Had a wonderful 3 day weekend

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

We had beautiful weather and what fun. There were 27 cars who traveled together up and down and around through the countryside to Bowling Green Kentucky. It was a little foggy going down but the rest of the time it was 70's and sunny. Gorgeous countryside. It wasn't peak leaf season...as it looks like it had already peaked ...but there were plenty of beautiful trees left. The getting away was good and relaxing. Will try to upload some pictures later. Went to National Corvette Museum and yesterday we toured the Corvette manufacturing plant. It was a good get away.

Now back to work....and getting back to my routine and my nice bed.

Son and daughter in law flying back today and will be here for awhile before they head home tonight. Hubby picking them up from the airport.

Off to make it a great day!

    Wow...a 27 car caravan sounds awesome. I imagine the scenery was great but the fun of being with friends like that is priceless. Glad you had a great time. Have a sparking good day, Karen emoticon

Looking forward to our trip!

Friday, October 21, 2011

Got a meeting first thing this AM. Am at the office alone for awhile this AM. Co-worker taking hubby for some dental surgery. When she gets back will be doing some running and picking up supplies for work. Always like getting out of the office. Hopefully it isn't rainy out like it's been the last two days.

Have to focus on packing for our trip tomorrow. We are meeting up at 8 am but about a 45 minute drive from here. Heading for a long weekend trip to wander around Kentucky and tour around. Think there are about 45 cars going. Should be fun. Hoping to see some fall color and have a relaxing time away. Touring Corvette Museum and Monday touring Corvette Plant where they make them. Hubby is so excited. He's talked about what to pack all week and I've had so much going on I can't focus on it except to keep the laundry up.

I'm a scale addict and am seeing the scale go down some. Hopefully I stay on track for weigh in tomorrow. Love seeing the scal go down. Haven't seen that weight for a long time. Am also feeling thinner. Not so bloated. Nothing feels as good as thin feels. Have seen that on other's blogs...and it's true. Pumps me up as I see success. Finding I can even eat treats and still loose weight. My portions have gone down and focued on eating more fruits and veggies and I am still full....I am not starving. Learning to have pre-cut up veggies in snack bags and that makes it easier to pack quickly for lunches. I am learning a lot about myself. Finally seeing the scale move in the loss direction really pumps me up. It is slow...but it came on slowly and it will come off slowly. We'll see how I do over the upcoming holiday season....we take one step at a time....

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Just got to see son and daughter in law briefly as hubby took them to airport. Came in late last night to be close to airport to fly off to see my daughter (their sister) in Florida for a few days. Hoping they have nice weather...but getting away will be good for them. They need some time away with no schedules. I went to bed early as I had a long day that started with an early meeting for my boss yesterday and been going alot at night this week and I was tired. My body is still tired but starting to wake up.

Had nice lunch with co-workers celebrating one of our birthdays. NIce that boss lets us all go out when it's someone's birthday and it's his treat.

Off to make it a great day.

Looking forward to fall adventure trip this weekend!

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Well I made it through yesterday. Worked out in the AM at home, took 30 minute walk at lunch, took Mom to Curves and then went to hour line dancing class. I didn't pass out and felt OK. Hips are sore from Line Dancing class.

Both offices getting together for co-worker's BD celebration. Co-worker on maternity leave is bringing her baby and doing lunch with us. Good thing I worked out a lot yesterday...maybe offset today. Can't walk during lunch and it's also cold and rainy outside this AM.

Off to 7:30 meeting for boss this AM so gotta move. Was wondering how to handle this AM and figured I needed the sleep but woke up an hour early so we're good.

Son and daughter in law staying the night as they fly out to see my daughter in Florida and have an early flight tomorrow. As they always run late - not sure if I'll be up when they get here or not.

Off to make it a great day!
