View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day

The past 2 days the scale read 223. I know the scale should not make me happy like that but is is nice to see a drop and have it stick around for more than a day:). If it could stay that until next Tuesday I will be very happy.

This weekend is going to be a busy weekend. My daughter Clara is in the Marching Band. They have a football game tonight. Oh, it is perfect football weather in Missouri. It is going to be low 70s today, so tonight it will be nice, cool and crisp! Tomorrow she has her first Marching Band competition. It will be an all day thing. I was in the Marching Band when I was in high school so I am really looking forward to seeing all the bands.

I am proud of Clara. In the spring we did that biggest loser program at our community center and she was 216. She has been so busy in high school and marching band and I have noticed that she is just not eating as much. She told me the other day that she was 208 and was very happy about that. I told her she was doing it perfectly, nice and slow. I sure wish I would have been able to do it that way when I was in high school. I was always on a diet and wanted to lose it fast.......that did not work out so well. I am so glad she has been able to learn from my past experiences and not repeat my dieting mistakes. I am so happy with the relationship I have with my daughters!

Sunday is the last super long run before the half marathon! 13 miles and again we are going to have the best weather for running.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

It's is so nice to have that kind of relationship with your kids...
