I'm going to my BF's parent's this year. I am looking forward to it. I hear his Mom wants us all to hang out aaaaallllllll day like they used to do at her relatives. That's the way it happens at my relatives on holiday's too. But we play games, drink, eat, and really enjoy each others company. Someone always has a new game to play and there are loads of cousins around. When I was little we ended up in the basement playing tag, "pile-on", twister, etc. My memories are of us laughing til we just about puke! Oh, to be a kid again. I'll miss my family this year. We're all really spread out and many of us cousins are now married with kids and have other family obligations. I look forward to seeing them again, but also will enjoy making new memories with my new extended family. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

So I was lamenting with my SP friend Useandlose about weight gain this week. Perhaps I just wasn't ready for 20 pounds? Perhaps I needed to assess my commitment? I just know it sucks and I will have to work hared/smarter to make this work.
At any rate, I had a bit of a revelation while blogging on her page. In a non-hypothetical way, I hate bumps in the road. They damage my car. But my kid loves them. She says WEE every time we hit one and sometimes tells me to "do it again." Of course I don't want to keep hitting bumps on my weight loss journey, but maybe I can have fun with them any way. I challenged my dear friend to have FUN today. To do things kids do for exercise today. You know things like: play tag (you're it!), touched you last (can you see starting that at the office?), running backwards, skipping, hop scotch, jump rope, my favorite=Hula Hooping, crazy dancing, rolling on the floor! Can you think of any more? Let's have an all out, kid-like, fun kinda day! Bumps can be fun. Are you with me?

I had a BLAST this weekend. Lots of fun, friends, and food. Unfortunately, very little activity to go with that folly. It really was fun to be a little careless. I don't think I was waaaaay off the mark, but I won't be too surprised to see a couple pounds that I thought were gone, again. I have told myself repeatedly not to beat myself up over it. But, I am a bit disappointed in myself. I am going to have to work really hard this season to make my dreams come true. I am going to have to be very focused. I am going to have to be strong and conscientious. I am going to have to find joy and fulfillment somewhere other than the table/fridge/pantry. It just seems too easy to go back to my old ways. It's easy to do nothing and be apathetic. It takes so much more effort to care about myself and be responsible for my actions. It's just so easy to blame everything around me. It's so hard, some days, to just do the right thing.
