As far as my weight loss is going… I gained! I gained about 1.5 pounds. The V’day candy got the best of me. I probably would not have gained if I would have actually exercised but I only got in one day of the Shred last week. So, I didn’t do so hot in either departments. It’s a new week though and I plan on staying away from sweets and attempting to do lots of exercising. I am still determined as ever to get this weight off! By the way, Grandparents, no candy allowed at Easter. Ok, one piece per child. No extra!! I just don’t have the will power!

I’m trying a ‘lighter’ Chicken Pot Pie this time that I found in the newest Parents magazine. The Broccoli and Cheese Soup is a new recipe too and only 140 calories per serving! I’ll let you know how they both turn out! Check out orgjunkie.com for more menu’s and recipes.

In other quick news Eli goes to see the ENT Tuesday afternoon. Please be praying that whatever the Dr suggests is exactly what he needs. Eli finished his round of antibiotics Friday and we had a HORRIBLE night last night. So bad, he and I didn’t make it to church. I can only assume it was ear pain considering he slept great while on the antibiotics, but I guess you never know. I’m praying for a restful night for all of us. I am exhausted.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
