But I have done it, and even got right back to starting my day with a brief walk to get the body moving and heart going. So here we go, back to "normalcy"! <BR> <BR> Enjoy the day everyone.

So it is nice to be back home. Back to my own bed and to my Bonnie cat. Of course it means going back to work, but that is fine too. I like my job. <BR> <BR> So home it is and home it shall be for now. :) <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful day! Wed, 7 Oct 2015 12:52:34 EST Returning home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6010368 All good things must end . . so it is said. And today my trip to Disneyland is over. I do look forward to getting home to see my Bonnie cat . . and sleep in my own bed. And it will be interesting to see what it has done to my weight. I don't think I ate much (Don't we all on vacation?) and I definitely did a lot of walking. So fingers are crossed that I have lost weigh and not gained. :) <BR> <BR> Have a nice day everyone! Tue, 6 Oct 2015 11:12:29 EST One More Day . . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6009668 left to enjoy the parks. Disney was crowded all weekend, but today should be a bit nicer. (I hope)! Mon, 5 Oct 2015 10:49:43 EST Tired but happy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6008530 My legs are a bit sore. But I am enjoying all the walking and getting to meet and make friends with new folks. It is such a magical place to be. Disneyland is great! Sat, 3 Oct 2015 11:05:53 EST Not caring about a thing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6007982 With all the walking and stuff . . I am going to get plenty of exercise the next few days, while enjoying the parks. :) Fri, 2 Oct 2015 10:56:38 EST Today is the Day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6007272 I'm going to Disneyland! Woot Woot! <BR> <BR> Looking forward to a nice relaxing vacation. A chance to unwind . . get lots of walking in . . maybe makes some new friends. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Thu, 1 Oct 2015 08:54:51 EST Getting ready day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6006693 I have been procrastinating to much in getting ready for vacation. Now I really need to get things ready. Tomorrow is the day I got to Disneyland. So gotta figure out clothes and all that stuff and make arrangements for transportation. This is so unlike me as I normally take care of all this stuff a week or two in advance. But I am trying to learn to be a little more spontaneous. So though it is a bit stressful . . it is kind of fun. <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful day everyone! Wed, 30 Sep 2015 09:39:35 EST One more . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6006068 day in the office this week. <BR> <em>30</em> <BR> My mind has already checked out, even though I don't fly out until Thursday. And still a lot of things to take care of before then. Pre-vacation stuff is really quite a workout! LOL <BR> <BR> Enjoy your day! Tue, 29 Sep 2015 09:26:44 EST Hard to work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6005431 Hard to keep my mind on exercise and diet. All the silly things that go along with being so close to vacation you can almost taste it. LOL <BR> But I guess it is ok because all the running around, getting things ready, is showing to be more of a work out than my normal routines. :) <BR> <BR> So I shall enjoy the benefits. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Mon, 28 Sep 2015 09:25:29 EST All is good. (?) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6004837 So the car isn't as bad as I was worrying. It is more of a sensor issue than an actual problem <BR> }}WHEW!!{{ <BR> So though it will be semi-costly to fix, the car can still function fine. <BR> <BR> So now I can get back to stressing over getting ready for the trip to Disneyland. :) Sun, 27 Sep 2015 09:18:39 EST Always something . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6004347 }}sigh{{ <BR> <BR> Of course I am getting ready for a nice big vacation . . and now my car has developed an issue. Not a cheap one either. Oh well . . I will do what I can now . . and deal with the rest once I get home. No need to get worked up during a vacation.! <BR> <BR> :) <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone. Sat, 26 Sep 2015 09:51:06 EST Much better! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6003819 Made it through the day yesterday. :) Got some sleep finally and feel so much better.

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 10:09:38 EST I must need a vacation! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6003207 I am feeling more and more worn out every morning. My weekend is coming up real soon and maybe then I can get some rest. But it is going to be a busy weekend too. So maybe next week when I get my actual vacation . . I can rest some. <BR> <BR> Anyways . . . <BR> <BR> Have a peaceful day everyone! Thu, 24 Sep 2015 09:26:10 EST Might be a long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6002592 Was a difficult night for sleeping. Not sure why. But at this point it is not relevant. So it is difficult to stay as motivated as when fully charged. But I will do my best and hope that I don't fall asleep at the office! :) <BR> <BR> Enjoy the day everyone! Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:29:55 EST Looking better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6001957 This week got off to a bit of a difficult and rough start . . but (knock on wood) seem to be on the improve.

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 09:25:00 EST Blah blah http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6001313 Another day . . another day. :) <BR> <BR> It's a new week . . so lets go get it!! Mon, 21 Sep 2015 09:25:20 EST Still no news. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6000212 Just moving along trying to keep healthy and lose the weight. I am still bouncing around 330#. It is annoying, but I will break it somehow!! Sat, 19 Sep 2015 11:02:04 EST Back . . again . . :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5997759 The reset was a nice break and I am glad I did not gain any weight during it. But it is back to life and back to reality. :) <BR> <BR> Tue, 15 Sep 2015 08:26:07 EST Nearly back . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5994654 I decided to not be frustrated by motivation issues . . . and decided to call it a "reset". :) <BR> <BR> The last few days I gave myself permission to not think about weight loss, diet, exercise, etc. Just stop and enjoy the days. It seems to have worked. I am recharged and ready to start again. And as a bonus . . I actually lost a few pounds. LOL <BR> <BR> I guess I was over thinking things, and my mind was letting me know to just "let it go". <BR> <BR> :) Thu, 10 Sep 2015 08:43:47 EST Gotta get there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5993272 Motivation is fluctuating. But I am trying to push through. I can do it! Tue, 8 Sep 2015 08:55:50 EST So . . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5992553 feeling a bit stiff and sore from the weekend. But it is that nice feeling that you got some work done. The pain of accomplishment. :) <BR> <BR> But it does make it a bit difficult to get moving this morning. The cup of coffee is making it easier to shift into the day. :) <BR> <BR> Have a nice Labor Day everyone! (I will be at work). Mon, 7 Sep 2015 08:57:51 EST Whew!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5991916 What a busy weekend. But it was nice. <BR> <BR> The weather is cooling so I was able to get out and get some yard work done. Weeding is quite a chore, but it kept me busy and my mind off grazing. And of course, it's semi-strenuous work as well. Quite a calorie burner! <BR> <BR> Well now its back to the work week . . <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> Sun, 6 Sep 2015 08:44:36 EST Whew!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5991915 What a busy weekend.

But I like that. It means I will be to busy doing stuff to start grazing on food. :) The bane of the work week! LOL And as a bonus some of this is actually some good physical labor . . so exercise added boost! :) <BR> <BR> Well . . have a great day everyone! Fri, 4 Sep 2015 11:55:22 EST Happy but hesitant . . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5990082 I had a weigh in that for the first time was below 330. It was 329. Now to see if it will continue downward. I am hoping for that. I have been trying to get past that barrier FOREVER!!! So for now I am happy . . but waiting to see. Thu, 3 Sep 2015 07:25:03 EST OK http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5989424 It's weigh day again. I am confident and ready! <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Wed, 2 Sep 2015 08:37:47 EST Weekend was to short http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5987265 But it was somewhat relaxing. <BR> <BR> And a bit of bad news as a friend who usually travels with me to Disneyland, had to cancel out of the annual trip. Economic reasons . . so I understand. But now it is a solo trip. :( Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:49:34 EST Again nothing new. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5986821 But it is a busy day, so who knows! LOL Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:25:50 EST Welp . . . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5986319 Nothing new to really report. And as they say . . . no news is good news. Actually I don't know what that means. It is neither good or bad . . it's no news! LOL <BR> <BR> So that is all. <BR> <BR> END TRANS . . . Fri, 28 Aug 2015 11:48:21 EST The struggle continues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5985635 I am now sitting at 330#. I am hoping that I can break this barrier now. I don't know why it is so difficult to cross that barrier. But I WILL!!! Because gosh darnit . . I can!! <BR> <BR> <em>521</em> Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:58:57 EST Still trying http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5984374 It's like my body is conspiring to prevent me from breaking the 330 mark without going to extreme measures. I don't want to do that, but if I don't break it this week, I may consider a 24~48 hour fast. Tue, 25 Aug 2015 08:49:45 EST Not much http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5982607 news to report. Still trying to break the 330# mark. <BR> <BR> It's a terrible barrier that vexes me! LOL <BR> <BR> I will find a way to break through it!! Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:25:24 EST
