So I am here starting my promise to myself to blog daily about the exercise I have completed for the day. I am looking to lose 50 - 70 pounds and I need to get serious. I am totally convinced that my health is based on my being successful in this decision.
Today I took Jasper, my dog for a 30 min walk. Unfortunately because I walk with a cane I could only walk so far but I did try to walk as brisk as possible for me.After my walk I stayed out in the yard and put my bird feeders back out since the threat of bears should be gone, I hope Talked with my new neighbor for about 1/2 hour and played with their dog Sam and let jasper get to know Sam also so they can be playmates.
Finally came in and now I am doing some laundry and a little bit of house work. Not going to do too much more because I am still recovering from being sick over the weekend and I feel pretty wiped out right now.
Oh. I forgot, when I came in I spent about 10 minutes dancing to a couple of good songs, including Light my fire by the doors. that was fun
Until tomorrow, Keep moving and please help and support me. this is important to do
Forgive me if I have already told you and I am repeating this. I wanted to tell you about a new addition to my family her name is Gabby and she is my new parakeet. My beautiful daughters and their wonderful DH's and my 7 grandchildren got her for my christmas present this year. they knew that I have wanted a parakeet for a long time now.. My Mom had one and taught it to talk I am hoping that I will be able to do the same. I am really enjoying her and she is a joy to watch. she seems to be adjusting well though she is very flighty when I try to handle her. I also have a jealous Maltese dog who is jealous when I give Gabby some attention but Jasper (my dog) does seem to be getting use to Gabby.
I named my bird Gabby because the name means God is my strength and it is also named in honor of congresswoman Gabby Gifford whom I have great admiration for
I can't begin to thank my family for her. they bought the cage, the food, litter for the bottom of cage, treats, toys everything I would need to give her a good home and they gave me a gift certificate so I could go to the pet store the day after Christmas and get her. My DH brought me the next day to pick her out
I am going to try to post a picture of her here, hope I can do it right
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart to my two daughters and their husbands. I love you all so much!!! .

Hi Everyone, If all of us would send this boy a christmas card with our prayer included in the card, he could easily reach his goal and imagine his face when he comes out of his medically induced coma. will you help. Address is below.
On the news tonight, they interviewed the family of a 14 year old autistic boy who is currently in a medically induced coma. His favorite chore at home was opening the mail and before the surgery he was supposed to have, he told his family that he wanted to get over 300 Christmas cards. There is even a group on Facebook trying to get these cards for him. If you are so inclined, please consider sending Chance Franck a Christmas Card. His address is as follows:
last night we ended up with 18 " of snow in NH in my town of Hopkinton. News said we broke 100 year old records for the months of October and November ( and it is not even Nov yet, I might point out) weather man would not predict is this is any sign of what our winter will be like 50/50 chnce. Temps are suppose to climb into the 50's this week so a lot of this will melt.
