Still here!

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I have been pretty bad about blogging. For a while, real life intervened and we had some worries. None of them came to pass, I'm very thankful for that. But even during that stressful time, I kept on eating normally and exercising, and that made me feel a lot better.

Other than that, driving is getting a little easier and I can sort of see that maybe at some point I'll actually be able to pass the test. emoticon I did pass the German test, I just found out yesterday. Even though I will never need to prove a higher competence in the language for official purposes, now I'm motivated to study some more and actually be able to converse with real people!

Maintenance-wise, I'm still not quite there. The loss has slowed, but hasn't stopped yet. I think I'm close, though, as I'm losing less and less every week. I have not been tracking lately and it's been working out so far, but if I notice any signs of slipping I will start to track again.

I'm looking forward to this cold streak ending. Apparently it will snow tomorrow, a sign that the temperature will rise. It's nothing unusual if you've ever lived in MN or WI, but for central or southern Europe, it is certainly a little extreme. My daughter has had it with being cooped up inside, but it really is too cold to be outside for anything over 15 minutes.

    It's so good to see you around!!!
    Congrats to the German test and to your progress in driving.

    It is great your weight loss is getting slower and slower.

    We have extremely cold weather here in Hungary too.

    Good to see you writing today! Glad you passed the German test (es tut mir leit)... and I have every confidence that with practice you'll pass driving too. And special emoticon for eating normally and exercising. I can't say enough about how much those two things in and of themselves help reduce stress!

    In short... keep on keepin' on, you're doing great... and we're out here Sparking along whenever you need a boost and have the time.

    I am sure you will pass the driving test. Just be calm and alert and you will do fine! Practice and preparation are the keys to passing any test.
