I have never been one for new year's resolutions, but I have made one of a sort this year. I am resolved to visit this place (neighborhood gym) at minimum 3 days a week. I have been doing good so far, and I feel good just having made the effort to start going. I had started losing weight before the holidays, and during had gained about 4 lbs back. With the combination of cardio and weight training, I have hope the rest will drop off fairly quickly! No pain, no gain, isn't that what they say? ;oP I finally decided I needed to become a gym rat, because I like food too much to starve!!
On the way home from my workout this morning, I saw a large bird on the side of the road in my neighborhood. He was larger than I was used to seeing in that area, too large for a robin or a mocker. I slowed to get a closer look and saw it was a hawk! When I slowed, that alarmed him a bit and he flew up to a small pine right by the side of the road. :)

After my wildlife shoot, I had to run to the store. I'm having a "Tastefully Simple" party tonight, and I had to go pick up the keg...
LOL, those that know me are laughing, and those that don't, I'm a good Baptist teetotaler, this is for the beer bread :)

Always good to have a goal, it helps one to stay focused. Your doing great, so keep up the good work. As for the bird - it's the "Hawk". If I don't see one everyday I do hear it. Which is probably why I don't have any smaller birds in my yard.
I am now feeling the need to get on that treadmill!
