First things first, there was another loss in the community. My friend Josie just lost her Uncle. If you can, head on over to bless her. It’s been a tough week.
On another, more positive note, one of my blogging buddies, Ricky, posted a challenge for himself, and a group of his readers has decided to join in. And I thought it would be great to get as many people to join in. For as much as you can. Well, here’s the story. Ricky is going to donate $1 to charity for each pound he loses. He posted this plan on his blog, and one person decided to match it. I thought it sounded like fun, but our budget isn’t that big, so I offered to do $0.50 for each pound he loses. Then two other people joined in. Now Ricky is at $3.50 donation for every pound he loses. And he’s already lost 75+ pounds. So, anyone else want to join in? Head on over to his blog and chime in.
Anna and I had a fun Valentine’s Day. We went out to brunch after church with my brother and his fiancee, and then the four of us had some fun with paint and canvases. Here are my pictures:

Saturday: 2,110 Calories
Sunday: 3,400 Calories
Monday: 1,965 Calories
Running Total: 7,475 Calories (Average daily: 2,492 Calories) Average is a little high right now, but I’m confident that they’re quite accurate. And, I would burn 2700 Calories a day without any exercise, so I’m not too worried.
