Really... I mean, seriously, why is losing weight so difficult!! I have been really good this week. Worked hard, even tried to work out (only mangaged three days, but, hey, its better than nothing!), and still not even a single millimeter has moved on that scale. I think I might be premenopausal or something because I remember it coming off a lot easier when I was younger. I will just keep plugging away this next week and maybe, just maybe, if the stars are aligned correctly and the hormones are in balance, that dang scale will budge!

David has received a new calling in our ward. He is now the high priest secretary. He was also ordained to the office of high priest. Did you know that you don't have to be a high priest to be the high priest secretary? I didn't. I teased him that he was joining the oldies, but our ward doesn't really have oldies. David IS one of the oldies! Out of about 25 or so high priests, David is the sixth or seventh oldest. Even though he is old, I am really proud of him for being worthy enough to hold the priesthood and bless our family!

checking in

Okay, so this week didn't go so great. I tried, but kicking the chocolate is hard!! I did okay the first day, and then with the stress from work and home, ended up going downhill the rest of the week. Today is the start of a new week and one can hope that it will be a better one! I decided not to weigh myself today because of the lackluster performance of the week - but I will do it next week so that I can have some accountablility going. And can I just say, I hate it that men lose weight quicker than women!!

This is a challenge for me. I am tired of being over weight. With the plantar facsciitis, achilles tendonitis, and the general yuckiness from the fribromyalgia, I need to get some of this weight off. The doctor did not come right out and say I had to lose weight, but we all know that we feel better when we have less weight to carry around. I have been doing a lot of reading and healthy diets and such and I am ready to give it a try. First step, cut out the junk, such as chips, cookies, etc. Also, no more processed foods. No more quickie dinners. Now I have to plan ahead a little and make sure I have something decent to eat for dinners. Usually not a problem unless I am lazy. Then I need to do my best to excercise, even though I am limited to what I can do. I will check in once a week to update my progress. I am hoping that the added pressure of having to report will make me more conscious of what I am doing, just like weight watchers, only cheaper!

Time for a post

Time to post something - We had an ok summer. Cameron had the most fun with turning 14, going to boy scout camp, and then high adventure camp. He was gone a lot and was out doing lots of fun things. Aaron got to stay home with me and be bored. Aaron did turn 12, which is exciting, and now is a deacon passing the sacrament. These boys are growing up way to fast! Aaron went to work with me a couple of days this summer and helped out with the special needs kiddos in the middle school. He even got to see me get hit by one of the boys. Thank heaven that only happened once all summer! School is back in with the usually routine of getting up early, homework, etc. It is even earlier now that Cameron is going to seminary. At least we are in on a carpool and I don't have to drive him everyday. That helps out ALOT! Hears hoping that there is more exciting news to post about later!

Break Time

It is spring break time here and we are going to enjoy the lovely weather (in the 70's) and working on household chores! Okay, the boys aren't going to enjoy the household chores, but they will enjoy the great weather! I am looking forward to getting some canning, baking, and deep cleaning done. We will also be planting the garden next weekend. I am excited about that. Love me some fresh, home grown tomatoes! What have you got planned for your spring break?
