A Wonderful visit without neglecting my fitness

Saturday, October 15, 2011

To say that I had a great time at my 40th reunion would be an understatement. There was about 120 or so (out of over 700 grads!) that attended. Not only was it nice to see friends I hung out with, but there were several that were----how do I say this----NOT friends at the time that not only welcomed me but apologized, giving me the peace and closure that I secretly longed for.
During that weekend, my husband and I hiked for a total of about 10 miles (about 5 miles a day) at several parks and we could not have asked for better weather---sunny, 70's.

Here I am at the reunion---I don't think I stopped smiling the whole evening LOL!

Needless to say, I have always enjoyed walking around and spending time at this park. It has a hilly hiking trail which really gives you a good workout while enjoying the scenery.

The next day, I went out for dinner with my family; from left to right is my son Andrew, my dad, my stepmom, yours truly, and my husband.
I gained 2 pounds when I weighed myself at work, but quickly lost it. I believe all that walking kept me from gaining more----and I have my husband and sparkpeople to thank! By the way, I need to get new shirts----as you can see, the black one I wore at the park was very loose since I lost the pounds LOL.
