I cannot take this anymore. Like the little yoddling mountain man on that Price Is Right game, my weight is climbing and it is getting out of control. I have worked to hard over the years to let all my hard work go to hell. I am putting a stop to this now. My wrist feels 80% better, so I am going to suck it up and head to the gym, it has been over 3 weeks. After school today I am going running with a friend and since I am going to be in my gym clothes I might as well go to the gym and see what I can do.
The kitchen is the next area that I need to tackle. I HAVE TO GET MY WATER IN! Yesterday, I had 1.5L and that is a start, but I really have to drink more. I need to stay away from the sweets, especially the baked sweets.

We took a second day trip into Penonome. This was a shopping trip, that involved a trip to the grocery store, a craft store to get souvenirs and a cigar factory.

|One thing I loved about Panama was that there were beautiful coloured flowers everywhere|
|This is a tapir. I have never seen one before this day.|
|It is about the 3 feet high. Tapir is a mammal, it is similar to a pig.|
|Beautiful lake, can you see me in the background?|
|After the zoo, we were off to a small rain forest.|
|We were lead to a beautiful waterfall.|
|This little frog's thoughts were too funny.|
|We then went to a mineral bath. We spread mud all over us, wait for it to dry and then took a dip in the bath.|
|I know that this is not a fashion blog by any means. But, I would like to that this time to share a few of my favourite outfits from the trip.|
|Love this dress! I think it is Jones of New York.|
|I love strips!|

Everyday they left us fresh flowers as little accents around the sink or in the towels. It was really a nice touch. Bedrooms had two double beds and were clean with a nice flat screen TV.

Hello Bloggies and Bloggettes,
I am back from my wonderful vacation in Panama. I have a number of pictures to share with you, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. Unfortunately, I hurt my wrist on vacation (too much pool volleyball). It hurt so much that I couldn't hold anything in my left hand. I went to the Dr. yesterday and he told me that I have severe tendinitis and gave me a prescription for anti-inflammatories. I have decided to take the week off from any gym activity to make sure that my wrist gets back to 100%.
I also gained 5 pounds, but I am dealing with that now. Stay tuned...
**My apologies to the Spring Chick Crew. With the vacation, I totally blew the last few weeks**

As you know I am leaving for Panama on Saturday. I went to look for a bathing suit. I found a nice bikini that actually fit. With my large breasts it is hard to find a top that fits in any bathing suit, one or two piece. This one was nice, but I couldn't do it. It is the stretch marks that kill me. My child birth stomach ( note- I have no children)looked no bueno. I looked at myself and all I can think is that no one on the beach wants to see this. On one hand I am happy that I have made progress and I looked ok, but on the other hand I just couldn't do it. Maybe if I was the only one on the beach...

Tonight we are going to go out to eat after Parent Teacher Interviews. I have visited the website and decided that I am going to have a soup and a salad. I am going to ask them if they can add a piece of chicken to the salad for a small charge, if not oh well.
Hopefully, you are all having a great day!
