Sunday Sharing - What Can I Do For You?
View from Andrews Bald - GSMNP
With some unexpected things on Friday and a quick trip to Nashville yesterday, the past two days have been more hectic than I like. Nashville is about a three hour drive and we rarely make that trip without turning it into a weekend jaunt. This was for Mr. B to attend a mandatory meeting regarding his teaching assignment next spring in Prague and we didn't want to be away from our church this morning since it is the final Sunday in our Fall Festival of Faith and Renewal. So we left home just before 6 yesterday morning and didn't get home until after 7 last evening. The plus side is I did get to spend some time with my sister who lives just outside of Nashville. That's always a treat! Her job situation changed last year and we are not able to spend as much time together as we once did, so we grab any time we can find. We also got to visit the Nashville Farmer's Market which we LOVED! Thanks, Lori, for the suggestion! Ate lunch at a yummy BBQ place inside the market food court. Then we made our way to the Nashville Trader Joe's which was found after waiting out traffic gridlock around the Green Hills Mall area of Nashville. Again thanks, Lori, for the warning!
But as you know, Sunday's posts are a bit different for me. I have grown to love Sunday Sharing and hope you do to. For some reason, it just makes me feel as if I "know" you on a somewhat deeper level and that is important to me. There are new friends reading this week, so please go here to read the original post about Sunday Sharing, how you can participate and what I do with your comments throughout the upcoming week. This means a lot to me and I hope you will choose to share with me on a weekly basis.
For the rest of you, here's a reminder of how this works:
As we start a new week with its gains and losses, ups and downs, triumphs and challenges, joys and sorrows, please leave a comment and tell me some very specific thing that needs to happen in your life this week for you to feel as if you're making progress in a forward direction. Be as honest and specific as you are comfortable being. If it has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss, that is perfectly o.k. This is about your life and what is occupying first place in your mind as you look towards a new week.
For me, please encourage me to remain very strong in my excitement about participation in the Hot 100 Challenge. I have remained 100% true to my goals so far, but am not seeing movement at the scale. I must not become discouraged! On a non-weight loss related issue, we got some news yesterday about Mr. B's teaching assignment in Prague next May that might possibly cause me not to go. It's not a financial issue, but is very discouraging because it is one of the things he covered thoroughly upfront prior to HIS signing of the contract, so we are a bit bummed and are not sure how this is going to turn out.
So talk me, friends............. what very specific thing do you need to have happen in your life this week to feel as if you're making progress in a forward direction?
