Just a little update.

Saturday, November 03, 2012

Just wanted to blog and let you'all know that we got off pretty lucky as far as the storm goes. The electric was off for a short time , had some tree limbs down, but that was it. My parents and a couple of people I work with still do not have electric. I am feeling blessed today for things to be back to normal.
We had a band meeting this week and are finalizing the trip details for the Rose Bowl Parade. I am really excited now! They have raised 218,000 dollars with the fundraisers and community donations!!! The performance at half time was incredible last night. The kids look great.
As for me, I am plugging along. One day at a time. I am trading in my trix this week for my new favorite snack, edamame:) emoticon I bought some talapia too. Happy Saturday everyone.

    Glad to hear your ok. I love edamame. Aren't you the healthy girl. Been snacking a bit on twix due to the holiday and as of yesterday It was all gone. Then late lat night I kinda freaked. Nothing sweet in the hours. I think a new addiction was forming. Stayed in today, knowing I would get someof that discounted halloween candy. Thought I was good to go. Well my Dad just dropped off some twix and thousand dollars bars. I will do my best to use self control. But I really need to get the scale moving again. Been at 166-167.5 for a few weeks. Not walking as much. As its getting cold and the Dr wants me using my Sling more. He told me no long walks letting my arm hang. So I have to get the scale to budge. I think I will have to concentrate on my diet better. Maybe do more low carb. I'm loving your attitude. Are you following any certain nutrition program?

Hope your parents get some relief soon.

    Thank goodness you and your family are all ok!

I have ALWAYS wanted to go the the Rose Bowl Parade - it's been a dream of mine for a long time. I want to stay at a fancy hotel - one that offers premium seating for the parade so I can really see it well. Unfortunately - I haven't got the money to do it yet - maybe one day.
