Yesterday was pretty much a day of rest. Not that I really rested - too much to do, but I didn't walk 10K steps (only 6K). Now to get back on track today - in the rain.

Bess sending you positive thoughts and warm wishes

Went to a play today and then getting ready to leave town for Christmas. ArÍte well but no exercise and tomorrow is a travel day

Sunny in Southern California PST

Challenges are what make life full of stress and anxiety and overcoming them is what can wear you out. Stay stong.

Don't stay down, every storm runs out of rain.

Bess, best wishes for your husband's recovery. I also hope your kids give you some TLC because I imagine this is pretty tough on you too!

I got in a good 5.5 mile run today.

My weight is half a pound higher than it was two days ago for no apparent reason! I sure hope it is water retention. I haven't really increased my calories above weight loss levels yet.

Bess, since he wants to see the Christmas tree when he comes home, I think you should put a bow on his head, because him home and healing is the best Christmas present your family could have. I didn't track yesterday because the whole day was taken up with picking up my new car. I got a Prius C, because the driving I do is perfect for a hybrid. It's bright red so looks a lot sportier than it is! I only ate about a third of my breakfast because I was excited, no lunch and leftover pizza for dinner. Time to head to church!

Bess, I hope your husband is doing better today! What an awful scare for you and your family.

I got my snacking under control yesterday and feel better today.

No white Christmas here. The snow we had on Friday is melting away rapidly and rain is in the forecast..

Have a good day folks.

Good morning! Playing catch up this morning. Busy day yesterday. Big hugs Bess! DC very good reminder.

It's snowing here in the Chicago area, watching White Christmas, curled up on the new couch! But getting up soon to take the lab for a walk.

Big hugs all around!

Thank you one and all my dear maintainer friends. Your support is so welcome. In fact - I knew it would be - LOL - greedy me - I knew I'd be posting here about my darling Himself and I knew you'd rally 'round - and knowing it was going to happen was one of the things I held on to.

Our son and new daughter are here now - got in around 1 o'clock - and will be here till he's home. There is a lot of love to cushion his homecoming. And he told me yesterday - I want a tree up when I get home. Cute. Also - walking around the hospital is great exercise, as I grope my way down unfamiliar corridors and around strange bends.

I did gobble up two bowls of ice cream last night - but they are 1/2 cup sized bowls so the damage was minimal and weight is stable. Good things - a world of good things.

and DC - I want to second your wish for all those who serve both at home and abroad - May you have a safe holiday, may you return home knowing how grateful I am for your sacrifice.

Believe it
Do it
Become it

Bess - Ditto what Maree said. All the best to you . Please keep us posted and know you are in our thoughts.

While we are thinking of others -- let's remember to thank all those who are serving and are securing our freedom and safety. Those not able to spend the holiday with those near and dear while they are protecting and securing this great country. ----- I for one THANK YOU ALL! And wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Great Sunday here in central VA. Suppose to top out in the low 70's today.. Gotta love it.

C'ya

Good morning!!

Bess, my heart goes out to you. My goodness! I hope you can feel this hug across the miles and prayers for continued progress, skilled medical providers and speedy recovery for your husband. And all the support you need.

Same for all others with loved I ones who are ill or who are facing other challenges!

Logould, I think that's a great plan, to have a trainer for a while. I had foot surgery about 10 yes ago--wish I wouldn't have let him put a pin in my second toe as it no longer will bend. But I have running friends who have fully recovered to run better than ever! Sounds like your approach has been very diliberate and calculated. Sincerely hope it goes well!

Rain and visiting today, maybe church. Ice has covered all the trees and the snow washed away. Maybe a walk.

Hope it's a good day for all. Special wishes for you, Bess.
