Days #347~353: Oscar events & traveling notes! Photos from phone!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I'm working VERY hard to get the 8 hours I need every night. It seems to be the only way I can do all the fun activities I want to do! Looks like I'll be going home on Monday March 4.

Today is hiking Hollywood hills & Shopping in Beverly Hills, dinner with N & A, CPK= salad & chicken is in my future! Tomorrow I get to drive south a bit & visit with my sweetest of all Great Niece, Hayley, she just turned 2 years! I am her official FAIRY GOD MOTHER! Thursday I'll visit my "middle" parents. & take them to lunch for their B'Days. I haven't seen them for quite awhile.

The Oscar events were wonderful! We met many lovely people & I felt GREAT being trimmer & healthier! I did eat a sweet treat, there, but not too much! Watching the directors & nominees talk about their movies, was REALLY fun! We had tickets for 3 different 'workshops', Foreign Films~Animation~Make Up & Hair Styling. We were 3rd row from front! WOW! I am SO blessed! A fabulous reception afterwards. Displays of the make up film that were nominated. A life sized Hitchcock, we had a chance to take photos with. WAY FUN!!!!

During the day, Sunday, N & I walked all over the Huntington Library grounds. Flowers blooming EVERYWHERE! Lot's of photos AND walking! Lunched on Salad cob style. No dressing. I am doing VERY well while traveling! Eating SO much more RAW fruits & VEGGIES. It is helping allot! We came 'home' & made ginger chicken & watched the Oscars on TV. Also, 1 of my FAIRY GOD DAUGHTERS is getting married in Oct. She tried on her dress for me. STUNNING!

My life is so full & blessed & I am VERY grateful for it & the energy to enjoy it! My Sweetheart misses me & I miss him, BUT it is good for us to be doing separate things, now & again!

My Spark 'family' is VERY important to me, too! It helps me SO much knowing you are "out there" going through some of the same things I am! Trying to maintain, still not sure where my body wants to 'land' weight wise. It is still a learning process for me! 30 days of being generally the same will be my guide! All I know is I feel great!

Not much internet connection, here, for some reason, but enough to spark to you today! I love you all & look forward to catching up with you, SOON!

Sparkles,

    Wow...what a FUN, FUN trip! I'd love to be right there with you! But hey...wait...I am! emoticon You are doing soooo amazing on your spark journey and I'm just bustin' me buttons PROUD of all that you have achieved!

All of that walking really adds up...I LOVE my fitbit..it really spurs me on! I try REALLY hard for my 10,000 steps per day and my 6-8 flights of steps. It isn't difficult at all with that long staircase at work! emoticon emoticon

Keep on keepin on...you are doing GREAT! emoticon

    Looks like SO much fun! I'm so envious of your hike in the Hollywood hills - AND your CPK salad! I miss my nearly-daily salad lunchtime there! Made for easy weight maintenance!

Keep up that GREAT work!!
