Thank you for so many sweet comments and emails about the failed adoption. It was rough but we learned a lot in the process. We have renewed hope and continue to pursue adoption. I am certain there will be good news in the future.
In other news, some of my old pants fit! It came at just the right time too. I am was down to only one pair of pants. Now I have 3-4 I can wear. Some of them are tight, but they loosen up during the day. Pretty soon I will be able to wear a bunch of my old clothes from when I lost weight last year. I can't wait!
I went on my longest bike ride to date. We biked on Saturday for 2 hours and 5 mins. I am super sore but I love it. I wanted to quit at 1.5 hours but I figured if my 51 year old mama can do it, so can I! Thanks for the inspiration Mom! We are trying to build up to 3 hours so we can do a biking trail in the everglades that my parents did when I was a little kid and strapped to the back of her bike. We are thinking the fall will be a nice time to go.
Okay, I am so bad. I still have not set up my Body Bugg. I have had people ask how I like it, and the reason I have not responded is because I am ashamed I haven't used it yet. I am planning on doing it in the next week. (I hope.) I truly am so curious to see what it says about my calorie burn.
I will be gone until next Monday. I am leaving Thursday morning for a friends wedding in Orlando. Excited for the wedding, a little nervous about how this will affect my food choices. We will be eating out for almost every meal while we are there and I am not sure I will have much time for exercise. I am going to bring some long lasting fruit like apples and maybe some other non-perishable snacks like walnuts so I can substitute things if I have to. I will not be drinking an alcohol. I have already volunteered to be the Designated Driver. I'll let you know how it goes.
