My journey has been a struggle. No other way to describe it. I have been working hard and have had no loss in inches or weight in 2 weeks. I decided to follow the SP meal plan but no loss yet. The biggest reason I am sticking with it is I love how I feel. I have more energy and am usually is such a positive mood. It has also helped reading other peoples blogs and seeing the progress they make. I have read some amazing stories and shed a few tears and smiled a lot. I feel very blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community.

This weekend I took out the storm windows and put in the screens. My son asked why I was making so much work out of it because I was taking only one window down to the basement at a time. I told him it was an opportunity to get in more exercise. I made 22 different trips down to the basement. Sure I could have done them in fewer but I would have missed an opportunity that was right in front of me. There has been too much of that in my life already so I am choosing to seize the moments that come my way.

I also put in the new mailbox this weekend. My son dug the hole for me. Ah to be young and have limitless energy. He dug a 30 inch deep hole in about 10 minutes. I would have been out there for 30 minutes or more. He helped me level it and fill the hole back up. It looks pretty good even if I do say so myself.

Today I am going to do more yard work. My husband is frustrated with me because I choose to mow the lawn with the push mower instead of the riding mower. I try to tell him I love the workout I get but he thinks we have it I should use it. I tell him exactly. I have the energy and the desire so I should use it.
