SO Kady's birthday was last night. My baby is 21!!! WE had a fabulous time and she looked adorable! we sang, dranked and danced and had so much fun... (Natural woman by Aretha. Oh yea, Karaoke happened!)
This pretty much tells the story of the night.. lol.
This morning we are leaving to go to some races about 3 hours away in the mountains and then we are going riding on Sunday through Tuesday and the best part....
Kelly and Kady are going to meet me below RENO then we are driving to Las Vegas to pick up a trailer Weds. am.Frank has to come home to work...... SO that means. my girls and I. In Las Vegas. For one night.... SQUUUUEEEEEEEEEE! SO excited. It will be so much fun!!!
Then we come home late weds so this will be a whirlwind of activities.
What is your plan, Jan? You must be asking yourselves becuase that sounds like an alcohol, bad eating, no excercise next 5 or 6 days!
Limit the booze to one or two days (Captain Morgan and diet pepsi)
Dance when the option comes up and walk the rest of the time. I can ALWAYS go for a walk!
Make the best choices I can for food and keep the sodium down!
Just because I am going to be away from home does not mean I can go crazy!
I am also thinking of my East Coast friends and praying for your safety for yourselves, family, pets,friends and home...
Be safe and be good and I will spark when I can. Otherwise, see ya Thursday with all my news! Love ya!

I am very proud of us.
We are here to change our bodies and our lives.
We are not quitters and we are not giving up.
We may struggle but we persevere
We may get knocked down but we get back up
We may fall victim to temptations but we keep going
We are willing to face the truth, even if it's scary.
We may go up but we don't stop trying to get back down
We try new things, we go with what works, we support each other.
We are all success stories RIGHT NOW because no matter how far you have to go, how much you want to lose, how fast or far you want to run, you have ALREADY accomplished something!
Even if this is your first day and this is the first blog you have ever read, you have made a decision and that will propel you forward to get what you want.
We all started this way. Every one of us clicked and filled out the profile and were scared and doubtful. We all began and that was everything we needed.
We have learned and will learn, ways to be good to ourselves, accept that we are worth this and battle some demons. It will be hard sometimes but it will always be worth it.
And the whole time, I will be cheering for you. I will be listening to you. I will be laughing and crying with you. I will be stunned, overcome, hopeful, amazed, hysterical, jealous and proud. Every day. By every one of you.
We are all going to the same place. Our happy, healthy place. And we will know it when we get there.

I would like to suggest a new item for the Nutritional Tracker.
Let's just call it .....
We could have an additional button such as
"Began with a salad"
" Skipped the desert's"
"Has learned a lot and didn't go crazy"
"Just get a trough"
"Went completly insane"
"Good intentions went out the window at the *asian section or *italian section or *desert section or the *fried whatever section"
"Need a wheelchair to leave the place"
"Stayed in control but still had a few bites of everything that I wanted but could not possibly track every 2 or 3 bites I had of all the different things"
So what inspired this blog, you may ask?
Yesterday, we went to a RV show and headed to the races to watch our buddy's race. You know, how we roll. Anyway, we were early and didnt want to get there too soon so we stopped at this new casino because we have never been there. It was beautiful. Wide open, fun games, a few bars, live music. And a buffet. (Keeping in mind that I had made a fabulous healthy, turkey sandwich to eat later at the races so we didnt have to eat track food. A large Dutch Crunch loaf of bread, fresh sliced turkey, thin slices of Muenster cheese, fresh pickles and Romaine Lettuce leaves with a light spread of Light Mayo). I figured we would have a slice and then share what was left.
So we went to the Buffet. It was gorgeous. The food was beautiful and FRESH. I started with a healthy salad so I wouldn't freak out, had a reasonable amount of food, with 2-4 bites of the stuff I wanted such as tempura chicken, bbq pork, a small slice of pineapple and ham pizza, a taquito.
And then headed to the desert carousel.
OMG... my choices were carrot cake (had 3 bites of the end that has the walnuts on it, had a 2 bite lemon tart (fabulous!) some sort of sugar cookie with rasberry stuff in the middle (gonna attempt to make them for my christmas cookie extravaganza I do every year), a sugar free brownie which was about 2 bites and one of those chocolate chip-coconut-graham cracker-walnut cookie bars).
ALL in all, it was not a complete disaster but really, how would you possibly track all that? If Spark had the above mentioned button, I could select the bottom line and be content. Instead, I am not putting anything for dinner and just made a note that I ate at a buffet. Realistically, I probably had a 1000 calorie meal with a whole bunch of fat.
So, Jan, what happened to that fantastic sounding sandwich? I cut it up and walked around and gave it to the drivers after the races. They were so happy cause 1. They are guys 2. They are always hungry 3. They were happy that I was so thoughtful to them (teehee, I let 'em think it!)
And just out of randomness and because I know you want to see it, here is a recent picture of my granddog, Cortez....

I tracked it and all my food all day and I was golden, baby!
Even with lasagna, even with Garlic bread!!
Then MIL pulls a chocolate cream pie out of the frig (OJIBWEEQUAY, did you CALL HER???).
Yea, I ate it and yea, I went over my calories and fat. Who cares. I dont do that very often and I dont regret it.
Sorry I made you all crazy for lasagna. I bet you can all come up with a delicious recipe that wont even make you feel guilty!
I put the rest of it in the freezer so I can have some more in another 3 months!. God I hope I dont think about it till then!
You say I make you laugh, well you guys crack me up on a daily basis. I love that about us!
