Hey Ya'll

Sorry for the lack of posts... life has been rather busy with school, work, and well - LIFE!   I'll keep this brief and hopefully get back into the swing of posting in May!

School - AHH!  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Quite honestly, it seems surreal!   I have one 10 page paper and one presentation left on the to-do list.  Classes are officially over on May 9th and graduation is May 19th.

Pinterest - My latest addiction - maybe a little too much!  We had a Pinterest party at my house a couple of weeks ago and have two more scheduled.  You can see the projects we completed in the picture -- crayon art;  upcycled planters; air freshners; and upcycled "fireworks".   We are currently working on our entryway - the inspiration came from Pinterest (of course!).   I've found alot of GREAT inspiration for exercise too - I have one board devoted to exercise quotes!

Exercise - I had another issue with my back. (ARGH!)  This time I took a two week break absolutely nothing for two weeks - nothing, nada, zilch. I decided to take a break from boot camp for until May.  I've been climbing stairs at work - 12 flights once a day and walking 3 miles M-W-F - trying to ease myself back into. I never realized how much injury prevention is a part of training!

Oh yeah, I had a birthday in March too!  My exercise buddy & I decided to do something fun for our birthdays, so we had a party.  Not an eat cake and pin-the-tail on the donkey party though - we had a Monkey Hooper party!   We were afraid if we did a "boot camp" no one would come.  Anyway,  we had a great time - if you've never tried a hula hoop cardio workout, I highly recommend it!   Monica does a fantastic job and makes it alot of fun. 

That's all for now folks!  I'll be back soon!
