New streak!!! I'm back!
Monday, August 18, 2014
Was off for a family vacation last week. We ventured to Canada to Toronto and to the Niagara Falls area. I must say, "There's no place like home". We had a great trip, but it was so good to return home and sleep in my own bed and get back to my quiet little life!
So here's the gang (minus me taking the pic) waiting for the ferry on the Toronto Islands.
and here is one of me and my son Jack
Lot's of memories made!
Bad part - I did not have internet access most of my time away - so disconnected from Spark and my 5% summer challenge team. My spark login streak ended, but another begins today! Other bad part - I was pretty much on everyone else's schedule, which was sleeping in, eating meals off schedule, eating fast food much of the time because there were no other options left in the small town in which we were staying at the time of night we found ourselves eating dinner!
Even worse part. As of today, I found the scale reading 185.6 which is up 6 lbs from where I was on Friday when I left. Hopefully it won't continue it's upward climb over the next couple days and will return back to closer to where I started!
I must admit, I am looking forward to getting back to my schedule of walking and healthy eating! Unfortunately, it isn't going to happen today as far as the walking goes - I have so much laundry to catch up on and bills to pay, mail to read - that I will be spending my evening playing catch up. But tomorrow morning it will be up early and on the treadmill!
Feeling fortunate and blessed to have had a wonderful week away with my family! Grateful for a safe trip, love and laughter, giggling girls, the beauty of the world around us and the opportunities to explore!
So here we go! Day one of another streak!
