Our blog assignment for this week for the BSG is: How does the "Back To School" time affect you? Do you have your partake in any of the back to school grillouts or parties?
Back to school doesn't affect me too much as far as grillouts or parties as my kids are all grown with high school children of their own. So, I don't have to do the back to school shopping and we don't really have any last of the summer barbecues, picnics, etc.
The only real challenge for me involved with back to school is that my grandson is on the varsity football team which means I need to plan ahead for my Friday night dinner and snacks so that I am not tempted by the unhealthy snacks at the games. I do fairly well most weeks as I am not much of a hamburger, hot dog, junk food person. However, sometimes the aroma is very tempting as are the cookies and candy. So, my plan for this football season is to be mindful, eat a healthy dinner and take healthy snacks with me so that I am not so tempted.

This week's Aspire and Inspire BSG blog challenge lead questions are ... Vacation plans this summer? What type of activities are planned, any sightseeing?
At this point my only summer plans are to go to Seaside, Oregon to watch the Miss Oregon pageant for two days.
While at Seaside my activities will include walking the Prom, attending the Miss Oregon parade
and watching the Miss Oregon Pageant in support of my dear friend, Liz, and hopefully watching her be crowned.
On Sunday, after the Miss Oregon is crowned, I will drive back home and prepare for my second leg of my vacation which I will leave on the following day. I fly to Ontario, California on June 30th. My daughter will pick me up and then on July 1st my daughter, grandson and I will drive to Phoenix, Arizona.
On the agent at Phoenix, is a 5 to 6 day stay at resort. While at the resort, our activities will be in the pool and water park
I am sure there will also be lots of other activities included such as walking. I will be having lunch one day with Bill's sister and brother in law who live in the area, and one night my granddaughter wants to have us over to her place for dinner. I feel confident that I will make healthy choices for both of these.
My daughter and grandson are health conscious so we are planning on an active, but healthy vacation filled with lots of fun and happy memories.
