Snow Day

Good morning all!

We have about 3-4 inches of beautiful white stuff outside. Ross is going to buy Alexis a sled this morning and we're going to take her sledding for the first time!

Not much else planned for today other than staying warm and doing some baking. I'm making a German Chocolate Cake for Dad since that's his favorite. I'm also going to make some cupcakes for all the kids and I'm going to throw in an angel food cake for the point counters in the family.

I've just about decided that I'm going to try doing Weight Watchers point counting all on my own. I've done meetings and point counting before and if I'm really good I will lose weight. Only problem is, I spoiled myself with WW online because it was so easy to use. I'm not wanting to spend the $40 a month right now to have that, so I'm going to see how I do with my book and slider card for calculating points. I've got to do something, I'm seeing all kinds of people talking about all the pounds they are dropping. And my pounds are just hanging on for dear life.

I'm also going to try to get an exercise routine going...that's one of my biggest struggles. I have a Bowflex Treadclimber that is collecting dust on the back porch. I'm hoping when we get the remodel done and it gets moved into the office I'll have an easier time using it. Right now, it's cold on the back porch and I don't want to take the girls out there with me, but I can't leave them unattended for that long and they don't always nap at the same time either. I do have some "Walk Away The Pounds" DVD's that I like, so that's what I'm going to focus on for now.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Go sista! Remember when we used to pack our snacks on our trips to St. Louis, gotta get back in that habit! Good luck! You can do it! And we will be looking fine on the beach. Imagine how fun it will be going shopping for beach clothes and swimwear all in the juniors section, not traveling back and forth between it and the women's department.
