ONE.... MORE.... DAY!!! Vacay & Rockin' My Challenges!!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

So, TOMORROW is our appointment with US Immigration!!!

We are all enjoying the visit with my cousin and her family. It's been keeping my mind off all the anticipation of the up-coming interview. emoticon My cousin & I relate to each other so well, it's so amazingly refreshing to spend time with her. Our kids all play really well with each other, and it's..... well..... just wonderful to be with family!!

In spite of being on "vacation", I am ROCKING my challenges to myself!!

NO SUGAR AT ALL!! I made sure I told her what I was doing before I came, to sort of prep her, and also to keep me accountable. She is sort of a health nut too, so she has been really supportive. She has also made lots of healthy stuff to eat, which of course, helps greatly! I also haven't eaten ANY baked goods!! I am already *feeling* slimmer.

I also didn't want to be totally lazy over this weekend. I did my *long run* of a 10K Friday before we left, so I wouldn't have to worry about doing a long run in unfamiliar territory. Yesterday, I headed out to explore around the little town of Jettenbach, near Kaiserslautern. My cousin's husband directed me toward a nature trail just outside the town, so I headed for that. Shall we say..... "HILLS???" Seriously, the terrain here is MUCH different than where I live! It was fun and challenging! I didn't push hard, because it was supposed to be an easy run, but it was still challenging because of the hills. It was great!!

It feels SOOOO great to be successful so far this weekend!! Doing well gives me even MORE motivation to stay on track!!

So, Are you sticking to your goals? Are you challenging yourself to take steps to get to the next level of your fitness??

Spark on, Sparkers!!
