    @KHill875 - It’s not easy to hold everything together when you’re sleep deprived. I’m glad your daughter is over her stomach flu. Sending good karma to your household for a healthier spring season! It’s worth it to let some tasks go so you can rest — 😴

    @Armygirlarmyof1 - I hope you get some relief from your swelling and stiffness. Gentle movement by cleaning sounds like a good idea!

    Thanks for posting the daily card to help us reflect and get in the right frame of mind to face the day @Pupowl. I’ll try to bring warmth, comfort, and goodwill to everyone I interact with today!

    Onward, ShapeShifters!

    Gm yall. A lot of stiffness I n my left knee. So tes, weight is off because of swelling.
    Cw. 230.8
    Pw 221.8
    Abd it rained here during the night so it added to the puffiness in my left knee and ankle. This is just water retention and nothing else. I'm hoping that all the movement from spring cleaning will eventually catch up. Lol.

    @armygirlarmyof1 I've EXC you from your weigh-in this week because of the swelling. If you feel better by week's end, weigh in on Sat...otherwise, just weigh in next week.

    Are your steps for the 19th really 3.755? I am guessing you forgot the 1 in the front there, but just checking. :)
    @CasandraW
    Thank you, I hope to go back to 'normal' again tomorrow. You had an awesome loss!

    @Pupowl I know it was not like my usual numbers but it is correct.I was unwell all that day & spent most of it in bed.Thankfully I've made up for it since.

    @jessicakrall8, tyvm. I'm hoping some of the spring cleaning stuff will help. Movement different from the normal is what I'm hoping will jog this.

    @PatriceFitnessPal , ty. I'm hoping movement of a different kind will help.

    Thanks for posting the daily card @pupowl. It made me think about songs that give me the chills when I hear them and make me want to sing along. I don’t have a nice voice but I enjoy music. I sing along in the car when I’m driving alone so I don’t ruin the song for anyone else but it makes me smile to see someone else who loves music singing along happily whether they have a pleasant voice or not!

    Shape Shifters — Is there a song that gives you the chills and makes you sing along?

    @PatriceFitnessPal and @Pupowl I also love to sing alone in the car. I have a terrible, off-key voice. Some of my best memories of my daughter’s skating days were when we’d have long drives and sing together. I used to sing songs from Peter Gabriel’s So album in high school… very cathartic

    Foolish Heart by Journey (love Steve Perry's voice)...or any of the hits from Boyz to Men...SO love me a good boy band!

    Thanks for sharing the songs you love to love!

    I’m enjoying them! Journey is a classic (and that hair!). It’s like a trip down Memory Lane to hear Boyz to Men and Peter Gabriel again — I used to listen to ‘Your Eyes’ by Peter Gabriel over and over again in the late 1980’s!

    So fun!

    @LaurieWrobo its not leaving Colorado either! BRRRR

    I'm back from my short trip to Houston and I'm only up .8 from Friday's weigh-in. Not too terrible. I've got a busy but unexciting day today, but will be home for almost two weeks, which will be nice, even though it is awfully cold.

    Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
