Sliding away, but still have a strong enough hand hold to get back

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Wow - I have been away from the site for a while now - several weeks. Not too bad, but I know it is affecting my healthy living! I have done fairly well keeping my eating in basic check, but a few bad habits have slowly infiltrated my life: too many tortilla chips, eating while preparing food, an extra glass of wine and the WOST OF ALL - reduced exercise. Wow is it easy to be lazy on the exercise thing! I had been walking and doing ab, arm and leg videos....hm? Fran? what happened? Rain, rain, rain and then heat, heat, heat. Sounds like a lot of excuses to me.

I'm back - have a mini goal in mind and have had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I went on the family Boy Scout canoe trip! Yep, 3 days and 2 nights in the true wilderness. Numerous rapids, got wet and had a rattle snake in our camp site - But - I did it, got out of my comfort zone and loved the experience. It was beautiful. I was in a canoe with my husband and we did just fine (he is an expert; I a rookie). I'll go again, but not with scouts. It would have been so much nicer to have a light beer at the end of the day!!!

Hope to keep blogging .....

    You my friend are a brave woman. I have never camped with the scouts, but am thinking about going to next years Military Through the Ages camping trip with them. That has always been one of the favorites of my husband and boys. emoticon

    Happy Friday!

    Never too late to start again! Baby steps work best for me. "Just 10 minutes" to start and you'll be back to healthy living in no time!!!
