We were at Disneyland for 3 full days, and I do mean full. Had 20,000+ steps every day. Went on 3 roller coasters, not the big one. The evening water show, Fantasmic, was fantastic. We watched the one at California Adventure but couldn’t get a place to see all the characters. Even then the water show was beautiful. The best ride in the two parks was Soarin over California. We went on it twice and could have gone again. It’s A Small World was definitely worth singing, I mean seeing.
I was also impressed with how clean the parks were and how polite and positive everyone was.
I think our GS favorite ride was Autopia. You get to “drive” a car. There is a thing between the wheels so you can’t leave the path but he thought it was great that he got to drive. Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster was his next favorite.
It's A Small World
The first time on the Jungle Cruise we had an excellent guide. He had a lot of puns. The second trip the guide wasn't near as good and we wouldn't have gone again if we would have had her first.
The Matterhorn Bobsleds
I had to go on the Teacups.
We had a blast! Wish we could take all our GC there.
This morning was an eye-opener for me. I put on 2 lbs since July one. I have been out of the obese range since I started keeping track of my weight on 5/31. I was only overweight at that time, but today has put me back into the obese range.
In Romans 5 this morning, I was reading about perseverance. Then on SparkPeople's Official Virtual Walk/Run Challenge the question of the day is "Do you check your BMI?". I hadn't checked it since I got out of the obese range. Today's weight just put me over the line. :-(
These two things are just what I needed to see before I go on vacation. I had planned on eating a salad, as a meal, once a day and not worrying about what else I ate. I haven't been posting in my food tracker since Friday and found out what the results of not posting are.
Change of plans!!! I will start posting in my food tracker today and keep track of everything I put into my mouth!!! I can do this!!! I will do this!!!
Today my DB and SIL get here. They are the nicest company to have if you know what I mean. They just fit right in and are very relaxing to be with. We enjoy having them so much.
We watched the fireworks at Fruita last night. They had a nice display. Our 15 minute drive home only took about 30 minutes. That isn't too bad. Traffic was slow but kept moving right along.
I probably won't be on SP much until the 23rd. Wow, that is a long time. I don't know if I will be able to stand it. I am going to do my best to eat right. I know I will get enough exercise. I think some people take vacations and have a relaxing good time. I'm just like a kid and am afraid I'm going to miss something so our vacations are usually jam-packed. DH has been saying for the past month that he is concerned that I have too much planned. I figure that we will only be that way once and need to see and do "everything".
At Disneyland we are staying in one of Disney's hotels and I figure that if we need to we can take turns taking our grandson to the park so we can each get some rest. Although, if I rest, I may miss something LOL.
I had a goal of 1000 fitness minutes for this month and I finally made it. I found out that is a lot of fitness minutes. Wasn't sure I was going to make it, but I made it with a day to spare.
I have been busy cleaning house, exercising and getting ready for our trip to Disneyland. We leave a week from tomorrow and I'm counting the days. I'm so excited that you would think that I'm 7 instead of 71. We have never been there and are taking our 13 yo GS.
I was going to start packing this past Monday but have been too busy. Today I need to finish organizing my kitchen for the Healthy Cooking Challenge. I have one drawer left to clean out.
