just sayin' ... it's HOT today

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

Dang, is it HOT today!!!! My hubby has said this almost every 10 minutes for weeks while we are visiting in St Louis where our daughter gave birth to her fourth child. But today at 100 degrees ... it's not information any more ... it is roasting my last nerve.

YES, I KNOW IT IS HOT.
I have 10 pounds of water retention hanging on my hands, feet and legs.

YES, I KNOW IT IS HOT.
My clothes are stuck to me like glue.

YES, I KNOW IT IS HOT.
My lungs are filled with water and my head feels like it is gonna explode.

Why do we get soooooo focused on one thing instead of taking in alllllll the GOOD stuff???

I am on day 236 of being on track with food and exercising. This means planning out my food for the day, ensuring I have everything on hand and then eating as planned when I am physically hungry. This means exercising for a minimum of five(5)days a week.

I feel fabulous.
I feel fit.
I feel like I can do anything.
My clothes are loose.
My skin is clear.
My hair is shiny.
I have a spring in my step.

We got to meet our gorgeous granddaughter just hours after entering the world.

We have got to spend quality time with our other three grandchildren that we usually get to see quickly once a year.

We are newly retired, so we got to do alllll of this.

We are "living" in our ol' 1975 Airstream Argosy travel trailer with our own stuff all around us just 30 minutes from DD instead of 14 hours away.

We have walked at some wonderful parks throughout the city that had shade.

I have been able to keep up with everyone with 60ish pounds off and the conditioning from exercising.

There is lots and lots and lots of good stuff going on in your day.

YES, I KNOW IT IS HOT.
I love you too, DEAR ... and that's a GOOD thing.
