Howdy. Crazy weather here in RI, too.On Sunday, where I live, we had sn*w in the morning, though not accumulating on roads but on cars, grass, trees, & roof. Just 10 miles east where my church is, it was heavily sleeting and sun was out at John's, just 3 miles south. The weather reminds me of my issues to address during this challenge. Winter doesn't want to let go, much like me with with sugar & carbs. A lesson as I create my Challenge plan.

BABS, so nice to see your post. Hope all is well with you & my CT friends.

Have a great evening, y'all!

We've had so much rain, but it could be worse. Some of you are still getting snow. Flowers are beginning to bloom. I love it! When I walk the dog, she stops to sniff every new blade of grass. So it isn't a fast paced walk, but it's so good for both of us. Fresh air is rejuvenating and relieves stress! I love it.

We had unexpected company arrive on us this weekend and while I loved having them (they also stayed the night as they are from out of town) it threw my whole weekend off. I did not get a chance to do my to do list but hey roll with the punches. And like I said it was great seeing them.

Have a great Monday

Good morning all....

I so need the accountability of the challenge and my awesome teamies!

Scales going the wrong way, but going to try to get that turned around before the Spring challenge starts so I ( hopefully) can start with the same weight I ended with a few weeks ago. emoticon

I am thinking the bungee numbers on the scales I am seeing is in part due to salt/ water retention so going to work on that and see how it goes.

Weather here in Alabama cannot make up its mind to be hot-cold or something in between.

Today is gusty cold winds and drizzling rain. Not a great combo.

Looking forward to seeing a Start date for the Spring Challenge SOON!

Have an awesome week.

Debbie, what helps me is writing it down. It does't matter if it is food or exercise, weather you use the tracker or pencil and paper. There is just something about writing it down. Maybe you are like me and my dog walks max out my exercise on SP, so total exercise isn't the problem. The Dr says I need more strength exercise and balance exercise. On the computer I don't see it, so I have an exercise paper on the fridge where I see it every time I open the fridge door.

Happy Monday morning!! It is a briskly cool day, high of 42. I am at my desk, working hard. emoticon Easter will soon be here. Thank goodness I can't eat chocolate - migraines. I am having a hard time with willpower at the moment. I need my Travelers and some structure. Marilyn - are there calories in blowing dirt? Maybe I should try that. emoticon Hope you all have a glorious Monday! emoticon

So, we are in the midst of hopefully being able to move out of this state. We are using our vacation this next coming up week to go for any interviews that we have so this season, I will have to opt out of the challenges. To take a break to be able to move out of state. Alot going on with applications and interviews.

I will be around for later this year challenges-hopefully from a different state location.

Good luck everyone!

Good morning!!!! I didn't realize it was Palm Sunday this morning. I thought it was next week, but then again, Easter is the 1st.

Anyway, I think my pneumonia reared its ugly head again yesterday, so I'm going slow today. Not fun. But at least the snow is to begin to melt! Yea!

We ae at 67 and foggy at 6:00 this morning. Wonderful walk, Dark, no moon or stars, the owls were hooting, donkeys braying, cow mowing and roosters crowing. An the way home a beautiful sunrise, and the birds were chirping. Nice peaceful country walk.

We have snow mixed with sleet. It is slick to step outside. The temperatures are supposed to get above 32 midday, so, maybe it will melt then.

It was snowing here this morning - big fluffy flakes that did not stick. It was quite pretty but I really did not want to see it in March.

Other than that I am having a quiet day watching the curling and knitting

Have a great day

Yesterday I was out in my yard doing damage control on my trees and shrubs that had broken branches from all the snow over the winter. Sun was shining.....sky was a brilliant blue against the snowcapped mountains.....it was an awesome day (even though I was working around mounds of snow that haven't melted yet). I even took my winter door wreath down and put up my spring wreath.
THEN......woke up to a couple inches of snow this morning. Ugh. Everything is white again.
I am SO ready for the spring challenge to start. I'm motivated....but I want to be REALLY motivated. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning....lol.
Have a healthy day challengers!!! ...especially the Teddy Bear crew :)

No, the invites haven't gone out just yet. In fact, the leaders haven't even received the teams to set them up. Once we do, we'll have a couple of days to prep them before we receive the team member lists, then we begin sending out the invites to the teams. But that hasn't happened just yet. Don't worry, no one will be left out.

Hi All!!!
I've caught up on my reading... LOL
I agree with most everyone that the weather has been unusual this spring. I had a big enough part of my yard with grass showing a month ago I told my husband it was almost croquet time. Now I have over a foot of snow in that area with branches to clean up from the neighbors pine trees. Yuck!!

I'm looking forward to being placed on a team. I did not succeed on the last challenge but I am moving forward and meeting health goals. No smoking - check over 7 months smoke free, I went to my doctor for the first time in a year and a half - BP medication prescribed and the lose weight speech, no wine speech. So good progress on that.

It was good to see the scale back at the low end of where my weight has been hovering for the last two months.

Have a great rest of your FRIDAY!

Forecast is for snow for us. It seems 2 inches from some but one of the locals seems to think it will be more. Hoping for less since it is Spring but feels like dead Winter.

We got slammed with a couple inches of rain. I live in the high desert, so lots of areas are flooding. May need to get some water wings for the horses and dogs! Everything is over saturated.

Ugh! I just read the weather winter warning from the local news station and it read that we are to get 6" to 10" of snow Friday night into Saturday. Ugh! I'm glad I haven't had a chance to run the fuel out of the snowblower just yet. Eek!!!!

I'm getting my hair done tomorrow. I'm debating on what to do, so we'll see what's on my mind when I actually show up at her shop tomorrow afternoon! HA!

We are under a burn ban. A very dry spring, no rain and the humidity in the teens. We are use to it being muggy

We're in day 3 of rain, so far, so good. Lots of families on mandatory evacuation, no mudslides as yet. Rain's expected to be gone tomorrow

I think you would be a good dog walker. You might even get enough people around where you live

I decided to cut back on the personal shopper job due to it triggering my anxiety to the point of chest pains. I can manage one trip to the grocery and not freak out, but apparently 5 trips in one day is enough to make me want to curl up into a ball and cry for a week.

Instead, I am now a professional dog walker (I've been chewing on that one for awhile now) while I work on my book about the struggles of bipolar disorder that seem to keep getting overlooked. I have a blog on it, but after someone asked me to be a guest on their podcast, it just has been in the back of my mind to do this. So, here we go. This is going to be tight, but I think I can do it.

I'm tired of living on the sidelines...I'm ready to get into the race!!!!!

Played golf today, but, it was so windy!

Well, we didn't get the foot of snow that was expected, but we got a decent 5-6 inches of it. Sun is hot though. The snow is already melting on the roofs, even though it is 42, with a real feel of 38. I finished a book yesterday, and did some laundry. Will finish laundry today. Niece is coming in for a visit!

Who ordered snow!!!!!!

It snowed here in Indy, but not like it did in some other parts of the country! Yikes! I'll say no more.

I needed a jacket when I walked the dog this morning, but an hour in I wished I hadn't

Spring definitely did not happen for some of you. Looks like in some areas you haven't seen anything but snow for quite some time. Hope that passes soon.

It's sunny here today. It has been raining and dreary for days. So the sunshine is welcome. Cold, but sunny. I can deal with that.

Even my part of Florida is pleasantly chilly. I left my jacket in the car, and I think I may need to go get it.

Well I think they may have gotten it right. It has been snowing since last night. The college closed today so I am working from home. Hope everyone has a nice day. emoticon
