We had a great time at the rally! We are tuckered out! We rode along side 150 scooter friends! We can't wait for next year!I did great sticking to my plan. I went a little over but nothing that's going to wreak my efforts. I was really active. We had some ups and downs. When we got to Austin my husbands scooter didn't want to start. Saturday morning a scooter friend worked on it and got it running. We went riding and even took in a festival. The Pecan St Festival in Austin is fantastic! They had wine Popsicle! (I still counted the calories)Saturday it started to rain hard! We got soaked. Getting caught in a thunderstorm on a scooter is not that fun. Sunday I won the people's choice award for my Ghostbusters Scooter! AND both hubby and I won some raffles and came home with lots of Vespa Swag. All in All we had a great time.
I feel like I left Disneyland. I'm sunburned, I'm exhausted, I'm still wet from riding the water rides but I couldn't be happier. Now someone get me a low cal churro and take me home.

HI friends. I've been really stressed out at work and I feel like stress eating. So far I've been doing good by identifying that I'm not hungry just stressed but I want to just eat and eat. Do you have any suggestions to curb stress eating? Thanks in advance for the advice!
Hi sparkfriends! It's a busy week at work so I won't be able to Spark as much. I'm still sticking to the program and writing everything in but I might not be "seen" as much.
Not only is work busy but I'm gearing up to go out of town this weekend for a scooter rally in Austin, Tx (I reside in San Antonio). I'm excited but abit aprehensive about sticking to my healthy life style.
I have a plan and I've told everyone I'm going with about my fears and so far they are very supportive. Just gotta follow through. So if you don't see as much of Dave and I daily that's why. But I'm still thinking of yall! Have a great week Sparkers! And by all means don't wait for me....keep sparking.
