La Talavera Staying Fit

Sharla here again. This past week seemed long and exhausting. I think the exhausting part comes from my allergy meds, but I am finally feeling normal again.

This week I was able to visit Anita Beiles on Monday, and we had a great time together doing things on the computer, having lunch, laughing and having coffee in the afternoon with the ladies from the church. It was a nice relaxing day for a change and she and Barry were very sweet to put up with me for a day. :)

Tuesday thru Friday I was able to up my running on my track to 30 min. Yay!

Yesterday, Sat., was my daughters birthday so I made a chocolate cake with a thick glossy frosting. It looked sooo yummy! I served myself a small piece and went and sat down in front of the computer and read your journals. I did that on purpose so as not to eat another piece. It worked!! As I was reading and watching Dani doing her exercises in her living room, I was encouraged to go out and take a walk. I took a 40 min. walk to the entrance of our urbanization and back home again. When I was coming back, my future daughter-in-law drove by with an unsaved couple friend of hers and wanted to give me a lift home. This couple had their brand new baby with them. I was soo excited to see their new baby that I walked jogged back home. That was quite the challenge since my walk back home is all up hill!! Needless to say, by the time I got home I was panting heavily. The good news? I felt fantastic afterwards and was able to finish all my work past eleven p.m. with all kinds of energy. yay!!

It will be interesting to see if I can jog all the way home up hill without stopping in the near future.

Many blessings to you all this week,

Sharla G.
