I am emoticon to say I do not think my June success is going to be that emoticon !
I hope it just doesn't go backwards! As most of you know I do not weigh in and measure myself until the end of the month! The reason being I go emoticon seeing the ups and downs that goes on with my body, so it is a one time a month deal for me! I have not been an emoticon by no means!

My emoticonhas been the problem! I have been eating on the high side of my calorie limit and went over a few times by some! I am trying to tweak it and get it straight! One problem has been not staying home or having any free time alone to do this! I have been on the road constantly, and no time from work to handle this thanks to a two person shortage there!

I have been a emoticon, emoticon, hardy girl all month long I guess! Hopefully things are slowing back down! I hope I will be able to take a look at this more this week! Thought I would show you what I have been up to!

This is daddy getting in the car straw hat and all as we are on the road again
on the way to Myrtle Beach , SC! Thank God only a 2 hour drive!

This picture is of mama with some of the beautiful flowers around
the motel at the beach.

where we stayed!
Now , I have been getting my exercise in okay! I have been doing a lot
of walking and swimming!

This is just one of the many pools at this motel!

Side view of all the many pools we could get in!

This is my "Bubba" (Brandon) relaxing after wrestling with me
in one of the pools! I declared me emoticon the winner!
We also had plenty of places to walk!

Why is it they are always gave out! I just don't understand emoticon!
emoticon here's to a better last half of the month!

    Great pics of your vacation and you can tell that you had a good time...sometimes it's so very hard to get a handle on your eating when you are on vacation because it just seems like the perfect time to indulge a bit...but all the work you have been doing will have been lost unless you find time to exercise a bit more and to watch portion sizes. It is wonderful that you are able to spend quality time with your family! emoticon emoticon

    Wow that trip looks awesome. I love the views and all of the pools. Isn't it just so restful and relaxing to be near the water - something about the air and atmosphere. I just love it. And I know how close you are to your parents - so a family outing is that much more special - making memories.

    So on to your health. You need to focus on how to get your eating under control. Is it a quantity issue of good foods or poor food choices? I try to just avoid poor food choices like burgers and fries or pizza or desserts. It is hard to not have them especially since I have teenage boys who love them and eat them in front of me. But I find that the longer I don't eat them the more I don't miss them. I was at the beach last weekend and we have a favorite pizza place there. My son picked up a pizza and brought it home. I had a slice and it was good - but it tasted greasy and heavy.

    Is there a way to cut out some heavy foods? This could be easier now with the summer and all of the good produce. If the eating is not the choices but the quantity - I find that having lots of water during the day (I know that is hard for you - me too) and protein at every meal really helps with the hunger and overeating. I have hard boiled egg whites almost every morning with whole wheat english muffins. I rarely get hungry until lunch. Maybe you could start out the day with a protein heavy breakfast and see how you feel.

    I always am on the lookout for an April post - glad that you had fun.

    The 'tube river' looks like great fun! Oh, that beautiful beach. I love to beachcomb really early in the morning, before the heat of the day kicks in and when you can find the best shells that have washed up overnight. What a treat, especially since it's only a couple hours away. Glad you posted these, April! :-D

    Wonderful pictures. So happy you were able to have the great adventure. I sure understand about the appetite.

    I'm often hungry emoticon and it really makes it hard to control the calories. But, as you say, there is the rest of the month, plus you've been staying active. Sounds as though you're doing a lot that's RIGHT!

    Your pictures are fantastic. Mountain Girl is so ready for the beach. I love Myrtle Beach. We usually stay at the Dayton House. You are so lucky to be only 2 hours aways.

    Loved the pictures, and your parents. They seem sweet. emoticon

    Looks like a great trip!! Great that you were able to get so much walking, swimming and family time in. None of those will you ever regret!!

    I am sure your weigh in at the end of the month will be just fine. You need to remember how hard you have worked and swimming burns up a whole lotta calories!! I will be ready to happy dance with you when you do weigh in!!

    Have a great weekend!

    Looks like you had a great time at the beach! That's wonderful! emoticon

    I get the impression that you and your parents are very close. This isn't the first time you've posted photos of a trip you took with them. What a blessing it is for them to have you as a daughter!

    You sound like a very busy person! It's very hard to control what we eat when we're on the road so much. You face special challenges and will need creative ways to meet them. Great about the exercise you got in! emoticon
