Grateful - 500 Days

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

The theme for the next section of my 500 Days program is "Grateful." I want to increase my awareness of the awesome Creator's wisdom, love, and power. I receive such grace daily!

Now I will be involved sporadically with SparkPeople for several months because Fall is a major camping season for us. September will be a month-long cross-country adventure, followed by many short camping trips. Thus I am changing my plan of approach in the weight-loss journey. I am still committed to great nutrition, tracking, and exercise.

Now I am starting a program with my husband. When we are both tracking, I think it will be helpful. I am not giving up; but I am shifting gears. Thanks to you all for your faithful friendship! I will check in now and then!

    Good thoughtful blog. Changing gears is often called for in life for many reasons and good for you for knowing that!

I hope you have nothing but fun and good times with your camping!

Take care!

    Selfishly I said "Oh NO!" as I will miss your presence.

Camping is a wonderful way to get in touch with ourselves and nature. It is wonderful that you and your husband have partnered on your healthy lifestyle plan. The cross-country adventure sounds heavenly, I hope your trip brings you to New England. I look forward to your check-ins.

    Yes, Travelgrrl, we use state parks and national parks! Only a couple times have we hit an area where nothing is available except a private campground...

    I hope you will check in periodically and let us know about your adventures and travels! I always feel gratitude when camping...we always try to camp at State and Federal parks, which are always showcases of an areas most beautiful locales. What about you? Do you prefer the campgrounds with all the creature comforts or the ones out in the woods?

Have fun and take care!!
