Only three pounds to go to goal but they seem like HUGE ones, even compared with the first ten that I lost before joining SP. I'm actually feeling pretty good at the weight I'm at, and friends have been telling me they think I don't need to lose... Read more
Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do
not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal
to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no
miracle, but you yourself shall be a miracle. Every day you

Schrank is the German word for wardrobe. Most apartments don't have walk-in closets or other forms of built-in storage here. You have to buy a Schrank for your clothes, as well as your other "stuff".
On the one-day challenge team, we are su... Read more
I'm fighting a uti and unfortunately had to start antibiotics today. I was down 3 pounds on the scale so that cheered me up some on this rainy, cold day. I'm feeling somewhat better this evening but am really looking forward to my heating pad an... Read more
I've hit another plateau but I'm pretty sure I'll break through next week. I think one thing that has caused it is lack of sleep. I'm just not getting enough sleep at night. I blame it on my current crazy schedule and make all kinds of other exc... Read more
Who Am I?
Who am I? This is what God's word says about me:
I am the salt of the earth. (Matt. 5:13)
I am the light of the world. (Matt. 5:14)
I am a child of God. (John 1:12)
I am part of the true vine, a channel of Christ's life. (John 15:1,5)... Read more
You could say it's the calm before the storm. Next week is kids' English camp again (yes, I said "yes" again!)
I'm enjoying the fact that I no longer have my project looming in the background and that I've had an easier schedule at the lang... Read more
Sent my final project off as an email attachment on Friday morning at 2:30 AM. It feels good to have that finished. Now I have no excuses to stay up too late and I'm going to get serious about getting to bed earlier. I want to get better about ... Read more
We had Kids Day Camp at the language school this past week. It's a chance for the kids to have fun and learn some English in a fun setting. For me, it's a nice change from the usual business English lessons for adults. I taught the kids on M, Th... Read more
How much I look like my Mom in that new photo! I seem to look more and more like her as I lose weight.
Getting ready to start a new strength training challenge in August. I'm still tracking food and exercise on a daily basis. And I'm still... Read more
For the first time since joining SP, I'm over my calorie limit! By 16 calories! Our home group had a cookout this evening. Think I should have skipped that last piece of watermelon? ;) Just had to share that...
Bumped my knee today - I seem... Read more
A little wink from heaven?
Last week I ordered a blouse as a reward for losing 25 pounds and for being on SP for 90 days. It's from Jack Wolkskin and it's made of superlightweight "nano" material that breathes with you - perfect for outdoor exercise. Today, I went to pick... Read more
Ouch - Schleimbeutelentzündung
On the way from the tram to the language school this morning, I slipped sideways off the heel of my summer sandals. No big deal, I thought. But an hour later, I started having some pain in my hip. By the time I left to go home at 4PM, I could ha... Read more
As predicted, the weather was hot and sunny for our outdoor service, but with a good breeze that helped keep it from being too extreme - and also kept us running after the sheets of music that were blowing off the music stands and all over the s... Read more

Happy Bastille Day!
My dad reminded me in an email that today is the French national holiday. He grew up there, so he always remembers, but I forgot this year, even though my boss at the language school is also French. Vive la France!
Summer has returned, just... Read more
