Well the snow stopped, the wind died down and the plows were out, so we were able to get out to visit sister in law and pick up our gifts that she had brought back from home with her.
We didn't take a picture of our oil painting that mil did yet but when we do I will put it on here to show you, It is fantastic and if it is as close to a cabin in the woods then it is what it is.
Did take pic of the snow though. Lots of it around, can send some to those that haven't seen snow before lol
lol Enjoy the snow if you don't have any! LOL
HUGS will try to get the other picture taken.

OMG it is so cold. Bitter cold. Allie has only gone on 2 walks, and otherwise hubby let her out in back yard. She loves it but man it is cold. Busses off road, most stores closed a real blizzard like when we were kids. Well not that much snow yet.
So obviously we didn't get to sister in laws to pick up our gifts she brought home from hubbys family. That's okay it will be there when we can get out of our street. He will be excited to use the snowblower, was too windy to bother today and it hasn't stopped snowing.
I am an AUTUMN OAK!!! one of the teams on beyond the scale team. Smallish group and hope to get to know them all and support and have fun. I am sure we will reach our goals or try hard anyway.
Been doing well on my NO S, but today has been harder, see stuff and think hmm, just one, then say NO. so far so good. I have had tea, and we both went down to dads area, and I fell asleep in his recliner. lol Didn't do much, a good day to rest, relax and just BE.
All ready having problems sticking to doing my exercises. They aren't hard, I had all the time in the world today but nope haven't done them yet. It is very cold upstairs and that was my excuse very feeble as I can turn up the heat, or bring up one of the portable heaters we have on to augment our heat. yea it is that cold.
Well since they are easy and simple I still can get them done without bothering my sleep.
OFF I GO!!!

BALANCE - mind - body - spirit. That is what it is all about isn't it. This life is best lived if we can find a balance between our healthy minds, bodies and spirits. So for 2014 my word is BALANCE.
I know many ways for MIND balance, not that I am great at any of them but do practise some.
I journal, I art journal, I write gratitudes. I try to meditate and before I go to bed I do deep breathing and some times progressive muscle relaxation. If I can't sleep I do imagry meditation. So my other issue is worry.... stressful worry. but I am doing better at not letting it overtake my day. Yes it creeps in nearly daily and always after info or dealing with lawyer issues but I can't let this get the best of me. I have gained nearly 5 or more lbs since getting a lawyer on Nov 21. sigh. So this has to be beaten and know that she will help me but that doesn't mean I can't help myself.
BODY balance. I have a hard time being consistent here. I have a few ideas going on in my brain right now. Back to Basics. drink my water, move and eat clean and PROPER portions. Will I be able to do it as I truly feel I am a carb sugar addict. I do for me there is no just a bit, or moderation when it comes to toast and sweets. pasta, potatoes no prob.
The other is I did well when I was on the plan the natuopath suggested. Gluten sugar and dairy free. But found that so hard to keep on and ended up slowly getting worse and now am back to eating whatever, still not a ton of processed but too much not good stuff. So do I try that again, she said when I said that is hard and not sure if that is lifestyle - she said my family eats like that all the time.... you choose to make it a lifestyle. She is right. so do I.
the other is NO S. which Id id before but srayed. It is no sweets, no sugar no seconds on all days that dont have an S. so eat properlyl and clean on the weekdays and don't go nuts on the weekends but have a treat. hmmm makes sense and I didn't do too bad.
Any thoughts from those that know me... lol will be appreciated.
SPIRIT well I am more spiritual than religious, we have been burned by organized religion and not that keen on it. If I could find a small friendly church again I may go. But my spritual health is similar to my mind. Try to find a calm, peaceful inner sanctuary where I can go and just BE. talk to myself in a kind loving way. Also to have good family and friend time to make my life complete.
Now just to figure it all out and make a plan, a DO ABLE for a healthy lifetime plan. I have to get this life going, it is passing me by and I presume my knee surgery should be this summer I MUST get some wt. off before then.
I hope you can all find a plan you can work with for you and we will do great things in 2014.

Boy am getting the days mixed up with the holidays. Don't know why but seems holidays should be on weekends. But as long as I remember to go the dr, on Monday I will be fine! LOL
So had a nap for a bit, now fell less rested than before I went up to lay down. Also have heartburn and am trying to think of what I ate that made me feel rotten.Probably not enough healthy stuff and too much sugar, but really seems to be the chocolate. and lol as I wrote this dd brought in a small basket with goodies and choc covered bacon..... now immediate heatburn. lol
So now I guess I better make some supper for myself as hubby is making left overs for him. Going to be a quiet night and early evening. Hope you all had a great day and sleep well.
