Park Fun!

We were so happy to have some warm weather here for the last couple of days! I have lots of appointments this week, but tried to get the girls out as much as possible in between appointments and work. Today was soooo windy, but still warm so we made sure to go to the park after Ella's craft class at the Community Center. We were the only ones there, so I guess we are the "tough" ones of the neighborhood...or more likely the ones who are going most stir crazy with all of the cold weather. We had fun...a little wind didn't keep us inside-almost blew us away, though! : )

I started a Pilates class this week. Oh, my goodness! It was a good reminder to me of just how out of shape I am!! I am sore in muscles I never knew I had. I am guilty of not taking time for myself, so this is my attempt to do that and get in better shape. I used to exercise regularly before we moved here 6 years ago. I miss my exercise friends where I used to live (Eileen and my walking partners!). I am one of those people who has to have company when I exercise. So, now six years later...I am going to try to get back in the swing of things. Plus it helps me when I have an exercize committement to not grab that junk food quite so readily. It's a mental thing - "don't do it! don't put that extra cookie in your mouth when you are struggling to get through an exercise class!" Better late than never, I guess.

We've had some warm days this week also and I am hoping it will tide me over until Spring.
Way to go on the Pilates class!!!
