So this journey is moving right a long with a few bumps and bruises. We are in the beginning stages of Phase 2, and I have to say I was a little nervous 'cause this is definitely in the "nitty gritty" of it. This is the stage we stay in until we accomplish our goals. This is of course how I was feeling until we took our amazing trip that we were so blessed with. A gift that was amazing to have shared with the rest of my "Best Life Bunch."

We had the opportunity to challenge our bodies, and it was a true test to me to see where I was and how my workouts that I had been doing at home had paid off. I am definitely not close to where I should be, but I could feel the difference in my mobility and my wind. Had I tried that a couple of months ago, it would have been a joke, so I was pretty proud of myself.

I gained so much from the trip. Without giving away too much, not only were we physically challenged, but mentally as well (which I will talk about at a later date). I am the type of person who has to take it all in and then go back and process it. Now that I am back home, I am doing a lot of processing.

As far as my bumps and bruises... On Easter I cooked a nice dinner which was within what I could eat. However, it was also my husband's birthday and I made a chocolate cake. I was trying to be really good, so I also made the bread pudding from Bob's recipes. I thought, 'They'll have cake. I'll have pudding.' Well what do you think won over the pudding? You got it: the cake. I did, however, have a small slice, drank my water and did my workout. I could hear Bob saying, 'You have to put out more than you put in.' At that moment I thought, 'I put in so I have to put out.' Taking a look at the mental part of this journey is also what is helping me to keep moving forward. That is why I know...
