The regularly scheduled broadcast will not be viewed in your area today as planned. This is due to a hiatus of approximatly 3 days while the host is hosting elsewhere. Please remain calm and do not remain in your seats! There are healthy snack alternatives in the lobby, and music for your excercising pleasure will be supplied.
Please, again, remain calm, eat well, get your excercise and your much beloved host will return on Sunday afternoon to once again, brighten your life and enhance your viewing pleasure.
Please wish her well as she embarks on 3 days of cooking for 300 racers, wives and yes, children. In the dirt. In a tent. With only a BBQ, 2 electic roaster and her assistant (and sister), TEXWIFE by her side.
While she is anticipating this to be a challenge, when asked how she could possibly accomplish her goals, she replied in typical MAMADWARF fashion, "I am a Proffessional. This is my 15th year at this event and while there may be obstacles, I have recently realized that there is nothing I cannot do", She then smiled muttering something that sounded like spark-power under her breathe and continued. " I am up for the challenge, physically, emotionally and mentally and I appreciate everyones care and support. I will be returning in a few days when I will share my experiences with my viewing audience!"
So, folks, let's be positive, be good to ourselves, throw up a prayer for our girl, Jan, and be back here on sunday, ready for a new work week ahead.

Yesterday, we went to the movies to see "You again!" (Cleva, you gotta go see! It deals with high school nemesis!!).
Anyway, there is a glass door you use to go into the lobby of the theater and we were all walking and talking, went through the doors and up to go buy our tickets.
A large woman being pushed in a wheelchair was behind me sister and neice in line to get the tickets, (who were behind me) and Neice hears the woman start talking a bunch of crap about her. About how rude she is and she closed the door on her and that "she hoped our family would have to have someone in a wheelchair and that would happen to them" . She tells my sister whats going on and moves over to stand by us. She is really upset because she didnt see the woman behind her or of course, she would have held the door for her. Certainly not intentional! I mean, who would DO that??
Sister turns to the woman and says " I am so sorry, she didnt see you." and this woman starts arguing with her and tells her "yes, she did, she knew I was there, blah blah blah!"
My sister told her that neice was upset and certainly would never do that intentionally and the bitter B**** kept on and so sister says " well, Im sorry you feel that way" and then we all went into the theater. (which of course, they were in the same movie cause that is how these things always work).
What I wanted to say and didnt (because what would have been the point) is that I have been in a wheelchair (herniated discs in back and knee replacement) and unfortunatly so has my youngest daughter due to crohns disease. To wish someone has to suffer enough to be in a wheelchair? What kind of person are you? How awful to look at life through such a bitter, ugly filter that you would A. believe someone was intentionally so rude to you, and B. not accept a sincere apology about it.
We also had a couple of ladies move from sitting in front of us because my sister got really excited when she saw the surprise cameo appearance of her onscreen crush.
I dont know but maybe like one of my friends said one time, "Hey, maybe WE are the A$$holes?"
LOL, I dont think so but I guess anything is possible. Im not gonna be all bitter about it..

Today is my birthday and I am pretty happy about it. Yes, I am 49 today and closing the gap on 50 and I dont think I can remember a time when I have felt so good, so healthy and yes, even happy.
Losing weight and getting healthy has changed the way I think about things, made me more positive and energetic, less cranky and more confidant in my abilities. That is my gift this year.
Plans today include a movie with my girls, sister, and neice then dinner later.
I really wanted todays blog to be annoucing that I had lost 50 lbs but alas, I am a pound away so perhaps on Thursday which is my official weigh in day (sunday is my team weigh in day). I plan on staying on track today because I really, really want to hit that big number. It has been looming on the horizon since the start. That is my biggest mini goal and when I started, it was so far down the road, I couldnt even imagine it. Now? It is only a few meals away and I am thrilled with the progress I have made.
I thank you all for your support, your well wishes, your friendship and sharing the journey with me. Life is good and I am grateful.
Shoutout to Graceisenuf7 as we share the same birthday today! Libra's rullllllleeeee! lol.
