I measured myself today and had actually gained inches, not a lot, but then I thought about it and realized I'd not measured in the way I had before. So when everyone's gone, I'll do it the right way..no clothes covering the areas I'm measuring...let's hope it goes down.
I've been really adhering to my diet and exercise, so I'm hoping it does go down, heck I'd measured my thigh with my jeans on, and they'd decreased a half an inch or was it an inch, I don't remember, so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.
I do hope you all have a bright and beautiful Sunday, I'm heading to bed soon, so just wanted to stop in.

I love the rainy nights.....ok, so that's a song, but still, to hear the rain on the roof is sooo soothing, they should take it and sell if to help people sleep...but then again, don't need to sell it, it's given freely. What a beautiful sound, if anything can help me sleep it's that, one of my favorite sounds.
But then to get up the next morning, have to take a Golden Retriever outside in it and then try to dry his feet and body off..that's not so much fun.
Kind of like my diet...I love the end results, but to get there, isn't the best...but then again, it's just that it takes work, determination, and well stamina, something all of us have. And just think, once you reach that goal, what a rainbow you'll have!! Yep, this is a lifelong trip, but well worth everything you see along the way. All the cool experiences, all you've learned and done, and all the wonderful people you meet make this the BEST experience of your life and one you'll never forget.
So stick to it, keep on moving forward and if you stumble, so what, get up and move forward again, you'll get there, I can guarantee it!!
Besides, we're all here for, and with, you, you're not alone EVER. I think I'll call this my RAINBOW JOURNEY from now on, I like the sounds of that!
Well have a wonderful day everyone, and enjoy YOUR Rainbow Journey...it's a beautiful trip if you look at it with a different point of view!

Wow, my blog is working again, first time, I feel great...not just about that, but everything. I'm feeling so much better being able to help others, something I've always loved doing. Sometimes I wish I could do more, but I do what I can.
Actually vacuumed the computer today, it was making a weird noise and all, so took it apart and vacuumed the inside..wow..it really needed it and since doing that, my computer has been running so quietly...I don't remember the last time it was that quiet, and I'm loving it.
Oh, word of the day? LOVEHUG, it's when you put your arms around yourself and give yourself a HUGE HUG, because you deserve it.
Have a beautiful day, everyone, and thanks for coming by, it's always a pleasure to have company!

Wow, sore body, but that's good, right? I still love the exercises, though I was trying to figure out a way out of them because my muscles are sore, but then again, I figured, if I don't do them I'll feel guilty, so I did them.
Anyway, got off subject there, I think the worse part is the headache I have now, I'll wait and see if it goes away. OH I found some lefse recipes and one of them is identical to Mom's, so now I can use it to make lefse sometime. Dad and I used to LOVE our lefse Christmas dinner, with homemade veggie soup (yep, potates quartered, rutabagas (mine and Dad's fav), carrots, roast beef, onions, DELICIOUS, and the best part...we had Lutefisk. That was our Norwegian Christmas supper, and well, we ended up stopping with the Lutefisk because Dad, Mom, and I were the only ones who liked it. I miss that and now that Dad's gone, I don't think I'll ever get to have it again.)
Back to the good things...it's beautiful weather outside, though I'm afraid to see all this snow melt, it'll be so messy outside. I think we have at least 15" out there, put it this way, my daughters golden retriever went outside and the snow went over his side!! That's deep, this dog is 98 pounds, so he's not a small dog!
Well, back to SP for some fun, have a FUNDERFUL DAY!

I won 500 spark points that I could use on myself. After looking everything over, I decided to save some of them to give others things, but I bought myself a red rose.
My Dad always gave my Mom a single red rose to show his love for her, so I did this to show my love for myself, my confidence that I'll succeed in this trail I'm taking, and I'll never give up, because my Dad never gave up before he passed away, and his strength is what continues to give me strength. I thank you, Dad, for that, and thank you for the memories you've left us with, all the laughter, joking around, teasing, it's been carried on by all your children and grandchildren.
This morning just as I was waking up, I looked over to the wall as my eyes opened, and there was a round ball of light, only there for a second, but it was against the outside wall, so there's no way the sun (which wasn't shining) could have been there. I like to think it was Dad watching over me, like he used to call me when no one else was home, to make sure I'd not had an insulin reaction. Thank you, Dad, for everything you've passed on to us, I know you remain with us because you are a part of us.
Anyway...that's my blog for today, not much more to say right now. Have a great day.
