Friday's Friends & Gym Plans Foiled By Mother Nature

Today is a new day! This is the only day that counts!

I have decided to use Friday to say Thank You to some people who haves motivated me each week.  I am just getting started and some people have been very kind and commented to help me through some things.  Others have motivated just by their posts.  I have spent a lot of time reading other people's posts.  There are some great ones out there!

This weeks  Friday's Friends are:

Sky n Surf
Miles For Seconds
Believing in Myself
Diary of An Aspiring Loser
Daily Thoughts

Thanks to all of you.  Take a look at their blogs, if you haven't already.  They all have very inspiring stories.

Now, on to my Gym Plans.  We got freezing rain and sleet through most of the night.  My husband and son are sitting at home too!  Schools are closed.  I don't think I can go to the gym.  It's a half hour drive one way so I don't think it makes sense to get out on icy roads.  If the temperature comes up enough later in the day maybe I can try it then.  Exercising with the two of them at home is not possible.  They stand around and laugh at me.  The distraction is too much.


  1. My husband has choked on his laughter when I've exercised at home while he's there. (darn men!). Reschedule your week...this is now a rest day! :-)

  2. THANK YOU!!!! :)

    Secondly, smack them both in the arm, create a nice playlist, get a decent pair of earphones/ear-buds, go to a room with a lock on the door, start playing the music and dance! :D

  3. When I do my dance DVD, no husbands allowed!!! You did the wise thing staying home, though...not worth risking an ice storm!

  4. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog here. It feels good to know that someone has read something there that may have helped them in some way. I love reading blogs for inspiration and to just feel "together" on this journey. It's so hard, but it feels better knowing that other people are struggling with weight loss too.

    Keep up the good work. I have been doing the losing and gaining thing for awhile. I think that (for me at least) exercise will be the key for lasting success. Keep moving and you will get there! Although I believe it's totally okay to miss a day here and there.

    Also, I totally related to your post about not openly sharing your blog. I have not told anyone in my real life about it which is funny because they have all seen me and obviously know that I am overweight and that I have lost some weight. It's funny how it "scary" it can feel to open up to those closest to us. You are strong to put it out there in your public profile where someone might see it. I am sure they will offer encouragement if/when they notice it.

    Good luck!


Please take a moment and let me know what you think about this post. I love reading your comments. I try to answer every comment, maybe not immediately, but as quickly as I can.

Thanks!!! Betty
