Yesterday was a really busy day for me. It was my son's 10th birthday, and we had his adopted grandma and her friend from church over for lunch. I did really well making a healthy lunch, except for the cake. My son purposely picked carrot cake, "So you can eat it too mom, even on your Christmas Crunch." He seems to think that since it has a vegetable in it, it is totally OK to eat. Well, it was sweet of him anyway. I ended up eating a small piece of his cake, and less than a scoop of ice cream, but then my stomach started to hurt. And if that wasn't enough, when we went to our friend's house for dinner, and I ate another small piece of cake and another half scoop of ice cream. Due to all the activity, I didn't even exercise or write a crunch-in. So I decided that today would be better.
This morning when I got up, I realized it had snowed last night. It has been really cold lately (-10 F in the mornings), but this morning was a balmy +7 F. My dh has been working so hard lately, I decided to help him with the snow removal. I shoveled snow for 30 minutes. We were gone all day with a meeting for our final payment for our siding/roofing project. I am really thankful the Lord gave us an opportunity to share the gospel with the director there. Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in his heart.
After our meeting we had to buy groceries, and then on to home to make dinner. As soon as I got the kids in bed, I did 10 minutes on my elliptical, and I am about to call it a day.
I have enjoyed reading everyone's progress. We are all making good improvements, and seeing some results. Keep it up everyone. Look at this as an investment into your future.
Here is a picture of some of our recent snow. For those of you missing the snow, enjoy. This picture was taken from my upstairs window at home.
