I like dogs, but am more of a cat person. Right now I have one, a grey tabby named Tiger.

Lorrie, I am not sore today. But I have taken other classes from the same instructor we had and I'll tell you my abs hurt for several days afterwards. I think she took it easy on us last night. :-)

I love dogs but can't stand walking them in bad weather, rain is okay but snow and ice - no so I won't get one.  I have a cat, orange tabby named Garfield.  He's 4 and a big baby.

Don't know about exercise tonight but have to run errands before Bible Study tonight so I think that walking for about an hour will count as exercise.

Yeah Lorrie, they are actually from the same family. They're cousins :) They get along really well too. They're like buds. Every once in awhile one will get on the others nerves, but it gets straightened out pretty quick with a "time out".......LOL

The scarves were on them because we had just picked them up from their pet hotel after we came home from vacation. When they get bathed, they get a cute scarf around their neck:) Their hotel bill was just about as much as oursUndecided Next time they're going to Auntie Sharon's house in CanadaSurprised

LOL.  I know about those doggie hotel charges!  We are going out of town for a wedding this weekend so we will have our dog sitter take care of Sunny.  Very pricey.  We just boarded her for the first time over the summer and it went very well.  And a lot less expensive than the dog sitter.  The place we board her has very strict pick-up times, very early in the a.m.  We are driving home from the wedding Saturday night expecting to be home 1 a.m. or so.  An early pick-up won't work.  So....we are using our expensive dog sitter. Oh well.  

I wish we had a close relative to keep the pets!

Our hotel is the exact same way. Weekend pickups/drop-offs 8-11 am only Saturday....closed Sunday. Monday-Friday 8-11 AM and 4-6 PM....ONLY...no exceptions! Make it kind of hard, especially when we're home and they have to spend another whole day THERE!!

Yikes.........I'm not even dressed yet.

Ribs in the oven and tomatoes simmering on the stove though.  I guess I oughta mention that on the housework thread.

I will walk later (I promise) and I'm mighty impressed with your effort this morning Miss Coonie.

Sharon--ribs sound delicious!  What are you simmering the tomatoes for?

Coonie--you rock!

I have to go shopping for a dress today.  I tried a few on yesterday.  My sons said one looked like my bathrobe (not a good thing) and the other was too "busy".  Whatever!  Grrrr...  So, I'm going to try to find a sensibly priced dress for the wedding this weekend.  I just hate to spend big bucks on a dress that I'll once.  Ya know??

What a great thread!! Accountability, that is what I need.

Did five sets (12 each) of squats this am and 3 sets (12 each) of girl pushups and plan on running tonight on the treadmill. Ran 2.65 miles verly slowly Tuesday night, but was lazy last night and didn't go...UGH.

Coonie - 8.3 mile bike ride! That is great. Wow.

Love the pics of the pooches! My dog is a water dog as well and quite the swimmer. Here is a pic of him having a lazy and somewhat pampered Saturday morning.

Welcome Raye!

Your dog is a cutie.  I love his face!

You have a great workout routine!  Do you always run on the treadmill or do you run outside too?  And everyone needs a night off once in a while.

Hi Lorrie!!

Thanks for the warm welcome! Yes, my dog is a sweetheart - choc Lab, 5 years old. Used to be a little devil when he was younger, but has mellowed out nicely.

I er run on the treadmill and outside, but to be honest - I haven't been running very consistently since my dx three years ago (i.e., my run Tuesday night was my first in two weeks). Used to run almost every day: outside in the summer, treadmill in the winter, but since dx, I just haven't had much motivation - something I am trying to get back, but it's so hard.

Good morning, everyone!

I went to pilates this morning.  I take a semi private class once a week - today we did a lot of leg work.  My hip is complaining, but it was sore before the class.  I just popped a couple of ibuprophine.

 I am supposed to go climbing tonight.  If my hip doesn't feel better, I will take it easy.   Sigh...

Lorrie, today the weather was absolutely picture perfect.  DH and I got SO much done outside.  Yes, the evenings are cooler but the maple leaves are at their peak of beauty for this Thanksgiving weekend.  Where do you 'hail' from?

Oh Raye..........Lorrie kicked my sorry posterior (a.k.a. butt) out the door yesterday.........AND I got rained on.  But was so glad I did it.  Thx Lorrie.
