I'm Here!

I'm still here and working my program. I knew that it would take a few days to get my feet back under me at work, and it might take a while to get back to regular blogging like I like to do. What I didn't anticipate was a tree falling on my sister's house in the wee hours of the morning yesterday during a rough storm that blew through. Physically, she's fine and the damage to the house can be repaired, but my heart breaks for her. She's had more than her fair share of trouble the past few years, starting with her husband dying after a horrible battle with cancer. She's managing surprisingly well, but she needs all the prayer and support she can get. There isn't much more I can do for her now. The wait for the insurance adjuster and contractors now begins. While we've experienced nothing like Alabama and Missouri, we've had a lot of storms and a lot of damage. Insurance adjusters and contractors are in short supply. We'll be fine. My family is great to pull together and support one another and for that I am eternally grateful.

But...back to the reason for this blog...I'm doing the low carb thing and shedding the vacation gain. I've recommitted myself to the stair stepper and Wii fit. I have a two day streak going on with them. 65MD is cutting back on portions and exercising as well. It is so much better when he's working a plan too. He's always been totally supportive, but somehow knowing he's trying to shed a few pounds, even with a different plan, makes me feel like we're a team. I've got to do my part to support the team. I will and he will too. I'm sure we'll get great results.


  1. I just found your blog today and I really enjoyed it. You are obviously doing great and incorporating better decisions even when on vacation. Good for you!

  2. prayers to your sis, my whole hometown in alabama was destroyed, thank goodness my family all made it!
    good luck with the low carbbing at work, i know it's a struggle and while i too like you to blog more regularly i'm grateful for what i can get! :)bright blessings my friend! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  3. I'm a big fan of limiting my carbs too. I guess I am sort of a "good carb" dieter because turns out I take in a lot but most are from fruits, veggies and beans and not a lot from grains. We had tornado sirens go off today when I was at the gym. Nothing horrible happened here, thank goodness. Seems like a bad storm season all over.

  4. So sorry about your sister ~ Praying for quick restoration.

    Keep up the great work and stay focused!
