Talk About Some Up's and Downs!

So not sure how posting gets away from me.. but it does and I'm sorry... I keep thinking about blogging... "oh I should post about this...or that".

Well the first thing was that on July 1st (Canada Day, yah Canada) I weighed in at 224.6lbs!! That was 40.2 down (yes you may recall I posted this accomplishment a few weeks ago, but the weight did not stay off). So I was super pumped. The good think also was that I felt 224.6lbs meaning I finally felt a tiny bit slimmer than I had in a while...so that was all good and fine till my BBQ that night. Now I didn't go hog wild, but I defiantly wasn't couting points. I knew I'd be up but 5bls come ON!! and day 2 of 229 is not making me happy. It seems like I touch in the #'s i'd like to be, then back up to these stink'n high 220's. It's PISSING ME OFF!!!

I missed 2 days at the gym (1st and 2nd) and got back on the wagon today, though it was a struggle and I could not run the 3miles that I had been doing, but all the same I went to the gym and I left sweaty, yah me.

So my Mom said (after I asked) that she would watch the kiddo's in Oct. for hubby and I to go on a CRUISE!!! I have been needing a vacation for awhile; I loooove traveling and haven't been away since Jan 07. (I know it's not that long ago). So we are looking at a 4 day Bahamas cruise out of Miami. I get so excited just thinking about it. Anybody cruise before? Hubby's been on 1 and I haven't' been before. We are just doing a shorter one as it's our first time leaving the kids and for us to fly to Miami is a good day's travel so it's a 6-7 day trip. Any parent knows that even 1 day away is rejuvenating in it's self so 4 will be magical! It's also the week before our 6 year anniversary so we'll tie that in too! So another reason to stick with the program, even thru my frustration!!
