It is really beginning to look and feel like Christmas. We have had snow for a couple of days but it isn't "sticking" to the warm ground much. Roads are icy. Winter is here. I got my warm jacket out.

Yes, I am fascinated with Biggest Loser. I agree that this is a jump start to morbily obese people. The ranch is a perfect and sterile environment without Resse's Peanut butter cups or potato chips. If all I had to do was exercise, I think I would do it. I know people can go away to these retreat but they cost a fortune. So, I decided to just get up more and make an effort. The show has inspired my that if they can do it, I can too. Even at home. I am feeling physically much better and I need to get in shape. Losing weight is hard for me and I know I need to do it. So I want to start early this year in making an effort not a resolution . Be healthier. More yucky, I mean yummy, veggies.

On the creative front, I am sewing binding down. I have been crocheting grannies.

Tomorrow is DS wresting tournament. They make me so nervous. I am taking projects, my i pod, and planning to do some Christmas shopping. It is at TC so there is more shopping than here. I am nervous alreading thinking about it. I don't know why, I didn't get this nervous in the past about football when he played!!!!

BTW, have you ever seen the "Everybody Loves Raymond" episode about the approved snack list for the soccer team. I feel like Debra today. There is a list of who is bringing food for the whole team. The parents cater in "healthy" food. It is divided up by weight class. There is an approved/suggested health food list. I have paper plates, cups and napkins this week. I have my rebellious streak rising up but I will suck it up for the team. Hmmm, what's wrong with packing your kid his own lunch!!! If he chooses to eat crap on a stick and not organic chicken in a lite low fat marinara sauce (on the list) what is the big deal... this is high school not the olympics. Enough of my rant

Have a great Friday.

They're really dictating what food they eat?

Not dictating but highly suggesting healthy foods so you don't get sick during a tournament. But I think it is a little over the top.
But I am a rebel that way :)

I had a daughter, yes I said daughter that wrestled on year in high school. She is middle and most girly girl. She wrestled in the lightest weight class. I had to make finger jello, supply apples, bananas ect also. But I had to do that for the swim team also because she was on the swim team along with my youngest daughter. No rice crispy treats alowed. I always thought it was silly because all these kids were in the best of shape. I also remember sitting all day at both wrestling and swiming matches. Loved it but also don't miss it a bit. Hope your son has a good day and wins in his weight group.

Good luck with your diet. The New Year is a good time to start after all the holiday celebration!

Congratulations on your exercise efforts! I'll have a good routine for a while and then I stop. Just getting started is the hardest thing to me!
