Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 13th day of May, 2015.

The sun is coming up with promises of a lovely day.

Well last night was “bootcamp”  …… my mind keeps saying you are young and “can do this” and my body says “wait a minute.”

We did circuits ….. OMG.

Oh the YING and YANG of it.

But I survived and I will admit, yes being honest here.

There were a couple of exercises okay maybe three that I modified as I did not feel that I could pull them off just yet.

But the thing is …. I am trying.

I want to get back into shape ….. have a toned tummy.

I want to know that I have a core and it is doing what it is supposed to do.

Not to find out after doing a class filled with exercises for the core that I pulled a stomach muscle(s) and had a hard time getting in and out of bed.

So lesson learned I do the class at my pace but building it up every time I go.

One of these days I will be able to do what the 30 somethings are doing.

I will continue to walk every night with Alvin and on the weekends double time.

I am going to start doing yoga on a regular basis as I have found that I am not very flexible.

Well it is time to finish getting ready for work but I just wanted to let you know that it is never too late to get your body into shape.

It will take time and patience and hard work but we can do it.

I want to have a flater tummy …… bye bye love handles.

They are not very “lovely” to me.

Time to fly.

Have a great day.

Remember walk when you can ….. do some squats ….. something but get moving.

We sit way too much ….. I know that I do.

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers ….. you rock.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the Day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of April, 2015.

It is starting to lighten outside and it is 5:48 a.m

Oh, doesn’t that sound early?

I always have thought anything before 6:00 a.m. is ultra early.

It is for me.

But I am slowly adjusting.

One day at a time.

Alvin is like me …. one day at a time.

We enjoyed a whole hour outside walking and visiting along the way.

It was great …. what a wonderful way to spend a Monday evening.

The perfect way.

What did you do last night?

I will admit that I like to relax and not make any commitments as usually I am pooped after a Monday.

But it was great being outside enjoying the warm temperatures.

I turned the “furnace” off again and it was cool, is cool in here but it warms up so much over the course of the day that I figured might as well.

Soon it will be summer anyway.

I do love those weeks when the sun is shining before 6:00 a.m. and then stays up long after we have gone to bed.

It is great on those weekends, for sure.

Well time to go and catch that bus.

Day #2 …… I do miss the carpool ….. but the walking is good for me and my “middle” …… once the mid starts to expand you have no choice but to work on it.  The older you are …. well let me just say ….. it is a bit more challenging.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bus riders ….. you rock.  Early risers and all that jazz.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to the 3rd day of April, 2015.

Today is “Good Friday.”

The office I work in is closed for today and Easter Monday but the store remains open.

Today is my second last day of work at the store for me.

Today and tomorrow will be hard as I will truly miss all of the people that I work with at the store.

The young ones all call me “Mom” or “Carol” which is nice.

There is only one employee who around my age.

Being surrounded by youth is a great thing.

Keeps you up to date with all the happenings of the world through their eyes.

I love it.

There are some of us girls who have become good friends, and we get together, and that will remain.

Some of them have moved on to other employments and such but friendship remains.

The sun is shining today and that is wonderful.

We received more of the white stuff yesterday and it is fast melting.

I wonder if the store will be busy today.

Hard to say, I guess.

Only time will tell.

Well time to hop into the shower.

I am so excited to soon have all of my evenings and weekends for my own.

Me and Alvin will be out walking in the neighbourhood catching up on the latest.

Have a great day everyone.

Special Hello to: all of my friends at the store …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 6th day of February, 2014.

Can you believe it?

Thursday again ….. didn’t we just have one.

Isn’t it great that we keep getting Thursdays.

I love Thursdays.

It might be my favourite day of the week.

Although I do love Saturdays …. for different reasons.

Do you love Sundays because you can perhaps relax and enjoy a day at home?

Do you love Mondays because it is the “first” day of the week?

Do you love Tuesdays just because you can?

Do you love Wednesdays because it is the middle of the week?

Do you love Fridays because it is the start of the weekend?

Do you love Saturdays because it is the weekend?

Well lots of reasons to enjoy each day of the week.

Whether it is for work or play …..

Each day of the week is always a good thing.

Enjoy your Thursday ….. I am certain that I will.

Special Hello to: my family back in Regina ….. miss you all ….. there are some special birthdays just around the corner ….. 🙂

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 2nd day of September, 2013.

Another breathtakingly gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I love listening to music when I am getting ready for work on the weekends.

During the week it seems I don’t think of it but on the weekends before working at the store.

It has become a ritual ….. listening to my favourite “current” songs.

I love “PayPhone” by Maroon 5 and also “Daylight”,  also “Try” by Pink, “Set Fire to the Rain” and “Someone Like You” by Adele and …..

Music always seems to energize me and get me in a great feeling mood.

I love the words and also the melody.

Sometimes I pick Alvin up and dance with him….

Sometimes he is okay with it other times I think he suffers in relative silence likely “thinking “Oh Momma” …..

But that is it for today ….. listen to some music and grab a partner and dance or just kick up your heels on your own.

I hope that you have a great great Monday ….. Happy Labour Day.

I also like Ed Sheeran, Mumford & Son, Terry McDermott, Cee Lo Green and the Lumineers (they are on my downloaded list that I listen to often).

Special Hello to: music lovers …..

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
