I Have So Much To Blog About

So much going on this week so let me get started.

On Saturday during our little snafu ridden getaway, we received a call that a good friend of our family, had passed away.  He was 72. This man has been a part of my life from the get-go. My parents attend the same church my mom grew up in and I had grown up in. His wife had been my Sunday school teacher, she also taught M. His daughters, who are now my friends, used to babysit me and my brother. This man was always happy. Always willing to help. He loved everyone. He and M had a special thing but I didn't know where it had come from. For years they did this. Then the other day my dad and I dropped off food at the house my mom had made for them. And this is what I was told. The wife had been going through some sight issues so he would come in to help her in her Sunday school class where my daughter was. If he didn't do something quite the way she would the wife would say something like am I going to have to fire you? So, my M picked up on this. Every time she saw him (even as recent as Father's Day) she would say, "You're fired."My husband was given the highest honor of being asked to be a pallbearer. They all love P.  the husband and P would talk about their favorite college and pro football teams. I never knew this but he was one of two men who he talked about privately about how much he admired their fathering skills at how patient they are with their kids. He will be GREATLY missed. But,I have hope that I will see him again because of the salvation of Jesus. Thank You Lord for taking away his pain.

My second thing that went on this week was my NP/nutritionist appt. I lost 9 lbs. in 3 weeks. They are ecstatic thrilled I know my calorie/fat/protein counts (why would you do all this and not know?). My nutritiontist said I just need to bump up my calories just a tiny bit! I'm close most days. I've lost already in 5 months what some banders lose in a year, so they are happy with the progress, called me a superstar. Hopefully, it keeps going!!

I went to Zumba for the first time this week. Ok, I have rhythm. Or at least I did I had a hard time keeping up!!! I was still the biggest gal in the room (intimidating). And I was doing fine sore-wise until I stood on my feet for two hours the next day then the Zumba soreness hit like a brick! I have been to the gym this week too!! The stupid scale, which I really need to only look at once a week, hasn't moved this week.  Sigh. But yeah for me exercising more! I'm taking the kids to a waterpark today so I'm sure I'll get my workout there!!!!

Last and most certainly not least, today is P and I's anniversary!! We have been married 15 years today!! I love this man and can't wait to see what the next 15 years hold for us!!!


  1. Sorry for your loss and congratulations on your anniversary.

  2. Wow. What a great weight loss and happy anniversary! I am sorry to hear about your friend.

  3. congrats on your anniversary, great news! It is such a bummer when you don't lose weight in a week, but you've lost some great weight recently! You've also had a stressful week. Zumba scares me :D.

  4. Thanks for the nice comments!!! He was such a sweet man, and will truly be missed by everyone.
