Week 2

234.4 I gained .2 lbs.

When I logged my weight this morning this is what I got:

GREAT JOB for logging your weight! We notice that you've gained a little this week. You should know that gaining weight every now and then is a natural part of the weight-loss journey.

It didn't make me feel any better. So I gained .2 lbs. i am not going to let it get me down and I am tempted to blam it on the salty food I ate for lunch and dinner yesterday. I had a high stress week and I usually find myself eating when I get overly stressed. So the fact that I didn't gain more is great.

High: We were able to get our van repaired.

Low: stress- the van and hard goodbyes.

goal for next week: more exercise

What a weekend.

Friday started with getting out of Chilli late so it was standing room only at the Waverly-Piketon game. We had some great conversations while we stood and watched the game. By half time the kids had enough standing around so we watched the bands half time show and then headed home. We had some great company that evening. Ends up we should have stayed to see the end of the game. I hear it was pretty tense and Waverly pulled out the win by 1 point.

Saturday morning I had an Emmaus team meeting. It was okay, kind of tough. I am amazed when I am around certain groups of Christians at where I have come in my faith and where I stand compared to where I was when I went on my walk. I am not saying I am any better than anyone else and that I am right and they are wrong. I am just simply amazed at where I stand on issues now and at what is important and what's not so important. During the last 30 minutes of the meeting God gave me my talk. So when I got home I sat down and typed it out. It is in the hands of my editor now and hopefully I will hear soon on whether it is any good or even makes any sense.
After the meeting we just hung out at home the rest of the day. Saturday evening I sat constantly expecting a teenager to walk through my door. And then it dawned on me the ones who usually just come over are gone, I teared up. I miss MY kids! I take owner ship over them because I love and care about them. I know they aren't really mine but they have become such a part of our lives that I can't call them anything but my kids. I miss them a lot!

This morning we headed to church. Several individuals sang a song from RENT before the message. It was simply amazing and so fitting to the message. You can view it here Seasons of Love
Steve's message was really good today!
After church we headed home for lunch with a great friend. I was very lazy this afternoon, I sat around and edited pics and uploaded pics to facebook and flickr.
This evening out church had their annual baptism/Boat Race/Pool party. I think that a good time was had by all. I really enjoyed getting to catch up with some friends and just relax. Silas wanted to go off the diving board. Mommy's not ready for that though. Marty "Waverly" Ford made some AWESOME Pork Tenderloin!
After the pool party we headed home to watch the closing ceremony of the Olympics.

I think we had a great weekend!

I hate to say goodbye! I had my first college goodbye this evening.

There are so many people in my life that are moving on to the next chapter of theirs. I pray that that they will all have fun and enjoy this time in life.

To those that I don't get to say goodbye to, I am praying for you as you enter in your next grand adventure. The best is yet to come.

I don't remember saying goodbye like this since I was in college.

We will see each other in 8 weeks, we will talk at least once a week, we will email, tweet and IM. It's hard to think you won't be here once a week eating dinner with us.
It's hard to think that I won't have my friend to cook, bake, laugh and talk with.

You hold a very special place in my heart. We have had such a little amount of time to get to know each other. But in that amount of time we have become so close. There are so many things that will make me think of you when your not around. From Tim Hortons to Cannons and oh yes and that beautiful melody you sang when you were high (after having your wisdom teeth pulled).

I am so thankful we were able to create the memories that we have but I am so excited about the memories we are going to create in the years to come.

Thank You Jesus for My Friend!

Thank You Jesus

I don't have many other words right now but


Week One

I lost 3.6 lbs.

My High: Losing a little weight and still eating the yummy Pizza Dip I made.

My Low: Not Finding time to Exercise.

I had a pretty good week I found my self so hungry a couple of days but this weekend went better. I am not as hungry between meals or at the end of the day now even after a week.

Goal for next week if to find time to exercise and loose more weight.

#1 starts today

So number 1 on my list of 101 starts today. I was ask why I wanted to do this so here are my reasons:
1. I am TOO FAT
2. I want to wear clothing from Title Nine
3. I just want to look better.

If you are interested in helping me with this that would be great. I am going to need all the help I can get.

I think that I will update my blog once a week with my high and low and accomplishments for the week.
