We try and wrap up whatever we bought and let Mom give to us later. Otherwise, we forget what presents are for!!

But it works well that way.

Not happy about it, but only gained 1 lb this month with Mom in hospital for 3 weeks....... I guess it could have been worse, but I am not proud of it, anyway. I need to get really serious about losing some weight. Man, wish I knew what would keep me on track. The only thing to do that is me, and I have proved to be very incompetent in this area.

I have found that guilt isn't a good motivator for me. It takes something else. Still waiting to find that something else......

Mom is home and doing as well as we can expect. She waited too long, so we will see how things go. But it really messed with my eating.

The weather has been so crappy and rainy lately we have not gotten outside in over a week! Not too many nice days left though! Stop raining!!!!

The kids and I were trying to think of outdoor activities we can do outside for not too much $$$ after the snow comes. Thinking cross country skiing but think I will try to rent skiis before investing in buying us all some!

Hope you guys had a great week!

Got a full weekend planned around here Too much to do and too little time!!! And truthfully I just want a weekend of nothing!


Think I will also give the CAD a serious look again and start that back up now that we sort of have a handle on home life with me going back to work full time. I might be able to find a smidge of time to devote to diet again

Hi...sorry I'm been MIA. My sweet 6 year old shared his cold with all of us and work has been a little crazy! Working from home while taking care of everyone made this mamma a little frazzled...LOL. I love my kiddos dearly, but I'm so glad they are in school today!

Isn't that the truth!

Hubby is making dinner tonight. I think he feels bad for me because of last weeks craziness. No arguments from me

I used to bowl ....... and I was pretty good at it
but I throw a 16# ball, and got to where if I bowl, my fingers tingle and buzz for days...... so the choice was to quit bowling or get surgery on an elbow.

I don't need surgery yet.......

But I do miss it sometimes.

to your DD. My oldest turned 9 in July. It does go way too fast. I told all three "No more growing up, you're making mommy sad"

Karen - My son loves to bowl! He is the one with special needs, and bowling is the one thing that will keep his attention for more than 5 mins. He watches the pros on youtube and copies them. So cute! I'd love to get him involved in the special olympics bowling league, he'd have a blast.

Well back to work for me Have a good day!

So far today, has gone well. Will see what scale says tomorrow.
Awards banquet for Palomino Assn (horses) tomorrow. DD won a saddle, so going for barbecue. Probably skip BF so I don't worry about eating a big lunch. Then behave for supper...... DD said I was reserve hi point in something, so wait and see. Not going to worry about it til tomorrow.

Ok, I am going to try very hard this week.

BF will be bacon only. Coconut oil in 1 coffee each morning.
Nothing except water for the entire week. Only snacks will be roasted almonds.
Also jog 10 minutes each day.

These are my goals for this week. Weighed in 193 this morning. See what the week does.

Anyone else want to post weekly goals and how we do on them?

Yup I will

Hmmm.... let me think on it a second though! You sprung this on me!


It will have to all be diet related, there is no way I can do any exercise! My back is messed up still!


Ok I think the best thing for me is probably do a bit of a kickstart. I will go old school induction for the next week. Maybe even two to get these sugar cravings under control!

No we went out to dinner tonight and I didn't even cross my mind! Didn't even realize I had messed up till later tonight. Oh well. I did skip dessert and got a fruit plate instead so that has to count for something right???
