Hard to imagine that Spring is just around the corner! At least for some of us, that is! As for me, it's snowing here and probably will for at leastanother month.

For March: It's my wedding anniversary on the 26th of this month! 16 years together, 14 married. I am an incredibly lucky lady!

This month I will:
1. Stay OP with weights 3x a week
2. Stay OP with food: 150g protein, 150g carbs, remaining frams: fat @ approx 1600-1700 calories
3. Achieve goal BF of 20%

March and April are usually the big snow months for us, here on Colorado's front range. But spring will get here, slowly but surely! I feel like I'm on a roll again now - the scale's moving down again, and clothes are fitting better. I hope you're all having a great day and getting ready for a wonderful weekend!

@Linda: I'm in NY, about 30 miles from Canadian border so Feb is our coldest month but we get snow up until....Easter. *shudders* My family used to vacation in Colorado (from Texas) every summer. It was/is beautiful!

Thanks for starting the March thread.

Mboo- happy anniversary!

I have had a long hard day. My blood pressure was really high at the surgon's office. They took it 4 times and every time they took it, it got higher. I also have a little heart murmur so he wants me to see a cardiologist before scheduling surgery. It throws my whole time line off which was a bit disappointing but that's okay. We will deal with it.

As for DH job interview, I think it went okay but they wanted him to work from 2 am until 4 or 5 pm which he declined. Disappointing but he has some other prospects.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howard goes in on Monday AM for his pacemaker!!!

Quick rundown on the last few days. H had several episodes on Tues & Wed. He transmitted his readings (via phone) to the medical co. that oversees the monitors. On Wed. AM, they called the dr. & H...they DID NOT like what they saw. Had appt. this AM. Meds are not an option for his condition. Said they'd set up surgery ASAP. They called about 4 hrs. later with date & time. We are very excited but also a little nervous.
Please keep those positive thoughts & prayers coming! I'm so glad to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've got a lot to do to prepare...mostly laundry/groceries so I can be able to take care of him & not worry about much else. ***letting out a relaxing, deep sigh***

mboo: Congrats! Happy anniversary! H & I will be celebrating 24 (thank goodness!!!) on April 1st!

petra: Best of luck with the cardiologist & your health. Take care of Y-O-U!!! I wish your hubby the best of luck on the job front!!!

FatCats: More anniversaries! Yipppee!! Congrats! Good luck on your new/improved goals.

I'm hoping that once H gets his pacemaker & the okay from his dr., I'll be able to focus on my journey. My scale has been stuck. I'm ready for things to get moving down. Anywhos...I'll probably be tied up a lot for the next few days. In the meantime BE HEALTHY!!

Here's the photos from the other day that I wanted to share:

MrsTryingAgainCongrats on the good news, at least some action, now you guys will be able to work on his recovery, best of luck with everything!

Congrats to the March anniversaries! My parents' anniversary is in March, they're at 51 years, same day as the time change, also Hagar the Horrible and Helga's anniversary (the comic strip...)

Finally had a whoosh this week, so thrilled about that and scared ****less about keeping it off...ain't that the way it goes...:smiling:

Stick with those New Year's and New Month's resolutions, we'll get there, spring's coming, time change, longer days, more daylight to be active, we'll get there!

Ticker looks great Linda

Petra~ best of luck with your surgery!

best to all

Very happy to hear the good news about the pacemaker. I'm sure it will be a huge help and ease your mind!

Had a little giggle - my dad was born in Chico, CA. I was thinking about him and there were your pictures.

I'm struggling with my Wonderslim plan. The scale's not moving after my first two weeks. Nor am I anywhere near ketosis. I'm not cheating and enjoy what I'm eating. I just would like to see some sort of change...

MrsTryingAgain- thanks for the update. Glad you got some answers. Nice pics too. Those are the kind I like to take.

Ukemama - never heard of wonder slim. I assume it is some kind of low carb diet?

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mrs.TryingAgain- So glad to hear that your husband's surgery is pushed up to Monday. He (and you) will be in my prayers. I hope this is the answer to him regaining his health. Check in when you can.

We're going out to dinner tonight. It's Restaurant Week in Denver, which means all the really nice restaurants have meals for 2 for a set price. We go every year with my brother and SIL. It will be fun, and I've worked out extra to account for the extra calories today, but I'm sure the combo of that plus PMS will have me up a couple pounds tomorrow. But I won't freak out, I will just keep swimming...

Ms Trying Again... good good good about your husband. It has to be nice to have a little bit of peace. Wishing you well with his procedure. My Dad was just released from the hospital yesterday. A week in and liver cirosous (sp) is the prognosis. I know it sounds bad. We don't really know wha is going to happen next. But I cant see anything but positive coming from this. He has already survived the unthinkable (cancer, aneurism, 3 major surgeries...) he has to an appointment with specialist... he has to get through this too. He is only 63... to young to go through this. But it is a wake up call to. Although we are not genetically related, so his issues are not passed down to me, I see what a life of not taking care of yourself can do. I want to say that I will never drink again, knowing his liver issues are directly connected to lots of it when he was younger... I won't say that I wont. I want to say that I will never eat fatty foods again yet another cause of liver issues but I won't say that either. I will just say that I will not do those things in excess ever again. I don't know I am totally rambling... I am at a loss as to what I should be thinking or saying or feeling about my dad. I am not ready to lose him. Scared out of my mind to be honest.

Got a good workout in today. 4 miles in 1 hr 8 min. Pretty good .Was supposed to be an endurance walk/run. Felt great.

Thanks everyone! I got just a few mins before I have to get to work, but I thought I'd stop by. This is kind of like a small haven in a storm. It's all because of you guys.

sept: Ramble away! I've been down the road your on more than once. It's never easy. Be with your dad as much as you can. Trust me, you'll never, ever regret it. My dad is one person I miss sooo much at this time of year. His birthday would have been on Mar. 8th, his & Mom's anniversary on Apr. 24th, then the anniversary of his passing on the 28th. Give lots & lots of . I've got many of them cyberly for you!!!

Linda: I LOVE the idea of restraurant week. Wish they'd do something like that around here! There are a few place I'd love to try, but NOT at full price. Hope you had some awesome eats!

ukemama: Your dad was born here? Butte Co. has been my family's home for going on 5 generations. I guess once you get rice field water & dirt in your blood, it's a little hard to get rid of. Don't fret so much about the scales. Mine hasn't moved in months. But I do feel soo much better than I did just 3-4 months ago. I have more energy, I sleep better, so I figure the weight will come off. I'm just hoping it does so once things get settled, which will be really soon!

kelijpa: I LOVE HAGAR & HELGA!!! They remind me sooo much of H & myself! There was one strip where Hagar wanted to buy a new boat & Helga was like, "I don't think so!". Hagar went off & pouted to his friends about it. Kinda like H does when I tell him, "You really don't need yet another _______. (fill in tools, fishing gear, video game, etc.) I ALWAYS read Hagar, it's one of my all time favorite strips.

Gotta run. Work is calling. More laters! BE HEALTHY!

@MRS: So glad to hear from you- I was starting to worry!! And with great news, too! We'll all be with you in thoughts on Monday!

Sep2012: Sorry to hear of your struggles with your father. Glad you were able to find a bit of positive in it, though. It reminded me of one of the guys around here. He has a tagline in his signature that reads, I eat whatever I want, just not how much I want.

Lifted weights this am. I burned 750 calories, but wasn't really feeling it. But I did it anyway! So I'm giving myself the win. Now I'm off to exchange a pair of capris I ordered online - they are too big! WooHoo!
