I had a pretty nice mother's day. My husband grilled some chicken. We took it over to my mother n laws house. We then went and visited my Mother's grave. It was a very hard mother's day for me. This was the 2nd mother's day without my Mother. The first one was bad but I could not visit her. We lived in Virginia then and now we live in Texas with both sides of the family. I did meet my water goal and veggies too.

I hope all had a Happy Mother's day.
I found my younger brother ~ He's in the Army & he gets around. It's been over a year since we had contact. At that time he was divorcing wife & 3(Analasted about a year) & now he has just married (Liz 02.27.09) wife # 4. All of his wives have come with drama.
I called my Aunt Mary Ann ~ Uncle's blood clot was successful broken down he'll be around for awhile.
I still can not locate me Mom Patsy Rains Hollow (Wheless'Holzer'Hill'James'Thompkin)maiden - 5 married names.
I have now chosen ~ Not to let this drama effect me. I did not over eat~Yeah me!
I had alot of hard projects to do. We are placing our home on the market.
I had to use muscles I have not felt in a while. I drank my 8 for each day of the weekend, and ate my veggies. My husband & daughter wanted Pancakes on Sat & Sun for breakfast. I stay all happy with my food choices, my exercise programs & my challenges. I feel great

Planted flowers for my mother and mother-in-law yesterday. Today I'm sore from using muscles I guess I normally don't use, but it feels good.

Happy Mother's day everyone - Had a fabulous day in the garden - managed to get all my raised beds weeded, planted basil, dill, sunflowers, peppers and marigolds. Also got some iris's and hostas in. 6 hours of sunshine - what a relief after a month of rain - With all that work in the garden I had no trouble getting my water in and was even able to harvest some lettuce and spinach for a fresh salad to meet the veggie goal. Looking forward to peas and radishes in the weeks ahead.

No kids in our house but we'll be calling the mother-in-law and the great-aunt to say Happy Mother's Day. Workouts done for the day, plus a little bit of gardening. The rain has finally ended and it's a lovely spring day here in Northern Virginia.

Actually made my water goal, one of the rare times. I do well with the veggies most days. Haven't gotten out, except to take my son to the batting cages. Then had to go back to the batting cages, because he left his cell phone there. Fortunately, some kind soul had found it, called me, and turned the phone in.

I love the daily challenges. Even if I have to work, I can handle ten minutes of working out. Thanks Kelly.

Not exactly a leisurely stroll, but I did walk over 3.5 miles with the dogs today. Felt great and enjoyed the beautiful morning.

I won't be joining in today... I went to bed last night feeling poorly and woke up feeling worse. Just got on to log in the food I ate and will be going back to bed soon. Happy Mother's Day to me.

I went to yard sales this morning. A whole small town here in Ohio was having a yard sale so it was great to park and get out and walk to them all - 90 minutes!! Wooohoo!! And fun too. I will probably do more later - just received the Richard Simmons collectors pack on DVD - he definitely makes exercising fun! Happy Mother's Day Ladies!!

Happy Mother's Day, moms!

The whole family walked down to our local farmer's market, which has moved. The day is lovely, the veggies and fruits were great, the kids went into the jumpy room, and we clocked a two-mile walk without too much whining (from me, of course!). I did it and didn't collapse! Yay!

Hello all! I've gotten in 2 15 minute walks with my puppy today so far. I usually get 2 20-25 minute walks a day. I figure I need it, as with all the stops & starts, I'm not working up a sweat.

Happy Mother's Day to all...I'm cleaning house today...got my walking shoes on and I'm sure I'm walking tons, BUT I am also going to go to the gym later..it's kind of dreary here today and the weather looks "iffy". I leave for the beach next Friday...a full week on the beach with my best friend. We go every year, play tennis, eat seafood and walk and of course sit on the beach...and we wll have a few adult beverages but I am going to try to be careful with the food and drinks and of course get in as much exercise as I can! PS...hubby stays home to watch the dogs. :)
Tomorrow I will go to my moms and bring lunch for her and my sisters...I doubt my boys will send a card and they probably won't remember to call..but maybe they'll surprise me...who knows.

Have a great day all! The dust bunnies are SCREAMING for me...so off I go!

Failure is NOT an option!

Saturday ~ if you are able...enjoy a leisurely walk or stroll! The fresh air does wonders for you...or, if you are like me...go shopping for Mother's Day and enjoy yourself!
