Here Comes The Ox

Yesterday I spent most of the day studying but Larry & I did manage to get out for a little walk. It was cold but very nice to be out in the fresh air and getting some exercise. My weigh in on Thursday went well, I am down another 2.4 lbs. We are quickly approaching the last few meetings remaining in our 20 weeks program and I hope we can gather enough people to do it again. I am happy with my results but still have a long way to go. Having the support of co-workers and friends has really been a big benefit in the weight loss process.

I have finally finished Jocelyn’s blog header that I have been working on. Here is the link to her blog “Hanging By One Red Thread”. She is a fairly new blogger so stop by for a visit.

Last week our kitchen stove decided it was going to go to appliance heaven so Friday our new stove moved in. Today I am going to make corn chowder and bake peanut butter cookies to test it out.


Tomorrow is the beginning of Chinese New Year. 2009 is the year of the Ox. I’m sure lots of you are out celebrating today so whatever events you are participating in I hope you have a wonderful day! Our local Chinese New Year celebration is being held next weekend. I can’t wait to see everyone and celebrate the year of the Ox…hopefully this will be the year we see “Maggie's” precious little face.

牛年吉祥!~ niú nián jí xiáng ~ Good Luck in the Year of the Ox!

I am a "Year of the Ox" person (I was born in 1973). It's supposed to be my year....hmmmmm.....I wonder if that means I'll finally lose those last 15 pounds....:-)
