Good morning, Linda. Hope your DS gets some encouraging news for his back injury.....

Like you, I've walked many a 10 minute loop in my house to avoid the cold frigid temperatures. In my other house, I used to do a loop in my house that involved 2 flights of stairs and lost 38# between that and my healthier eating. My family thought I was nuts, but I was determined that whatever I did, it could be done from my home and not a gym. Bottom line: All things work when they are consistent....food choices especially work toward positive results. "just do it" is what I tell myself. LOL, I reached for one of DH dreadful poptarts this morning.....it was in my hand, and I decided to look at the calories. One only is a whopping 210 calories....and for that junk (I don't even really like them). I put it back and went and made a pot of coffee. Saved by the nutrition label and m y good sense. DH does our grocery shopping.....don't know why he brings that garbage into the house anyway.

Another cold one here....Mother Nature needs to cut us a break in WNY.

Stay strong today.....I will try, too. emoticon

Afternoon, Linda. So glad I was able to post something that was helpful. Now I gotta help myself. I have every excuse handy and ready, but today, you have inspired me to "buck up" and "just do it." This is not easy....lol, I guess if it were, everyone would be healthy, fit and emoticon . I'm lacing up now to get outdoors. Molly will be a happy emoticon These days in her life, she doesn't walk more than a half mile, but she sure does enjoy it. And once I am out there, and bring her back home, I head back out again for what I need to do. Friend, my spirits improve a tenfold once the nice Spring weather arrives. I just love watching everything bud and bloom, and well once the flowers open, well it is just lovely.

Hope your day is going well. Let's take one small step after one small step, till the day is done. emoticon

He graduates May 16. He decided on May 31 party. He has all female friends who are willing to help! This one I asked is on the prom committee too. She graduated next year so her mom said it will be good practice for next year! The 'sticky' is he is dating her sister!
