Saturday July 31, 2010...

Wow! I'm finding that it's becoming more and more difficult to find time to keep my blog updated! Now that Summer is here we are busy living life on the weekends. And, ever since we bought the business in January I have worked harder than I ever did as an employee!

So anyway, it's been two weeks since I was here last. Here's some of what I've been doing...

Picnics & bike rides with the most adorable granddaughter in the world! (and her Daddy!)







Eating loads of healthy foods...















And continuing to lose weight.....
Last week I was down .2 pounds...yes, point two. This week I was down 2 pounds. I am 1.4 pounds away from 30 pounds being gone! Wow! Just Wow! I am eating almost whatever I want and my body is continuing to shrink. I am so excited!
(My actual starting weight was 226 pounds, but I didn't take a week one photo...I know, what was I thinking!?)



So...here's the challenge for me for THIS week. We are leaving this morning for a mini vacation. We will be spending the next four days at Disneyland and California Adventure. I am within 1.4 pounds of being 30 pounds down. I think it would be the coolest thing in the world to lose that 1.4 pounds and hit my 30 pound mark on the same week as the Disneyland trip. That will be my motivation to make it a vacation for my mind and my spirit...but not a vacation from my healthy lifestyle. I will not be heartbroken if it doesn't happen...but it really would be so cool! I can just see myself telling the folks in my meeting about it!

OK...and we're off to the Happiest Place on Earth!

And I swear my stomach started to growl when I was looking at those pictures. LOL

Summer is a busy time and it's hard to keep up with blogs. It's good to hear from you though.

Hope you have a wonderful time on your vacation. Sounds like a blast!
