I opened up a spark e-mail and it said that I had gotten enough votes to be nominated as a spark motivator! I was speechless! Well not really! But no one was listening to me telling them about it. Becky finally comes in the office and said what were you trying to tell me? What was Rodney Dangerfield's reply? I get no respect!
I find it hard to believe that I could be nominated for a motivator. Mainly because this time lossing weight and exercising has been so easy for me. I know it's never easy but this time it has been so easy! It has all made sense and everything has fallen into place. All my prayers have been answered. I remember as a child in bed late at night I would look out the window and keep my eyes closed and when I was ready I would say star light star bright first star I see tonight I wish I may I wish I might have this wish I wish tonight. Then I would spot my star and make my wish. It was always the same wish. Please make me thin and pretty. When that never worked in my prayers every night I would ask God to please make me thin and pretty.
When they say in God's time they are not kidding. He made me willing to absorb everything that Spark was feeding me. He made me willing to help Becky by agreeing to exercise. Not a thing I take lightly! He made me willing to cook! He made me willing to sit and read at the computer when I would rather be playing a computer game. He made me willing to answer blogs, topics or questions that really struck a chord with me. I have not always been real easy on people just ask Dusty that. There have been many responses to her questions to the Team 300 lbs. Plus that have come to a screeching halt after one of my entries. I don't mean to offend anyone I just want them to come to their senses andtake that deeper look into themselves to find out what is holding them back from being successful this time. I love all of my teammates and only wish the best for them.
I would like to thank you all for voting or not voing for me (Becky my own sister didn't vote for me) I feel like Sally Fields at the Oscars..They like me they really like me! Oh well, like a famous guy once said. "I am whats I am and thats all that I am."
We took a 3.93 walk this morning! We decided to walk on down to see the destruction of Becky and Tom's home for 36 years being torn down. We got there at 10:15 and were to late! The only thing left was the basement and they were almost finished with that! They were doing two other houses in the same area. We stopped for a Diet coke and went past again and they had already started on the second house. They take so long to build and only minutes to knock down! That's like weight loss only in reverse! LOL

Tom, Becky and I went to the Mustard Day festivities in Mt. Horeb WI today. I have lived here for the past 6 years and missed in until this year. The only reason we went was because it would be the last time that it would be held in Mt Horeb. It is such a lovely community. They have a very nice downtown. There are lots of Norwegiens in that neck of the woods. The smells that were coming from the Restaurant/Bakery were heavenly. We shot that devil right down! In fact the only thing that we did taste test was mustard custard. The local Culver's made it up special for the day. We had heard some disparaging remarks about it and decided to taste it for ourselves. I liked it. There was only a hint of mustard flavor and it was delish! Fortunately it was only a tiny tiny taster spoon.
It was a beautiful day for it. We just didn't get to do a whole lot of walking today.
Have a nice evening!
Today my sister Becky and I decided to Walk down to Subway for lunch with my niece Danielle. Then we walked over to the Hospital for Beck's test . Then home. We did a 3.88 mi. or so walk to do our errands today! It felt so good to walk all over Prairie du Sac and Sauk City. The villages are joined so it's no big deal but it was such an accomplishment for us.
Along the way we saw Becky and Tom's home they lived in for 36 years in preparation for being torn down. I wondered if Beck was going to shed a tear but she said no she didn't have time, she couldn't stop walking because she had her pedometer on and didn't want it to stop. LOL
I did manage to get a picture on my cell phone. If I can figure out how to download it I will post a picture.
The very best part of our day was late afternoon. We were able to attend an ordination of three young men into the priesthood. How exciting it was. I felt so much pride and happiness for them.
Take care and I hope everyone else had as good a day as we did!
Since I came back from Vacation in early July, I have had a very hard time keeping on track. While gone I even lost a pound. Thank goodness we did some walking! When I got back I kept reaching for the "wrong" things especially at the grocery store. I reverted back to sneaking food. I didn't want to have Becky seeing me be "bad". Lord knows I don't need a lecture. Who am I to judge she might not have said anything!
I almost had three straight days of success staying within my range but I went to the pantry before bed and grabbed two cookies. Okay, I thoroughly enjoyed them and should not beat myself up about it but it is easier said then done. I didn't think I was going to admit it but then I read a blog and decided I should come clean so maybe if anyone reads this they will realize they are not alone with their struggles!
One other thing I would like to mention is an article I read on SP that said if you have alcohol in your system whatever you eat immediately turns to fat! Yuck what a horrible thing to read after I come home from VACA where I had been enjoying Wine and cheese parties!
