Often with life we get taken up with what is going on around us. Aging parents who need additional assistance, work, home etc etc. Somewhere in there we lose ourselves to only so many hours in a day. We hang in there and do the best that we can. So if you can't tell I'm struggling, but I am still hanging in there. I may not be able to check in as much as I have been, by the end of the day I'm tired not only physically but mentally. Have challenged myself over the next 30 days to check in every day even if it is just to log my food and activity. Miss all of my spark friends but choices have to be made and logging into the computer after the long days lately just hasn't happened. But keeping myself healthy has to get stuck back into my life or someone will end up taking care of me. Weight loss isn't at the fore front right now, but healthy is. So take care! Talk more soon!

Well back from vacation, and facing the facts that didn't do so hot the last week. But today is a new day and the start of new week. Missed all of my Spark friends but had made up my mind to take a break from computer and telephone except for one work related teleconference.
Vacation was a combination of yard work, small hiking trips, and fishing. We got our garden planted, yeah. DH is finishing up with the tomato plants today. Took several small hiking walks (still not released to do more so still trying to be patient). Then the best was a day spent fishing. Beat the pants off DH 14 to 6 hee hee. Caught 13 Northern Pike, three of which were 32 inches and one.
Back to eating right and not eating non-stop it's amazing how easy it is to slip back into old habits.

Woo Hoo the end of the Healthy Living 100 day challenge at work with a total of 8 lbs lost. The goal was 15 lbs, but still not bad for this old girl, ecspecially since for 6 weeks of the challenge the Dr shut down my physical activity. Portion Control/ Portion Control!!
If it wasn't for this web site and what I have learned here and for the support of all the people who stop in and say hi, I probably would not have lost the 8 lbs, I would have given up. So thanks all!

Took Thursday and Friday off this week thinking I would spend it outside!! It started raining mid morning on Thursday!! Oh well I've been reading alot! There was a little break in the rain looked at my dogs and asked do you want to go for a walk and they were ready to go!! Got out the rain coat and rain pants, loaded the dogs up in the car. And away we went. As soon as we got where I wanted to walk it started to rain but oh well we're covered. It smelled so good, nice and fresh. The dogs had a great time running, these are the same two dogs who the last couple of days have given me the look are you nuts we're not going out there it's raining!! Walked about a mile, trying to work back at it slow and not over due, I just want to keep going.
Had a beautiful drive back, stopped and took pictures of choke cherries blossoms, sand cherry blossoms, some pretty yellow flowers, a blue flower, two turkeys and some mule deer. Thought I was going to share them in this blog but for some reason can't get them to down load so will have to share the pictures later.
