Saturday July 3, 2010...

Happy Independence Day Weekend!!! Vern and I spent the morning cleaning house and doing laundry. Now that all the chores are done we are ready to begin enjoying the fun stuff!

We are going to the Padre game tonight with my youngest son and his wife. I am looking so forward to it! We are actually sitting in the "all you can eat seats." This should be interesting! Our seats include all we can eat of hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts and soda. I'm feeling pretty confident that I'll be ok. I have tons of activity and weekly points allowance so I can enjoy at hot dog or two (they are 6 points each) and popcorn and as much diet soda as I want. Ourseats also include bottled water, which is awesome! I had a vitatop, half an apple and a latte made with almond milk for breakfast after we finished our housework and I'm banking the rest of my points for later. It's not even that I'm really so crazy about hot dogs...it's more sharing the experience with my family.

Tomorrow we will be having the kids over for the 4th. We'll grill some food and hang out and then watch the fireworks. We have an awesome view of the firewoks from our yard so it's a perfect time for us to all get together. This year, since my youngest and his wife have moved in across the street, we'll be in both places. I got some great "Mango Chicken Sausages" from costco. They are 2 points each and they are absolutely delicious! We'll also grill burgers, hot links, hot dogs, and Boca burgers. But I'll post more of that menu, along with photos afterward!

I had my weigh in on Friday morning. I love, love, love, my Friday morning meeting! I lost 1.4 pounds so now I am down a total of 23.2 pounds. I am so happy with the results I'm having...not just the weightloss...but the lifestyle change!

I'm still trying to get in a five mile walk most days. Vern and I are riding our bikes to work more and more. I walked with my sister last night. We drove down and walked along the bay because it's just so nice there!

So, here are some photos I've taken over the past few days. .....
