I had a great weekend. Since Monday was Memorial Day, both my brother and I had the day off. And my mother and younger brother even decided to take the day off, a rarity during the growing season. So the four of us went geocaching.

We found three caches, and couldn't find two others. We spent most of the day driving around and walking to the caches, and saw some parts of the countryside we'd never seen before. I'd already gone for a walk that morning, so the geocaching was a nice complement to that workout.

We took a nice long lunch break by the reservoir, just relaxing and enjoying the cool breeze off the water. We'd already planned plenty of healthy, filling foods, like pasta salad with whole wheat pasta, beans and vegetables, and a black bean and corn salad. We had cherries and strawberries, sugar snap peas and baby bell peppers. I had pre-measured and pre-packaged my food, so I knew exactly how much I could and should eat.

And the best part was that I was able to keep up with the thinner members of my family much more easily than I used to be able to. I actually fit into a pair of jeans I used to wear, and they felt great. It felt even better to get out there and move.

    It sounds like you had a wonderful family day. I love that you portioned everything. That was my most difficut lesson to lear - portions.
