We are back from our trip to New Zealand and Australia so in the spring I want to get a puppy. I will take my time to find a good breeder, so it may actually be a while before puppy comes home.

I haven't posted here in a while ... decided to drop by today. Well Sandra - I sure wouldn't be able to accompany you and your sister to an animal shelter without bringing something home!!! I couldn't even go next door when my neighbor's pig had piglets! I know at least one would have 'followed' me home - ha! I had to stay away until they found 'other homes' for the little guys. Have a good evening!

My sister's cat died she wants me to go with her to the shelter to look at the kittens. DH said he better go too to make sure I don't bring a kitten home. LOL.

Have a wonderful day and stay focused.

We have a young woman in our Church that does chalk drawings. She will do them during a song. She has appts. Going to other Churches doing them.

That is her calling to do religious drawings. She does them on cardboard. Large ones. We are Blessed to have her.

That does sound like a fun day! I've never seen chalk drawings on sidewalks by artists ... I'm always fascinated/interested in artists and all the many ways they can express themselves ... and us! It's amazing to think how much the art world has given us.

Today I went with my father and step mother to the Chalk Festival in Denver. I have never seen chalk drawings up close and personal so it was very cool to see the artists starting their drawings. This is a two day event and I think it would have been better to go the second day and see the finished pictures, but I enjoyed watching the artists. I could not imagine spending two days on my knees and bent over a sidewalk to color a picture. It was a very fun day.

We just got home from Johns.

We had a grilled picnic. Although John wanted to eat in the house and listen to the radio.

When it was apparent John couldn't keep his eyes open we came home!HE heard on the radio it was about to storm, he was ready for us to come home! He has always been very protective of me!

I bet he is sound asleep. Lexie was glad we were home.

I wanted to let everyone know that on Mother's Day, May 8th I ran my very first 5k and completed the race!!! I even got a time of 35 minutes which I thought was great for someone who is not a runner. I will continue running some races, but now I have my sights set on a half marathon next year in May. It goes through a beautiful part of Denver and we get to run through part of the zoo!!! This sounds like fun (minus the running part), but it gives me a goal to work towards.

Ok Friends, I have just signed up to run my very first 5K. I am nervous and excited about this, but I think I can do it. I ran three miles today and I want to run a couple more times, depending on the weather, before the race on Mothers Day. Wish me luck!

It took Bill a long, long time to 'get it' ... for me. In regards to himself - he has the worst eating habits and is so 'non-exercise' it's unbelieveable to me he can still function - ha! We are a funny pair - he is tall/skinny and hasn't gained more than 5 lbs. at any time in his life ... I'm short/fat and can gain - well you might understand - too much overnight almost - ha!

Thanks so much Kechara14! If ya'll could 'see' me right now I don't think I would make a very inspiring sight however - ha! I'm a bit whipped and overdone at the moment - ha!

I increased my walking to 53 min this morning ... 2.5 miles. But, admittedly, it kind of drained me (not during the walk - but now/much later) ... well, actually I only got 3 hours sleep last night and that didn't help. Now, I do not think I can 'get done' today what I actually should around here. But I felt good while walking and I got 'inspired' to do a little bit of off road walking/exploring down a trail that leads to the beach. I hope someday to be able to manage my way down ... AND back ... but that's some time off in the far distant future...if ever.

I'm trying to make my health the priority - and not my chores, getting this property 'into shape', etc. etc. It's VERY FRUSTRATING to me that I cannot do both right now every day ... I just don't have enough 'oomph' or it gets too painful. In the past I've let 'myself' go and focused on 'getting things done'. Now I'm turning that around - or trying to - and getting 'myself' done FIRST. Fortunately I have a very supportive husband ... he has seen me struggle with all these issues for the 30 years we've been together. He doesn't care if chores don't get done if I'm tired because I'm trying to re-incorporate exercise back into my life and sometimes that causes painful flareups in my joints, etc. But he does get impatient with my 'guilt' feelings that I'm NOT 'doing it all' ...and I need to work on that. I should not feel 'guilty' because I'm trying to do what needs to be done to get healthier! He's more sensible/reasonable/realisitic than I am. I am blessed to have him. The dishes, laundry, yardwork can wait for a few hours while I rest or wait longer if need be. My health cannot be put on hold any longer.

Stress is stress ... stressing about not being able to physically do everything right now is not any better than stressing about being overweight. But I have to make a choice and for the first time I'm trying to choose my health and do my exercise ... not a cleaned up spic and span house and properly tended to yard/garden installation. As I rebuild my strength and stamina I'm surely - one day - going to be able to 'do it all again' - like I used to ... or close to it. Heck, may surprise myself and be even better than ever - who knows? It IS possible! ha!

Today was the first day in a long while (months/year or more) that I walked 45 min. In 2013 when I had severe hypertension a cardiac doctor at a free health event advised me to go the 'vegan' route and walk 45 min daily to get my blood pressure down quickly since I was not willing to take pills, etc. I've been working on the 'vegan' part all this time but really haven't made a dedicated - COMMITTED - effort to walking until this month. I started out at 20 min ... and have been averaging 30 min ... but not daily yet. Today, however, I walked 47 min ... and it didn't kill me - ha!

But I forgot ... tonight I have to take care of my neighbor's horses and other pets ... I walk over and feed the horses out in the pasture ... more walking! I hope my knees hold up - ha!

Hope everyone is having a good Monday. Had to have the landlord over to fix our toilet today. The donut underneath wasn't any good and the seal had cracked so we were getting a stink that was unbearable. Thankfully it was a fairly easy fix. So all is up and running smoothly once again.

Just a quick note to say THANKS!!!! to those who have dropped me a note!! My Mom (age 92) has been struggling with deep vein thrombosis, an ulcer on one foot and 4 falls in 8 weeks. It's been exhausting, to say the least. We're trying to get her into assisted living, but that will be a slow process since we have to wait until her VA benefits are in place. Now, my hubby is down with a bad cold so I'm back to 24-hour duty for a few days. Arghhhh!!!!!

Deeply appreciate any and all prayers!!!! Hopefully, I'll be back one day!

Hope everyone is having a good Thursday. We thought Bob's pension check would be here today since there's 31 days in the month, but nope, it'll be here tomorrow. I'm washing clothes now so I won't need to do it over the weekend.

Congratulations Gini on getting your walk in!!! You will find that tracking your calories is a big help. I am sure that you have many recipes and food choices, but I found that SparkPeople recipes, Weight Watchers and Skinnytaste.com all have really good recipes that have lower calorie counts which can help.

Keep up the awesome job and positive attitude!!!

Against my usual inclination to stay on the outside of groups, I joined the 5% Spring Challenge. I was so Lucky to be put on the Spirited Underdogs team. I know some of the members already.
SO far today, because of the challenge I walked my 10 minutes early this morning. This is something I have been procrastinating about forever. It is very painful for both my knee and my back BUT I must learn to tolerate this and get on with as normal a life as possible SO, Whoo Haw for me today. Also Unlike me in every way, I preposted my nutrition at lunchtime. Seems WHat I thought was a perfectly good day is going to be about 400 calories above my limits. Goes to show that when you write what you might bite or did bite, you can be very shocked. Tonight, I will prepost tomorrows meals and snacks and make sure I am in bounds BEFORE I eat it. SOunds like there is a very loud echo in here. I keep hearing, "Spark already told you that 1 million times"!!!

These are my high points today and I am so pleased with myself,that I am sitting here grinning. This challenge is getting me motivated when I thought I would be just scared.
Thanks to the team for all the welcomes and friend adds. It means so much to me.

WOOOOOOOOOF Dawggies, emoticon

My Wednesday and Thursday have been snowy and I have been working from home. I have not gotten to get out and walk much which is making Toby nuts.

It is very sad about Brussels and my heart and prayers go out to all the families.

Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday so far. Starting out slow here. Bob is down with a kidney infection so he's not moving too swiftly and my slipped disc is trying to flare up so I'm trying to take it a little easy today so it doesn't get worse.
It's awful about Brussels and all that's going on there. All I can do is pray about it.

Hey Miss Vicki! I hope you are having a good day. I went hiking for 35 minutes today and did a 35 minute workout to Jillian Michaels and while I need to get laundry done too the only thing I want to do is take a nap so I think that is what I will do. I can always start on laundry later.

I hope everyone is having a great day.

I do not know if any of you would be interested, but I came across another site for exercise videos on Youtube called BeFit TV. You can sign up for access to lots and lots of exercise videos of different lengths, by different trainers, and all different types of exercise all for free. This might be a different option if you do not want to go out or have money for all the classes. I prefer exercising at home so this is a great option for me especially since I can try yoga or pilates or kick boxing. Check it out if you get the chance.

I sliced it thin, layered them on a a towel, covered them with salt and put another towel on top for half an hour. Then I rinsed the salt off, dipped them in an egg-wash then in a mixture of parmesan cheese and something else (sorry I forgot) then you bake them for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping half way, once done you can either spoon tomato sauce and mozzarella on each individual one or layer them in a baking dish and putting them back in the oven to melt the cheese and warm up the sauce. My eggplant came out kind of chewy and a funny taste.

However, I have only tasted eggplant parmesan once in restaurant and thought it tasted ok, so not sure what I did wrong.

Ok Miss Vicki, I made the eggplant parmesan, but I did not like it at all. I think my husband may finish what is left, but I will not touch it.
