I have finally moved, to a number I haven't been in a long long time, like 30 years..It has taken me over a month to get to 213.5... but I will take it. I have been bouncing around the 215 for like ever...The last couple weeks I have been eating things I haven't for awhile, a bite here and there of this and that has left me with horrible headaches, achy all over, tired, grumpy and my knees have hurt...I was thinking what is going on? But after realizing some of what I have added in my diet had sugar and more wheat and grains...hmmm.

So about three days ago I cut it all back out again and I have already noticed some changes...one being the scales...it will take awhile to get the stuff out of my system again.

I am going today to join Curves for the winter..they also have zummba classes and Yoga...So looking forward to doing this with a good friend. This will get me out of the house during the cold cloudy dreary days.

So glad to see October here and September gone...it was a stressfull, sad, full of emotions month. Just a little of what went on was, 10 of the children from my childrens school lost 5 parents in different situations all in a weeks time..Sad situation and a couple of them hit close to us. Then 5 students the following week were in a awful car wreak...One still in hospital and was given 3 percent chance of ever being normal again..Well God is answering prayers on this and he is recovering more and more everyday. Another one of the students won't be back to school for a couple more months.. still can't walk, she had a crushed pelivic and lung along with other ingury's. Then if that wasn't enough 3 of our students are being charged with aggrevated burglery and rape..of a couple in the neighborhood...Now your thinking what kind of neighborhood do you live in...I will just say middle to upper class and it doesn't matter any more who you are or where you live stuff happens...One of the guys was our Mr Football for our state 2 years in a row with a promising career in pro football if he wanted...It is all in the choices you make each and every minute of your life...
So on to October and the brillance of the colorful leaves..We had a gorgous weekend with temps in the upper 70's and we took advantage of enjoying it all.

Also my youngest got her first job 2 weeks ago, at a place she said she wanted to work at since she was in kindergarden...it is at a Greek restaurant that friends of ours own..she is hostessing and cashier along with taking carry out orders..She has been coming home with tips and we are like how are you getting tips? She said people do tip in carry out!!!!! Oh really I never thought of doing that if I am coming to pick it up...well good for her...
Another thing she is learning is that everyone pays taxes to Uncle Sam and that it isn't just mom and dad.. she was counting up her hours and said my paycheck will be....., and I said yes but you won't bring that home..they will take out taxes and s.s. and....The look on her face was priceless..she said are you serious...I thought you and dad payed that....LOL
Our oldest is still working and going to college...he is going through some life lesson's of his own and trying to figure it all out...Moving from teenager and high school to college and maturing into a man and what life is like as an adult...Not all about Fun and Games...
So untill next post hope everything is good with everyone and you are enjoying this fall weather wherever you live..
