Oh that is so sweet. Those are the moments aren't they?

I love that I can work at my second job on the weekends and build skills in a different field of nursing. I love my job currently in teaching mental health but it feels good to branch out and relearn old skills.

I like that my husband filled up the tires on my bike last night - even though he was pretty busy - because he knew it was important to me.

Quoting Deanna from the first post -

"I'd like to see postings of positive thoughts here. There is research that shows that if you can find something positive to say about yourself, someone else or your surroundings that it drastically changes your mood to positive. Let's try it here."

the weather we are having now -

because even though we think its too hot and too humid we will be missing it in February. Ask me in February and I'll tell you how much better frezing snow and rain is than 100 degree heat indexes in July.

I love the creatures of spring. We have mallard ducks that stop by our yard every day during the spring, drinking from a birdbath and enjoying a nibble of corn that falls from our bird feeders. Sometimes they just sit in the yard and chill out. We also see baby squirrels and bunnies romping around occasionally. So cute!

I like that my husband can figure out technology better than I can. I haven't been able to use my Ipod for some time now. Apparently the USB on our computer was malfunctioning. didn't know that there were more on the back of the tower. I have now uploaded Pod Runner (Couch to 5K) programs onto it. I'm headed out!

Wow that was a really informative blog! That person put a lot of work into it and it is a great resource for others.

I really need to start paying attention to my core. In my family the women all seem to get the "gut". I hate the flabby overhang and I really need to start paying attention to strenghtening those muscles up!

LOL Deanna! I used to have a cat who did that. He also flung litter ALLLLLL over the place, he dug with such fury. Hilarious.

Nothing big happening here this weekend. My TOM is coming soon (ugh) and I feel tired. I did nothing today for exercise, so tomorrow I have to get moving again!

I love animals and will always have them in my life but I really like my cats. I just watched one of them take a poop in the box and then dig to China to cover it up. I mean where does he think it will go already?

Now I'm gonna go and sweep up all the sand he just flung out of the box maybe that will burn some calories!

I like that feeling of accomplishment after I work out. I've never been a person who "enjoys" working out, but I'm moving past that negative connotation and focusing the benefits to be had. This includes not just weight loss, but overall health improvement and energy levels improving.

I also like that it's Friday ! Wooohoooo!!

I like that I have not given up yet despite losing my motivation for weight loss. I have been coming to this site every day so that I can maintain the weight that I am at now. I am trying to stay within my calorie range even though it has been really really hard and I haven't been exercising as much as I should. But I will keep plugging on!

I like the new job I am in. I was so stressed out before when I used to do 4 jobs. Now with this job the previous director didn't really do anything to maintain the department therefore my days are really organized and structured because there is so much to do to get this department up to meeting standards. I like a busy day but not one that feels like I ran around like a chicken without my head but got nothing done.

I like my support group that I go to on Thursday nights for my weight loss. These people are all in the same boat as I am and I feel like I can truly be myself when I go there. I also like it because we have developed friendships and therefore we can all have accountability to each other for this journey. SP has been very good to me but I needed that face to face accountability.

I'd like to see postings of positive thoughts here. There is research that shows that if you can find something positive to say about yourself, someone else or your surroundings that it drastically changes your mood to positive. Let's try it here.

I like that I didn't make any plans for this weekend because it helped me to rest and refocus on my week coming up. I got a lot of little things done around the house that I wouldn't have been able to do during the week.
