The busy bee

Hey All! Just wanted to say that I am still here. Things have been crazy busy in CO. I am so excited that I will be headed home this Thursday after class. I should arrive in Dallas around midnight, woo-hoo, to sleep in my bed!

My son began High School today, geez, time flies! He said he enjoyed his first day, of course, no school work, just getting settled into all of his classes. I really just can't wait to get home and spend some time with him.

I will be back in Denver on the 31st. I return to Dallas on the 4th for good. Yippee!

Don't get me wrong, traveling for work has been a very fun experience. I have had the opportunity to sight see and meet one of my most favorite SPARKERS SKTRAINOR! The weather in Denver is amazing and well, it is simply gorgeous here. My hotel is really nice but I have to admit, there is no place like home!

I kinda feel like August has just blown by. I have basically been out of the town the entire month and just don't know where the time has gone. Things will slow back down when I am home on the 4th and things can get back to normal. I can't wait to get on bike and enjoy a ride. It has been so long since I have rode.

I have plenty of blogs to sit down and write and gorgeous photo's to share. I've had the opportunity to visit the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Evans and Red Rock Amphitheatre, not to mention the beautiful Denver Botanic Gardens.

Right now I am focusing on keeping up my workouts. I have been doing my best to order healthier food but I am still eating out every single meal, 3 meals a day. I really feel bloated but I am not going to worry about it right now. I am working out and will get 100% focused when I am home and can count calories, cook my own food and ride my bike, do my exercise videos and so on.

I have set a new goal, my birthday is in October (the 8th to be exact) and would like to have lost 75 pounds by then. I know I am going to need to kick it into high gear in September but I know I can do it! One meal at a time, one day at a time!


  1. Keep it up! You are doing great and I know you'll reach your goal. :)

  2. Thanks for the update! You ARE a busy bee! Good job on keeping up with your exercise routine. Enjoy your visit home!

  3. I couldn't imagine being about to eat healthy while traveling. It'd be so hard not to give into temptation.

    First day of high school eh. That's scary. I don't remember mine, but I was probably crapping myself out of fear. :)

  4. It's so hard when traveling to eat healthy! Even when you order the things that seem smart its hard to know what they've put it in, so it sounds like youre doing your absolute best, and really that's all you can ask of yourself :)

    You keep motivating me to give riding a bike a try. I'm always nervous that its either going to be too hard or I'm going to be in a lot of pain in the you know where region due to my weight and the exceptionally small seats, ha!

  5. I've been missing you. Glad you're back, and I look forward to watching as you reach your goal.

  6. Hi! I found your blog through a link, and I am just awash in how much we have in common! I live in Denver, I am trying to lose 100 pounds, and I love the progress you have made! Good for you!!!! I'll be following your blog from here on out. If you want to stop by the Ranunculus Adventures, I'd love this visit! Keep up the great work!
