This weekend was busy, busy, busy!!! I actually think I maintained my weight despite eating cheesecake yesterday! Turkey day was fun and yummy! That was the BEST turkey I've ever had! Black Friday was CRAZY, even though I didn't shop for anything. BF said we should go walk around the mall for exercise. I thought he was crazy! But we did, and it was actually fun. It's always nice when you don't actually have to wait in line to purchase something. Saturday my daughter and I went to a wedding. It was really cool. Luke (the groom) is in the army, so they did the "military arch" thing and it was cool to see so many guys all dressed in their formal military garb. He will be in my prayers, as he will be deployed to Afghanistan soon. (please pray for his and all our troops' safety) Sunday brought Turkey day at my Mom's. It was fun. My little brother is hilarious! He put on my Mom's faux fur dress coat and her derby day hat and told her he was ready to help with the dishes. Wish I had pictures! I made the cheesecake. It was the best I think I've ever made! I only ate 1/16 of it, so I think that's pretty good! (I didn't have any for my B-day, so I was so looking forward to it at this time)
So now I am primed and ready to tackle a hard hitting fitness week. I'm gonna mall walk to day. Hoping to go again at least a couple more days this week too.
Ooooooo, I forgot to tell ya'll the BESTEST part about my whole holiday! I got a new-to-me car!!! It was a gift. (the best EVER!!!). It's a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. It has 33,000 miles! It also has power everything (my old car was manual windows/doors and played tapes). It has a sunroof, leather seats, heated seats, CD player, remote start, 3.8 liter engine (it FLIES), and it is the best car I've ever owned! It was such an unexpected blessing. It's hard to accept a gift of this magnitude. I'm working hard on my receiving abilities. I thank God for blessing my life! I pray I can pay it forward someday!
Now, let's kick some hiney this week!!!

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?
