2014 was a year full of ups and downs - emotionally as well as on the scale. I ended the year at goal but I didn't see that number as often as I wish I had. 2015 will be different - which is something of a non sequitur - but it is nonetheless true. The Big Picture Goal is to begin each month within my target range. The supporting cast for the Big Picture will be worked out and shared on my blog over the coming months but it will surely include healthy food, reasonable portion sizes, delightful ...

I ended the year at goal but I didn't see that number as often as I wish I had. 2015 will be different - which is something of a non sequitur - but it is nonetheless true. The Big Picture Goal is to begin each month within my target range. The supporting cast for the Big Picture will be worked out and shared on my blog over the coming months but it will surely include healthy food, reasonable portion sizes, delightful exercise, enough sleep and some deep prayer. Wow - this already sounds like a fantastic year! Hope the same for all who read this.

You have to tell the person and have them sign up on the site. Which she gladly did LOL then it sends her a request to accept. It charges my credit card each week that I don't hit the mark, and they get one pay out at the end, they can either request a check in the mail or have it transferred via pay pal. The site takes one dollar for each transaction, so each week I mess up I lose 10 and she gets 9 of the 10 which I thought was okay. When I read the fine print about the charities I want to say the website took 50% which I thought was ridiculous and if that was the case I'd donate the money to charity on my own not through them. I am determined to make sure that was the first and last 10 bucks I lose LOL.

Hi Bess, thanks for the workout clothes goodie. You know I need a push to buy new duds. Ha ha!!! I'm humming with exercise. Walked 5 miles today. So BEAUTIFUL.

You and I need plans to see one another soon, but we are in Alexandria for next 10 days for a wedding over the weekend.

Hope all is well you way. Love your 'wallpaper' on your page!

xo, Toni

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your budget proposal is approved in its better form. That is always my least favorite part of the job. The very first year I was hired, we asked for a decent increase and the city council was split. The mayor had to break the tie and he went our way...probably because we had Friends of the Library filling the council chambers and stretching down the stairs to the street! But I was shaking in my little 24-year-old newbie shoes!

Hope you're day is awesome!
