Hello Blogger world! Hope you are all doing swell!

My son had his first snow day Monday (other schools around the state have had a few already, but his rarely closes). Not because we got an obscene amount of snow either. Because we had thunderstorms/rain the night before. In late January. Thats not normal weather here, lol. But the whole winter has been odd anyways. Which I am not huge on the whole cold & cruddy roads, so that's fine with me. 2 more months of official (calendar) winter! I adore spring! So glad it's not too far off, as Peri mentioned.

I don't like seeing the winter stuff break out (shovels, sidewalk salt, etc) early but I have no problem seeing the beach towels, gardening tools, & lawn stuff come out because it's a reminder that spring will come eventually.

Of course, seeing bathing suits & other such cute but skimpier (compared to winter) clothing is also a reminder that there is weight to be lost, which is both good & bad.

Has anyone wandered around Pinterest? Oh my gosh, it's so great for so many things! But addictive. And possibly distracting & motivating in so many ways, not just weight/eating wise, but others.

I hope you all had an awesome start to the week & it continues that way! :)

First of all, thank you to Liz, Peri, & Tracy for your comments (from November & earlier this month.

I wish I were able to do a Foto Friday! Oh how I miss doing those. Hopefully soon I will figure a way on the phone that will be easiest. At least I was able to fanagle links in above for the lovely ladies!

Last week I almost hit my year's high again. But somehow managed to get down a bit before I went farther up. As of this morning, I was at 122.8 which is down overall, but still higher than my year's lowest, not where I want to be, & not close enough to my (first or final) goal.

It is about to turn to midnight. I have to be awake at 5:30am so that I can be to work at 7am. Gotta have time to quickly get ready & de-snow my car & the 5 feet in front of my door to it. Thank goodness I pushed myself to get gas tonight after work so I don't have to do that as well.

According to the weather app on my phone, it is a whopping 9 degrees (F). Winter didn't come for a long time here, first 'real' (& lasting) snow was a week ago. I don't hate winter, or even snow. I hate nasty roads & cold-cold temps. The roads have been nasty a couple times & now it's too cold. Thankfully this cold-cold junk isn't meant to last & it will just be cold soon.

I just want to eat & eat right now! And not because I am physically hungry either.

I was up .2 this morning from yesterday. Honestly I thought it would be more. Yesterday was a new low for the year though.

I need to find a real job. By real, I mean one that pays decently. And perhaps related to my degree (that would be nice).Currently, I make little more than minimum wage & only work part-time. It is one of my 2012 goals, to better my financial situation.

I think soon I might do a post on my goals for the year. I dont actually have them written out anywhere yet, so that'd be good.

I got a new phone Monday, which makes it easier for me to post & check in. Hopefully it will be easier to leave comments too, I haven't gotten to check that yet.

I am sleepy. I couldn't fall asleep last night for a loonngg time & then didn't sleep in. But I did get quite a bit done around the house (cleaning & reorganizing). Still more to do, but today took some chunk out.

Hope you are all having an amazing year so far! :)

Once again, it's been far too long.

I started the year at 124.8lb (Jan 2nd, didn't weigh on the first). My low for the year thus far was 122.8 & as of Tuesday morning I was 123. So I did have some gain, but overall at a loss, though I wish more. I plan on weighing myself in the morning since I did not this morning.

I still need do more work on my eating habits (eating better choices, less often) & add in some exercise. Something because I am tired of feeling & being fat (I am at an overweight BMI) but lacking the motivation to do more about it. My first goal (119) will put me at the high end limit for an average BMI.

Heart you all! :)
