Weight Loss Challenge for 2015

I did not make resolutions for the new year. Instead I made plans. They are rough but they give me a guideline to go by, and goals for the new year. Among this is weight loss because I miss feeling good just by looking in my mirror.

I will be turning 39 this year. My oldest child is 15 and the youngest is 8. I am not getting any younger, and my life is not what I had envisioned but it is my life just the same. I don't celebrate my birthday, it's not something I care to do.

The holiday treats seem to have added weight to the weight I was already fussing over. I hope to lose 50 pounds by the end of 2015. That's not unreasonable as it is only an average of a little over four pounds a month to lose. About a pound a week. 

What are you fighting in 2015? I have to find motivation to move more; baby steps so I do not strain, tear or break anything.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
