Our GD graduated from high school last Saturday. It was a long, cold, rainy, snowy, windy drive to get there but it was worth it. Our son and his family went with us in their car (they have 5 kids). It was a beautiful graduation. In the middle of it each student brought a rose to his or her parents. Lots of hugs and tears but it was really neat. There were 30 kids that graduated.
On the way home we stayed all night in Denver and then went to the zoo. There is a lot of construction going on which should be finished next year. I think every grade school student in Denver was there. Had a good time. Rode the train and the carousel. I even got one that went up and down lol.
I gained 3 pounds in 5 days. Have been having problems with my eating for several months and just havenít been able to do what I know I should be doing. For the last 3 days my calorie count has been near the lower end of what SP allows. I got the book Made to Crave from the library and was reading it on the trip to and from the graduation. It must have been what changed my attitude. Iím so glad that I got an attitude change!!! Fortunately I enjoy exercising at the gym. I enjoy their Expresso bikes and have started taking a Zumba Gold class which I love. It is easier than a regular Zumba class. I can only make it through 30 minutes of the class but Iím sure that time will increase.
