weekend fun

Well the next weigh-in is tomorrow but unfortunately I won't get to see my fellow contestants :-(.

My 7yo grandson is competing at an out of town ATA regional karate tournament tomorrow morning.  It's his first tournament as a "Karate Kid", previously being a "Tiny Tiger".  He's a Brown belt as of last weekend and all excited.  He's working hard on his form to try to place so my daughter and I decided to stay at the nearby water park this weekend as a treat.

I am soooo looking forward to the water park because I haven't been able to do any "play" with the kids or workouts in the water since my eye surgery (Dr's orders because of the risk of infection).  Tomorrow will be 4 weeks out of water so I'll probably be as excited as the kids at the park!  Hopefully I won't add any pounds though because I've been to these places before and they are extremely diet UN-friendly!  I don't want to be a "buzz kill" either so if they want to buy a pizza I'll just have to force (chuckle chuckle) myself to eat a piece. Guess I'll see on Monday how I managed.

I hope everyone managed to lose weight this month. I know it's been a struggle for many of us especially myself.  I ended up gaining at the beginning of the month but lost those pounds and then a few more.  I've turned things around and that's what counts.  We're half way there and I'm still on track to my personal goal!

Good Luck everyone!
