Tis the Season to say hello!

We start with a sunrise over the river at the outlook at Petit Jean State Park
We really have embraced camping life. The more times we get away, the better our mood has been. I think camping has saved our sanity! I know it does something to my soul, to be outdoors.

The year is almost over. Crabby McSlacker wrote on my post before this, the one done in November. That reminded me that I wanted to blog again this month! Thanks Crabby!

So, life has been a bitch. I don't want to bore you with all the excuses, but I have not been practicing what I preach. No surprise then, that I gained weight. I am at 237 today. 

Not cool Sherri, not cool. Well the leggings are kinda cool.

I KNOW I have to adjust my attitude and make a stronger commitment to living a better life. I am working on that. I almost stopped leading my weight loss support group. I almost gave up on myself. Almost. What is that saying? You only fail if you quit. I refuse to fail. I refuse to quit. I CAN figure out what kind of life I want and I CAN achieve that. Know what else? I WILL!

I had my annual checkup last week. All the blood work was just fine. Phew, no diabetes! My blood pressure was up though. Not good. I have taken steps to come back in January like gang busters, in my support group. I have lots of plans for the future there. I 'feel' an attitude change coming over me. I hope to keep sharing things with my few readers that are sticking with me too. Thank you to them!

We'll end the post with a moonrise taken at Petit Jean, near our campsite.

Oops one other last thing, Abby and Dex wish you all happy holidays 
and a super duper new year!

After the frenzy

Abby is still around and about.  I know she's been pretty quiet though.  She kinda over celebrated the new year's arrival. A souther...
