    Chris - that picture lol...so cute!

    It's been a bit of a tough week going back to school here. Bella hasn't been going in first. For over a year now and now is back first. Needless to say mornings are not easy around here. So we are working on it.

    One of my best friends fathers also passed away he was like a father to me. So that was particularly sad this week. What makes it even worse is the funeral is going to be on a date when I am out of town. Yikes.

    My boss quit at work. Lots of fun!

    Really happy it is Friday!

    I've done a pretty good job with eating better this week and did rejoin planet fitness. Off to sunrise yoga this morning :-)

    More water, healthier food choices, more movement, Shelley’s plank/squat challenge and strength training. Tired of losing the same 5 pounds over and over again. Time tote out of the 170s.

    Let’s do this ladies! 💪🏾

    Karen that is rough. Sending you lots of good vibes.

    Kathy I am also losing the same few pounds. Ridiculous! So glad you and Chris are with me in the mini challenge. <3

    Chris I previewed the first workout. Really like it. Will do tomorrow morning.

    Long day. Worked on my hips some more. Working towards being able to sit cross legged for long periods. Seeing improvement already.

    Karen, I'm sorry for what you are going through. Sending you good thoughts and love.
    Kathy, I lose and gain the same pounds also...maddening!!
    Shelley, I'll never be able to sit cross legged again...hip surgeon said...nopey, nope! That's the only thing he put the kibosh on.
    I did get 5.12 miles done in 103 mins this morning. Our weather is really strange...it sprinkled on me during part of my walk but didn't sprinkle here at home. Low clouds all day long. We'll just have to see what tomorrow is like on my way to the post office and back.

    Chris I ended up taking y SIL, Kyle, home shortly after we started yesterday. He has a nasty case of shingles. Puking, diarrhea, rash, face swelling. Blisters on his eye lids. He was told to go see his eye doctor as soon as possible. Is in danger of losing sight in his eye.

    Rocky and I finished up most of the siding on our own. Both peaks are done. Still have the porch left. I will post photos later. Barney even went up in the lift. Silly pup. It rained on and off today. Made our day longer. Constantly having to measure, go down and cut new pieces to take up and install. Was bad enough! Add in the down pours made for a long day. We did as much from the scaffolding as possible. Easier to work off of. The hard parts are done. I am counting all the climbing as my squats today.

    Shelley, I hope SIL and Kyle are okay. Shingles are nasty s***, man!! Sounds like he has more issues than his eyes.
    I got 5.74 miles done in 107 mins Sunday, saw my trainer for a good workout yesterday for 60 mins and I got 3.38 miles done in 62 mins this morning then Collin Duty! SIL has a head cold today...oh, the things I could say... >:)

    He went to the eye doctor and picked up meds for his eyes. Chris is it men in general or this generation? We took care of our babes no matter how we felt

    Here is Barney. And me b3gznhxnnufs.jpeg

    Check out my new bike that my brother built for me. He’s visiting and surprised me. It’s red and black like my favorite football team the Atlanta Falcons. Check out my initial k and the falcon emblem.my brother is retired Air Force, 24 years, worked for a defense contractor for 10 years and is on his second retirement.

    He’s always loved bikes and started taking them apart as a kid. He’s taught himself how to build them and now has a part time job with REI. They saw his work and begged him to come to work for them. He decided to work part time mostly for the discount on parts and he’s so much like mom…had to stay busy. As a thank you to me he surprised me with this sweet red bike. We’re going to the park tomorrow so I can see if I still know how. 😂

    Chris an hour is a great walking time. You rock.

    Kathy it is beautiful. And that is a great shade of red! Love love love it. How did it go? If you can't ride still send me that sweet ride. My brother only knows how to break things! :D

    Went to a wedding tonight. Kathy I wore a dress. Two of my best friends got married. They both lost their spouses years ago. It was such a heart felt wedding. So very happy for them.

    I am dog sitting Kimbo again. He is such a sweet boy. Lester brought him to us last night. He brought his father in law also. He wanted to see our mustang. He does not speak English, and is originally from Cuba. No language barrier between him and our cat though. They were fast friends.
