From a 3-state trip, in which I had to pack for 3 different activities. Went to see my daughter's family (5 grandkids!), to a crazy quilt retreat, and spent time on both ends of the trip with my husband where he's working.
Came back 3 lbs. heavier, 2 of which are gone already. Not a bad thing, but with all the walking I did I thought maybe I'd lose some. No access to a scale makes it hard to track.
I managed to check in to SP every day, but didn't track any food, another contributor to weight gain. Notice I'm not mentioning the desserts along the way: not only my weakness, but always a contributor to weight gain for me. Proud moment? When my son in law bought the whole family tacos at 10 p.m., and I didn't eat any. I was hungry, too... but didn't need those tacos.
Hope everyone enjoyed the Fourth, and are hitting the trails before the heat comes on!

Since I came very close to the boot camp goals last time, I'm starting over today. The 10 minute "short time" really helps me to know that I can do it, reminiscent of how Chris was when he started this whole SP phenomena. It is just so reachable.
The main roadblocks for me is traveling, which I will do again in a couple of weeks. I'll take my laptop with me, so I'll have no excuses for NOT doing the 10 minutes. The walking and other cardio is easier for me physically, but harder in that it's such a long habit it's easy to be bored with it. So... there you go. Anybody want to accept this challenge again with me?

I saw this on a friend's blog, asking others to "pass it on." It's a good one, and I without hesitation, copied it to paste here. Pretty easy, right?
Breaking these defeating attitudes is harder, but "with the help of my friends," I can do it. Like a proverb, there's more to it than first appears.
Why the butterfly? For one thing, I just thought it was pretty.... but it also symbolized metamorphosis.
Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today,
and forgive myself for my past,
and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself,
To stop making excuses,
And stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my Best
Because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race
and to be a WINNER.

I put in over 1000 minutes of exercise during the 28 day bootcamp just finished. It's so rewarding to feel the new strength in my body, along with the creaking joints of arthritis! I sort of ended with a stumble, though, because I simply forgot to do yesterday's video, though I got in 45 minutes of cardio. I was going to go ahead and claim the reward, but on second thought.... you don't get first place if you lead all the way till right before the finish line, so I think I'll just do the boot camp over again, starting next week (I'm going to leaving town in two days).
I'm sure I'll get some walking in while I'm gone, and I'm going to take my stretch band and my laptop so perhaps I can take advantage of some of the SP videos, but my experience with hotel rooms tells me there's not always room to stretch out on the floor and do anything.
Will be with my husband, who's been gone for 3 weeks. So looking forward to spending time with him, though he'll be working.
Happy summer to everyone!
