It's been awhile

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Wow- I've been MIA for 3 weeks now from Spark and normal life, but I'm back. It felt great to be home doing all my normal stuff today including a workout.
After working 12 out of 14 days, the boys and I took a week off for camping. Nothing like a week in the woods to clear your head and revive your spirit!! We all came home a little browner, with a few more bug bites than before, and grateful for our beds.
I looove our state! There are so many great places that I never get tired of visiting.

Okay, on to the important part, how am I doing? I haven't weighed in a month, and quite honestly don't plan on it until next week. I don't think I'll be up any. I've done well with moderation and getting my water. The hardest part was sticking to my exercise routine. It's too hot to run so I've moved it inside on the gazelle when I'm not mowing, hiking, or swimming. My schedule was so crazy the past few weeks that I just couldn't exercise the 4-5 times a week I've been use to, but I did what I could.

Now, I'm back to my routine! What a difference in me.... I knew those 3 weeks OUT would be hard to stick to my regiment, but I've also learned that it'll be okay. That I can trust myself to do well most days and get back to my routine as soon as possible. Those things were always impossible before.

It's good to be back. I'm looking forward to a summer of special projects and little trips, but I'm also looking ahead to my next half marathon and the training schedule that starts in September.

I hope y'all missed me. I missed you.

    Where did you go camping? DH and I just got back from a MONTH of traveling/camping and I know what you mean about the routine going out the window!

In July we are going to take a couple of weeks to go up around Fayetteville; a part of the state we've not spent much time in. We'll do the Crystal Bridges museum, and walk the trails at Devil's Den State Park. We'll probably stay at Beaver Lake.

I love Arkansas too! Where is your background photo taken at?

    Sure did miss you. Hope you had a great time camping. Where did you go?

I'm not much on camping. Mostly because of living where I live. My idea of a camping trip would involve the ocean and a beach.

Glad you're back,
Hugs, Linda
