Happy Monday Friends,  I hope you had a wonderful and restful weekend.  Today is the day I start going to our local gym, making the winter accomplish something other than fluffing my feathers.  Last year, I didn't gain any weight during the winter but with our trip to Ca., I have added a few pounds and am anxious to rid myself of it.  With our winter weather we often can't get out to walk, so I found a great membership rate for seniors and will take advantage of it.  I hope to work out between 3-4 times per week; firming up, slimming down and getting back on track with weights.  I had a weight program for one year but then somehow it slipped away. 

Since hubby and I have a vacation planned in the spring and I know we won't be up to our bike riding then, I am hoping that this will help me get ready for nicer weather,capris, swimsuits and more riding this year. A girl can hope, can't she?!

A Very Important Announcement
We all know that after Feb.29th any of our followers who
do not use Google (blog spot) will be dropped from our
followers widget on our sidebars.  Because several blog friends have reminded me of this, I chose to offer a Linky Follower for my friends who do not use Blogger. If this pertains to you, please become a Linky Follower now! It is very easy and because I appreciate
having you as a blogging friend, I would really miss you!

Blessings, Noreen


  1. This is the first I heard of that. What impact (if any) will this have on blogs showing up in Google Reader?

    Hope you're able to get into great shape for your upcoming trip. I am watching what I eat and slowly dropping the few pounds I gained last fall. There will be swimsuits and shorts for our trip in 4 weeks ... and I'm determined to be ready! ;-)

  2. Noreen, good for you! I am starting back on the exercise bike. Yay!

    Happy Monday,
    Barb ♥

  3. Hi Lovely Nor'! Happy Monday! Had a few minutes and had to pop in to say hi!! Love the pic of you and your brother and friends!! I'm sooo glad you had a good time in CA!! I prayed for you!

    I'm sure you'll shed those pounds quickly! You're beautiful anyway! I am walking, doing some basic exercises at home, and bike riding. Wish mine were coming off more quickly, but my back has been acting up, so I'm limited on what I can do. An uphill battle for sure, but the Lord is on my side!! :o)

    Hope you have a fabulous week, dear friend!! Love ya! Please keep praying for the details of these two weddings!! I'm having a tough time finding a dress that will work and is affordable!!

    Big hugs!

  4. Weight is always creeping up on us older girls!!!! For me I don't even have to eat more!!!!! LOL
    Honey you should try to get that awful 2 WV off your blog!!!

  5. I guess I will have to do a Linky followers too on my blog!
    Yes, I hear ya on the extra pounds thing. I need to lose it!!

  6. Thanks so much for making me aware of the blogger changes that make a "linky follower" important. I had no idea! I'm hoping that I can find the widget easily in blogger.

    Good luck with the weights! It's amazing how fast the body can adapt to a new program like that!

  7. I'm trying to get back into my exercising routine, as well! A bit hard to start it up again but I'm now past the soreness so I will continue. lol
    Thanks for thinking of Olivia. It was a rare Teratoma tumor that she had.
