Son #2--and Courage!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

This is son#2, the Pilot with Air Canada.
The past 2 days he was in Cuba---as we speak, he is "winging" his way back to Toronto.
In the picture, he is standing in front of a cathedral built in 1591--OLD!
another photo he snapped---looks so old eh?

a plate lunch he bought--lobster, rice and beans and plantain chips--
He is ""part"" Chinese--LOL----Chinese love to take pictures of food!

Which brings me back to------FOOD-----Spark-----I read 2 blogs so far this AM---One, a lady has lost 60 pounds in 9 mos--In another, a lady is losing a pound/ month on Spark---Does it matter how we do it, as long as we DO it??
Both blogs were very inspiring!
And---what is the alternative?----
We know, as soon as we stop Sparking, the weight piles on----and more--
I did well yesterday----not a perfect day (I made a cake)----but----better than if I weren't Sparking-
How did y'all do???------Remember -----The number of times you fall down is irrelevant. The number of times you have the courage (It's the courage !!)----to get back up is what matters.

    Thanks for the pictures - l love looking at other people's photos.

    What you said about the 2 different blogs is so true. No matter how quickly or slowly we are losing, at least we are losing.

    I did well yesterday and today - even did some exercise both days.

    Thanks for your encouragement emoticon emoticon .

    Well, how did I do? I am so like you...yesterday I did fine...but don't go back to the day before that...I am just like you...and we seem to have all the same ups and downs.

    Better subject! I love your son #2...he's a sweetie! He leads what looks like a blessed life for sure! I wish my son #2 was like him...my #2 is too much like his mother, I fear...at least what I used to be like.

    We can DO this for sure! Keep bloggin' and I will for sure keep readin'...now have a blessed day like son' #2, Lynda!
