That month flew by! I can't believe that it is March 5th. I have to say I just stayed the same with my weight this month. Exactly the same which is better than a gain! ;O)
I must admit I have not been doing as well of late with my water and that is a goal again to get back on track. Maybe I will even throw in some exercise.... I don't know why I think of it as such work when I know how much better I feel when I do it.
Love and luck to all, Nancy

Another Week!

I do so love the weekend. It is the only time that I get the chance to really sit down and read any blogs or updates. My Angie will be coming to town on Monday and I am excited to meet with her for lunch in Layton. Mindy maybe you could join us. The only thing that would make it complete would be if Jade was there as well. :O)
As a side note from last weeks blog...I left the earplugs in the car at the concert by mistake! It turned out we had great seats and not as loud as I anticipated. Can I just say that the four 'bad' drunks sitting/trying to stand in front of us were NOT a plus! But we had a great time, and that was what really matters.
Spring has peeked a time or two. YEA!!!
Great week to all, Nancy

Another Week...

I cannot believe that another week has flown by. My husband and I are going to see Blue Oyster Cult and Foghat tonight. (I have my earplugs packed!)
Mindy I saw this picture on your blog last week and I have to tell you that I am struggling not to get the hair cut!
I haven't done much for exercise but I am keeping up the water. I am so proud of Mindy. She is doing so well. I need to use her as my example but realize that I just need to continue to do this for me. Have a great week! Nancy

Another Week...

It is a horrible thing to live your life so anticipating and looking forward to the weekend but I DO!!! It was a crazy hectic week and I actually had a minor meltdown. But here I am looking to three glorious days off and looking forward to spending much of that with family. :O)
PS, three years and 362days till I'm eligible to retire...but who's counting!
Happy hearts, Nancy

to all of you 'losers' whether big or small. Just one more step in the name of living healthy. Way to go! :O)

My own worst enemy!

Funny thing, just this last week I had a number of people comment on my pants...how loose they are becoming. I had not shared with anyone that I was working on portion size, water intake, little sugar and NO CHOCOLATE! I also had decided that I would not weigh myself but only once a month. I swear I am such a self saboteur because the minute people start commenting I crave both chocolate and wine. I use the excuse at night that 'Stress at Work Makes Me Do It' (eat chocolate and drink wine)but that is just an excuse! I did break down and weigh myself this morning and I actually do show a loss so far. It will probably take until next week to show the destruction I caused myself this week, but weighing myself gave me a huge spurt of not just try but DO! I admire all of you for 'being real' and the support you are giving. Keep up the great work. We know that it is not just a goal but a lifestyle commitment.

Things I'm Grateful for...

God, family, my job, health, friends and beautiful memories! (My aunt Martha came to visit and I had not seen her in years. She lives out of state. It was wonderful.)
I know there are many more things that I am grateful for but that is a start. I have also made a few commitments for myself along this journey, some of which are...more water, posting support, better choices in food I eat and exercise. The biggest challenges are the exercise and posting. Things are crazy at work right now. I wake at 4:15 to get to work by 5:45. Many days I don't get home until 6 or 7 and try to be in bed by 8:30. That doesn't leave much time. I am truly not complaining because I am so grateful for all that I do enjoy.
I love to hear about the 'girl scouts' in your blogs. I was a leader for 5 years. I remember the house filled with wonderful smells and cases upon cases of cookies filling the living room and stacked down the hall! Your comments bring a flood of wonderful memories and adventures that I am blessed with! I can't wait to hear the 'camp stories' this spring/summer!
To wonderful memories...keeping positive...thanks for sharing, Nancy
