Las Vegas - Healthy Lifestyle Choices

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

My daughter had spinal surgery on her second vertabrae. It's a procedure that was done from the front of her neck, through her throat. We are taking care of her and her household while she heals.

We are in the suburbs and it's like the burbs any where. We bought some groceries so we can continue to eat like we do at home. The temperature is in the mid-80's. Last night hubby and I were out walking after sunset when it was cooling off. There is a casino for the locals that is 2.5 kilometers away, so a nice 5K round trip walk. Also a YMCA a few miles from here, so I may get some gym passes.

I brought my scale along and will weigh in when I have been here a couple of days. I get water retention when I drive for long distances.

A reminder about the next 5% Challenge which will start sometime in May, time to join.

    Good for you for finding ways to adapt!! It has been hot and windy here as well, which is unusual for Northern California this time of year.
Looking forward to the next challenge, but I am looking forward to the break to have time to figure out what changes I need to make.

    You should be so proud. Parenting is the most important job anyone can have and it sounds like you are a good one! Sounds like you have a great plan too! Congrats! If you haven't seen it yet you gotta see Cirque de Soleil's show "Love" It is awesome! And worth every penny it costs to get a ticket.

    I hope your daughter has a speedy recovery. She's lucky to have you there to take care of her and the household.

Sounds like you have some great options there to keep you on track! A casino within walking distance makes for a great reason to get out there and get some steps and have some fun!
