Hey lady! I love your AK plans - I hope you stay cooler and the mystery rash stays away. Of course I'm so excited to see the new FL area too!

I think Boma twice is great - very different foods anyway. We had dinner then breakfast when we stayed there. Love the "more drink than ice" I think we can all relate to a day like that.

Congrats on your weight loss goal!

Things are starting to look better here, BTW - at least on one front. A few more battles to win, but we know God is in control.

This is great!! I have much admiration for those who do this, I have no ambition to start running yet. I do however have ideas of rowing.

Unfortunately being so long away, there's not a lot else I can do for the moment, but I have my trip to Paris in the meantime which is coming along very nicely
True, but at least you have Paris!! Keep up the great work with your couch to 5k!!

Thank you Tammie. I'm beyond excited to see the new FL, Mackie won't look at any pictures of it as it's progressing, she wants to see it for the first time in person. So, I'm doing the same so we can experience it for the first time together.

Thank you, I'm having a tough week this week.

So good to hear, you'll have to PM me with the details.

Today is a beautiful Fall day, it's 62 and the sky is cast over. It finally feels like Fall here.

Which is saying something when you live in the mid southern part of Texas.

I'm a lucky girl since I get to have the 3 day weekend to myself, my Mr. Incredible and Mackie are in Houston (of course the weekend AFTER Brook is here ) helping out a family friend by clearing a lot. Well, hubby is, I'm not sure what Mackie will end up doing.
Today they are out on the lake playing on jet skis since this beautiful Fall weather won't catch up to them until tomorrow, the cooler weather on Sunday will make for a perfect day to clear a lot, wouldn't you say?

Since it's such beautiful weather I opened up the house, I love being able to open up the house and smell the fresh air, Spring and Fall are my two favorite times of the year for such a thing, even if it's a bit nippy in the air I still love having the windows open.
However, it seems to be driving my poor crazy!!
He loves to be in the windows and smell the outdoor air, but the poor baby can't sleep all day when there's so much to check out with all the windows open!
He just keeps running from window to window and then over to me, meowing at me like he's confused and doesn't know what to do.

This would be a perfect evening for beef vegetable soup, once it hits this time of the year I love making one pot recipes, beef veggie, chili, taco, minestrone w/out the pasta, are some of my top favorite soups. Do y'all have favorite low cal. soup recipes you like to make?
I should break out some of the BOMA (had to slip some Disney in there somewhere) soup recipes to see if any are on the low cal side? Probably one of my favorite things to eat when on property, BOMA soups, can't get enough of them, along with some of the hummus and salads they serve. Oh man, oh man!
This will probably be my favorite place to eat on the trip since I won't have to worry too much about what I'm putting into my body. We end up eating dinner there at least twice per trip. Yes I know....I just told y'all we'd eat there twice in one day.
Mackie and I loooove to eat at BOMA's, even though she's not an adventurous eater (at all), she loves to eat there. I don't know if it's because she can pick what ever she wants and no one is there to tell her she can't have it or to pick something else from the menu or if it's all the wonderful desserts she loves so much.
All I know is any one of my family members is very happy when I tell them I'm making ADR's for this place twice in a trip.

Since I'm not doing an PTR update just yet...I will report now that I'm having a sucky week with my weight. They happen from time to time.
I gained in the middle of the week, but I am back down to the weight I started the week at, so I'm not sure if I'll be meeting my weeks goal or not. This will make two weeks (or is it three) I've not made my goal, but the bright side is....(I think I mentioned this already) I did bump up my weight workout with adding one more all over body set of reps, which means I'm up to four sets of reps. now and I'm already seeing a difference!!
I can tell in my arms already, and I'm hoping I'm not seeing things, but I think I'm seeing a difference in my legs already. Thank Goodness!! That part of my body seems to be taking the longest to get with the program, the thighs and hiney don't always like to get with the program as fast as one would like.
I really shouldn't complain or knock my progress since I'm light years away from what I started out like. I can't imagine being a size 24 in the big girls dept. vs. the regular women's dept. in a size 14 is anything to sneeze at.
WOW! When you actually see it written out....I have come a long way!!!
I did manage to find some p.j.'s again this week, I'm excited because I'm actually getting into some of the Disney p.j.'s that I had longed to get into!! I'll get some pics of them and show them to you when I get the chance.

Well, I better get. I need to get to the store and get the items I need to make some yummy soup!! It's soup weather, people!!

Be blessed and have a wonderful weekend. I do hope to get on here and get a PTR update soon. Stay tuned.

I would love to have your pizza and African chicken soup recipes. If you don't mind sharing.

10 sizes. Wow!!!! Just remember if you are concerning to muscle it weighs more and hat may be some of what you are seeing.
I'm hoping you are right about the muscle. This was my concern when I started the additional reps., in the long run it should pay off big.

Looking forward to it!! And thank you about the pj's, it's hard to break out of the rut of not expecting anything to fit.

Nice job Camille! As Cynthia said, if you are building muscle that could be some of the weight gain/leveling off. I think you are doing a great job!!!

I'm sure you will continue to shed pounds!!!!!!

Thank you Tim, read above. I think you're right, I'm pretty sure I'm losing inches, even my mom said something about me looking thinner than from the week before.

A NEW, BEAUTIFUL READER!!!

I'll give you the Capt.O welcome...



And thank you so much for your kind words. Congrats to you, girl! You've been doing it too, and you look fantastic!!

I haven't shown any pics on here yet, only a few Dis brothers and sisters have seen how far I've come. I kinda want to save the reveal for closer to the end of the PTR.

Well, scratch the idea of watching Maroo experience the new FL for the first time!!

She's there right now!! And she's having a ball, or as she's saying..."I'm all Disney geeked out!!" She's been on LM twice, she was even stuck in the que on the second go around and she was pleased as punch about it! Said it gave her the time to soak it all in that time, and without taking pictures.

She was able to go into Belle's Story Time yesterday and I believe she's going into it again as we speak.

I'm so excited for her!! No person is more deserving of having a great time and doing it just for herself this time.

She had such an amazing day, and it thrills me to no end!

The second best thing to being there is knowing your fellow Dis brothers and sisters are there enjoying themselves.
