An update, I guess?

While my last entry was in January, I can't say that I've been busy the entire time. I think I'm experiencing "Blogger's Block". Seems like no matter how hard I try, I just don't blog like I should. Ugh.

I hit a milestone in the time that I've been away.
I am now on my way...."over the hill".
I turned the "big 4-0" on March 4th. Thankfully, I'm taking on a young attitude about the whole thing. Leading up to this momentous day, I've been saying, "Fourty is the "new" twenty".
My mom surprised me with a strawberry-whipped cream cake from the bakery. Oh My!! It was soooo yummy!!!

I am happy to say that my attempt at weight loss is being successful. I am showing a loss at each weigh-in. It's so exciting! I did reach one of my goals, which was to quit drininking "regular" iced tea and make the switch to the diet version. If you know me, you know just how big of an accomplishment this is! Even after that delicious birthday cake, I am STILL losing weight!

I didn't stop just there....I am going to get in as much sunshine and exercise as possible. The warmer temperatures are already making this possible. I took a nice long walk this past Sunday, and instead of driving I walked to Wal-Mart yesterday.

Of course, I wasn't "alone" on my walk. I took my camera with me and snapped a few pics. I can't wait for summer to come so I can compare the pics. I love when everything is lush and green rather than the empty brown colors that I now see. No matter what the season, I really am blessed to live in such a beautiful area.
It wasn't planned, but on my Sunday walk, I saw the man that I see walking often. I'm sure we'll meet up again, and I'll get to know him a little better. He's the same man that would smile and wave as we drove past him in the car.
Well, one thing that hasn't kids. I am now listening to Trevor complain about the lag in his game on XBox because I am uploading pics. Grrrr!! I will end for now and I shall return! I have so much more to update!
