Hello March!

Last week I decided to give up sweets for Lent. It's an ambitious goal for me. Since I'm a junkie. And I went cold turkey. But after day 3 I started to feel okay. And now it's been 6 days! Sunday I decided to start Weight Watchers online again. I had done it last year for a few months but was very unsuccessful mostly do to my lack of commitment to it. But a good friend went back too so I'm hoping we will both be successful and supportive to each other. Today is day 3 so it should start getting easier after this (if my 3 day theory proves correct!) and it definitely helps to be off sugar. I've also begun a running program to get in shape for a 5K in April. It's called the couch to 5K in like 10 weeks. Or something like that. If that goes well I want to train for the Twin Cities 10 miler which is in October.

Not much else going on around here. I'm working on cards for a swap. Planning layouts to work on during my first group scrapping retreat in a couple weeks. Training Owen to stop doing things that annoy me. Hopefully his future wife will thank me! Today he wrote on the table in my craftroom while I was getting something ready for dinner upstairs. He looked at me, guiltily, when I came back in and I said, "are you supposed to write on the table?" and he said, "no" and I asked him why he did it and he said, "I was just trying something out". I'm glad he's a smart and clever kid. Really, I am. But somedays it would be easier if he weren't so smart and clever!

And now, because it's almost 11pm, I'm off to bed!

Good luck on your training, and WW..I gave up diet coke about 6 weeks ago, hardest thing I've had to give up..I still miss it almost daily, but I know someday I won't even think about it. Now, if I could give up sugar..I'd be making some progress!

Way to go on giving up sugar! I think I'd loose my mind right now trying to do that. LOL Too many of my cravings are sweet - so bad!

I've heard great things about the couch to 5k. You can definitely do it and the WW!

I hope you've had a great sleep, you went to bed three days ago :) And, when you get up, head over to my blog and pick up your award!
