Today is Independance Day here in America. It is a day that is celebrated with BBQ's, potlucks, and fireworks. Fortunately for me, I've got a new attitude and celebrated the day with family and good friends in a healthy way. I volunteered for 3 parties and brought fruit and veggie trays to each. Not bad, if I do say so myself.
In the midst of a heat wave (105 heat index in the shade), I opted to spend most of my time indoors. However, I did not spend my time hovered around snack bars and buffet tablets, yet played Wii with my nieces and nephews, took pictures of friends and family. While I was outside, I jumped on the trampoline. Whew! I forgot what a workout that thing is, especially when you're 5 feet tall and trying to get up there without a step stool (added to list - work on upper body strength). LOL!
Fun was had by all, yet I remembered to track my food. Thank goodness for smart phones, I was able to use the notepad to keep a good journal of my day, so I wouldn't forget anything. Not even the "smidge of this, smidge of that."
Happy 4th of July to my American friends, and Happy Day to my Spark Friends from further away!
