Still doing well on Weight Watchers. Made it through Thanksgiving without a problem. Brad, Kami, Zip and I went to the Golden Corral and had a nice dinner with no cooking or clean-up. They had a generous selection of foods including many steamed veggie sides.
I know that when a person loses weight, the loss of bone and muscle mass can be a problem without proper exercise. My nemesis!!! I've been trying to start an exercise program. Trying, but not succeeding!
My plan was to start going to the local Strong Women group. This is a weight training and nutrition program geared toward older women.
It's a six-week course. By the time I ordered my weights and they were delivered, there were only two sessions left in the course. I'd have to wait till the first of next year to begin.
I knew that our Shippensburg Senior Center has thai chi classes so checked their website. They also have Zumba, line dancing and chair pilates. And most are free! Our lottery profits at work???
Zip and I went to check it out. Both of us joined up. Zip for the lunches (LOL!) and me for the exercise and whatever other things sound interesting. I know Senior Centers get a bum rap. My Mom who is 88 said she wouldn't join that because there's too many Old People!!! Well, I'm not so vain that I can't admit that I'm a senior! I'm rather proud of it. Zip and I want to be living proof that seniors don't have to be fogies (I guess there could be opposing opinions on that! ha-ha!)
Yesterday I took my first Zumba class. Big discovery: my bottom half and my top half are no longer in sync! If I concentrate on doing the arm movements, my legs are doing who knows what and vice versa. And where has my sense of rhythm and coordination gone??? It was a hoot!!! No, there are NO PICTURES!!!
It was fun. I will be going back....
Otherwise life has been pretty normal. Sewing, cooking, spending time with the kitties.
I've been working on a uniform jacket for Brad and Kami.
Isabel is trying it on! Do ya think it fits???
She is such a character! I'm trying to work on a piece and she's burrowing under it!
Deiter and Penny are having a quiet afternoon of snuggling. Something that they don't often do without a little hissing and 'you're-on-my-spot' discussion.
We have had for several years a group of feral cats living in the neighborhood. We feed them. Yes, I know, you feed them, they're yours. About two months ago two young ones showed up, a little orange long-hair and a little dilute calico. I love ALL cats, but those little calico girls just have a special place in my heart. This little girl was so scared to begin with that she hid in our summer kitchen for weeks. Finally she began coming out. Last Friday she came close enough for me to touch and that was the beginning. She is now in my upstairs weaving room. She's been to the vet (and was a very good girl!) and has a clean bill of health. Just a two week isolation period and she will be ready to be introduced to the rest of the group.
Pictures next time!
I must go get Zip out of bed. He doesn't know it yet, but we are going to the movies this afternoon to see 'Lincoln'. I've heard it's good!
The moon setting over the mountains earlier this morning.
Have a great day!
