Lots to do today so just a quick post here this morning. My week of vacation is flying by and I haven't accomplished anywhere near what I wanted to get done this week. Gotta get my tail in gear!!
Hubby and I went up to Niagara Falls, Canada yesterday on a day trip to celebrate our 18th anniversary (which is this coming Sunday Oct 16th). It was rainy & cool & we cut our trip short (only spent 4.5 hrs there) because it really started raining. We played a bit at the casinos & donated about $80. arrgh! I really don't enjoy gambling because I cant get over the thought that I could use the money toward groceries or something like that but oh well, it was fun playing video blackjack & we know when to say when & leave. WE got home about 4:30, picked up the girls & took them to Olive Garden for dinner. My oldest had a really hard time with the menu as she is super picky. My youngest was in her glory with all the menu choices. They are like day & night in so many ways. Anyways, I had soup & salad & it was delish! I had the zuppa tuscono (1 cup) and they brought me the lower calorie salad dressing on my salad & 1 1/2 breadsticks(I love to dip it in my soup!) . I couldn't finish it all and I stayed within my points allowance for the day which was great. The scale is looking good this week so fingers crossed, it will keep on going down. I have been exercising daily (except for yest but we walked alot) & I think that really does make a difference. I want to go to jazzercise but I am a bit intimidated by it all & Im afraid I wont be coordinated enough to do the moves. I never took a dance class before in my life & it looks very "dancy" to me. I will wait for my sister to go with me to the trail class. Until then, looks like its gonna be walking & my exercise tapes for the rest of the week.
Here are a few pics from our trip to the Falls.
I have noticed my face & upper body are really getting alot thinner. Have a great rest of the week &" keep on keepin on" girls! We are getting there!
P.s on a side note~ I want to order some of the Natures Hollow sugar free jams but not sure what flavors are the best. If you use them, would you please chime in & tell me what flavors are your favorite?? Thanks! We cant buy them in the stores up here in PA so I have to order them online. I trust all of my "buds" taste buds! :)
