Still coughing and blowing my nose. What a miserable cold! But time will heal it. I'll take some ibuprofen and benadryl which will help me sleep. Thank goodness I have a holiday and don't have to do important serious things.

Thanks to kind people for kind thoughts. This has been a rough holiday because of the illness. I'm slowly on the way out now, and I hope I'll be feeling like a human being again by the middle of this coming week.

HAPPY SUNDAY!
Hope you're all having a great weekend. This year is almost gone and we have a brand new year to reach our healthy weight loss goals. What will you be doing to reach yours?
For me, I'll be doing low carb, and I'm cutting out all artificial sweetners. Bob and I have also joined a fitness center and will be going there 3 times a week. It's only a 5 minute drive from the house so no excuses not to go. I don't know how much of the 65 lbs I'll be able to lose in 2013 but I'm going to lose just as much of it as I possibly can.

I'd been stressing on how I was going to be able to pay for my membership and monthly dues, but I sat down this afternoon with my calculator and figured up all the bills and made a grocery list up, and worked things around where I can pay for my membership ( right now I'm on a free pass). January was the only month I'd have had problems since enrollment and dues were to be paid all at once, but I got it figured out. Big relief!

Bob's feeling back to normal this morning. We decided to wait til Monday to go back to the fitness center. Weekends it's so packed you can't enjoy it. But during the week it's not as crowded. We normally go Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Once he got a fluid pill in him and started going to the bathroom, he felt much better. He knows now he can't skip taking those pills. With only 35% heart strength, he simply can't take chances.

My maintenance period is almost over. I have been maintain within 5 pounds since Thanksgiving. My maintenance ends January 1st. New Year New Challenge.

For the next couple of days I will be coming up with my resolutions. I will having them ready by Monday! Last year I just made a couple but I was very successful in the goals and resolutions I have set. I will be equally successful this new year coming.

My sister hasn't had the baby yet. She is coming soon but I don't know if she wants to be here before the New Year.

Hope everyone is having a great Friday. We had planned to head up to the fitness center this morning but Bob is having shortness of breath so we're going to wait now til this afternoon and see if he gets to doing better. He didn't take a fluid pill for 2 days and he may have a little too much fluid around his heart. He's taken the fluid pill today and we'll see if that helps. If his breathing doesn't improve within about a hour, I may take him to the doctor and see if he needs to go to the hospital.

At least we had a plan. I remember when I used to think that I did not really eat that much. But since I started tracking I realized that what I eat is high in calories and my portion control is off the chain. When I see how much a piece of KFC chicken has it does make me stop to think about what I am eating. I cook at home mostly, but then my portions are distorted. So I understand why I am not losing even though I don't eat potato chips or KFC or Wendy's as often as i used to. So, I am working on the measuring and weighing of my food and I log even if I know I'll be disappointed with the calorie report. My weight loss is slow hence The Slowest Loser. But I am seeing results and I am feeling better and sleeping better.

I will overcome

I had plans for the holiday season, but I failed. Well, not totally. I didn't lose weight, but I also didn't pork out and stuff myself. Maybe I will be able to lose some weight in this new year.

I'm expecting a lot of healthy improvements in 2013 for both Bob and me. With us both going to the fitness center now and working out 3 times a week, it'll help us both. And we'll really be working on getting the weight down.

Last week of 2012 and I am reflecting on my life for the last 51 weeks. What a crazy emoticon year I have had!

1. My home has been the longest emoticon place I have lived at besides my parents' house.

2. I received a promotion emoticon for the second time in my life.

3. I have lost 88 emoticon pounds this year.

4. This is the first time in my life I paid my own emoticon bills without a man telling me what to do.

5. I have helped out 3 people emoticon out because I had the means too.

6. I have been employed by the same company for a year! emoticon Most my jobs don't last more that a couple of months.

7. Since I was emoticon employed all year... I had a very profitable year.

8. My mom likes my man. emoticon His mother likes me. That is the first! emoticon

Now I am working on my resolutions for the New Year! emoticon

I hope you reflect on this year. You maybe surprised on everything you have accomplished!

For the record...Today is the day I was thinking my sister was going to have the baby...So far... not yet!

Good Morning....How was everyone's Christmas?

Christmas Eve at my mother's was very priceless! James and his kids came over there and they had no idea that my family went out and shopped for them. After dinner, the kids went into the living room and started looking at the presents emoticon which is when they noticed their names. OMG! I wish I had my camera emoticon out. All three came into the kitchen and shouted, "Daddy, we have presents here!" It was totally hilarious!

Christmas morning, at James' house, James brought me a spice rack. He brought it because I told him on our second date the key to losing weight is spice. If healthy food taste good your taste buds will want the healthy emoticon foods! It was awesome.

Then going to James' family emoticon Christmas, his mom keep saying she sees a wedding in the future. His step-dad said only grandkids he doesn't have is Yankee Grandkids. I think I blushed emoticon so much I want to crawl under the table.

It was very good Christmas. My sister is still emoticon pregnant. I think she is having the baby on the 27th. It is just my guess.

Boxing Day (Dec. 26) is a holiday for us too. I had a really quiet X-mas. the food I prepared for me was delicious. I stayed inside. today, I think I'll go for a stroll, just to inhale nature. Then a bath with some scented soaps and have scented candles burning with some soft music. emoticon

My Grandmother service was beautiful. My mom's church emoticon family hosted a luncheon after. It was very nice. I am glad my mom has people she can rely on.

My sister is having actually labor pains. So anytime between now until her due date she could have my little niece, Amber Grace emoticon . I cannot wait to meet her.

I am very excited. I finished my shopping Saturday. I was so blessed with lot of deals and great coupons. I finished wrapping all the gifts last night. emoticon

I am getting out of work early and the festivities begin. Tonight, we are celebrating at mom's. Then I am spending the night at James' house. After his kids open their gifts we are having a dinner at his mom's. emoticon


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! emoticon

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Hope everyone has a Blessed Christmas!

Stress can add pounds like you would or couldn't understand. I bet it goes away over the next couple of weeks... if you stay moving and limit your salt intake.

Today, will continue to with my weekend of rest and getting the last bit of things done- nothing major ... I will be prepared for the week to come! I will have a body fitly nourished and hydrated with plenty of rest so that I can make wise and thoughtful decisions!!!
Life is great everyone... it may be difficult (really difficult, but it's good).



be authentically you...

Words, like sticks and stones can break more than bones, they can break your spirit, your confidence and even your will. One thing that I have learned (and have to constantly remind myself of) is that MOST of the time the person delivering those words is the one with the problem.
Don't let someone else's shameful behavior become your shame. Leave the words with the person(s) that are speaking them and just walk away, water off the back of a duck. There are just people who don't think or don't care about what they say!

Words can hurt. Yes. My mother used to nag me with "Sticks and stones can break my bones but names can never hurt me." I felt so invalidated by that. Like I was wrong and bad to be hurt by verbal abuse. I still struggle with the issue of verbal abuse even at my advanced age.

Chris, I hope you feel better, I hope everyone who has been ill feels better.
the last 6 days have been like a marathon, I don't even remember what I did on Tuedsay, the other days are really clear. My body is up and running and crashing in the evening. I have been going to bed really early and have missed getting all my sparks in as I haven't been able to stay awake long enough, once I sit down, to get all the posts to the boards that I would love to respond to.

I do hope everyone at least ONE day of quiet and peace in the next 4 days... so your body and mind have time to decompress and the holidays can be enjoyable.

I am looking forward to getting the tree up and all decorated in the next day...
we are getting storms through here in then next 12+ hours ... so I am hunkered down and dressed to stay warm. One more errand to run to day and then I am hoping that tomorrow and Saturday will be much lighter and I will have time to get truly caught up with my work around here and preparing for Christmas and spending some quite time also.

be authentically you...

Well yesterday afternoon I did my good deed for the day...I gave emoticon blood! It made me feel very good knowing that someone gave blood for my Grandmother and Roger. I can give back. I have been giving blood every two months for the last 3 years. I have a collection of t-shirts that I am so proud to wear. I usually pick up a 2 XL t-shirt unfortunately they were out of. So I picked up a xl and it fit! I could not believe it! I cannot remember when the last time was in a emoticon XL t-shirt! Yeah Me! emoticon

Last night, I pickup a flower emoticon arrangement for my Grandmother's service tomorrow. It was purple and silver poinsettias. It was beautiful. Normally, it would have been $50 and that was a little much on my budget. However, since it was in the Christmas emoticon section I brought it for 50% off! What a blessing!

When I got home, a friend of mine tried to bring me into some drama. I cut it off at the pass but I am still bother by her comments. emoticon Why do words hurt so much?

I did it! I sent all my Christmas emoticon Cards! This is the most cards I have ever made...62 cards! I am so blessed I sent cards to several states. I was amazed where my friends ended up. I sent cards to emoticon Colorado, Florida, New York, Tennessee, South and North Carolina.

Tonight, I will be finishing up wrapping what I do have for Christmas emoticon presents. I am so happy Mom put up the Christmas emoticon Tree. Really she put it up for my son, Kaleb. No one here is really in the Christmas emoticon Spirit. I am trying to be. I put my Christmas emoticon decorations up. I baked emoticon cookies. I play Christmas emoticon music. I have taken my son to see emoticon Santa. We are going to the light show this Saturday. I am trying to feel it but it isn't exactly working.

I am doing the best I can with everything that is going on. My friend emoticon , Ethine, who I work with isn't here today. Her grandfather just emoticon passed last night. She is heading to Florida. emoticon I am praying for her family.

Tonight is my parents' emoticon anniversary. They are going out to the movies. I am not sure what else they have planned.

the studio I have been organizing for the last 4 days is finally done, and I have dusted the entire apartment and vacuumed all the corners and edges of the carpet so far, the last I need to do is the general vacuuming and cleaning the cat hair off all the furniture in the living room.... yes, but there is really only a couch and a cushion to get that.
I am 2 steps away from beginning to decorate. I did put the tree up last night, but haven't started decorating it yet, that will happen today. YAH finally!!!!

Just stopping by to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

Over the river and thru the woods, there's lots to eat at Gram's, It's portion control, and eat it slow, so we can have the ya--ams!
Over the river and thru the woods, it's pumpkin pie for me, Hooray for fun, and when we're done, Spark People works, you'll see!

Over the river and thru the woods, now I'm the grandma here, reducing fat and sugar, too, while spreading lots of cheer-eer!
Over the limit of calories, well maybe just one time, but only when the fudge calls me, it really is sublime!

Well... the rest of this week will be busy and emotional. My boss just had me a sympathy card. Then decided we need to get our team's holiday picture emoticon done. Thank God I didn't cry emoticon to much after the card.

Tonight, I have a doctors appointment. When I get home making out the rest of the Christmas emoticon Cards are a must.

Tomorrow, My parents' are going out for there emoticon anniversary. Usually, my sister and I take turns watching Grandma. I think it is going to be weird.

Thursday, finally details for the service. I have to remember to bring in my secret emoticon Santa gift for Friday's party. I am hoping to finish wrapping the presents I do have.

Friday will be dealing with my family emoticon and all the crap that goes long with that.

Saturday, I have to pick up the toys for tots emoticon gifts. I am so grateful that I qualified emoticon for. Then finish with the few details of shopping emoticon and the wrap the rest of the wrapping. emoticon
