Savoring and Anticipating

I try to be in the moment as a whole but I can not help but savor the past few days with Li'l Sis
  • Pizza, cask and debut Thursday at DFH
  • Long walks in the 'hood with the pups
  • Thrifting and scoring at Dave's Surplus
  • A visit to the local knit shop and fondling yarn and laughing about projects with the cute owner
  • Walking along Herring Point with the dogs
  • Roberto at the Italian Deli and our delicious hand picked antipasto platter
After she left
  • enjoying my new chair in my knitting corner
  • Mama Mia and our surround system
  • breakfast with old friends who were in the area
  • brewing beer with new friends with the promise of bottling in two weeks
Anticipating this week
  • dinner out with new friends
  • company over for dinner
  • a birthday party at the pub
  • charity sewing
  • a massage
  • a visit from one of my girls
  • farkle with my mentee
  • a walk to The Clayton to see The Kings Speech
Sounds good, doesn't it?

Okay, I must admit it, I am proud of myself.  Today was the beginning of week 3 of exercising.  I joined a new gym and their New Year's challenge.  It took me two weeks before I was motivated enough to really attempt anything.  My routine consists of 3 days strength training, Zumba whenever I can (usually 2x a week), other cardio, and yoga 1 day a week.  I feel better, have more energy and knit faster ;-)  Sometimes it's all I can do to leave the house but once I am at the gym, I am ready, I am able, and I do it.  I tried something new today with the TRX system they have and really liked it.  I will continue to incorporate new things, hope to meet new people. and hope to change my body even though our first weigh was quite disappointing.  I guess it was that beer the night before - Mojo Risin'.  That's not going to change.
