Monday Jorge invited me down to San Diego for a BFC whirlwind day. I was able to spend the day with two people I have featured here on the blog, Jessica and Anthony. I had never met Anthony in person, and I was really looking forward to it. I have made a great friend in him. Jessica has lost 63 lbs and has just graduated from high school and Anthony has lost 210 lbs. Yes, that is what he LOST. Both are so inspiring and if you have a young person in your life who is looking lose weight, their stories are great. So two very motivating people to spend the day with, right?
I had my hair and makeup done and professional photos taken for the Belly Fat Cure Fast Track book that comes out at the end of the year. Jorge is putting the three of us on the back cover of the book, which is a really neat opportunity. It was fun having people ooh and aah over me for a few hours, I won't lie. But I really loved spending time with Jessica, Anthony, Oliver and Robbie (who work for Jorge). Being surrounded by people with the same goals and interests is so easy.
When my family picked me up at the airport I still had all the makeup on and the kids and Husband declared they didn't recognize me. I now know, pancake really settles in your wrinkles and lines! The kids and I head out for a long vacation this week to spend time with my family in Oklahoma. They are going to fish, swim and play with cousins, which they don't get to do very often. I'm going to sit in the shade, read, and enjoy some free Grandparent provided babysitting.
How are you all doing on the July Challenge? I hope you have been able to stick with the plan and not give into cravings. I am a little worried I won't have my normal foods around and we will camping in the Ozarks (=middle of nowhere) so I hope I do okay.
