Wow so I really need to catch up.
Day 24 - I'm happy about rainbows. I love it when it rains outside and then the sun peaks out from the clouds. A beautfiful rainbow slides across the sky and a smile forms on my face. To me it represents promises and fullfillment. It means hope and wonder.
Day 25 - I'm happy about air mattresses. Okay so I have to admit I'm getting older. I used to be able to camp in a sleeping bag on the ground. Today, once I got in it I might not get back out of it. No seriously my back goes out and I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame. So I'm am so happy that I can blow up that mattress and lay in old lady comfort.
Day 26 - I'm happy for campfires. I love the smell and the coziness of it. You can sit around telling stories of family fun or whatever. And yes I love roasted marshmellows which I refrained from eating more than one or two on the trip.
Day 27 - I'm happy for sunsets over the water. Oh my they are breathtaking. We camped by a lake with blue green water. The sun rested over it at dusk and make so many colors across it and the sky. It just took my breath away.
Day 28 - I am so excited and happy about starry skies. I would sit out at our campsite and look out at the moon and stars. It felt so peaceful and relaxing. The crickets chirped and I loved every minute of it.
Day 29 - I was so happy to have family come and visit I haven't seen in 10 years. It was nice to catch up and laugh at ourselves when we were young. I loved remembering my grandparents which passed over 10 years ago. Nothing like sharing memories to warm my heart.
Day 30 - I was so happy to be at home. Nothing like my own bed and familiar surroundings to take out the kinks. I felt kind of chaotic on my trip. Things kind of didn't go as I had planned. It rained for almost 2 days so we couldn't cook like we planned. Camping area was rural so the places to get food was limited and not the best for weight loss. I also had a few "accidents" on the trip because I am completely a clumsy person. So I was glad to be there but also glad to be home where I could have a few better options/choices.
Day 31 - I'm happy that life is fluid and flexible. I didn't do as well on vacation as I wanted. I am working on not beating myself up when I don't live up to my or others expectations. I just have to keep pushing which is becoming a favorite mantra. Hey I didn't gain w eight besides the water weight from TOM. I am feeling blah physically but I think that is from one of my little accidents.
Anyway, to summarize here I am and I'm not a quitter. I am going to rock July.
