Thankfully, this week has been a successful one. 1.4 pounds down! I only have .8 pounds left to lose the first 30 pounds. Dreams are becoming reality and it feels good. Hopefully next week I can say I've lost 30 pounds.

So, game night was a success. Everyone played and we had a really good time. There was ice skating, horseshoes, archery and a lot more. The Kinect is awesome!
It took a picture of us when we got a high score:

(I told my family their pictures would end up on my blog Saturday.) 

I ran on the dreadmill today. It was torture. My Garmin's battery wasn't charged so I couldn't run around the neighborhood. It was nice to be able to control my speed. When I am running outside, it's harder for me to keep a steady pace. I ran my 2 miles in 23.16 today. I need to start working on running farther though. Maybe if I stick with it consistently again, I can get to 3 miles. That's my next running goal.

Our first rose of the year is blooming. Thought I'd share a picture with you.

I am going to start the new devotional tomorrow. The first thing I have to do is make a list of 25 things that I want to do, be or have. It's supposed to be your first gut reaction. What is your first thought?


  1. To reach your goal of 30 pounds for my first thing on my list. :-) You are doing a good job. Keep it up. Do you use the Garmin to see your speed? I didn't know you could do that.
    Glad the family night worked out. Didn't recognize two of the people but I recognized you and your mom and Lucas. But didn't see a score for your dad!
    I like the idea of you making a list of 25 things. Are you going to share what your 25 things are?
    BTW the rose is beautiful. Keep running and keep your goal in your mind and keep working and striving for that. God bless.

    1. Judi,

      Thanks for all of your comments. I will probably end up sharing at least some of the 25 things. I am having a hard time thinking of that many things.

      I have a Garmin Forerunner watch. It keeps track of speed, distance and other things. It's great!

      That's my older brother and his fiance in the picture. Dad didn't play this game I don't think.

      Thank you very much for the encouragement!
