    Beautiful pictures. Monty must be enjoying his walk. Do you guys have no snow?

    We had one day of snow, then it rained and washed it all away. A couple of days ago it hit 60 F (15.5 C) and this morning it was only 18 F (-7.7 C). Drastic changes. They are talking a couple inches maye tomorrow.

    Rings: ✔️
    Walk: 5/3
    Swim: 2/2

    I could have swore I checked my watch before I put it on charge to see if I reached my step goal. There is no excuse for missing my steps by 53. My friend just messaged me to see if I was going to the pool. It’s -28C with the wind chill. I really don’t want to walk there in this cold. I got to be honest. I might just do mini walks and take my bathing suit with me to Niagara Falls. We are not leaving until after lunch now. I am glad because that means one less restaurant meal. I will try and check in tomorrow otherwise I will see you on Wednesday.

    Have a great start to the work week!



    This made me giggle! When you said "take my bathing suit with me to niagra falls" i had a vision of you swimming down the river and over the falls!! Just my British sense of humour! Really hope you had a great time.

    I have been sick this week with a nasty cold. I tried really hard to fight it as this was a busy week for me and I had a lot going on but I just had to accept that I was sick and relax.

    I’m feeling better now so I’m hoping to play catch up and get back to it.

    You can have some of our snow. I always said I didn’t like the heat but I think I have changed to not liking the cold. It’s -28C (-18.4 F) with the wind chill this morning. I know with the weight loss I get cold easy. This winter is the first time I turned the heat on in my apartment. I used to wear tank tops in winter. I don’t even think I used to own a sweater. Not now. Do you find the cold more with your weight loss?

    That is funny. I did enjoy myself. I have been so in my head with my surgeons appointment today so it was nice to unwind.

    Love this thought. With me it definitely depends on the day. I have been playing with my timing of my water intake. I find if I drink too much in the evening besides the bathroom trips, I feel like if I lie on my stomach it’s like I am laying on a water bed. Keep those thoughts coming as I love reading them.

    Sorry to see you go. Best of luck with the weight watchers. It’s a great program. Stop by once in a while and let us know how you are doing. You are welcome to rejoin the team at any time in the future.

    Fantastic loss! Glad you are feeling better. We have to listen to our bodies when it’s telling us to rest.

    I had a great time in Niagara Falls. I actually won $500 in the casino. I am super stressed about my back surgeons appointment. It feels like so much is riding on today. Fingers crossed he has a solution.

    Have a nice day!

    I have been like a bump on a log since Thursday. We got dumped on with another foot of snow on Friday followed by bitter cold for the last 4 days. I haven’t been out of the house, haven’t exercised and haven’t logged a complete day of food. The only up side is that I have been conscious of what I am eating and the scale seems to still be going in the right direction. Today it’s finally supposed to be above zero so I’m gonna get out of this house and get back to the gym! How easy it is to fall back into being “lazy”. At least with intentional activity. 😜

    Actually it is one of my benefits of losing weight. I used to have such a hard time sleeping - always too hot. Now that I have lost weight, that isn't a problem anymore. I like the chill when I am walking (but we aren't anywhere near as cold as you). When I lived in Canada (a long time ago), I found it too cold, and always windy so the wind chill went right through you - Although it was always pretty!
