This will be my last entry for at least a week. Tomorrow morning I leave for vacation!!
I have been planning this trip for over 6 months now. I am taking my children (21 and 16) on a cruise to Alaska! We are starting in Seattle and then going up the coast from Canada to Alaska.
I can't wait. Even the children are excited (and that's hard to do at their age!)
We have a lot of excursions planned. We will see Victoria Gardens, go to an eagle preserve and zip line over a bear habitat. Yes, I'm doing that too!!
I am not in the shape I wanted to be when we left but it will not stop me from having a great time.
My dad passed away last year and he left me just enough money to take this trip. He would be thrilled that I am using this for family time. He was certainly a family man!
Wish me luck, it's supposed to be pouring rain when we take off. Yikes!!!
OMG, I'm so excited LOLOLOL-

Sometimes it's important to laugh at ourselves!
This past week I went to my usual grocery store. I was astonished at how sloppy the store was and everywhere I went I was walking in puddles of water. I even slipped a few times and nearly fell. I did see people with mops.
Finally, a man with a mop came over to me. He said, "Excuse me ma'am, you have a case of water in your cart that is leaking."
OMG, no wonder there was water everywhere I went!!
I was so embarrassed but was able to laugh at myself. I think it's a blonde thing :)

Last week I wrote about how my back seized up on me while on the treadmill. I was really frustrated and was icing it, then heat, then ice etc....
It wasn't getting better and today I got worried and went to the Dr. Turns out my back pain was probably not my back at all but a kidney stone. I am just floored!! I have to have a kidney scan this week.
I am so frustrated. I'm leaving for vacation soon and I was looking forward to a great time with my kids and now, well, I just hope I can go feeling good.
The Dr. still thinks I may have hurt my back some but looks like I have this additional problem. I am not happy :(

I was doing really well with my exercise. I was managing about an hour a day on the treadmill on days I didn't work.
On Friday, once again on the treadmill, just as I was about to finish, my back seized up. I was in horrible pain. I could hardly walk. For the next 24 to 48 hours I iced it, then heat, then ice. I was hurting.
Finally today, I thought I was well enough to get back on. I managed to to 30 mins. until I felt a twinge in my back. I stopped. I know that even though I want to get back on the horse I'm not going to be stupid about it. I didn't even break much of a sweat :(
I have to work tomorrow so hopefully on Thursday I will feel well enough to do more than today. I'm so frustrated!!!

I spent another two hours cleaning out my garage today. I found a huge cash of old toys from my children. Sippy cups, towers you put different shapes in, stuffed animals, toy plastic trains.....you get the idea. So much stuff!!
My youngest child is 16. I think it's time to dispose of this stuff. I know that most places won't even resell this because of germs etc. so I got out a huge (actually two) plastic bad and started to throw away stuff.
It was really hard but it feels good to get rid of it. When I am losing weight, really trying to get my eating in order, I find that I need to get other things in order too. It seems to help me somehow, stay on track.
Does anyone else feel this way?
