Ups and Downs

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

My weight went up in mid-February and I resolved to do better with my fitness and water drinking as well as do better with eating and tracking. Well, my weight was at 226 on weigh-in Tuesday, but down again to 224 today. I hope tomorrow it's still at 224 or less. I haven't done as much fitness today and yesterday as my routines were disrupted with a trip to see my dad and stepmother. It was a nice visit.

I had an interview today. I felt really good about the interview, but you never know. I always put my best foot forward. I did a lot of praying before and after.

Despite everything, our family is going on vacation this summer. We will be going cross country to Seattle, WA. I hope we can drive there and see things in between. I want to see Mt. Rushmore and Yosemite or Yellowstone. Kids are more interested in city life. We will see.

    I hope you get the job that you want. The right thing will come your way. I love road trips. They provide you with many more memories than flying.

    Wishing you luck on your interview. How much fun your vacation sounds. I have been to Yosemite. When I was a kid we camped there often. They even had firefalls off Half Dome back then! LOL Not now I am sure.

I haven't seen the other areas but would love to. It is on my bucket list.

Enjoy yourself.

  A cross country roadtrip would be so much fun! Think about all of the progress you have made (off-scale victories as well) and treat the trip as your reward! Enjoy!

    Good luck on your job search and interviews! I have done the road trip from Portland, OR to Minnesota. Depending on which way you are planning your drive I would say plan on Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone. Yosemite is great but Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone are a natural driving route. You might think about Montana and Glacier National Park which is really cool too. There's my two cents or four cents for the price of two!! LOL
