insert clever title

Still a little nervous about exercising today, I don't want to take any chances with the tummy. Food is pretty good today, I am in the low points as planned. I had some yummy subway for lunch and pasta for dinner. I didn't really snack at all today which is good because snacking is always what kills me. 
I don't really have much else to say pretty boring day, ran some errands and cleaned  the house. I also found out that my grant has been delayed so I out of work for yet another week. On the plus side that means I get to start my semester without worrying about work but on the negative it is another week of no pay.

be fun. Okay, this what we'll do. This late spring, we will go kayaking, (or

Wow those are some big plans and all things that I would never dare to do. But I said yes!

Nancy nailed it. It takes a lot of courage to do something out of our comfort zone. And I truly feel that doing those things is an intregal part of our self healing process. Have a great one!

Good for you for saying YES!!! Now that I am down 68 lbs., I am finding that I am open to doing so many more things that I wouldn't have before.

It sounds like a blast! Now you have something to look forward to and to keep your motivation going!
