My Life Update

We all went to the San Francisco zoo last weekend and I'm just blogging about it now. We took all three of our kids and a neighbor girl. We had lots of fun, did lots of walking, and came home VERY tired. We've not been there since Tyler was 3, so it was really nice. They've added some new stuff since the last time.

I've been horrible about keeping up lately with my blogging and I apologize to everyone. I noticed quite a few people are still visiting even though I've been "absent" and I really appreciate that! Work is getting kind of crazy again. Quarter end is coming up and we had some big acquisitions I'm dealing with right now. And I've started excercising regularly. I've started walking 4 -5 times a week with some neighbors. I even got out my Tae-Bo tapes and could hardly get out of my chair at work last week! I have some pilates DVDs that I want to incorporate as well, but am concentrating more on aerobic exercise right now.

The good news though is I lost 3 1/2 pounds last week! I know most is water the first week, but I'm still happy. Shaun has an x-box 360 that he won in a contest a few years ago when they first came out. I talked him into buying a game called Dance Dance Revolution. Have you seen those dancing games in the arcades? Well, it is basically that. We just got it last night and I'm already hooked. I'm not all that good, but it sure works up a sweat!

I've been needing to do this for awhile and then a couple weeks ago I went in for my annual. I'm actually very healthy and have great blood pressure. But it has gotten to the point where the doctor mentioned that my weight is a "little bit much" for 5' 2". I laughed and said "a little much? Try way too much!" So I'm cutting back on portions, cutting out most of the junk (I tend to binge if I totally cut it all out) and I've started exercising regularly.

Well, there is my update. Hope you are all doing well and I'll try to do better with this blogging thing! Just keep visiting, it is encouraging!

Good for you! It will make you feel better to, and better to keep up with my grand kids too....they are going to keep you running, they are getting to that age....haha. Oh those where the days, and I have to admit I miss them. Great picture of Tyler, she is getting to be such a cute girl, like her mom. Hugs, YOUR MOM.
