Hello All, Something is up with my blog.  I am having problems trying to comment on your posts.  It says I am not logged in, and I am.  Not sure what the deal is.

In the meantime, all my best wishes to all of you.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  Love Carla

Starting to Breathe Again

Things are beginning to head back to normal.  We are so tired, the adrenaline that both my son and I had going, from the stress of the last couple weeks, has left us feeling wrung out.  He is feeling worse than me.  The amount and seriousness of the situations coming at us was unbelievable.  The one thing we feared most, it appears is not going to happen.  That is a huge burden lifted. 

I will be back to my exercise video tomorrow.  I did none last week.  Eating should be back on track too. 

I want to introduce you to the joys in my life.

This is my grandson Cade.  I just love his rosy cheeks.  He has dimples, but you can just barely see them.  He is 10 years old.

This is my son Donald and Cade, a few years ago. 

Have to get to bed, so I can get up bright and early to exercise.  I hope everyone has a great week.  Thank you all so much for your friendship.  You have made a huge difference in my life and I am grateful.  Love Carla

Things are just so bad right now, with no end in sight.  My son's girlfriend had a miscarriage yesterday, as just an example.  All I want to do is eat. And eat. And eat.  It would appear, I am a stress eater.  The crunchier and the saltier the better.  I am back to my candy bars in the afternoon.  They don't make me feel better, but I just want them anyway.  However, I did get some pretzels, carrots and hummus to bring to work.  I just cannot focus on anything, to plan.  I am too worried and distracted.  At least work, as far as I know, is going well.  I am current on everything.

Checking In

Hello All, I hope everyone is doing well.  I'm sorry I haven't been around, but I do think of all of you everyday and am cheering you on.  There has been much sadness and difficulties in our home the last few weeks and I am just numb.  I can't really think about much else.  I can't really bring myself to write about myself.  Plus, we have disconnected our internet and access is very limited.

On the weightloss front, I am still chipping away at my 100+ pounds to lose, bit by bit.  I have added a chair aerobics video, Monday thru Friday.  Also, I am trying to learn how to do yoga.  It is a lot more difficult than it looks.  I am still walking my 6-8 circuits at work everyday.  Eating is still on track.  Sometimes I have snacks, sometimes I don't.  I think changing things up like that will help to not get stuck.  I hope.  Today was not such a good day though.  Jamba Juice and a mall lunch.  It was a bourbon chicken plate at a Cajun place.  It was ok, I didn't finish it.  I did however, finish the Jamba Juice.  I haven't had one in forever...Strawberries Wild, my favorite.

Well, I have to go.  Love to all of you.  I hope your week is great.  And, I miss you.  Carla
