Good day overall
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
I enjoyed a day in the sun, watching my son have the honor of reading the names of veterans receiving legacy stones. And seeing my father in law, uncle in law and husband feel honored as they received the stones they earned by serving in the military. It was a very special day to remember those who have lived through many aspects of the military, including their family members and loved ones. I am a veteran's wife, daughter, granddaughter, niece and daughter in law. I have grown up with military all around me so this day means quite a bit to me. I see it not as a holiday, but a day to remember all the men and women who have given their lives to serve the duty they have chosen so selflessly do. I honor their families and loved ones too because they sacrifice also. So thank you. You were not forgotten.
After the ceremony, we head back to the inlaws...no healthy choices to my surprise. I ate very little and should have had more water. That being said, a good night's rest and a jump into a new day and I will be feeling much better about being in control of my food choices and exercise routine. Not having any veggies or fruit or melon, that really through me. I didn't have any time this morning to pack anything like I usually would because we were running late. And since one of my kids was part of the ceremony, we could not be late. So instead of eating much of what they had to eat, I took very little so I did not make my host upset, as they were watching like hawks who took what and were asking how it was. I couldn't get away with not taking anything.
Tomorrow is a new day .... a day to be happy to get back my healthy food and exercise. And alittle lotion for my sun burn too! lol I did wear sun screen and got as much shade as possible but sometimes you just can't escape it. It isn't too bad I should be ok. It is nice to be home.
