Traveling on vacation & doing GREAT!

Monday, September 29, 2014

Lot's of activity & healthy eating.... no scale so I am judging weight by my jeans! They were a little tight when I left home.

The Safari park was a blast! 6 hours of walking up & down hills. emoticon I came 'home' VERY tired... haven't been walking like that for about a year! The new tiger exhibit was AMAZING! I brought protein bars, but got hungry & instead of frozen sugar treats I opted for carrots emoticon from a children lunch, GREAT FOR ME!!!!! Grilled salmon for dinner, emoticon

I AM keeping to my goals emoticon & being VERY healthy while traveling. emoticon It works best for me! emoticon emoticon

DH is doing well at home without me, so happy for him! I love him so! emoticon LUCKY is doing well traveling with me, too! emoticon We sang Christmas carols & Karen Drucker music emoticon all the way here!

Happy Sparking everyone! emoticon Love you all! Together we can do ANYTHING!!!!! emoticon

Before I go on trip.... Just 1 more handi hint from me!

Thursday, September 25, 2014

My 'go-to snacks" I pack several raw veggie packs, quart sized bags, at beginning of week. Carrots, radishes, peas, celery, cherry tomatoes, cabbage chunks & hard eggs-separate, grab 1 pack & 2 eggs & put in my ice pack lunch pail &sometimes a 100 calorie pack Trader Joes, lite popcorn & I am off & running! I work at home, so I also use this for lunch sometimes, too! I eat about 7 cups of raw veggies a day... so these packs REALLY are convenient for me! Hope this helps someone, too! emoticon

Today, I'm zooming! Working Packing for 10 day driving trip (health foods) I'll be walking A lot! Seeing many friends! Seeing the Wild animal park, the ocean, Disneyland, a FUN vacation! emoticon LUCK bird is traveling w/ me! emoticon He LOVES Christmas music, the sound track from POLAR EXPRESS emoticon & Perry Como, he also likes the music from the movie "ENCHANTED", (good thing, it is my FAVORITE movie of all time!) DH is staying home & learning to be on his own, again! I KNOW he is ready or I would not be going! emoticon emoticon

I hope your adventure in SparkLand is SPECTACULAR! Keep on keeping on! emoticon emoticon

DH on his B'Day June 2014 (SO happy he is, alive & out of hospital, after 5 months!)

    emoticon Your Snack Packs sound very similar to mine. They do travel well, and it keeps you away from the drive thru and Gas Station/ Convenience Store Deli Counters!

emoticon Sounds like an awesome trip, I can't wait to hear all about it. Stay Safe!!

Getting ready for a trip, working & playing to catch up!

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

I haven't traveled since Oct. 4 2013. I use to travel about every other month. DH is finally able to totally take care of himself, so I feel 'safe' to go. I know it will feel a little odd, but I need to take some 'me' time with my friends. I'll be gone about 10 days & hope to see many friends! emoticon

I'll be on Spark just enough to keep my goals in focus! I leave Saturday. So you may not hear from me for awhile, BUT I am thinking of you! My weight is finally coming down, back into maintenance view, again! 15 extra walking minutes EVERDAY with LUCY has helped! Also, not allot of salt or sodium, etc. Traveling always helps me STAY very FOCUSED on eating VERY well, plus lot's of exercise! I'll take my DVDs with me, Zumba; belly dancing; Sheppard Pilates, PLUS I'll be walking all over S.CA emoticon emoticon emoticon


DH & I last month

Let's keep to our FOCUS & know life is SO much better with each other! emoticon

emoticon It sure is fun being a featured SP blogger! I all most didn't do it at all!
I have never been on 'social media' SP is my only 1. I didn't think what I had to say was really important to any one else!

emoticon to everyone who wrote to me! I'm SO glad the teachings of SP that have helped me, help YOU! That's what SP is all about, right? emoticon

Happy, healthy weekend!

Happy Monday! I performed BARBRA marionette this weekend, the audience LOVED her! She sang "AT THE SAME TIME" emoticon

Flash Mob on Sunday was a BLAST off! A couple from Mexico got engaged! About 70 of us, dancing Salsa! IT was SO fun! emoticon

Making plans to perform at a Renaissance fair near San Diego at end of Sept. Full costume (which fits because of SPARKPEOPLE!!!) , I will bring my Jester marionette, PIPPIN & another little 1 I bought, (we usually perform with ones we have made) so cute! Just for fun! emoticon

Hope your goals are transforming you, mine are! emoticon emoticon


Me in a mirror that makes me 40# less! WOW!
