.... and time to get back to work on spark again. I missed it really while gone. I can sure tell a difference in how I feel when I'm not following it. So since Friday is the first day of a new month, it's going to be the first day of starting over for me. I could start over tomorrow but I have to ease my way back into it!!
Vacation was good. Bob and I spent 4 nights in Tucson and then 5 nights in Vegas. I really loved Tucson and almost wished we had bypassed Vegas and just stayed in Tucson. I loved Vegas the last time we went (6 years ago), but this time was different. You couldn't walk out of your hotel without being approached by time share people with people promising you dinners or shows for just a few hours of your time! It was really getting annoying. But they were outside of every hotel!!! It really just turned me off big time. And it didn't help that I got really sick Wednesday night and spent most of Thursday and Friday in bed. It's going to be awhile before I can eat a hamburger with guacamole and a side order of onion rings again. Not a pretty site!! But I'm about back to normal thank goodness!!
I haven't weighed myself since before vacation. I'm sure I gained a little but hopefully not a lot. We did a lot of walking. And when I say "a lot", I mean I was getting up to 20,000 steps in on some days. And averaging about 15,000 on most of the other days. And we'd only eat breakfast and dinner each day. And I made sure that I consumed a ton of water since it was over 100 degrees outside everyday. I think next year I would rather go somewhere cooler and quieter. Maybe a cabin in the woods at a lake. No crowds, no noise, no heatwave!
My daughter came home today. She had flown to Georgia to stay with her grandparents while Bob and I went on vacation. I cried when I saw her get off the plane today. I was so happy to have her home. But after a trip to the mall for school shoes and some clothes, she was home and gone again! Making up for lost time with her friends. So here I am alone again. But only for a few hours.
Guess it's time to wrap this up and check out spark and see what new things I can discover about it.
