Saturday Delight

Yep, that sums up our day today. It was probably about 72 degrees, perfect outdoors weather. The kids and I started our day off by getting a bucket of soapy water and washing the car, drying it and vacuuming it. After that, the kids rode their bikes up and down the driveway while I piddled around the yard. Out came the chalk and the driveway once again was decorated in various colors, names, flowers, rainbows etc. I looked down at my watch and it was time for lunch. Lunch, for me, was a zesty pickle spear, 2 slices of pepper jack cheese, a handful of BBQ pork rinds and a cup of turkey salad. Yummy lunch!

After lunch I took the kids to the McDonald's drive thru and bought them each a small vanilla cone and we headed to the airport to watch the planes and skydivers. That is always something the kids and I enjoy! What a beautiful day for the divers!!! And then finally back home.

I cannot remember the last time I manually washed my car let alone spent hours out in the yard. Since my journey began on this low carb WOE, my energy has continued to soar to new levels. The pounds are melting away and I feel better than I have in many years. I do still have times where my sweet tooth kicks in, but that is nothing that an Atkins Advantage bar can't cure. I did not get on the scale today. I figure I will wait a few days and see how I do.

Hope you all are doing well on your weight loss journey. No matter what plan you are on, if you stick with it, you will see results. If you fall off, get right back on. Do your best and the best will show in you. Peace.
