    I hope you will still join us when you have a few extra minutes. I feel the encouragement and tips really help me to stay on track.

    My biggest excuse for not exercising is not wanting to break that law of intertia: An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force . . . apparently my unbalanced mind is not forceful enough to get my butt moving.
    Due to some odd twist of fate, I find myself in college at 47 years old. I'm taking an astronomy class, and we're going over Newton's laws this week. Not only does an object at rest tend to stay at rest, but THE LARGER THE MASS, the harder it is to get it moving! So that's my problem!

    I've been on a chard kick! I sautée it with raisins and pine nuts, and eat it as a snack between breakfast and lunch. Nummy!

    I get my sweet craving in the evening, after dinner. I've started drinking a small cup of low fat milk. At first I was adding Quik, but I often just drink the milk now and it soothes the sweet tooth.

    Or get a bag of Hershey's miniatures, and allow yourself a couple a day.

    Finally - I have had so much trouble with this computer. It doesn't recognize my password or sign in - even though I never logged out. Went back to some older e-mails and came i that way. Don't know what kind of bug my computer has now - even with the virus scans, it seems we get something. Read all the back tips - great for exercising and for food buying. I make a fruit salad lots of times. Made a fresh one this morning - raisins, strawberries, peaches and banana. Had that with a small amount of cereal and milk for my breakfast. I'm plenty satisfied.
    We are so snowed in - had about 8" and while for some of you that's not much, for east Tennessee, that's plenty. I moved here from Colorado, so was used to the heavy winters and snow driving, but lots of people here can't drive on their side of the middle line on a good day - don't know how they'll be when they can't really find that middle line under the snow! Had my weekly groceries bought and have lots of food should we get stuck for longer than anticipated. Have been fortunate that our power is still on, but have a Coleman stove and fuel, just in case for that. Think I'm good. Of course, I'll have to add one more excuse of why I can't exercise!!! Or maybe, that should be I exercise to keep warm...

    how serious am I------i ate whole wheat bread this morning and I hate whole wheat bread. I will get use to it.

    onetomatoplant the larger the mass the harder it is to get moving--love it. So true. I have to get off here and get moving.

    Hubby came thru on surgery fine. Was a ligament tear instead of rotator cuff tear. Whew, faster healing time. Now he has to be sure and workout on the bow flex that is covered with stuff in the garage. guess what I will be doing as well. yep, here it comes. We both will be looking good by the time the family comes for daughters graduations.
    My 2 year old dd was just accepted into Whitworth University, private school that carries clout So Pumped. Then youngest DD got another solo in choir. Wonderful blessings.

    I haven't weighed in yet this week. I did however, finish the quilt for my cousin's daughter. I'll take pictures when I give it to her and post pictures. She's 8 and doesn't even know I made it for her. Should be exciting when I deliver it.

    My keyboard does not like this website for some reason and it takes me twice as long to type a message and I still miss the letters. Yes, 20 she is and single. Hint hint.

    I weighed in this am and lost another four pounds. That is seven so far this month. I think working with the new puppy is helping on the exercise. my hips are sore today from our short run last night, but she is up and moving just fine.

    Tip of the Day: Fit Activity into Your Commute

    Get off the bus or subway one stop early and walk or skate the rest of the way. It's an easy way to fit an extra 10 minutes of physical activity into your day.

    Well I did my mid month weigh in and . . . I've lost 2 pounds!!! Not much, but it's good to be on a downward slide again. I have added calisthenics to my regimen. Not by choice, but the latch on the driver's door of my car is busted. Since I'm laid off there is no money for major car repairs. So I am using the passenger door and crawling over. Yikes!

    Well I got some exercise last night. Not exactly my choice of things to do. We got another 4 inches of snow so I had to shovel the driveway etc. We actually had most of a day above freezing on Thursday so the snow started to melt. Not today, it is 9 degrees today. When I got home last night the roads were awful. The first of the snow that fell kinda melted on the roads, so there is ice under the snow.
    I layered a quilt last night so I guess I will quilt it today. I am still trying to get some of the UFO's out of here. THis one is a birthday gift. Her birthday is Wednesday.

    Big news for me! I made it to onederland!! By .2 but it still counts. Now to keep on this downward trend. The first 9 days of March we will be on vacation and that usually is a challenge. But we are going to France and everyone is skinny there so they must have tiny portions, right? Maybe I can be in the running for the batiks!
    I got the birthday table runner all quilted yesterday so now it just needs a binding. I started this in a class probably 4 years ago. I wanted to learn to do machine applique. The cutting out took so long that we hardly got anything sewn together let alone doing any applique. I made it my goal to finish it before my first grandchild's first birthday. Her party is a week from today so it looks like i will make it. Woohoo!
    Today I plan to work on my medallion quilt. Then there are still 2 baby girl quilts to make. One due in March and one in April. One of these times I hope to make a king size quilt for my bed. It keep getting pushed lower on my list.
    I see a 40 in our forecast for next week. Seems unbelievable at this point. A lot of people in our towns having frozen pipes. I guess the bitter cold for 2 months has made the frostline go much deeper than normal. We are out in the country and have a well.

    Congratulations Pam great work. I am still fighting to get there. I wanted to join the medallion group and the mystery group on here but I decided I have way too many other projects going on. I am trying to finish up a bunch of UFO's. One of the UFO's that I took to last years retreat is still a UFO. All it needs is a sleeve to hang it.
    I am finishing up a quilt for my SIL 50th birthday. It is Wednesday. I started quilting it yesterday. The way I am quilting it I need to go over the whole thing twice. I have the first pass finished. I also need to figure out what to do in the borders. It is a scrappy purple quilt. I love how it came out.
    We have lots of frozen pipes around here too. Luckily not in my house. They are predicting 50 degrees later this week here. I need to wash my car it is so gross. My car came with free lifetime car washes, but it has been closed for weeks due to the cold.

    Tip of the Day: Add Fruit to Your Menu

    Include fruit at dinner! Add crushed pineapple to coleslaw or include orange sections or grapes in a salad.

    Tip of the Day: Turn One Meal into Many

    Make more brown rice than you need and freeze the rest for when you make a soup or casserole.
