Breaking the silence...for a day

Yeah, it has been a few weeks since posting here at Out of My Hat.

I am not ready to drop out of the blogosphere just yet, but I have definitely found other things to occupy my time. I haven't even been keeping up with reading the blogs that I have normally kept up with.

I have been keeping up with the exercise and healthy eating. Documenting meals and keeping track of calories has helped to keep the weight coming off. I have decided that I'm going to be less diligent about the documenting and counting calories while on vacation. I know that the first few days will be difficult to get in a little exercise, but will try for a little something each day.

I'm counting on good habits formed over the past months to keep me on track. I don't plan on over-indulging in anything and I do plan to eat healthy foods. I even expect that I may put on a couple of pounds in the coming week--no big deal. I should still come in at minus more than 50 pounds for the year ending May 31.

This weekend we will celebrate my daughter's graduation from Columbia College. We are very proud of her and wish her the best in tackling life as a new college graduate. She recently took the FAA's AT-SAT and is waiting to hear if she will get a date to attend the FAA Air Traffic Academy in Oklahoma City. I would be very happy to see her begin a career in ATC as I am ending my own. Hannah was only weeks old when I attended the Academy.

Good luck, baby!

Perhaps there will be a few pictorial posts in the coming days or a few quick lines during my time off of work...perhaps not.

Be well.

Very best wishes to Hannah on her career choice.

And congratulations to you, John, on losing 50 pounds.

Glad to read that you're still around.
