I walked the lake again today. That is a very good thing for me. I keep waiting for it to get easier but so far, it hasn't. It will if I keep at it. While I was walking today I was figuring out tomorrow and when I could get out and walk again. That's real progress for me.
As I did the last time I set out on this journey, I am trying to remember to pick up a stick when my walk is almost done. I have a box in the garage that I throw them into. Sometimes it a little one, sometimes I bring home something a few inches thick. Then, when winter hits, I use these sticks to light a big fire in my fireplace. It feels great to burn away all those calories even if it is symbolically.
So, today I brought home a nice fat one that will burn for a while. I hope the box is overflowing by winter and that I look fabulously thin in that firelight!!!

Last night was another baseball game for my son. He chose not to go to track practice before the game because it was just to much and I completely understood. As usual, he was awesome with a couple of hits and one was infield which he beat out with speed I had never seen before. Wow, this track work is really helping him.
About 1/2 way through the game a man approached me asking if I was Josh's mom. I knew him as the dad of one of the kids on his team so I thought maybe there was an altercation in the dugout (I had seen him in there with the kids.) I braced myself.
Nope, it turns out he is a scout for the county team. No, not local but the entire COUNTY! He asked if we would be interested in having Josh on the summer travel team because he has the makings of an all star. WOW!!!! (I casually asked if his son was on this team and he laughed and said no, he wasn't good enough)
Again WOW! What an honor. We are thrilled, Josh is trilled and now I don't have to worry about what I'm going to do with him over the summer!!
They won their game 10 - 7. The boys were pumped. I'm so happy for my son. As soon as he come back from wrestling camp he starts baseball and as this coach told us, he is going to take Josh to a whole new level.
Ok, off the soap/bragging box now and back to your regularly scheduled program.

Being back here after falling off the wagon, has been a real eye opener. I feel that I am finally back in the "groove" and starting to do what I have to do.
One of the things I have realized that is a MUST is the tracking of food. I know now, that once I stopped tracking, the pounds came back. At the end of the day, I am always astonished at how quickly those calories add up. The fact that I am a petite person makes it even harder because I need less than those that are taller and bigger.
I am just starting....really, just starting to feel a little better. I haven't lost much weight yet but with doing more walking, a little weight work, I am feeling better. More importantly, I am sleeping better, which is huge for me.
Well, I'm off to my son's baseball game. It's freezing outside but I try to never miss one. If you go outside you just might be able to hear me screaming for his team!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
