Woot, 14 degrees today and that's the highest we'll see for at least a week. This weekend it's not even supposed to get above zero. At least the sun was shining today!

I did much better today, did not cave in to consuming any carbage. I have book club tonight and am planning on a salad. The excess water is leaving me already and I've been drinking extra water too. I'm hoping to avoid the horrible headaches I usually get when switching back to fat burning.

Hello, friends!

I'm off on Christmas Break until January 8th. Like most teachers, I suspect, I've spent my break deep cleaning. We recently returned from a trip down to Orlando to visit my MIL. We spent the day in the Sea World park. If you don't have any political aversion to the park, I highly recommend going during Christmas time. It was really, really fun.

40 degrees here in SE GA, which means my butt is staying in the house. Since we were gone for Christmas, we're doing a few of our Christmas traditions a little backwards. We'll be sitting down to watch some of our favorite Christmas movies. I just cancelled Dish, so I'll have to find the Rose Bowl parade online, but I'm happy to have the extra cash in our budget. I also cancelled my Y membership because I never went after this summer. Instead, I have two workout video programs that I bought but haven't completed it. 2018 sounds like an excellent time to do it!

The busy phone store is ONE of the reasons I haven't replaced my flip phone! Good luck Leslie.

Stay warm Woubbie.

Freezing cold in the office again. This is getting more than a little old.

I'm taking DB to the airport this morning, and that's the end of the company! It's back to just Russell and me here, and Mom and Sandy at their place. It was good to see folks, but I've lived alone for all but a year of the past 40 years and I'm used to having lots and lots of alone time.

That's me too CalGal. Not eating very carby, but too much or not enough--some days I am just not interested in food. I need to start seriously tracking again to see which it is. Everything still fits just fine, but I feel a bit 'puffy' and have put on a couple of pounds.

Cleaning today and still bunches of laundry to get finished. I have a good start, but still lots of piles.

My husband is also a CPA. He practiced in the utility industry for years. 'Retired' at 50 and has had a small tax practice here in the Village for the past 20 years. This year he is 'releasing' all of the problem clients and not taking on new ones. He will finish his term as mayor in March. He is finishing the office at the motel and I expect he will spend a considerable time there. I too did not sign on for someone home watching TV all day! What was the the old saying?: something about marrying for love, but not for lunch!

Enjoy your day.

Thursday---Thursday!!!! YYYiiipppeeeee!!!! The end of the year is creating a need for me to more flexible!!! Breathe in . . . breathe out!!! All will be well . . . the more people involved in an event the more the more patience and adaptability.

It is cold here---I've turned on space heaters in areas where water pipes may freeze. My electric bill will be out-of-this-world but no pipes will burst. I'm in need to clean the common rooms. Also, I need to unpack my bags. I won't be traveling this weekend. Once I made a decision to stay home---the stress went out of my Aura. My Uncle is disappointed--but--I'm in need to take care of myself and home.

I paid my real estate taxes after visiting with my 89 year old. I usually wait until the last possible day but I'm giving it up. The $$$ is in the bank and just let it happen. I need to simplify my life!!!

I'm still hopeful to make my Goal of under 160# this year. At least it's getting closer. I'm happy with the Journey and at least it's under 178#. LOL!!!!

PS-- my computer is NOT cooperating today---I received a huge box of Truffles so I gave it to my 89 year old. Seriously---last night was sabotaging me. Whewwww!!!

Hugs to surround everyone as you finish our Journey towards evaluating the Goals we made for 2017. WOW---what a fasssstttttt trip!! YYyiiiippppeeeeee!!!

Here it is, the final Thursday of 2017. This year has flown by.
I'm down with another cold. Last one was short. Hoping this one is too. Taking a trip next week for a few days. I don't want to be sick through that.
Trying to get back on track with extreme low carb. Weight has been creeping up due to both too much and carb creep. I'm trying to find that magic place again where my will power is stronger than the pull of food. I'm not eating badly, just too much. Sigh. Not easy to curb my appetite when I don't feel well and I'm sure emotions around this holiday time haven't helped. Just gotta sit and analyze it and stop the madness.

Hope everyone is having a great week, or at least making the most of the week they've been given. Hugs to all

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.
