Friday was my WI day... STS!
I usually blog that day but it all just got away from me.
Today (Sunday) I am up early.. not tired so taking time to blog.
Staying the same frustrates me - It is like gaining.. I work at losing ... now saying that - I am not strict strict with my eating.. I try to stay within my calorie range --I do... I try to eat loads of healthy veggies and fruits.. no problem .. I eat a lot of chicken... fish -- I love ...
My workouts consist mainly walking .. and doing a weight routine ...keeping these old arms from sagging..lol-- not me... only lift 3 to 5 lbs now..
on to happy things
both my grand children graded in Karate on Saturday .
look to right you see his little sister -- lol
Markus had to break a board... this is easy for him now... When he does his next exam he has to break a brick... oh my!
He just got his 10th star.. Next he will be grading .. at provincial level for his probationary black belt... right now he is a junior black belt... This means .. he has achieved a black belt but is not old enough to have a 1st degree black belt... Once he gets his probationary black belt -- Then he studies to get his (adult -- age 15) 1st degree black belt...
Markus has been doing karate since he was 4 years old.. so a long road..He is now 10 years old.
receiving his 10th gold star... goes on his black belt..
Now his little sister Amelia graded for her green belt... oh my...
Amelia and Sensei Steve ... he is the owner of the Dojo and did the grading..
It was for grandma watching ... nervous and a little stressful... watching them go through their moves They both did great... and advanced so I am happy for them both.
Today my dil's friends are coming over to set up the house for a surprise birthday for her..
She is at work today .. so think she will be so shocked coming home to find out she for once got the surprise ... Usually she is the one who does the party ..
all in all a busy weekend ... but oh so fun with family...
