A weekend with family

Sorry for the late blog. I was with family that lives a few hrs from us. It was a great day on Saturday, we attended my nephew Scottie's  basketball game, he plays both JV and Varsity(they won both games too!!), and my niece Emma who is 9 was a mini-cheerleader at the game, i am so blessed to have them both and they made me so proud to be their aunt. I normally sit on the bottom row of the bleachers, but climbed up higher to be with the rest of my family and even though it may be only 8 or 10 steps further up to get there, every little bit counts when it comes to exercise and trying to get healthy.  We all went to dinner after the game and I was happy that on the menu was a vegetarian meal that I would be able to have, what I did plan before and have decided to do if and when we do go out is only to eat half of what I order.  It seems that meal are alot larger then they used to be and a few times i have asked for a box when ordering my meal so that I separate the two at the beginning so I am not tempted to finish it all.  Looking forward to the week, I am meeting with a coach/trainer at the YMCA and hoping to plan my schedule to where I can get some time to speak to someone about the exercise classes in the pool there also, and possibly yoga.  Will write more in a few days to update and look forward to anyone that would like to write in. Take care.
