Big family wedding, couldn't wait. We were going to see family we haven't seen forever. I threw caution to the wind and ate, drank and danced the night away. It was great. Now it's time to pay the piper. But it's o.k.. The quality weight gain ( as my weighwatcher leader calls it) was worth it. I went to Zumba last night and will keep "working it" to get back down and then some !! I noticed Sarge Skinny's bike challenge. I'm all over that ! Let the games begin........

Ok, so it's simple right ? I exercise, I feel better, eat better, sleep better and definitely have better moods. So why don't I stay consistent with it ? I've gotten off track and it's time to get back. That said, it's now in writing, that I will start looking out for myself and get back to exercising. Today is the first day.......

I have to admit, I borrowed this idea from a magazine, but I did make it my own...a sandpail list. Obviously it's a take off on a bucket list, but it's full of things I want to do before summer ends. Summer always comes and goes and I think, "I never did this or that". ( I work in the schools and am off most summers, although I worked part of this summer).
Anyway, my list is full of things like "eat seafood once a week, try a new fruit or veggie once a week and plant 20 new perennials". The tougher things are "go ziplining (thank you Sue !), go to Playland (haven't been since kids were little) and go to the beach. I've actually been checking things off and summer is not over yet !
Officially summer actually ends September 21st and I will probably need all that time to be anywhere near finishing my list ! So, what's on your sandpail list ?

This morning at 3:00, I woke my children up to see the lunar eclipse. Suprisingly, they all climbed out of bed and came with me. It was pretty cool and as they stood rubbing their eyes (16, 14, and 12), I was reminded of the time I dragged a ladder out and climbed a tree in our front yard.
The goal was a sap cycle that had formed about 10 feet up off a branch. I just had to have them taste it, because the sugary ice cycles don't form that often. It was only slightly sugary, but as I watched their eyes light up, I was glad I had made the effort. I guess my point is, take time to make memories with the ones you love. That is what life is all about !

O.k., at the risk of sounding like Pollyanna, today I found alot of good in people around me. It started with a bike ride along a local path. There were so many people, some walking, some riding, some with families, some in couples. You get the idea. But what surprised me was that EVERYONE smiled at me. I don't know if I smiled first, but it didn't matter. Everyone was so happy and it was contagious. It must have been the endorphins and I was thinking that if everyone exercised , the world would be a better place. ( I feel as if I should skip off into the sunset- LOL) Thanks for listening !
