Things I Noticed

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Left yesterday in our RV and our first stop is the Grand Canyon.

I noticed since our last trip in November how much bigger and comfortable the seat was that held me and Lucy my spoiled Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Could it be because I have lost over 50 lbs… yeaaaa!

After leaving AZ 94 and arriving in Grand Canyon windy 50ish I was not very prepared.

I noticed I was able to put my exercise pants on and my new size 10 jeans over them. A long sleeve shirt, a jacket and another jacket. I remember never being able to barely even fit into my clothes let alone layer them without feeling like a stuffed sack of potatoes. I also had trouser sock and my sock and tennis shoes. This really felt good!

Being in an RV and the weather so cold I could not get myself to go out and exercise. I know you people from Buffalo and all are saying WAAAAA but I am soooo not used to it. I ate everything I was supposed to. Did not eat out! And was I ever shocked that I lost 1 pound from yesterday. I don’t understand this because the other day I exercised and ate less than I did yesterday and gained 1 pound. I don’t care, I’ll take it. I just hope I don’t gain it back tomorrow because that happens regularly to me.

Wow, just got back from seeing the magnificent canyon!

I noticed that in the past 3 years of RVing we have traveled through 32 states and I was in more pictures today than all past travels combined. I hated being in pictures so I would avoid it at all cost. Today I loved being in every picture. emoticon

I noticed I wasted so many years of not being in pictures because of my weight. How sad.

    You looked great, even with all the layers! Size 10 pants OVER exercise pants? I am impressed! And I know what Lucy looks like now! She's adorable.

    That is great - one of the reasons I am finally seriously working on changing my life is because I am never in any pictures. I want to change that!
    Hope your trip was wonderful!!!
