Ocean Visit: Walked the Beach, Ate Out, Only 3 lbs. Up! (pictures)
Sunday, July 29, 2018
I just spent a week at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire with about half of my family. We had so much fun. It's a trip we do every summer and we look forward to it all year. We each have our own condominium and certain activities we do, too.
Here we are on our way. I rode with one of my DDs.
It rained on Sunday so we decided to go to the Kittery Outlet stores in Maine.That's me and my granddaughter. I didn't buy much except for the delicious fudge, chocolate walnut, maple walnut, and raspberry cheesecake. I actually threw out a piece and a half at the end of the week. Congrats to me.
Monday and Tuesday were beach walking days. I love to walk the beach and collect pretty rocks. I have a giant collection of them now.
Wednesday the kids played on the beach and had fun. The grandgirls were mermaids.
Another daughter and son-in-law took me out to lunch.
We ate out about half the time. I tried to share some meals and pick ones not to heavy. However there were many delicious snacks and we went out for ice cream a couple of time. So when we got home last night, I was afraid to get on the scale but I did! Only three lbs. up. Thank goodness. I think I can get down that by Saturday for my Challenge. I was very careful eating today and surprise I have had no desire for sweets since I got home last night. I only want healthy food. (We'll see how long that lasts.)
At the end of the trip we always take a group picture of the whole clan. Here is our picture from this year:
Needless to say it was a wonderful week and a fun time with family.
