Count Those Flags!

Yep....still no batteries.  No batteries = No weigh in...sorry folks!  Maybe later today.

Yesterday, I accomplished one of my long term goals and a goal that was slated for later this summer.  I went with the family to Six Flags.  I suppose that going there does not a goal meet, however...I did ride with my kids and not just the Colossus Ferris Wheel and Train.  I rode pretty much everything Autumn wanted to (that Jim would stay behind with Erica for)!  It had been over 12 years and I have learned that I am WAAAAAY more afraid of a lot of things than I was 12 years ago. 

This made me realize that I am ahead of all my major non scale victories by about a month this year!  I* completed a 5k in May and now this which wasn't even supposed to happen until my birthday!

Still no job.  Still no prospects of a job.  I am praying that something will become clear to me as I am starting to go a little stir crazy at home and I feel like a lot of LIFE is being wasted here. 

The heat in the STL is going a little crazy this week, but the pool is open so that got me moving on Friday. Then a practice walk/run for the Komen with my nephew yesterday netted me an early morning mile (blister concerns for him prompted and early end to our walk).  Spent the entire afternoon running around Six Flags in practically 100 degree heat...I'd say it's been an active weekend.  Today will start off with church and then my sister may be bringing her kids over to swim. 

No complaints though.  I am still very blessed.  A roof over my head, food on my table, the ability to walk!  Life is good!


  1. It sounds like you had one hell of a kick-ass weekend, chica! Congrats on your progress. =)

    Do you have any marketable skills you could do freelancing with? It might help with the stir crazy feelings until you can get a job.

    Much love, Christie! <3

  2. Great NSV! You were able to go to Six Flags and have fun. That's a GREAT joy. :)

    I'm praying for you and a job prospect. I know how hard it is out there...looking for things...hearing back from people. I wish you THE best of luck and am sending tons of positive vibes your way. :)

  3. Hey,
    I'm in the STL area as well. YAY another MO blogger!
    I havn't been to six flags since I got married, it's been 7 years, and I love parks, I just can't justify the cash for the entrance fee and driving with gas being so expensive. Perhaps when the kids get bigger...
    It's awesome that you are ahead on your non-scale goals, those have always been the more important ones to me. They are the true measure of how far I've come. I did a 10K at the begining of May and I had never done an event like that in my life. Way to go!

  4. I wondered if you were there!!! Did you start with the runners? I crossed the finish line at 1:29:something--what time did you go through?

    Wasnt it insane??
