Overall this was a successful month - not a whole lot of weight loss, but a few pounds and I'm on a more regular exercise program and have a better attitude about losing the weight more gradually, keeping it off for good, eating healthy instead of not enough trying to lose too fast, and being more relaxed with my life and having a great doctor visit with super cholesterol numbers.
Had a nice vacation in the beautiful Smokies at the beginning of the month, even though the hot temps and high humidity and air quality warnings kept us from hiking as much as we would have liked to.
Had the worst storm ever in our town resulting in the loss of 3 beautiful trees and part of our roof - BUT no one was hurt, the rest of our house is fine, the trees are down and we found a landscape designer that will probably make our front lawn look even more beautiful than it was before the storm and our roof was repaired quickly by the original roofers at a very reasonable price!
In summary - there are always ups and downs but hopefully we can always see the good in everything, even though sometimes it takes a long time to realize that. Hope all my super spark friends have had some successful times this month also and we will all be on to an even better August!!!!
