Tonight I am listening to the sounds of some much needed rain & reflecting upon the busy week now behind.
Rewinding to Memorial Day weekend:
My daughter became sick with a stomach bug from Friday night – Saturday, however managed to make a quick recovery and enjoy some of the holiday weekend.
We had a great time at a family BBQ last Sunday. We brought along some portobello mushrooms to grill along with some spinach, cheese, flank pinwheels. Yummy! I had a taste of the pinwheels but happily stuck to veggies and the Bombay Saphire, tonic & limes that I sipped on around the fire pit. I also had a great time playing yard soccer with the kids. Thank you Snyders of Belvidere for another good time👍
The following day I joined my daughter Ava, and her softball team, in the Memorial Day Parade. The girls came prepared with candy, and were so excited to throw it out to the spectators. Together we marched from the Hackettstown train station down to the Cemetery located on Mountain Ave. It was a great time.
On the way home from the parade, I thought about how in years past I would drop the children with their teams and join the crowd sitting curb side. It felt good to be moving and at the same time supporting my daughter & all of the brave men and woman who have served our country. It was a win – mind, body & soul.
The below picture was taken of the girls enjoying the shade as we waited for the parade to commence. My daughter Ava thought it would be an excellent idea to wear a pink, fuzzy mustache while marching. And so did I! Go Ava:
Following the parade, we came back to the house and enjoyed a nice snack:
And, after a busy weekend, I dove into the short work week feeling full of energy and once again finding great options at the Met-Life salad bar for lunch:
I am now down 30 lbs and way up in the energy department. I continue to feel motivated, inspired & ready to take on more physical challenges. I missed my friends this past week at Pro-Activity & am looking forward to seeing them next week.
I am grateful for family & friends. Especially those who continue to support with positive influence. Thank you, thank you, thank you.💚
