Welcome to the 60's, Jo! It's a fun time. Ruth, Astra looks like our Sammy from behind except for the tail. Love the pics. Sammy pulls me uphill and makes me run downhill. We met a woman the other day who bikes 30K with her huskies. I'll have to see how I can do that, too. Sweet, hope the tendonitis calms down completely soon.

I already got my refund. It's a great incentive to file early.

DD and DH went for a helicopter ride while I took the dog for a walk. They flew over Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy while I got to know the neighborhood a bit more.

Happy Birthday, Jo!

Sweet, sorry about your injury and hope you get better soon. I don’t have implants but my recon is wide on the bottom half, less full top half, and I do well with Body by Victoria at Victoria’Secret. I had originally struggled, went to nordstrom’s for a bra fitting and found I needed to go down in band size, up in cup size, and certain styles work. I am intrigued by Third Love, which has in-between sizes, but havent tried.

I have been postponing finishing my taxes since so far, I owe over $4000 with one worker and one soc sec, and no change to income. Last year we got money back. We are getting hit by the limited state and local taxes deduction. Time to move to Florida or Texas.

I have been getting more exercise in during the week but it was cold and dreary yesterday so I did nothing. Go figure, nice during the week and then the weekend comes and winter returns.

Thanks for the well wishes on the tendinitis. 98% of the time it’s fine, but when I reach or stretch in certain directions or angles it generates unladylike language 😔.

Was beat today as tossed and turned all night (as did DH) so it was a long Sunday afternoon nap for me after church and lunch.

CO - while I have fairly large implants they pretty well stay put and I can go without a bra too, which I always do at home. Sports bras are more to absorb sweat than support for me. I do still like pretty bras though, and certain shirt fabrics are too revealing of the texture of my scars, plus I have a bit of ‘side-boob’ action that looks better with a good bra (due to carrying extra weight plus some remaining dog-ear tissue even after an early revision to remove). Have been thinking about another revision lately to improve the shape.

Hoping to be an early riser tomorrow to jumpstart the metabolism for the day, probably treadmill or elliptical

Wonderful 20-mile ride today in the farmland about 10 miles from here. The sun was out and everyone was smiling including cattle, dogs, horses, and chickens. I saw a field filled with migratory geese who then flew in formation against the blue sky.

Cherry trees were also in bloom. Everything was fragrant with Spring. 

Adjusted my bicycle seat once again, so much more fun. Ended the ride at a tasting room I had spied on my way back from skiing. Got to chat with the vintner for quite some time as was the only taster. Great fun and wonderful wine.

Came home to a nap and fragrant bubble bath. Must do more of this. Steak for dinner tonight as stopped for a sale on Wagyu beef. Yum!! - Claire

Walking downhill for 40 minutes within an hour after eating has bone benefits (at least for diabetics - not mentioned in the article).

But the fitbit only measures uphill climbs!

My exercise tonight is cleaning my guest bedroom. My guest bedroom is equivalent to a kitchen "catchall" drawer. The good news is I have to clean it tonight because my guests are coming tomorrow. The bad news is I have to clean it tonight because my guests are coming tomorrow. I will count this as a strenuous activity. I have numerous heavy containers I need to move to their correct place.

I subbed again, grabbed the grand-dogs and met my friend & her Husky in the park. It is lots of work walking a rambunctious, big puppy and a crazy little chihuahua at the same time!!! I then went to a HIIT class, so am now finally home sitting on my couch doing NOTHING!

Ah, yes Heidi Hill, I see..exquisite! Covering a bodybalance/flow class this morning and then attending a moving forward after cancer treatment day-long symposium put on by cancer charity Macmillan. I'm speaking in the afternoon and offering seated yoga and tai chi. Have to shoot out right afterwards as have a class at the spa at 3pm. Good news, my yoga for cancer class has received funding for a year - yay! Happy hump day everyone.

Great news, Lilac!

I subbed again today (I'm filling in for the same teacher all week so am being the 'real teacher' with all the correcting, figuring out who has late work, organizing etc.). Since it was very nice out, I grabbed the puppies for a walk & then went to Dance2Fit.

Been waking up early - partly because I've been going to bed early, but going to bed early because I've been waking up early!!! What do you do for exercise at 4 or 5 am - too dark outside to walk - no exercise equipment in the house - and DH is sleeping!!! Plus no DVD player...so I guess I'll wait till 6 and pace in the house for 1/2 before I leave for work at 6:45.

Have a great day - its almost Friday!!! Bad thing is my self-evaluation is due tomorrow and I didn't find out till yesterday - it needs to be done prior to end of year evaluation and I forget when mine is!!! Best look at my work calendar.

Just put my cycling calendar together. So far eight formal events, including the Tunnel Ride that I did a couple of months ago. Fortunately, I don't have a conflict with the Yakima Canyon Ride this year, so will be doing that in mid-May. I can camp at the vineyard for free, so it should be a fun weekend. 

I have tentatively invited myself to Idaho and can't wait to do the long recreation trail there. Not to mention cycle Lopez Island again, which is glorious and fun.

So should be super-fit by the end of the summer. That's my plan. We'll see how it goes. - Claire

The heavens opened so I bagged the ride. Will do a 5k run in a bit. The time was much better spent doing a laundry detergent run at Safeway and cleaning up/re-organizing in preparation for the needlepoint rug which is coming on Monday. Just love the result!!!

I might sign up for the Tour de Lopez which is at the end of this month. 31 miles followed by a BBQ. We shall see. So many fun things to do, so little time. - Claire
