Well this evening I went back to working out,. I did an hour of Zumba. I swam for 20 minutes. I wanted to at least get 30 minutes in the swim.but a little child threw up in the pool so everyone had to get out. I have been away from working out for awhile, using too many excuses. Actually felt good even though it was blazing hot, even with the air conditioner on. I came home & grilled eggplant & squash so good.

Today was a tough day at work very busy,at times stressful. I had a healthy lunch today & a very light dinner.I managed to eat a combination of 1 fruit, & 4 vegetable. More than normal. I only had 2 glasses of water. I need to get on with that. I did not get a chance to really work out just a 10 min walk. I had a family matter that took that away . I could have done a lot better, but I am starting out good. The stress I had today due to work & the family issue today, I did not allow it to let myself eat endlessly as I usually do. So I guess I can say after all it was really not so bad when I could have really over indulged. Tomorrow is another day where I shall do my best to add one more fruit, one more vegetable & a better & more work out.

I talked to my husband this morning as we were walking , I told him how disgusted I am with my self about not losing weight. We always go to Cape Hatteras on the Outer Banks in North Carolina . We have not been there for 3 years due to my Mom having knee replacement, & my step Dad being sick,, & I did not want to leave them. We made plans to go next year, so I had mentioned to my husband I want to lose 20 pounds before we go as my goal set. So he suggested as my goal if I do not lose the 20 pounds by next year we do not go. That has sent my mind racing . Now I must do this. I have been a big lax on exercising. I need to go back I have made all kinds of good sounding excuses that sure sound good at the time. So the good walk this morning & the talk we had as encouraged me to fight this big SLUMP I am in. ( Karen help ) I really really want this trip next year.
I am going to feel the sand between my toes, watching the early morning sun peeking up over the ocean horizon. In the early morning hours I will take my chair near the waters edge & dip my feet in so the ocean washes over them, while reading a good book with the breeze of the ocean sweeping back my hair. I want to hear the sea gulls giving out wake up calls, & watching them swirl above me doing their waltz. I want to smell the salty air. I want to pick seashells & chase sand crabs as they scurry into their homes. I want the sun to slightly kiss my cheeks so I have a rosy glow. I want the sea grasses touching my legs as I climb the sand dune. I want to lay on the beach at night watching the light house sweeping across the dark waters. When it is time to leave my paradise I will be going with a few sprinkles of sand in my shoes, my sun kissed cheeks & memories to tide me over the cold winter months to come. I will meet my goal to dip my feet into the ocean edge.

Our KFC folded up in our town, so my Mom wanted to go there for dinner tonight in another town. I had grilled chicken, cole slaw, & lemonade, dang I came home & looked up the calorie count on lemonade> A whole rounded number of 200 calories. Even though I stayed in range of my calories I was not happy with this. From now on before I go out I will scan the nutrition brochure of the restaurant.
On a lighter note I had my hair highlighted today & that was a nice booster for me, I like it made me feel better,now in 4 weeks I will get my hair permed. I like the curls so I can just wet it from the shower scrunch it & I am done. Evening is now drawing in & I am happy about how the day went for my eating. I could have had a bucket of chicken, extra crispy, but ordered the two grilled small pieces. NO MORE KFC LEMONADE!!! I actually ordered it because I thought there was barely any calories in it.
