Right now I am a little ticked, I lost the blog I spent time writing and have to do it again. They never ever come out as good.
Yesterday we did a lot of sorting and packing. Bob found a number of things he had thought were lost, family photos and just things that he packed years ago and lost track of. We have gotten rid of many things, so we are going to try selling, some for donation and all of it that was sorted and kept is up in the rafts. I do need to get some office supplies I am taking with me tommorrow to Loaves and Fishes to donate, but they are not too well set up. I also have to get the supplies we are keeping put away in the library/office. One thing in all the boxes was quite a bit of jewelry, that belonged to Bob's 2nd wife Laura, and she had nice taste and was very lovely. It is sad though since he has one son, who Bob lost touch with years ago, it is sad to see those things just boxed and forgotten. Bob wants me to look at the stuff and to pick things I would like to wear, he even offered to have the rings reset. I do feel odd about it, but from what I know of Laura she would not want to see then just stored. so I am going look and see if there are things that I like and will wear.
I am having a little trouble with my wegth flux this year. I have lost 1.7 lbs this week, I still need another .3 to make my 80. I have been trying different things and increased my exercise, still some movement but not much. I am not stressed just would like to get it going more down. I have been thinking about it and I normally eat more to the lower side of my calories most days. I also a good friend suggest that I add more strength since I was already exercising about 60 min 6x a week, thank you Tami, good point. So I am going to add 2 more days with upper body and that starts today. I think that with eating more to the mid range of my calories and the adding of 2 more strength days, I might get it moving and if not, I will try something else. I am actually losing close to my plan, but just need to be more consistant or maybe feel I am in better control.
I also decided to spend 60 min a day spending time going to visit my friends pages and blogs, since this last month I have not been consistant there and that is just not working for me. Its all a matter of organization and using my time to the best.
Ok I need to get some laundry folded, and the rest of my exercises done.

    Like Yvonne, I write my blog posts in Word and keep saving it as I write. When I'm done I copy and paste to my blog. After I lost one of my best blog posts I decided to do it that way so I wouldn't be tempted to throw my laptop out the window. emoticon

    I had to Google "wegth flux"... What it came up with was Weight Flux so I'm assuming that's what you meant. If not, I'm lost. LOL

    Glad you had a productive time with hubby! I can relate to your weight loss frustration though at this point if I lost more than a pound I'd be throwing a party! I have only lost 9 pounds since January 1st...which is not making me happy, but I am also adjusting, adjusting, adjusting to see if I can get things to start moving again!

    I just did the same thing late last night on a long blog response to a very lonely Sparkfriend. I was so darn tired I couldn't try it again. Good Idea Yvonne Strikes Again!!!

    I also have MAJOR sorting and pitching to do. Will attend to at least one roomful over my Spring break. Beautiful jewelry deserves to see the daylight and to be seen!

    Have a great rest of your week!

    I was going to make the same suggestion that Yvonne did. I also need to get more consistent. Work/life has gotten in the way lately and I really feel a sense of loss when I don't get in my Spark time.

    Glad to read your post. Sounds like a productive weekend. I am happy for you and the jewelry. I hope that you find some things that you can use. I know that Bob wants you to. My dad did similar with my mom's jewelry for his 2nd wife and she had some lovely things made from the old stuff. I hope that all is well with you my friend. I agree that getting consistent is a necessary thing. I think I need to do more of it myself. Love, Dawn

    I can not tell you how many times that happened to me. You try to recreate the blog but you are right, it is never the same. Do what I do now. I type it up in word and save every few paragraphs. Then all I do is copy and paste to Spark People.
