A lot of us have gotten the smack down by the snow gods this last week. Being from the Inland Northwest I’m pretty much used to that by this point in my life. However….when the street department waits to do the plowing and then two days later plows my street and puts a 4 FOOT ice berm in front of my driveway….I get a teensy bit cranky!! So Sunday afternoon I go out with my pretty yellow snow shovel and can’t get even one shovel full it’s so icy. Ooooom….caaaallllmmm…..uh oh....that's not working. So I stomp over to my trusty Honda Element and call my dog Luke who is playing in the front yard. We get in, I put it in reverse, get going a bit and WHAM! Slam into the berm. (Luke is probably regretting that he wanted to go for a ride now.) Forward a bit…reverse…WHAM! Had a little road rage in my driveway!
I actually did knock down the top ice berg. So then I go get my steel shovel from the garage, and pick, pick, pick, back in the car, wham, wham, pick, pick, pick….finally…Success!! And no dents in the Honda either!
Love my car!
That was the extent of my excitement for the weekend. I did eat really well all weekend, ending with a lovely salmon and roasted brussel sprout dinner yesterday after the driveway trauma. I’ve been kind of stagnating in the weight loss area for a couple of weeks but that’s the way it goes sometimes for me. Here is my latest weigh in for the Biggest Loser Challenge.
I didn’t do a blog last week for various reasons but the weigh in was right in the same area anyway.
This week: 262.2
Have a good week sparkers! Don't let the snow push you over the edge!!!

Where to start…where to start… Christmas day! Breakfast with Mom and youngest brother since we are all the single ones. IHOP! It was yummy and nice to catch up with my little bro (who had spent the previous day in Seattle at the Seahawks game! The bum!) Later in the day was dinner with the whole family. I have 2 brothers and a sister and 4 nieces. Young, loud nieces…sigh….but I try to be tolerant and not the cranky ol’ Auntie! Lol! We also watched Home Alone 1 and 2. Which I found to be a little torturous but the rest of the fam seemed to enjoy.
I tried to be good on my food since I had breakfasted at the ihop, and I think I pretty much succeeded. I haven’t had the best week ever, food wise, but it wasn’t too bad either. I now have 1 week to still get my goal. Normal people probably say I shouldn’t shoot for 3.5 lbs in one week but for me it’s not that unusual. For example, earlier this week I weighed 4 pounds more than my weigh in this morning. I stepped on the scale and a momentary wig out. But then I remembered - I fluctuate like crazy. Sometimes it makes it tough to figure out what the heck's going on, but for the most part I’m heading in the right direction so I don’t stress about it too much. Anyway, I’m still shooting for my end of year goal!
I’m not really a new years resolution kind of person so I’m not sure what I’m doing come January, but I will set a new goal to shoot for at the beginning of the year. After I have my pizza reward for making the current goal of course! Here’s this weeks weigh in:
week 1: 278.4
week 2: 278.6
week 3: 279.8
Week 4: 277.2
Week 5: 275.8
Week 6: 280.8
Week 7: 273.8
Week 8: 274.0
Week 9: 275.2
Week 10. 270.2
Week 11: 267.6
Week 12: 263.2
Week 13: 264.2
Week 14: 263.6
Have a spectacular New Year everyone!! I hope you all get the new years kiss you want! Mine will be from 3 furry gentlemen named Luke, Zeke and Eliot!!
