Camping trip and weigh in
Monday, April 20, 2009
Well, our camping trip was not all that great this weekend. I was really looking forward to it. I wish that I would have had a pedometer for Friday and Saturday. So much walking. Anyhow, the weather played a major role in spoiling the weekend. On Friday night, it started raining around 9 pm. It started out slow and then a major thunderstorm unleashed lots of rain. Well, being in a tent and it raining as hard as it did for all night long, I didn't fall asleep until 6:30 am. Really sucked because I had to be awake again at 7 am. But the shock came as I exited my tent to find that a tree had split a little of 50 ft away from our tents.
I carried on with my duties that morning and decided that I was going to talk my husband into packing up and heading home after the day's activities. I am a die hard camper, but this was not my idea of fun. The mud was horrible. We were on 660 acres and had to walk to different activities in the mud. Really wears you out. Anyhow, we made it back home in time to see the weather report for what was heading in the direction of the camp ground - more severe thunderstorms than that of the Friday night. There were tornado watches up for 2 hours. I am so glad that I had gone home and was safe.
Weigh in on Monday (this morning), 2 lbs down!! Reached my first goal
I was so happy. I will take my measurements in the morning. I didn't have time this morning. I am now believing that this is going to work!!!!
