying for you and her Polly - thanks for keeping us updated!!! We will pray for complete healing of that bone - with no surgery at all, preferrably! Dave broke his finger a few years ago - and they said he may need surgery - but he never did... it was a scary break for my Guitar Hero - but even with it being quite a bit shorter now - he still plays great! Keep us posted! Good that she scored some clothes out of it too - I am sure that helped!!!

What Did I Do Today?! Well - we had our Team Walk this morning at Randall - wow - what a gorgeous day! We had a nice walk and got to visit with a few Sparkers along the way. Dori - wow - you are an inspiration... I even came home from our walk and jogged a mile with Millie - my treadmill! I had intended on jogging a bit - but I was enjoying our pace and conversation too much. Plus - I think at this point, what I call jogging is really just fast walking for most people?! Still - I got a 14 minute mile in at home!

Enjoy this gorgeous day, Team Yakima!
Spark On!

Yesterday (Friday) I took my daughter over to Seattle to Children's hospital to get her arm checked out. It was a long day but it was a great experience. Good news is that they think the alignment is okay. They put her in a cast and we will return in 2 weeks for them to re evaluate her (after the 15th yea.) Still could potentially need surgery if the crack extends down instead of just across. It doesn't appear to crack down at this point but they said it often doesn't appear for about 3 weeks. We bought her some new short sleeve shirts she can fit over the cast so she was a happy camper.
So now 11 days to go til the end of tax season!

I ran six miles today in about an hour - my first time running past four miles. It was exhilerating (and long) and boy, I was dying of thirst at the 5-mile mark. Fortunately, that's the exact spot where my hairdresser lives, and when I knocked on her door she said, "You need water, huh?" and grabbed me a water bottle. I quickly finished that off and threw it away (garbage cans were out toay). I drank two water bottles after I got home, and a large glass at lunch. I have yet to use the bathroom. I think you sweat a lot more running six miles than you do three!

Anyway, it was great. I'll walk three miles tonight with a friend, try to jog another six again tomorrow and bike 20 miles tomorrow afternoon. I love being outdoors!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - after enjoying our first official day of Spring Break (which included sleeping in and skipping my workout?!) I worked my butt off today! I did Coach Nicole's Cardio workout for 60 minutes and then did a sculpting cardio workout for 30 minutes... and did my strength training too! Whew?! I felt great - but a few hours later and I can feel my neck tense and am needing a massage tonight I think!

So - anyway, that is mostly what I did today... that and hang out with my kiddo again. She is such great entertainment!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - Kim (Kini08) and I went for our walk - but added a bit of jogging in the mix... that was nice and amazing considering that a year ago neither one of us would have EVER considered doing that at all?! I can see us gradually adding more and more jogging to our normal routes! How exciting!!!

Then we came home and had some Wii fun before picking up my dd from school. We registered her (yesterday) for her classes next year - all Honors classes (again)... hopefully it will not be too much of a load on her - the teachers don't seem to be concerned, but they don't have to deal with the stress level of homework at night?! She's done pretty well this year - with the exception of 1st Trimester Honors Math! I just can't believe how fast time is flying...

Anyway - off to cut up some fresh fruit and enjoy some quiet time!

So - what about YOU!? What did YOU do today?!

Thanks Kar... if my legs are speaking to me by tomorrow morning, then yeah, we can add some jogging in... My thighs are angry-sore today! I was going to do the canyon loop hike again with Dad today but was so sore that we decided to just hike across the top.

See you tomorrow morning!

Great job Kim! I went on our 'regular' walk today and ended up going all the way to 56th and down to Summitview - which puts it at almost 3.5 miles - and I didn't jog any - but I did do it in 57 minutes... need to add some of that jogging outdoors soon myself... maybe we can do it a bit on Thursday!? We'll see!?

Love ya!

I hiked the canyon loop trail with Dad today - [It's finally starting to dry out on the down-slope today - 1st time I wasn't afraid I'd fall on my butt in the MUD].
Then came home starving and cooked lunch, and then off to get a coffee and then back to work at gathering my mess of tax info - I HATE the business side of business and can't wait until it's behind me for another year. Lol

That's how I spent the remainder of my day.
Hope you all had a better one!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - my dd has 1/2 days all week - so this alters my routine greatly this week - but I am not complaining! I get to hang out with my little one (who is not so little anymore?!) So - today - I dropped her off and hit the grocery store instead of working out (which is my normal routine?!) Then I got back, unpacked, and did a few things around the house and it was time to go pick her up! We got home and my gals who meet with me on Monday mornings came an hour later and we got to meet and go over our chapter... had a great visit! Suzanne brought me a few pairs of jeans and capri's that she has undergrown thanks to Sparks and all her hard work! Two of the three pairs were a size smaller than what I wear now - or so I thought?! I was thrilled to have them fit! One pair is a bit snug - but I can put them on, zip them up, and still breath! Nice!!!

After my meeting I had a late lunch and relaxed with Kaye for a bit, did some laundry and worked out with Coach Nicole! Now - it's on to dinner and a bit more relaxing as a family...

Hope you all had a great Monday... let us know what YOU did today!

Hey... that is great that you figured that out! LOL! Remember when I did that several months ago and it said something crazy like the calorie range was between 1700 - 2200 or something nuts?! Yeah - mine was such a drastic change, I think I only left it that way for one day... it just felt wrong?! LOL!? Glad you got it figured out!

My Goal Date is around July 1st... that will be a 100 pound mark - but with the last plateau, I am not sure if I will make that - but we'll see! At least you know that yours is not way off now...

What Did I Do Today!?

Well - I enjoyed a morning?! LOL?! As in, I relaxed, read a bit, watched a little news, and dinked around on the computer for a bit before doing my aerobics dvd and then running a few errands... I grabbed lunch and picked up the girls from school. I ordered some photo's for my scrapbook night tomorrow night, and bought some much needed new luggage (which just makes our DC trip that much more real to me now! Yay!)... then I came home and did a 30 minute Total Body workout/Strength Training DVD... now we are lookin' at left overs for dinner, a bit of down time, and some American Idol tonight too... nice!

What About You guys?! What Did YOU Do Today?!

PS - Any Team Members who are into Scrapbooking - I host a monthly Crop once a month from 6-9pm... I'd love to have you join me... if interested - just let me know and I will get the info to ya!

Hiked the canyon loop trail with Dad - the down-slope is still a bit slippery from mud but we managed to stay upright.

The best thing I did today though... I had a big "well DUH!" moment...
I just discovered that -- I -- inadvertently caused my own plateau when I manually adjusted my weekly caloric burn goal to account for the addition of hiking back onto my exercise rotation.

Sparkpeople showed me the red 'warning' text telling me that I'd burned way more calories than I'd planned for and told me my calories wouldn't be auto-adjusted for this, so I clicked the link they provided to manually input the calories I planned to burn each week and that raised my caloric budget.

However, as my final goal date of 3/26 was fast approaching and I'm far from that 100 lb goal, I decided I should move that goal date back. I tried to change it to May 31st and got a warning that in order to lose the remaining weight by that date, I'd have to burn just under 5 lbs a week and Sparkpeople recommends no more than 2 lbs/week and told me I should push the goal date further back. So I picked 8/29 (my wedding anniversary), and my caloric budget got a lot smaller again - even with 1 day of hiking figured into my caloric burn goal.

So just to warn you - If in this warmer weather, you decide to manually make changes to your caloric burn, be sure to also re-figure your goal date - even if the same - just to make sure you haven't accidentally given yourself a caloric budget for maintenance instead of weight loss!

I'm hoping between the calorie correction and addition of jogging, more hiking and Nia, I'll see the scale start to move much more regularly again.

Hi from very warm and sunny Florida! Our last day here...weather has been in the 80's all week...what a blessing!
Today I went to a 75 minute therapeutic water aerobics class with my sister-in-law...very enjoyable. Did some shopping after. Am going to take a walk soon and look for manatees.
Back to Yakima tomorrow!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - I thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine! What a gorgeous day! I managed to do 90 minutes of cardio using two DVD workouts... and also used my new bands for toning - wow?! Those things work!? After that, I enjoy a quiet day sorting and organizing my scrapbook papers... and chatting online with some Spark Scrap gals!

My dd is spending the night at a friends, and my dh is fishing right now- so I am off to enjoy a bit more quiet time before dinner!

So - what did YOU do today!?

What did I do today?

I work at the hospital from 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (I love my hours). Did a bit of housework while watching Oprah. Made dinner. Relaxed with the family for a bit and then worked out from 6:30 to 8:00. There are just not enough hours in the day!!!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - it's been awhile since I posted on this link... MONDAY I skipped my workout due to a crazy schedule (and putting off the workout all day!? LOL!?) so TUESDAY I really pushed myself and did a 'Last Chance Workout' style workout really putting in 2 hours or intense cardio... by the end I was barely flailing my arms and legs to the aerobics DVD?! LOL!

TODAY I weighed in and finally saw a lower number on the scale... only 1# - but I'll take it! I did an aerobics DVD and then went to meet for a Team Coffee date at Starbucks... grabbed lunch, and now I am off to a 'meeting' with a couple of great friends... we are preparing to go to Ellensburg for a Prayer Breakfast on Saturday! I am hoping to get a bit more cardio in after picking up my dd from school today and relaxing at home tonight!

What about YOU guys?! What did YOU do today?!

Hey it was nice to meet you too at Selah last week.
What did I do (over the weekend)
I did not make the walk on Saturday (I should have, hopefully next time)
I DID walk 6 miles yesterday, my friend and I have decided to do the March of Dimes Walkamerica in April. It is a 6 mile walk to support the March of Dimes.
Our plan is to "PRACTICE" on Sunday's.
I was wondering if I put a Crystal Light Packet in my water does it still count as drinking water?

Well - YESTERDAY I enjoyed a Team Walk at the Mall! It was great to see you Kim and Penny... and to meet your friend Penny! Sorry more couldn't make it - but it was sort of a last minute thing! I suppose next month we may be able to meet OUTSIDE... I prefer that anyway and as long as the weather is a bit warmer - I am up for hitting the great outdoors - (instead of hitting my pocketbook! LOL! I ended up shopping after walking and talking and it will be easier on my budget to walk outside too! Although - I will say - I scored some GREAT deals!) Anyway - today we had a lazy morning and then went off to church... our dd had a friend overnight so they came back after church and hung out here until their meeting tonight... I was able to read a bit this afternoon and I have a Roast in the oven right now... a perfect Sunday dinner to close out the weekend!

So - what about you guys?!

Sorry I missed lunch. It was a crazy day but just not quite what I was planning. My 10 year old son fell on the playground this morning and split his hand open. His dad was able to pick him up and take him to the doc (4 stitches), so I came home at lunch to stay with him. Actually got quite a bit of work done from home. Then went to the gym tonight while older son was at scouts.

What Did I Do Today?

Well - first off - it was nice to hear from you Pauline... I was thinking of ya today and wondering how things are going?!

Secondly - I had a good time with a friend in the morning, and then meet up with a few fellow-Sparkers out in Selah for our Team Lunch! I am so glad you made it Suzanne and Teri... it was nice to meet in person! After that Kim and I visited a bit with our Mom and I had to run pick up my dd. I was able to get a great walk in after that, and enjoy the sunshine before all the clouds rolled in! I even came home and did my ST workout too before starting dinner! So - tonight - while watching AI and BL I can just sit back and relax!!!

What about everyone else!? What did YOU do today?!

Today I went to the courthouse for jury duty. My name wasn't on this list so I had to go speak to the person in the jury duty office. I asked to be excused because of my hearing, and apparently was but never got my letter... go figure. At least I don't have to bother with that again.

Well... I haven't done much YET today...

My plans?! Well - I am making some coconut meringue cookies to bring to a party tonight... those I can have... the other recipe for peanut butter chocolate kisses cookies I cannot... at least I will be able to bring most of them to the party tonight and save a couple for my fam'! I hadn't really realized how LITTLE I bake now that I am on Sparks?! Anyway - after that, I am going bowling with Kim today... a fun new outing we have starting doing it seems about once a month?! We are both extremely new to bowling - so we can really use the practice! LOL! The party I am going to tonight is a girlfriend party and it should be a lot of fun...

What Did I Do Today?

Well - yesterday I met up with Suzanne in the morning, and ran to the post office and the bank and then out to Wal-Mart with my kiddo - came home empty handed which was not so fun (she went to buy a camera but they were out of the model she wanted!)... I was really dragging yesterday and so after all my running - we sort of enjoyed a quiet night at home reading and relaxing together...

Today - I met up with a friend after taking Kaye to school, then had another friend stop by for coffee... now I am off to get my workout in (especially since I skipped it yesterday?!) and then will do dinner... tonight our dd has youth group and AI is on - not to mention that book is calling my name again too... so - nothing too exciting but at least all my activities are indoors out of the 'snow'! (I am not a fan of it!)

So - what did YOU guys do today?!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - yesterday I met up with Kim - we went for a walk and then TRIED to drive the Frosty Four Route and got lost?! Obviously we don't know our way around Terrace Heights AND the map that I printed from the Runners site was handmade?! No joke?! Anyway - after that I met up with a girlfriend for coffee talk and catching up... then I had a few hours at home with the fam' before I went out to Bunko! I had a blast - and was SO happy that I thought to bring some GUM in my pocket to counter the urge to reach in to all those candy dishes on each table... it worked - I didn't have ANY!!!

Today I worked out first thing - and am doing various Spark and computer work... we are having guests over tonight from out of town and we are excited to just relax and enjoy our time with them!

Tomorrow is our Frosty Four Miler... we'll check in and let you all know how that goes! We are not officially RACING per say... but we are entered in and will be walking the route! I am hoping that maybe next year I will be ready to run at least part of it!? It's a good goal!

What Did I Do Today?

Well - I met up with a friend early this morning and we visited together a bit... then I did some things around the house - and met up with Kim and Nicki at Subway for a Team Lunch... then it was off to Grocery Shopping where I ran into a few friends and got to visit there too. I picked up my girl and then I had a great workout... Had a great dinner and read a bit then did some strength training while watching AI (and Biggest Loser!)... now I am off to read a bit more before bed! Whew?! It was a great day...

Tomorrow is wide open... I am undecided as to what I will do for a workout - I think it will depend on the weather! I SHOULD maybe at least drive out to Terrace Heights and drive the Frosty Four Miler route so I know what I am in for on Saturday! If the weather is nice - I may walk it... we'll see?!

We had a lot of new members join yesterday - not sure how they all found us - but we had at least 6 or 7 join... so if you see any new 'faces' be sure to welcome them to the site and the team!

So - what did YOU guys do today?! Jump right in and share!

Dad and I did the canyon loop trail... I think we both agreed that we won't try it again for awhile. We made it without falling but it was pretty treacherous coming down, at the bottom, AND in spots climbing back up.

What Did I Do Today?

Well - it was Monday... so I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed and got my kiddo off to school - then came home to work out... I read a bit and prepared to have some friends over to meet together over coffee and a great book... we went long (surprise?!) and ended up going out to lunch too! At least I got my workout in early... tomorrow will have to include Grocery Shopping and I will find SOMETHING to cook for dinner tonight!

Tomorrow also includes an early Team Lunch at 11am at Subway on 72nd and Tieton Dr if anyone is available - please come!

Hey there...

What Did I Do Today?! Well - I went out to Selah High school and led two workshops at a Scrapbook/Crop fund raiser... that was a lot of fun!!! Now - the house is empty and I am catching up on e-mails etc! It's so nice out - I am thinking I will go for a walk outside soon and enjoy the sunshine... NEXT Saturday is our Frosty Four Miler... it would be great if we had this kind of weather then!!!

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes!!! I had another wonderful day today. I went to the movies with several girlfriends and we had a blast. After, I went to Curves just to help lessen the affects of the chocolate birthday cake that I ate last night. Fortunately the scale didn't show any upward movement this morning.

Sorry to hear there wasn't any job bites, Pauline. School is a good thing, it may be hard, but it might just be the best idea. Good luck with making that decision.

I am hoping you guys are up for coffee or even lunch. The days that work best for me next week are Monday and Tuesday. I could do morning or an early lunch on Monday, as I have to be at the jewelry store at 1:00. Tuesday I wanted to get to the 12:30 movie matinee of the "Valkyrie". Anybody feel like seeing that movie?????

Post if you want to meet early next week. Hope to see some of you then :-) Take care, Nicki

Hi Everyone, I had an excellent day Wednesday and it was my birthday :-) Stayed busy all day and ended with my hubby taking me to Sea Galley for dinner. The fish was excellent. I did splurge by eating the free chocolate cake they brought me. I was good the rest of the day and even hit Curves in preparation for the big meal.

We will be having about 30 people over for the SuperBowl on Sunday so tomorrow I need to start getting ready. I am working Friday so will use the other days to do the heavy cleaning. Have a fantastic week everyone.

How goes the job hunt, Pauline. I hope one of the 2 jobs worked out.... Let us know. Take care, Nicki

Sounds like a very productive day, Suzanne! (& fun!)

I had a nice morning here picking up and getting in an aerobics/dance DVD before having an afternoon of coffee, coffee talk, and prayer with a good friend! My hubby cooked dinner (which was yummy and super healthy! - a new change!) and I am getting ready to settle in with the fam for a bit of American Idol/Australian Open!

Tomorrow?! Well - tomorrow I am going Bowling with my sister!!!

What Did I Do today? Well - today is just getting started - so not much yet! YESTERDAY I had my Monday meeting here at home with a group of friends, and then I went grocery shopping and worked out, made dinner and went to visit some friends so they could sort of 'interview' Kayelyn for a babysitting job! Today I plan on dropping Kaye off at school, coming home and walking with Millie (my neglected-of-late Treadmill!) and then picking up lunch to go visit a friend in Moxee... tonight I MUST start on preparing Kits for the Scrapbook Workshop I am leading on Saturday, plus I am working on a large Valentine card order! What I REALLY want to do is sip on a cup of coffee and READ?! LOL!? Oh well - no time for that today!? (Unless I read while on the treadmill... but that doesn't really give me a good workout!)

I hope you feel better tomorrow too!!! Sorry to hear you are sick.

My day was very relaxing. I hit Curves and then went to the jewelry store. We actually worked until 4:00 and then went home. I did my bible study class at 6:30 and just got home. Nice day.

Tomorrow I am a JH science teacher and then Ross has one of his last wrestling matches at Naches. Busy day :-) See you all soon I hope. Nicki

Today I ran 6.25 miles in 1:09! And feel great! Really didn't believe I would enjoy running in the cold. Not loving it, but its really not bad. I want to do the Frosty Four but not sure I can work out the logistics with all my kids.

I agree with the sunshine, Pauline!

I met up with Kim and we walked in the freezing cold this morning - but our reward was a bit of Wii time! Then I went to my friend Lori's and we chatted and sipped coffee for hours! This is my 'schedule' for Thursdays! Not bad, I know!

I am off to do the BOOTCamp video and hang out with my kid a bit... then I am starting some Rustic Lentil Soup (SparksRecipe!) Yum!!!

I just worked today and then hit Curves before coming home. It certainly wasn't as relaxing of a day as yesterday was for me. I laid in bed until after all the stuff in Washington was over. This was the first time I actually watched all the ceremony around a new president. It was really interesting....

Have a fantastic day tomorrow everyone. I may not have a chance to get on here at all. I am subbing at the JH and then Ross has a wrestling match at Ike at night. Talk to you all later :-) Nicki

What Did I DO Today?

Well - not much yet... yesterday I enjoyed a very relaxing day with my little one who returned from Camp! I let her stay home and get some extra rest! They always come home drained and primed for sickenss so we took a preventative day and watched Gilmore girls together and got caught up... it was nice! I managed to still do my Bootcamp video and a workout in teh evening while she was at youth group! I also finished up some scrapbook pages too!

Today - well - I got her to school on time and did my Bootcamp video... I am making a grocery list and meeting a friend for a walk on the Greenway at noon... I intend to take it easy tonight with the fam'!

What about everyone else?! What did YOU do today?

We got back late last night from our quick trip to Mexico. Had a great time! It was very relaxing and the 86 degree weather didn't hurt a bit! Hated to come back to reality. Only glitch was that we ended up flying out of Seattle instead of Spokane, but luckily found out early enough that our flight in Spokane had been cancelled due to fog so that we were able to head the other direction.
Were sitting by another Yakima couple by the pool yesterday!

We had a WONDERFUL lunch today!!! Thanks to everyone that joined us. It was really nice to meet Sam in person. Hope we can do it again soon. After lunch, I went to the jewelry store and helped students. Tonight I have a bible study class at 6:30. Busy day BUT it has been a fun day. Take care everyone :-) Nicki

I don't think you should have to play alone! emoticon I really can't say I have done anything today though except try to get caught up on my emails! Yesterday I went to church then to a friends to play games. It was fun! Hope everyone is well!
