Well, I tried going to bed an hour and a half ago, but all I could think about was ... "Where in the world (or house) did I put some cross stitch charts?" Last fall I had pulled some charts to begin planning a growth chart for my grandson and granddaughter. But, I needed to finish a Christmas stocking first, so I put them aside. Well, they weren't there when I went looking for them. I even cleaned up a spare bedroom today trying to find them. At least the room is clean and organized now emoticon

I had even forgot to blog I was so preoccupied in trying to figure out where I could have put it (they are at least 3 booklets) - hence why I am blogging now after 11:00 trying to get my mind on something else. I think I know what I put it in - now I just got to find the bag. That is tomorrow's project emoticon

As far as today goes -- I had a good weigh-in for my Pink Panthers team emoticon - I lost 2.5 lbs since last Thursday. I pray that it will be the same or lower at my official gym weigh-in with my trainer on Saturday.

I did have a good day even though I can't find the cross stitch charts. My daughter came by this morning and we had a good visit. Then when she left, a friend called and said she could come by in the afternoon to chat. It was good to catch up with her as I hadn't seen her since the beginning of December.

The daily goal that is the hardest to reach is #4. My all day snack was almonds(I measure them out in the morning and when they're gone, they're gone). And since I had visitors both in am and pm I didn't snack today.

Daily Goals....
1. Minimum of 30 minutes of exercise though I am trying to get 120 min a day -- emoticon 70 min
2. Minimum of 5 freggies emoticon 5
3. 8-10 glasses of water emoticon10
4. Lean protein for one snack -- emoticon
5. Do NOT graze/snack all day -- emoticon
6. Blog even if it is to keep track of goals. emoticon

    Bummer - but it was good to get up and do something rather than lay awake and fret.

    You are doing emoticon Carrie. As to the mysteries of the cross stitch charts and almonds??? It made me laugh as I thought ... Oh that kinda stuff Doesn't just happen to me! emoticon How exciting to be 2.5# down and be that much closer to your goals. The Teddy bears are gonna have to watch out for the Cloverleafs with you on their team! Good luck reaching your 5% goal.

    Carrie, we must have the same affliction--put stuff away to never be found again. LOL I think if I would just leave it where I had it--not put it up--I wouldn't lose so many things. You are really doing good with your goals. ((HUGS))

    It's refreshing to know that I am not the only one who puts "things" away and then can't find them... hopefully you will find your cross stitch today!

    Great goals, too!!!

    Keep on keeping on!!!
