I'm Home

Sunday, April 04, 2010

Hello dear Sparkfriends.
I'm home....
What a wonderful time we had....I had to do some reflecting back, I could not have done this 3 years ago....I would not have done this 3 0r 4 years ago.....

We went to a new place, I had no idea what I would see or find, a new adventure...
we went to the Sand Dunes, it was so beautiful, but windy and cold....I decided that we came here to walk on the sand dunes and I was going to give it my best try to get as far as I could....it goes up to 14000 feet.....it was 33 degrees and 40 mile an hour winds....I did not get to the top, the further you go the colder and winder it got, but I did do my best...but once the wind was blowing sand in my eyes, ears, mouth...I had enough and turned around and went back....except for a few young men everyone else had gone back before me....(Gary did not try it as he was just getting over a clod and well he hates cold and wind) This was my journey and something I was trying to prove to myself that I can do things like this now.....and I'm pleased that I tried it and will try again this summer...
Then we went to a place called Zapata Falls (not sure I spelled it right) and way it was a 4 mile hike, moderate trail, but it too was windy and cold..and almost there was icy..but we made it to the fall that were frozen over, it was a beautiful site and we can say we walked over the falls (Gary did do this)..it was a real thrill for me to be able to do this...this was part of my goal when I started with sparkpeople, to be able to hike and do outdoor things with Gary and keep up with him. So another goal meet.....I'm smiling from ear to ear.....
We also visited a brewery, they also make root beer and creme soda....I was able to jump up on the bar stool with no help..... we ate out and I did pretty good eating healthy and watching my portion size....I do believe I will see a gain tomorrow because of the sodium in the food but should be back to my regular weight......I did take snacks and things for those times when I might not find healthy things.....but found good green salads, and fresh fruits...the hotel had fresh fruit and oatmeal for breakfast (lots of other things too ) but I choose what I knew was healthy, had egg whites for good protein too.

Well I could go on and on but just wanted to report a great trip and I even told a few people about SparkPeople and handed out a few cards....

Hope you all had a wonderful week end too...
if not tomorrow is a new day and time for a fresh start, don't let anything to stop you from reaching your goals.....If you keep going you can make it......together we can make it.....


HUGS
