AHG PenPal: September 2018

Ashlyn and her PenPal, Caroline, are still going strong this year writing back and forth to each other.  We were behind for September, but Ashlyn finished her letter at the end of the month in order to get it in the mail.  Her letter focused on her grandparents coming to visit on Grandparent's Day at school on Friday, September 14, 2018.

AHG PenPal: August 2018

August went by quickly with back to school starting and the end of summer coming to a close.  This past weekend, Ashlyn wrote to her PenPal, Caroline, about school starting back up.  She drew her a picture of the playground at school too which includes four squares and the swing set.  Ashlyn has really enjoyed writing to her PenPal and watching the mail for letters.

Weight Watchers: Practice Gratitude

I went this morning to Weight Watchers to weigh in. Today's topic focused on practicing gratitude.  We discussed focusing on the good and not the bad.  Growing up, my mom always reminded us to find the good.  Through weight loss or maintenance, it is easy to get distracted and focus on went wrong.

We also discussed ensuring we are changing our habits.  I shared how I joined Camp Gladiator back in July which has helped to increase my energy levels and lower my stress levels.   I may still be over my goal, but I lost 3.6 lbs since my last weigh in!

What are you grateful for today?
