The bakeries were calling my name all over town today !!!  All I could do is laugh and say no way !!!  I had to be out and about for part of the day and it was very much apparent my subconscious hadn’t forgot all my old haunts…I have to say it was never even a worry though…so happy to be back in the grove…my calorie count is under 1000 and my food was all natural and extremely healthy….yay….no stress today…just getting it together for our little road trip….I am not sure if It was something I did or the sugar I ate yesterday but my knee had been screaming all day, even on medication and cream…so no pool or gym to day….I am going to try in the morning…it will depend on how loud my knee is screaming…

So all’s good and back on track here at my house….

Until tomorrow…..

I did it…..I commited

swim    I have done it….I joined a gym today,            it is 8 miles from our home….my husband and I went this morning and had a tour and checked it all out, signed up and I was back there in the pool by 1pm….swam for about 45 minutes and then uses the sauna and steam room…felt great….there is a 8am water aerobics class, I will be there…Its a smaller gym, nothing like 24 hour fitness….but it will work for me…when I get back I will find a good trainer and get some help setting up a routine on the machines….very excited I am upping my exercise, last night I was trying something different, I was doing some core exercises and my old arthritic knee was against it from the beginning…I think that the pool and the heat of the steam room and sauna has helped…its not screaming at me anymore…YAY…so I am excited!!!!

Other good news….I lost another 2#’s, making that 42# all together, so little by little the weight is coming off…so that made me feel good today…I am under 1000 Cal tonight, 872 to be exact….I have had more than enough food and I am way over on my fluid intake…so its all good…..

salad   Can’t seem to stop eating peaches,          today it was another cucumber, beet, radish and peach salad with reduced balsamic vinegar…yummy

getting excited about our up coming journey…ready for a road trip…

Sooooo Until tomorrow…

On the road again….

Just wanted to check in and say I am feeling excited about my road trip north to see my sister and her husband…I am not worried about my eating…I have mental plans lined up for myself..So  I may or may not get back to my blog this week…it will depend on time, internet and internet access…my sister lives on a hill and he internet is iffy at best….thanks everyone for your support….until then
