Just an ordinary day....

This is a weekend of manageable things. Some short hospital visits, some needlework, some close attention to great, healthy meals. I'd like to get a good,long walk in,and do some organizing in the basement. The weather here is cold and not that inviting for outdoor pursuits. In the evening, DH and I are chaperoning SBC's high school dance.

I'm reading a silly book by Bill Bryson called The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. it's a happy diversion in the midst heavy Lenten reading and study.

The discipline of WW is paying off well, with ten pounds gone. My friend Alison has also signed up and is positively inspiring. My goal this week is to track everything under the sun. I hadn't been tracking exercise, and doing so should be a good practice.

We're excited about a visit from my dad later on this week. We've not seen him since this summer. It will be great to have him here and to get ready for FBC's concert tour. We're able to see attend two of the concerts, in Indianapolis and Chicago Heights. Can't wait.

Congratulations on the missing 10 lbs! I know from personal experience just how hard it is to lose weight, and how much harder it is to keep it off. I'm not successful at either right now, but seems to be my poor choice at the moment. May you stay motivated!

Congrats on losing 10 lb!! I wish I had. Maybe I should try WW again, for the umpteenth time. It's a healthy way to lose weight. I am really glad you posted about this.

Yes, congrats on the scale update...and how was the dance?

Having your dad come for a visit AND to be there for the concert...priceless.

I'll bet the high school dance looked just like that! :)
Congrats on the weight!
And, let us know more about the concert tour.
