I could live like this forever. We eat well and go to a restaurant once a day. Overall, we are doing okay with the food. Exercise is great too, a combination of hiking, walking and YMCA. I am not weighing myself till I get home.
I bought size 14 pants and I can do them up and I can sit down, they just donít look that great, LOL. I need to loose 15 pounds? My size 16 pants look a little big. I tried on the new clothes and showed hubby how they look, so he knows I have to lose. H won't let me make excuses not to go to the YMCA, he is a man on a mission.
The nights in the mountains are cool, so some nights we have heat on. The weather has been great with occasional rain. During the day we can find shaded or dappled sunlighted areas to hike in. On Sunday we were on a rocky beach at a state park near Bellingham. Itís a beautiful hike through an old cedar forest and steps down to the beach.
Yesterday we were at the Northwest Washington Fair. Itís a lot of fun to go to a farmersí fair, the livestock judging - cows, horses, etc. In the afternoon there was the demolition derby, the contestants are local guys, so there is a lot of cheering.
We had fun with our friends this weekend - going to the casino, getting together for meals, talking, laughing, drinking wine, playing Upwords, Canasta tournaments, golfing. It was too wet to for the womenís golf tournament, so it was postponed till next month and I won't be here for it.
It is getting easier to exercise and eat well, even on vacation - just keep doing the same things we do at home.
