I'm Here - just having a "busy" moment...

Can you say Busy....we all have it from time to time, but sometimes I wonder - what if the world would stop spinning - would I stop with it????

Friday night - Cub Scout Bridging ceremony (where the Scouts move from one rank to the next) - a few late nights perparing for that and about 100 people came for the presentation - it all went well, but the whole time I was sort of wishing that I had been able to drop another 10 pounds before this event. Sigh....I will get there.

Then pack for Lake Tahoe - Satruday Morning was 5 hours of Day Camp Preparation - Tahoe bound by 3 pm - swimming (yes, the pool was warm), snow tubing, snowball fights....maybe lack of sleep, the fact that I want to be thinner, that the cost was just too much to have Aman go skiing or the fact that I felt like I can't be myself around some of my family made the rest of the weekend hard...sigh....

Sunday Drive home - heading down the hill just after 8 pm the rain was coming down hard - I was grateful there wasn't snow, but then again when you mix Rain with Fog with an 18 Wheeler next to you at 50 miles per hour and the roads really don't have good marks on it because they have been beaten up from the heavy winter of snow tire chains, well, let's just say this.....that 50 miles per hour dropped to 35, sometimes 40 mph and that 2 hour drive ran into 3 hours and I really should have left Tahoe earlier.....did a few Hail Mary's on my drive home.

The rest of this week is filled with more family dinners (sister does not leave until Thursday), cousin sleepover at my house one night, - oh, and we still have to finish that 4th Grade Mission project ......and still trying to fit my daily job into that (LOl)...yep - busy it the word.

Didn't hit my 25 pound lost mark - but I am down another 1 pound - and still doing good. Just wishing for a few more hours of sleep or time in my day to clean my house, work on my IN BOX and get a moment to just say....ahhhhhh - So, if I don't get a chance to comment, have a funny thing to say to you, cheer you on because you dropped another 2 pounds (CONGRATS MER), then just know that I am near by and will catch up with all of you soon.

Staying MOtivated

Oh, you have little Scouts! As sad as I am about my boys getting older, I can't wait to sign them up and become a "den mother."

You're right, though, you WILL get there. Sometimes you have just resign yourself to the fact that weight loss and time don't necessarily go the way you want them to. But the WILL happen. That's a certainty!

Congrats on your 25 pounds that are no longer being carried around on your body. That's IMPRESSIVE! I'm cheering you on!

Go, chica! GO!

@McGee - don't wish the Scout too fast on your boys - somehow I got "roped" into being a leader of 30 Scouts...Den Leader is only one of the hats that I wear...Can you say Volunteer. I love it, but it can be time consuming. and I am ALMOST to the 25 pounds...was hoping to hit it this weekend, but it just didn't happen, still staying positive - little goals add up to big goals!!! Have a good week!!!

You know busy just becomes our middle name with kids, jobs, etc. It is hard to fit everything in, but you do what you can. Right?? Sounds like a great place for a weekend get-away. You will get to where you want to be fitness/helath wise; one pound at a time. Remember: Rome was not built in a day.

Thanks for all your support, to me these last weeks as we moved forward from the fire. michele

With all that you have going on, I think you're pretty darn amazing, Mo! (We're on the same wavelength, lady! I just blogged about my difficulty in keeping up and how doing the things I want to do gets pushed to the side too much for my liking.) Congrats on the 1 lb. loss - you're doing great! (And you'll hit the 25 lb. mark before you know it!)
