SNOW!!!

Sunday, March 09, 2008


I've never seen so much snow that has fallen all at once in my life! I was just amazed that it could snow for so long! I've put some new photos in my gallery showing the snow for those of you who didn't get to experience it. Thoughtful, eh?

    WOW....THAT's a TON of snow! WE haven't seen anything like that since about 96 in this area....we NEVER get that much normally, ocean temps keep it out of our backyards....I'm almost jealous. Great pic of it! Hope you are doing well. Spring is a wekk away....I will be glad for the warm weather. It cheers me up. April 8th I get my knee fixed....and then I can start on the Humera... I hope it works for me. I'm having a difficult time with my joints right now... Keep in touch!

    It looks like this picture was taken out of my window. I'm from Hamilton and we certainly got a lot of snow over the last couple of days. But today is a bright sunny day today so it a great day for everyone to get out and clean away all the snow.

My Weight Loss Ticker

Saturday, March 08, 2008

I've changed my start weight to the weight that I was when I initially started trying to lose weight back in 1998 to remind myself how far I've come. Last Saturday when I had to weigh myself for the start of my challenge, I was over what I started at when I joined SparkPeople last fall so I had to change my start weight to reflect that (which I think is unreasonable since last Saturday's weight wasn't my start weight) so 264 reflects my true start weight and so that's why I've changed it. So, there!

    Sounds good to me! We all need reminders of how far we've come so that we can continue.

It's been awhile...

Saturday, March 08, 2008

Since I returned from vacation, winter is feeling very long. We've had several snowstorms and another one started yesterday and is expected to last until tonight. We're supposed to get 10 to 15 inches in total. Personally, I don't really care because it's Saturday and I don't absolutely, positively need to go out . But my husband is working today and my dad and my sister and her family are supposed to be flying to Italy tonight so this weather will definitely affect them!

This week, I also started a challenge on my Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis team. I've never run a challenge before but the people in it seem to be enjoying it. And, I'm learning some stuff as it goes along too! I also started a new post called Inquiring Minds Want to Know and it's pretty interesting, too.

And, today is the first weigh-in of the challenge. The bad news is, I didn't lose anything. The good news is, I didn't gain anything. It was a challenging week for me food-wise and exercise-wise. I had two meals out at restaurants and I didn't feel well enough to exercise a few of the days. I also attended a big meeting on Monday where not only did I have a doughnut, but I had a muffin, too! Hopefully, next week will be better.

  BKWERM's ~ That's good you stayed the same.
We all can't be Loosers every week!
Though trying is the best solution to shrinking!

Hola

Sunday, February 17, 2008

I've returned from the sunny south. Overall, it was a good trip. The pool was great. The sunny days were lovely. The food was good (I probably gained 10 pounds). I'd rate the resort itself about 4 stars. The room, though, I would only rate 2 stars. First of all, it was infested with mosquitoes and we had to wear bug repellent when we went to sleep. The second problem was that the beds were rock hard (I called it my concrete slab) and thirdly, the bedsheets and bedspread had blood stains on them. I was told that the stains were old and they had been laundered prior to my using them but still...

We did a cultural tour of Santa Domingo because my mother-in-law wanted to but the bus trip was 3 hours each way and it was very hard on my knees as there was no leg room whatsoever (my left knee has been very sore since then). The tour itself involved two attractions that involved lots and lots of stairs so I skipped those and waited for everyone while they toured those places.

I read 3 books and got a nice golden tan. My mother-in-law and I got along fairly well with much laughter each day.

It's nice to be home so that I can see my husband but the weather's not very nice. But, I have a three-day weekend before I have to return to work so I guess I shouldn't complain.

I hope everyone here is doing well!

  Hi BKWERM!

I am going on a cruise in a few months.
I wondered myself how much sleep I will get on a ship. Hope it isn't like a berth on a train! I can recall many a rock hard flat pillows and rock hard beds in many so called good hotels. Thank goodness it is only a 5 day cruise.

Can't imagine a hotel/motel supplying stained sheets, how gross!

    We were gone at the same time. I did a Disney cruise and gained 3 pounds. It could have been much worse.

Hope your knees are recovering.

I'm going on holidays...

Thursday, February 07, 2008

I'm leaving for my vacation to the Dominican Republic tonight so I won't be on the boards until next Friday (Feb. 15th) at the earliest. If anyone from the Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis team needs anything, create a post and maybe one of the other members can help you. And, if any new members join, perhaps you could welcome them since I won't be able to do it. Thank you and take care.
