Journal your Christmas

My al time favorite class has started and I am so excited. I did work on the manifesto today but it is a digi LO and I am not liking it all that much so I will redo it with paper and glue tomorrow. I will post all my LO here for you to see.

Weight loss update

I am so behind with this blog already. Well I guess it has the right title "It is what it is"
Had a WW weigh in on Thursday and I lost another 1.4lbs this week. I am really working at this, I amd walking about 2 miles most days. With the holidays coming up it is going to be hard to loose, so if I can maintain where I am now I guess I will be happy.
I am doing three classes at once this December, Shimelle's JYC, I am also doing Holiday's in Hand with Jessica Sprague (sorry I can't link it) and I signed up for Karen Grunberg's class at Big Picture. So I should be pretty busy for a while, just hope I can keep up with all of them, although JS class is over in a week kind of, but I will be working on it all of December.

That is all the news that is news

Couple of days late

I was supposed to come back Thursday with a weight loss update and I never did, so sorry. I lost the 1.6 lbs that I gained the week before. This is what has been happening to me for about 4 weeks now, I gain it one week and loose it the next I don't know what that is all about but today I decided to add to my walk, I did just over a mile and half this morning. I will do that for a few days and then add a little more and see if that help.
There is only one more week to Shimelles class and I am going to be sad to see it end but that means it is getting closer to the Journal your Christmas class for this year, can't wait for that

Weight Loss

I had two goals I wanted to reach before I turned 60 this past June. I wanted to quit smoking and loose weight. Well I managed to quit smoking on October 23rd, 2008 and then on April23, 2009 I went back to Weight Watcher's. I am a life time member so I know what it was all about and thought for sure by June I would reach my goal. That was very unrealistic for me, I know now. It is November 9th and I am still 5lbs away from that goal. The last few weeks have been really hard, I loose on week and gain it back the next so I am getting no place and it is a little discouraging to me. I have started to walk my mile and quarter or more 6 days a week so I am hoping that helps.
I weigh in on Thursday so I will be back then

Slacking off

So sorry I haven't blogged the past few days, I won't say I have nothing interesting to say because Shimelle would tell me I am wrong.
I do want to post a few pictures of my big boy dog.
This is Bugs. I just love when he sits up so straight and tall, he looks like a statue, all 105lbs of him. He is a Lab/Plott hound mix and even though he is a tough guy I love him to pieces.

I am going to try and catch up a little bit with Shimelle's class tomorrow.

My Prompt 3 List

I really don't have that many places I go to each and every day. There are a few I check out though. I love Stacey Julian and here.
Another of my favorites is Jessica Sprague

Stacey Jullian posted a link to this blog last week and I think she is adorable,Kristin loves to eat and is a runner.

I will have to think on this some more and add to it later

Have a good day all

Prompt 2--Safety

That prompt really hit home for me today, and a lot of my fellow class mates were feeling the same way.
The reason I took my original blog down was just that reason, I felt like I was putting too much of me out in cyber space for who knows who to read.
I also used to post a lot of my grand babies pictures on my blog so I don't think that was too good either.
Shimelle also made some good points about posting a LO with your house on it that you could see the address and then maybe a month later posting that you were going away for a week. There are a lot of sick minds out there.
I will be a lot more careful how I post my LO on my blog from now on to.
So today I leave all my new blog friends a picture of the beautiful fall colors that surround my house. I do plan on a LO with these views and will post it when I do it
Thanks to everybody who visits.

Day One

Shimelle's new class started today, and now that she has explained it a little more in depth I can see where she is going with this class. It should be very interesting indeed.
I am not going to say I will blog everyday but I will give it my best effort. I like the idea of bloggin now and scrapping it later.
I want to thank all the girls taking this class for all the nice comments on my entries here so far.

One more day

I can't wait until Shimelle's new class starts tomorrow. I am looking forward to haveing my blog looking just like I want it and even get a little scrapbooking done while I am at it.

I have been going around in circles with HP trying to get my "FREE" Windows 7 update for the new computer. Seems the company that is handleing it is chargeing me $12.00 to ship the disc, which is totally crazy
So I am on hold with that right now .

all her fault

Look what I made this morning. It is all Shimelle's fault. Granted her post was all about the cute Halloween printable but how could I resist those cupcakes, especially when I have been craving one for weeks. So I caved and made a batch this morning and totally blew my Weight Watcher's plan for the day, but it was so worth it. So tomorrow it is back on program and hopefully it won't be raining and I can get a long walk in

I want to thank Shimelle and all the girls that are taking the 'Blogging for Scrapebookers' class for all the healp they have given me as far as getting my template in and my side bar gadgets back.
You guys are the best. I can't wait for this class to start because I know I am going to learn a lot
