Self-Discovery and Some Summer Fun!

It's been busy!
My youngest daughter graduated earlier this month from 8th grade. I can't believe I have 2 high school kids on my hands! Yikes!
For her gift, she wanted to go to San Diego. (which was absolutely fine with us!) LOVE San Diego! Lots to do and I'm a beach girl by heart!
We were really active there which is what I wanted. We were so busy that I found myself eating only 3 square meals a day with absolutely no snacking in-between. We had no time for it and didn't miss it at all!
We found ourselves doing things like hiking, lots of walking on the boardwalk, boogie boarding, and kayaking for the first time. I was scared out of my mind because of my weight and the fact that it was in the ocean.
It was awesome!
I really discovered what I was missing all this time. I was holding back on all the things I want to do. Even at my weight, I still went kayaking, hiking, and boogie boarding. I am sure that it did not look all that pretty, but I had a great time....and for the first time....I didn't care what others thought I looked like. I cared if I was having a good time with my family. I LOVED being active. I loved that I was having a good time with the people around me and laughing with them. It has boosted my confidence....and I am worth it!
Now that we are back, all i want to do is stay active and try new things. i don't want my family to get stuck in that lazy rut. I want to live life and I want my daughters to do the same.
My daughters want to live in San Diego...I told them to study hard and get a well-paid job because living out there is expensive, but if you love it....then it's worth it!
(My oldest daughter who is an organic, pescatarian junkie blended in really well there.)
3 days wasn't nearly enough time to spend out there. Looking forward to going out there again!
