Five teachers from my school went to a 4- day workshop on a great writing programfor kids, "Six-Trait". The workshop was held at Cannon Beach, Oregon, and our school paid for everything. For humble little teachers, this was quite a treat (in fact, we sort of never shut up about it - "Can you believe these rooms? Look at the view! There's a pool!!" hahaha)
Anyhow, Cannon Beach is home to Haystack Rock, so beautiful (see below). The beach goes on forever. One of the teachers is a maniac walker and since I've been walking quite a bit myself, I sort of picked up her vibe and did a whole lot of walking myself. A four mile walk along the ocean at sunset is a wonderful thing. And you sleep great, a tiny miracle for some of us.
So, I weighed myself this morning and I've lots five pounds since last time (about 2 weeks ago). ~! ! ! ! ! ! !~
Public Service Announcement: SLEEP GREAT! IMPROVE YOUR MOOD! LOSE WEIGHT! NO MONEY CAN BUY A DRUG AS GOOD AS WALKING!
Here's the rock:
Well, poop, it won't do the thing. I'll put it on my Sparkpage. CHEERS!

    How fantastic is that. A paid vacation on the Oregon coast where you lose weight! Life does not get much better than that.

    Sounds WONDERFUL! I'm so glad you had the opportunity (and it was FREE).

I totally agree with the sleep issue going hand-in-hand with weight loss. It's all about balance, and it's *so* hard to maintain that balance in real life, it seems.
