Brilliant Day...

Sunday, October 10, 2010

have had a great day today even though the weather certainly left something tobe desired......one would think it was winter again instead of being spring....BRRR....

My eating went totally to plan today which has been really motivating....I came back from my trip so elated that I had been away 3 weeks without tracking what i ate and a 100 gram gain was nothing so it motivated me to focus and try for the goal I set myself coming home of getting to my goal weight by the 19th of November......I am certainly going to give it a good go......
If anyone out there feels like keeping me accountable please feel free......

I have also uploaded a couple of photos from my daughters big day for you to view......
May put a couple more in my gallery when i sort them....

Today was also the first time I have got to church in 4 weeks which was awesome......really great to catchup with everyone again.....

Have an awesome sunday everyone..
Blessings.....

    I'm glad you had such a good time and that you're such a pro now at monitoring yourself! You are doing it Lyn! What a journey you've been on. I'm glad you were able to go to church. I'm hoping that my knee is good enough to make it next week. emoticon emoticon

ETHIOPIA....BACK HOME...

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Hey Everyone.....My BIG adventure is now over and we are back home again.....
It still seems very sureal...the fact we have been and back however the photo's no doubt prove it was real.....

I am so so pleased that we went....I absolutely loved it although I don't think hubby shares the same thoughts.....
It was awesome to see my girl again and she did such a great job with the accommodation she booked us into and also the places she chose to take us to eat...

It was a privilege to be there to witness her wedding.....I mean that Literally....hubby and I were her witnesses.....
Her husband is a real wee honey and felt sorry for him being so so nervous at meeting us.....I think he thought that if we didn't like him then that would be the end of things.....

Didn't eat a lot of their foods however what I did have I enjoyed and will eat more traditional food next time I go.....
I will definitely go again however I think it would be on my own....although that would cause hubby stress the whole time I was away especially knowing what the place is like having been there already.....

The most amazing thing about the trip has been weighing in this morning to find I was 100 grams up from when I left.....I couldn't believe it.....although I made really good choices out of what i had to choose from I really didn't think that I would come back 100 grams from where I left.....I am really stoked at my achievement and am back with some new improved goals and motivation to attain them....

Am so looking forward to catching up with everyone....it may take me a few days to do this however am sure I will get there....

it is nice to be backon SP....I have missed you all.....

Blessings....

    I travel without my husband. We both have a better vacation because of it. You can't MAKE someone like that sort of adventure. I do. He doesn't.

The days are rushing by....
My girl is now in more regular contact wiht me which is good however she is now sending me information that I could have done with a week ago....would have saved some stress and also some $$ for medications that we didn't necessarily need....alll good thouhg....better to be safe than sorry.....

Off this arvo to collect tickets.....starting to get a bit excited although am struggling to know exactly what kids of clothes to pack.....I am sure i will sort it as we go along.....

Everything else is going well today ....long may it all last...
Blessings....
