Guess where I am?!!! I drove down to Virginia with my cousin to suprise my Aunt! I just love the South! It took us about 2 days. I didn't say anything the week prior to going because she reads my blog and I wanted it to be a total suprise. She was expecting my cousin (her son) but had no idea I was with. Boy was she shocked! He dropped me off at the end of her driveway and I called her to really throw her off and she was making sweet potato fries so when I walked up to the house and she saw me I yelled "so I hear your making sweet potatoes!" LOL. It was perfect. She was speechless.
We had a nice drive down. I got to see a lot of beautiful scenery and I took pictures. I brought my laptop and I will post pictures when I can use wi-fi somewhere if we go into town. Right now I am on her computer and she has dial up so I wont be posting on my blog much until I come home. At this point I am not really sure when that will be. I'd like to be home the week prior to my Halloween party on the 27th of October. I will be flying back. Right now it is up in the air but I might go to Florida and fly out of Orlando. How exciting!! I haven't been to Florida in a long time and it would be so nice to go back. I was born in Jacksonville and the last time I visited FL I was about 15.
In my previous post about me taking the bull by the horns meant that I was going to be going out of state and I am treating this vacation almost as a weight loss "boot" camp. I'd like to go back home thinner than I was when I left! So far so good. We arrived at my Aunts Wednesday night and since then I have lost 4 pounds!!! I am not going to lie; I have cheated a little but that kind of is inevitable when your on the road. I did cheat in moderation and didn't exceed my calorie intake. I brought my oatmeal with me and have been having that for breakfast and have been having my green tea but it's only been about 3 cups a day. I have been keeping up with my water and my Aunt has been making these really good fruit smoothies.
Yesterday I did some yard work for about 2 hours and sweated my butt off! It was about 80 degrees but felt like it was 90 right in the sun! Today my cousin and I explored the woods behind her house. I will post a picture of her back yard at the bottom! It is just gorgeous here!
This is the first time in my blogging history that I have not updated every day. That is ok because I have a legit reason. I hope you all will still keep checking in and I will post more when I can!
As of today I am 68 pounds down! I have only 32 more to go until I will have lost 100 pounds!
