Went through a rough patch....Lost my way for just a little while. No real damage done ~ No weight gain (but no weight loss either). Still exercised, journaled food, got my water in etc. Still stayed on the path, even though I struggled.....
Thanks to you, my super, supportive, wonderful friends, I'm back in the swing of things again because of your awesome support, love, and prayers. Today I feel hopeful and excited. I've got a new plan in place and I'm ready to go!!!
My summer bucket list was so successful, I decided to do one for the fall. I find these lists really help me stay organized as well as they are great reminders of all the fun I had. There is nothing worse then realizing in September, that you wanted to do fun things in the summer. Then you're bummed out because you missed the opportunity. I've done that for years and I finally got tired of wasting my time and missing out on some fun!
This past summer I had 15 items on my bucket list and I got 13 of them done. (See results below).
Here is my "NEW BUCKET LIST FOR THE FALL"....
1.) Start & Participate in the Fitness Challenge at the gym.
2.) Pumpkin Patches Every Weekend!
3.) Read 3 books.
4.) Take a Cookie Decorating Class.
5.) Take the Grand babies swimming.
6.) Have Harvest Party for family.
7.) Send Family Newsletter.
8.) Volunteer at the Union Gospel Mission.
9.) Cookie day with daughter & granddaughters.
10.) Arts & Crafts Day.
11.) Plant Fall Flowers.
12.) Run Like Hell – 5(k).
Here's my summer Bucket List. I had a BLAST!!!!!!!!!
1.) Sign up for one of the Dragon Boat Row Teams and row 2 days a week. Then enter at least one race. DID NOT GET THIS ONE DONE. I DID MY RESEARCH A LITTLE TOO LATE AND WAS NOT ABLE TO FIND A TEAM THAT WANTED A NEWBIE. THEY WERE ALREADY IN RACE MODE.
