We are approaching the 4th of July when everyone celebrates with food, wine, beer, watermelon, sweets and fireworks. It is that time of year when we are all celebrating all summer long. One thing I am realizing is that we can celebrate along with everyone else. All we have to do is enjoy the people we are with, drink lots of water to flush out any toxins or fat, and if we do eat or drink anything that is not on our plan, all we have to do is work it off. I told you that I was on vacation, and my mother-in-law makes the best desserts....well, she does. What I do is have a piece, drink lots of water, and walk around their hilly neighborhood. When I say hilly neighborhood, I mean mini mountains. I get my blood pumping, heart is racing and it is quite an effort. I also walk to and from the dock to go swimming or to get on the boat. I use every opportunity to walk and burn off calories and get my muscles working.
Today we are going into Branson, so I will be doing a lot of walking and site seeing there. I will also be searching for a book that will help up with different tips on our journey. I enjoyed taking a tip a day and really letting it sink in.
There it is my friends...Enjoy yourself and prepare for the party. Don't let yourself be defeated by your actions. Always choose what you are going to do and be okay with it. If you are not okay, then don't do it. This is a journey, a lifestyle change we can't do overnight. So let's do it together and succeed together.
Can't wait to chat tomorrow!!!! Have a fantastic day!!!
