I've saved, backed up multiple times, and printed off all of my pictures of my late DH but came across a new one tonight...one my friend had of him. Oh what a new picture can do and conjure up! I smiled until I started feeling the urge to throw my phone across the room. Then I saved, backed up, and saved again. For your viewing pleasure and mine...
He was such a ham!

For awhile I've kept all of his pictures in a memory box, with only a select few in frames around the house. In the first couple of months after he died I looked at them so much, even carried a photo album in my purse. Soon it became harder to look at them, so I stuffed them away in boxes and closets. There's been a few times I've gotten them out and it just turned into a big sob fest. I knew one day I would enjoy them again and have been looking forward to the day I can look through them and smile without any tears. I'm pleased to announce that I tried pulling them out again and SMILED! I didn't try to push myself by looking through a lot of them, but hey...it's a baby step!
I gather a lot of strength from my children too. I wanted to share something my daughter told me tonight. It was her big night, her 1st grade play! She was super excited and was asking me how many people from her family were going to come and watch. I started naming off myself, her aunt, her brother, grandma, and grandpa. "So that makes five," I said. She was very quick to correct me and say, "Six! Because Daddy will be watching too!" Such a young, wise soul...I shook my head in agreement, smiled and said, "You're right, 6!"

Well last week started off well, down another 2 lbs, even with TOM, so I was happy about that. Then since all the green beer I drank on Wed., (oops!) I've had trouble getting back on track. I was surprised to see that I had maintained my weight atleast as of yesterday morning, so I think I'll stop beating myself up for all of my oopsies the past few days.
I haven't logged on to Spark people this last week either, been kinda slackin in every way. I think I really need the motivation I get from logging on to here, so from here on out I'm going to add it to my goals of the day. Not that I don't want to log on!! Just that I've found myself so busy at work and at home that I just simply didn't have time. But I'm gonna make the time, and make it a point to log on, get back on track....and to SHOW MARCH WHO'S BOSS!
Thanks to a very motivating Spark friend, I've decided to join her challenge and "Show March Who's Boss." These are my goals for the rest of the month:
1. Water, water, water! atleast 80 oz a day!
2. No fast food for lunch. (Even though I've made healthy choices these are still pretty heavy in calories.) To the salad bar I go...yum!!
3. Sit ups and push ups every night and to open my dvd bought a week ago and DO IT!
4. No eating after 9:00 p.m.
5. No eating over 1200 calories. I need to stay on the low side of the calories this week, since last week I stayed on the high end. My metabolism should be throughly confused!
Feel free to join our challenge!
