I usual take the pictures and stay out of the shots but hubby took this in Nashville in the beautiful park.

My back ground on my blog page is in the Nashville Hotel.
Today I am off to help with the lunch program and then ball games tonight and tomorrow night. Then they will start districts on saturday. Fingers are crossed they will make it to state. emoticon

Home again and getting back on track.

Sunday, July 01, 2012

We made it home last night after 8 days of fun. Memphis was great and saw Graceland and Beale Street. Then on to Nashville. I thought Memphis was hot at 100 but while in Nashville it hit 106. A dry heat so didn't bother us too bad. The Grand Old Opry was great - Ricky Skaggs, Little Jimmie Dickens, Marty Stewart and many others. Our dinner theatre the next night was also great with Jeannie Seely. So much to see. When I get a chance to get my pictures downloaded I will put some on here.

I tried to watch what I ate but did gain 2 pounds back. I decided it is ok for it could have been worst with all the temptations out there. I did get lots of walking in. Probably did at least 2 miles if not more a day. Plus I would get up early every morning and do a fast walk around the hotels at least three times around. Now to get back to eating right.

Need to catch up with all and hope everyone had a great week also. emoticon emoticon

    Welcome home! Sounds like a fabulous trip, hot but fabulous emoticon. You did great, only a 2 lb gain? Likely that will come off quickly, chances are it was from more salt and/or fats in your diet, restaurants use way more salt and oils/butter than most of us who are on a healthier plan.
emoticonfor doing all that walking and in that heat. I can't wait to see pictures, we've missed you here and look forward to catching up.

I will not let this get me down

Saturday, June 23, 2012

I wanted to hit 185 this morning before leaving for 8 days and thought I had it. But with the excitment and some lack of sleep the other night I stuck around 186.5. My body just works so strange and all I can hope for is the best during the week. If I don't gain while gone I will be happy. I keep going over what I can and can't eat so hope I have it in my mind and will stick to it. But can't let it get in my way of a good time.

I hope all my spark friends have a super week and when I get back we can caught up.


Excitment for a great week.

I have been so busy running after kids and their ball games but love it and wouldn't do it any other way. The big day is tomorrow when we leave for out trip. I have been so excited all week. I plan to weigh in in the morning so see where I sit before leaving. My goal was 185 which I have bouncing around. Last night was a tough nite for me. My legs were jumpy and I had trouble sleeping, so today I feel alittle out of sorts. "This too shall pass".

The journey is slow but that means it will last. How can you ever let yourself go and then have to work hard on getting back. Back in 1970 I went to Diet Center and lost down to 140. That is what the charts said I should weigh. I was sick all the time and ended up at the doctors office. He said it was too small for me, he didn't care what the chart said. So I started gaining back but then let it get out of control. When the back starting getting real bad and I was shocked to see the scale say 214 I really hit a brick wall. I tell everyone that I need to and will loss this weight for my back but that is only part of it. I need to loss to make myself like myself! I will be smart this time around, I go to where I feel good about me. I am thinking that is about 160. We shall see. emoticon and think before putting the wrong stuff in my mouth. emoticon to any temptions, emoticon take this awesome trip of life to the max.

    I am with you, this is for keeps, forever, not a diet and I want to be able to maintain for the rest of my life. I, too, know it will be a struggle as I have been indulging in bad food habits my entire life! Too much practice with bad habits and not enough with good - so I know it is gonna take time to really, really get the good habits to sink in deep. Longer this takes, the more practice I get in! Spark ON! And have fun on your trip!!!
