Good Friends

I'm finally catching a bit of a break at work.  I'm still getting some overtime but it's not near as crazy as it has been for the last 5 weeks or so. 

I had the chance to meet up with Tina from Fat Girl Dives In last night for dinner.  We went to Ted's Montana Grill.  It was fabulous.  I really enjoyed my visit with her...an hour of laughs, good stories and catching up....and a huckleberry margarita might have been involved. ;)

It was a really good time, and something we don't do near often enough.  I need to work on that.  Time with friends is important....and time with friends who are so motivated towards getting healthy is even MORE important. 

I'm supposed to get together with my good friend Kim this coming Sunday for lunch and I'm so looking forward to it.  Kim walked a HALF MARATHON a couple of weekends ago up in Nashville, TN....all by herself (a friend of hers backed out)...and I'm just so incredibly proud of her.  I can't wait to see her medal!

Also, Tina asked me last night if I still planned to walk the Half Marathon in Savannah this November.  She said she's definitely doing it.  I would certainly like to, but I know you can't play around with this stuff.  You have to actually train.  I was telling Tina how good she looked yesterday and that all that yoga and cardio she's doing must be paying off.  She said she works out 7 days a week and gets up at 5am to do so.  I was thinking that I already have to get up at 4:30am just to get to work by 6am...getting up at 3:30am to exercise first?  Hmmmm.   lol

We'll see what happens.  Hopefully I'll get my act together and find a way to MAKE time to get my buns in gear.  I would love to walk the Half in Savannah with 2 such good friends as Tina and Kim.  It would make for a fabulous girl's weekend, don't ya' think?  :)


  1. I think it would be a lot of fun! You should do it. Seriously. Plus there's a medal at the end. ;-)

  2. Girl, I am so in!!! (You knew that already!!!) And to think that I have two totally inspirational women there with me...can't think of a better treat!!!! (Plus, there's the bonus of just being in Savannah...and let's not forget the swag bag, t-shirt, and MEDAL!!!). Awesome times ahead, I assure you!!!

    Cannot wait!!!!

  3. That does sound fun. It would be great for you to be able to work this in. You need the fun! Good luck

  4. You're the sweetest Tammy. I promise that fitting it in will give you the energy you need to fit it all in. It doesn't seem like it at first but it will happen ;)
