For my BLC-18 team I have to blog about what I want to accomplish this round. What will I be focusing on during this 12-week challenge.

I want to accomplish meeting my goal weight, 98 lbs. (I'm only 4'8"), I want to tone my underarms, abs and thighs. I want to eat more freggies.

1) I will exercise at least 30-45 min a day, some days more.
2) I will do strength training for what was mentioned above every other day.
(arms one day, legs next, and abs everyday)
3) I'm not much of a freggie eater but I will try to eat at least one freggie a day. (I'm a member of the Picky Eaters Team).
4) I want to work on straightening up the spare bedroom so it looks like a bedroom. Okay that might be off subject, but it really needs work.

I used to have a goal to be able to do a split, but that isn't going to happen....although, Priscilla Presley did it on Dancing W/The Stars.

Auld Lang Syne!!!!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Happy New Year everyone!


"Auld Lang Syne" English Translation (minimalist)
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?


For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine† ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.




Auld Lang Syne literally means 'old long ago':

Should old friends be forgotten
and never remembered
Should old friends be forgotten
and the days they shared together

For days now in the past, my dear
For days now in the past
We'll drink a toast of kind remembrance
For days now in the past

You can pay for your pint tankard
and I will pay for mine
We'll drink a toast of kind remembrance
For days now in the past

We two have run about the hillsides
and pulled wild daisies
but now we are far apart in distance
From those days now in the past

We two have paddled in the stream
from morning untill noon
but oceans now lie between us
since those days now in the past

So take my hand, my trusty friend
and give me your hand
and we will take a hearty drink together
In memory of those days now in the past

    I always wondered about the words. I think most of us read our own meaning into the song...thinking about toasting to the past and honoring the present. But it's always interesting to know what the composter was thinking when the original lyrics were written.
Thank you for sharing.
Happy New Year!

    Oh, Courti!! ::squishes & squeezes:: THANK YOU sooo MUCH for sharing this song of BEAUTY tonight!! I *love* this song & I *loved* your choice of singer!! Her voice makes it MORE than just words. There's *soul* in her song!! You know how most people can't wait to see the disco ball drop in Times Square- - - well- - - Atlanta now has- - - a PEACH!! emoticon That's right Courti, dearest, we will drop- - - the peach!! hahahahaha!! ::hugs n' kisses:: yer' Annie

Note: It's actually Atlanta’s 23rd Annual Peach Drop so it's not all that 'new' but compared to New York's... we're talkin' pretty new!! December 31, 1907, was Times Square's 1st ball drop.

Into the New Year We Go

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Who is that creeping into my new year? Is it more pounds, chocolate bars and ice cream, inches and tight clothes?

No! I don't make resolutions, because I never keep them, so my New Years PLAN is to eat healthier than I am now and to do a certain amount of cardio and strength a day.

I know there will be days of eating the wrong things, because dh isn't making the same plans and....okay, I give into temptation.

I did get him to agree to making out our weekly menu, so we can schedule some healthier days and eating out days.

Okay, this is a year old, but it still applies:

Good news on my sil Jill

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Thank you so much for your prayers because they are working!!!!!

Jill called to say her doctor called her tonight with the test results. No more cancer in her liver and significant improvement in her bones.

The doctor doesn't want her on the old chemo and wants her to start hormone treatment. She goes to see the doctor on Jan. 6.

I know it was the prayers that did it. Please keep praying for her. Thank you all so so much.

We're all so ecstatic!

Friday, December 16, 2011

Jill went to her doctor today. She will have a test later this month. This chemo is affecting her walking, she has
Neuropathy in her legs, gets dizzy when she walks sometimes. They want to see about another type of chemo. I believe the test is on the 23 of Dec. then she'll see the doctor next month. She won't have any cheno until they decide what to do. She does have pain pills, in the meantime.
