Hubby has been awesome on this trip. We arrived around 7 p.m. last night and TOPS stuff was going on downstairs. Hubby fixed the kids sandwiches and let me just go ahead and catch the last of the evening session. Then I took the kids swimming at 9 p.m.... I had no intentions of getting wet, but I got soaked! They loved it.
ok...gotta shower and eat some breakfast....session starts in about an hour. Talk to you later! Wish you were here! ;)
P.S. My back is doing great! Thank you for praying!

The defeated part-- my unreliable scales are showing a 6 pound gain. **insert sobbing here** GAIN. gain? why? That is so discouraging.
But I won't give up. I probably didn't watch my cals good enough the past few days. I *know* I didn't get enough rest, if that has anything to do with it.
I took a water pill, just in case it is water. I hope it is water.
Nevertheless, I am kind of down as I go to bed tonight. I'm eating a stick of cheese, 2 pc turkey breast slices and a pudding cup. I am going to sit in bed and eat and watch another Lonesome Dove episode.
I am such a wishy washy person when it comes to emotions and feelings. I wish I could be more consistently encouraged. Why am I giving the scales so much power? I know I did what I was supposed to do this week. I worked hard. Who cares what the scales say.
I will probably be chipper again in the morning. I am just tired. So tired. tired. tired. tired. tired. tired. tired. tired..................................tired.

I had a hard time with endurance today while walking. I was exhausted after a mile every time. I walked 3.5 miles today. That means that I HAVE to walk 7 miles tomorrow and 7 on Saturday NO EXCUSES...because the walkathon ends at Saturday at midnight.
Therefore I have to get to bed soon so I can get up at 5:30 for prayer and then my first walk of the day. It is 8:41 right now. I'm going to check email, read a couple of blogs, shower, put the kids to bed, sit in bed with hubby and eat our supper watching yet another sequel to Lonesome Dove. (I love that show)
I currently have $9 more than what was required to go to SRD so yay!!!!!!! Now I've just got to live through this walk-a-thon!
After tonight's supper, I will have eaten 1950 cals on the dot, which is my cal limit.
Goodnight...get some rest...kiss your hubby/wife...and enjoy living.

You can spend your whole life building something from nothing
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway
You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach
and you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway
Chorus: God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
And when I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway, I do it anyway
This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe
that tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway
You can love someone with all your heart, for all the right reasons,
and in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway
You can pour your soul out singing a song you believe in
that tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway, sing it anyway
I sing, I dream, I love, anyway

I had 78 cals to spare!
I mowed the yard....so along with my walking from earlier, I walked a total of 2 miles (55 minutes).
Running points balance is: 140 (I'm outta the hole again!)
I'm busy prepping for next week which is going to be time crunched between school, revival and walking 30 miles. whew! but I CAN and WILL do it! I'm planning to do things tonight and tomorrow to make next week easier...such as ironing ahead and cooking ahead so it can just be microwaved...oh and planning my meals so I don't even have to think "what are we gonna eat?".

Bedtime snack was Mickey D's cone.
I had 13 cals left.
I walked 2 and 1/3 miles today! 56 minutes.
Running points balance is negative 147.
I finally finished watching Lonesome Dove.
It is 11:52 pm and it is storming like crazy.
I plan to sleep in tomorrow.
I lost another 2.5 pounds! That makes 14 and 1/4 total in 8 weeks! I was the best loser at TOPS. I announced that I am going to go to SRD and I passed out sponsor requests.
I am just thrilled that I am actually doing this! This weight loss/diet thing is different than anytime before. This time it is for real. and for life. Just the fact that hubby said yes to us attending SRD lets me know that he sees a difference too. Wow. That is so exciting!
I'm off to read a few blogs while I keep an eye on the weather.
Goodnight and thanks for being my cyber friends :)

P.S. My computer is not recognizing my USB port for some reason, so I can't upload any pics. You all know what ice cream and hamburgers look like anyway. LOL Just scroll down a ways. There are plenty of ice creams and hamburgers through the pages of this blog! ;)
