Well summer is here, and I am afraid the day are getting a little to hectic for me, but I am going to try my best to color in the lines this summer even when it gets a little crazy. I will be gon for the weekend and we will be celebrating my Mom's 86'th Birthday. There will probably be lots of fast food and a lot of choices to make. I hope I make the best choice even if my options are less than favorable. Last night I was so tempted to order in pizza, for the big crowd I had over, but instead I grilled chicken and made veggies on the grill. We went go-carting and out for icecream. I am so proud of myself, I only had about 10 licks then I passed it off to dear hubby. Now if I can make it through the weekend. This is my life, not a six month program or goal so I need to see it that way. Just another day, just another weekend.

I don't love rain, that is no secret. I do love soup though, and how fun to have soup on a rainy day. Gives me a full and warm feeling. Love all the veggies and it is so low in points I can eat it with every meal. I can also throw an exercise DVD in the DVD player and in the privacy of my own home I can stay fit. Who knows this may be a new way of life for me, it seems like it will never stop raining.
So for today I am going to say I love the rain, but please Lord let it go away tomorrow.
