Just running by with a quick. Nothing great happening around these parts. We have had snow flurries everyday now for 5 days,have about 3" on the ground. Some parts of the state have 13" out of the same storm.Today we are finally warming up to 16 F and the sun is out and the streets are melting off. At least it looks warm out.
Sad news from my youngest daughter. She miscarried her baby on Sunday.
Dr's are hopeful that she will still be able to try again soon. She is so dissapointed. I would really appreciate any prayers you might have for her and her husband.
I am still working on those same 2 lbs. I know that soon they will just wear out and be gone for good. Right now I am down 2lbs for this month. Will be glad when this weather warms a little and I can get out and walk, I just get so bored walking inside.
Hope all of you have a great week. Today the only positive thing that I have done is eat a good breakfast, better try harder tomorrow.
Donna

Hi everyone.

Donna I'm so sorry for your daughter and her husband. Losing a baby even through miscarriage is so sad. I've had that misfortune myself many years ago and my dear friend lost her baby boy through miscarriage last summer. I'll certainly keep your family in my prayers at this time.

Well yesterday turned out to be a stellar day for me. Got in all my regular exercise and stayed well within my calorie range. Now today is another story for exercise. But I know I'll get on my bike this evening while I'm watching the news or one of my favorite shows. I really want to do my circuit workout and I should do that right now before DH puts more wood in the furnace and makes it hot as you know where.

Meowee, it's cold and sunny here too but a little warmer than yesterday. I've given up even listening to the weather unless DH or DS needs to travel on the highway so I don't know what's in store for the rest of the week.

Weighed in this morning and lost another pound. Just half pound away from my pre-Christmas weight. I'll finally get into the old fat this week.

Happy February . . . our resident rodent definitely saw his shadow.

Unfrotunately, I'm still working on the same weight level. At least no gain for the month of January.

We have no ground hogs here but lots of furry animals running about and I can assure you they all saw their shadows today. It was a lovely sunny day today but we're sure to have weeks of winter yet. I'd gladly take only 6 more weeks. Ha, ha.

I didn't get any exercise in today as I was shopping with mom and I'm all done in as far as physical excertion goes. But tomorrow I should be up to it again.

Hey everyone, I haven't deserted you honest. I am starting out February, well it's almost half over now, but I did start the month with a 1.8 lb loss since the first of the year. I have been doing pretty well with the exercise but not so good with the eating. For some reason I am in a slump again, think I need Spring to get here.
We have had some lovely weather but that is all going to come to a crashing end about midnight tonight. They just put us in a winter storm warning for 8-10" of snow and 20-30 mph winds. We had a lovely rain last week and I like that so much better, you don't have to scoop that!
Thanks for your prayers for my DD and her husband. They are doing ok just waiting for the Dr. to give them the ok to try again. But now I need prayers for my DH's brother. He just found out he has bladder cancer. We spent some time with him last weekend after he had surgery. He is so angry,but I can't blame him. He isn't even 60 yet. Life seems so unfair at times.
Enough gloom from me. Hope all of you are doing well and working hard toward your goal. Today I did a mile on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the Nu-Step. Have a good weekend and I will try to get back here sooner next time. DONNA

Good to hear from you Donna. Glad you haven't desserted the weight loss. My FIL is very sick right now too. The heart specialist told my DH's brother that he may not make it as he has so many complications. I can understand your BIL's anger. I hope he recovers and lives a long life. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

I jogged, biked and did push-ups today and I'm feeling really tired but a good tired feeling. Just ate some soup and it went down good.

Take care.
