Aulani Update! Latest Construction Photos!

This is just absolutely gorgeous!!!! You never know, this might be the next Big Disney 2012 or 2012 Vacation!! I have always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I admit that I am a bit scared to fly that distance. I know, I will have to get over it, which I will. It definitely seems like something that would make me give up the traditional vacations for an island paradise :o)

Wow, what can I say???

The past couple days (or weeks) have been so busy for me. I seem to have very little time for anything. One thing is true, I need to get it together. My dieting is going ok. Still 1 pound down, but at least I hadn't gained it back. My intentions were good, however, I am lacking motivation, I think.

I want to be honest, I eat salads, alot but I did have something called "The Millionaire Pie" from Furrs. I think that is what did it :o). It was a new discovery for me and I will HAVE to stay away from it.

So many other issues, but I am learning to let go and Let God!

I am just waiting on my cruise in June. It is sad to think that I have to have something to look forward to, to give me motivation. I need to be XX pounds lighter, so that my quality of life is better and I am really able to enjoy everything.March 4, I can begin making my reservations for the cruise. But in the meantime, I will just continue to virtually plan. At that point, the REAL planning begins.

I do have a few friends going on cruises soon (next month to be exact). Both on the Dream. I just really appreciate having REAL friends that understand who I am. But both of them are awesome. One (a co-worker) goes on the Dream with his family for Spring Break and the other (a DIS friend) leaves on the 4th of March. They both just seem so excited and I am thankful that they decided to share that with me :o). Too bad all my friends aren't the same. LOL.

Back to reality for me. Back to dieting and incorporating exercise into all of this. I am determined!!!

Until next time :o)

I think that we may do this one weekend. Anthony is from LA, so we will need to celebrate :o)

I think that we will visit Universal Studios....

As I was sitting here this morning, I started thinking that it would be a good time for us to be able to visit US while we are in Florida. We have never done it before and because we will be in Florida, three days prior to our cruise, we thought it was a good idea to give it a try. I created the following video on the US site. Too cute!:

It is Saturday!!! Snow is melting a bit...

Wow, after the past few days, the snow came in yesterday morning. Today, the sun is shining bright and it looks like an end is in sight for the snow melting. I am still not really sure if I got the rest I needed, but I am sure that I got something.

I have to admit, that I am still trying to eat right. The food that we have in the house, is somewhat healthy. I did take a peek at the scale this morning, and I am another pound down. So I guess I did O-K. I really want to make sure that this is something that I keep off. So it cant be just a fly by the seat of my pants thing. There are so many great programs out there, but I admit that they are costly. I realize that incorporating some type of exercise is what will allow me to lose even more weight. I need to get outside with the kids and do something. I am thinking that what I might do is use anything that can help. From going outside, to playing the Wii (Especially the MJ Wii game -shhh..don't tell my kids) LOL.

I work all day and I work part-time online as an instructor. I actually have to teach two days a week when I get home, so those two days are not available. I also use one additional day to do grades, etc. So I am thinking Monday, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays. I just need to figure out what I will do to get active. Most of my problem is when the weekend hits, I am so tired from the week, I am just too pooped to continue, but luckily Kelsey is starting back to soccer, so I will be forced to be outside two days a week waiting on her. She has an awesome coach, so I can leave and go to the next block and do some walking at the track while I wait. Since it is the spring it should be ok. Of course this is Texas so there is no guarantee about the weather LOL :o)

I have taken a short break from planning the vacation, until March. I think that I am just excited overall. I have a friend leaving on the cruise in March, so I will just wait patiently for her to return with the pictures of what I can expect.

We will be shoveling the driveway today and try to make it to Costco. I hear that the freeways are good to go but the neighborhoods are if'y. I guess it had to be for the Super Bowl. I just hope that the roads are not crowded trying to get anywhere in this town. It should be ok.... Right??

Until next time :o)

How Can I Stay on Track....

Thursday, February 3, 2011
Ok, we have been held hostage because of the ice situation here. We did manage to get out last night and attempt to go to Target. Well we got there are 7:30 and they WERE CLOSED!!! SMH.. It is just so sad that the good stores were closed. I didn't even try to make it to Walmart, but I may try tonight.

I am not sure if we will be out again tomorrow because there is supposed to be snow again tonight, so we will see what happens.

I have to say that it is hard staying on a diet when the only thing that you can do is sit in the house. I have been trying to stay on track, but I admit it is hard. I am making a conscious effort to do the right thing. I seriously doubt that I have lost any weight this week, but I know for sure I have not gained, so that is good right. The good healthy foods are available but I can not get to them.

Lets see what the next couple of hours with the weather. Wish me luck :o)

Until next time...

Snow Day!!!! (No..Ice Day!!)

Tuesday, February 1, 2011
You know you just gotta love Snow Days, when you work in education. However Ice Days??? Not so much. I have to admit that I did not want today off because I did not want to make up the day, but only the other side, it is better to be safe than sorry.  Here is a picture of what I see from my window, because it is WAY Too cold to go outside:
As you can see it is not much snow, but plenty of ice. That is ok, because I am taking this day to do what I hardly ever do.. Rest without doing the pt jobs and not thinking about work at all.

This morning, since I did wake up a tad bit late, I had a bowl of cereal. Frosted Flakes.I need to find something to eat for lunch. Luckily, I went to the store yesterday.

I see that I have some new followers. Welcome! Hopefully, you will enjoy my journey with me. :o)

Until next time :o)
