Yesterday, my husband and I had a fantastic day trip and I know that I ate way off track. Everything started out pretty good, but as the day went on I just enjoyed the food along with all the beautiful sights on the country roads in west Texas. I got a salad with a cup of fruit at chick fil la. I love to eat fruit on the salad. Anyway, I put honey mustard on it, thinking that would be low in calories. Ugh! The honey mustard was 100 calories! Oh well, I will just count it. And be done with it.
Next I decided to eat a bite of my husband's order of waffle fries. Yikes! That triggered a eating spree of eating them until they were gone. Glad my husband was too busy getting out of Dodge and didn't notice.
On to the Billy the Kid museum in Hico, TX we go! We loved the little town and the great people. It is a small town and we recently saw it reviewed on Bob Phillips Country Reporter. We are getting ideas for our mini trips from him and also the Day Tripper show.
We decided to eat at the Mexican restaurant a couple of doors down from the museum. Oh my goodness, I enjoyed the veggie quesadillas, guacamole, salsa , and chips! The chips always get me started on a happy dance to eating.
Anyway, turn out the lights. The party is over. It back to counting and tracking my food today.
Yesterday sure was fun though.
Well, Hico is not really west Texas but it is west of Fort Worth, so that seems west to me.
And oops, we went to a wonderful chocolate factory in Hico and I sampled the tasty chocolates.
Enjoy your day. I will too!

Ok for me to lose a half pound or even a whole pound it seems that it takes forever to show on the scale. Forever meaning at least a week before the scale goes down. It is like a sledge hammer working diligently hammering away and then finally, bingo! It is gone. I am thrilled for the loss. But then my dear husband decides he needs to lose some weight and in 3 days, he loses 11 pounds. I am so happy for him and I tell him that is wonderful. Keep up the good work! But deep inside me, I feel a little frustration and maybe I am envious of his achievement. Then I feel guilty of not being able to do as well as he does.
It is what it is, but still I would like to some day magically look on the scale and say, I lost ten pounds! Yes, I know there is no magic in losing weight and that his loss is probably a lot of water loss and may not stay gone for very long. Still I am a little jealous of not being able to say, I just lost ten pounds this week.
Now that I vented, I feel somewhat better. Off to the toolbox to get the sledge hammer.

Well, I am not one to say much about myself, but I am very excited to see the scale move down. Since I have been tracking the past ten days or so, I have lost 3.6 pounds. I know that I have to track every bite of food and stay within my healthy eating range. Doing that every day will help me make my healthy weight goal.
I really am beside myself in happiness this morning. I am sipping my coffee and letting the gladness sink in. Guess I can go to the grocery store and pick up a bag of flour and say to myself, that is the amount of weight that went good bye. Way to go and here I go to lose more weight until I meet my goal. Then I am going to get me a pretty little black dress and keep on smiling. Cheryl

Years ago I took Jazzercise classes and had great fun working out. I would take my grand daughters with me to the classes and they would stay in the children's playroom and play and have a good time. Meanwhile I was working out in the Jazzercise class. It was a great way to workout, enjoy the experience, and of course sweat!
Now my grand daughters have all grown up and the classes are no longer at that convenient location. I have fond memories of the classes though and have had hopes of finding some dvds that would work for me at home.
Bingo! Last night I searched on Amazon.com again and found 3 divds (core, cardio, and abs) I ordered all three Jazzercise dvds and I get free shipping. Now that is a deal! I also noticed that they had some Latin dance Jazzercise dvds. I have had a desire to learn some Zumba, but have only tried the Zumba on Youtube. I quickly found out that my body just does not move like that. It is the same way with me speaking Spanish, my lips just don't work like that. Maybe if I actually took a beginner Zumba class, I would do better.
Another thing, I must share. I remember step classes in Jazzercise too. My husband made me a step and it has been in the attic for years. I miss working out with the step, so I looked to see if I could find Jazzercise step dvds, but I did not have any luck. A couple of weeks ago, I did find step aerobics by Debra Mazda and another by Tonya Larson. Maybe they will arrive today and I will get up in that cold attic and bring my stip down out of the moth balls.
Time to get my workout dvd on and get these feet moving! Have a great day!
