Thanks Mern for holding down the ship by yourself pretty much all weekend.
I had my first green smoothie today. It was easy to log the ingredients.
I also went snow shoeing, which has become a Sunday routine. 60 minutes. As timed by my nieghbour I go with who uses a timer and keeps us on track.
Glad to see you getting back on Cassie. I have continued to have no problem logging in. Don't know why.
Mern, I have been reading and enjoying your posts even though I had nothing to say today. And I agree. Big hugs to anybody struggling right now.
Caty I think you came to the right place to get support for your journey.
Joanna. I am very envious of your progress running and it is motivating me. I run very slow and so I need to speed up. Went to a Zombie Run back in November, that was all sprinting. It was really fun. 5 k being chased by zombies. There is a monthly "Blood Monitor" fundraising 5 k. I went to the first one but have not gone back. I need to go. Thank you.

Mern, I noticed your weight loss! Great job! I have 6 siblings (2 brothers and 4 sisters). Only the 2 brothers have grandkids. My older brother has 9 grandkids, but they all live in Florida. My younger brother, who lives in the Chicago area near me has 2 little boys, about the same ages as my granddaughters. It's fun to compare the differences between the boys and girls.
