I did go back to the Body Pump class yesterday and will go again tomorrow. I didn't want to throw up after yesterday's class, which I'm assuming is an improvement. I'm not sore today like I was the day after last week's class, which again should be an improvement. I'm actually enjoying the class. I feel like I'm getting stuff accomplished without having to bounce all around the room and get all out of breath and yucky stuff like that. I looked in yesterday on what I assume was a class similar to Tae-Bo and quickly decided I would never attend that one! Good grief!! I do have more energy on those days when I get up and work out. Strange how that works - you spend more energy, yet end up with more energy. How is that possible? Don't know. Don't really care. I'll just keep it up. My husband even said I sounded "more peppy" on the phone on the days I work out. Hmmm. I just had to keep repeating to myself "bathing suit in July! Bathing suit in July!" And I emailed a friend yesterday with the internal dialog that was going on in my mind during the hellish move of the lunge - which should be banned from the universe if you ask me..."God help me! Wait a minute. Does God really want me in this much pain? Surely not. Should I even be praying for God to help me do something that I'm sure he doesn't want to see me do? I don't think so."

We're gonna try again for our garage sale this weekend. I hope the weather cooperates and that people are out in droves. We've got some GREAT stuff for a garage sale, so I hope to attract the bargain hunters! All pray for a nice weather day.... and maybe a little sun so I don't look like such an albino.

Speaking of albino, I'm currently reading The DaVinci Code. I don't make a lot of time to read and when I do it's usually right before bed and so I don't get much read before falling asleep, so it's taking me a while to get through this book. My friend just read it recently and said it starts getting controversial at about page 250 (we bought the same book on the same day). Well I was really actually enjoying the book and getting into the suspense of it all and then....... I read page 250. From that point on, I have to say, it's made me a little edgy. Up until I got into the real controversial stuff, I was all for seeing the movie, just because it was such a good read. Then I hit the part where the guy starts saying "The Bible isn't a fax from heaven" and so on..... Oh my. I got a little uncomfortable, to say the least. I'm interested to see how it turns out. I'm hoping to have it finished by the weekend, but we'll see.

My kitchen is finished (mostly) and I'll post pictures soon. I like how it turned out! It's like I have a whole new kitchen! With that and my newly poured patio with my semi-new patio furniture that has been residing in my garage since the after summer sale of 2004, I'm a new woman! Maybe after the garage sale, I can actually park in the garage! What a concept!!!

I'm teaming up with a friend and having a garage sale this weekend too! Hopefully I can earn enough to have some to spend at the HarBer Meadows garage sale in a few weeks! Ha!

I am just too lazy to do a garage sale. It all just goes to charity. Kudos to you... way too much work!

Can't wait to see the kitchen :)
