Hello my sweet friends! How was your week last week? I’m thinking in the past couple of weeks, I need a pat on the back. Why do you ask? Let me tell you some facts 🙂 The first week I started, I walked 10.41 miles total. I was encouraged. Last week, I only walked 7.95 miles due to my pain levels being really high from my rheumatoid arthritis and my hip bursitis. But although I was in pain, I ate clean. So eating clean and moving more, drum roll please, I weighed Saturday. And guess what? Are you sitting down? I’m down 16 pounds since we got back from vacation. Now that to me is amazing. That weight loss is from 3 weeks and it’s a high number but I usually start off that way and then narrow down every week. I’m *beyond* excited. Tomorrow I go for my yearly insurance biometrics so that will also give me some panel blood numbers to go by when I get my blood work done again in three months.
So I’m excited. How did you do my friends?

Greetings my sweet friends and Happy Friday!! Just thought I would give you an update on Little Man Houdini. He is now 16 weeks old. Time has flown by, hasn’t it? He’s gotten just a little bit bigger. He’s at a whopping 3.10 pounds now. Mommy better quit feeding him or he’s going to turn into a cow – snorts.
This picture is of him last night before bed time. He wanted to play with mommy so very bad but he was so tired. I have to throw a shout out to my brother Easy across the pond. Easy actually sent me this elephant toy and yes I’m being a great big brother and letting the little guy play with it. See, I’m sharing 🙂
And we are proud to stay that my mommy has officially turned into “one of those moms”. Snorts – she did this to me when I was a baby. You are probably asking what did the silly woman do? Mom woke up at 5AM this morning and then proceeded to wake up daddy to ask him if he had gotten up at all with Houdini. You see the little tyke usually wakes up at least once, usually twice, for a potty break. Daddy said no. Mommy went stir crazy and of course had to wake up Houdini just to make sure he was okay. He was fine – he was sleeping! So he *almost* slept the entire night. Way to go little man!
