Happy Fall Y'all!!!

          It’s Fall Y’all!!! Woohoo my favorite time of year.  My kids love it too.  I love the changing of the leaves, even if we do not see much of that in Florida, I love how the temperatures outside start to come down a bit, okay once again not so much in Florida LOL but they come down a bit. I love all the colors of Autumn. Orange is my favorite color. Pumpkin spice and everything nice are abundant in my home LOL We have already put up all our harvest decorations inside.  I like to decorate with cute and colorful leaves and pumpkins.  Lots of orange, red, yellow, and golden brown found inside right now. Outside is my son’s domain LOL he likes spooky.  So, we have spiders, snakes, ghosts, bats, and on the porch are Fred and Ginger our life size skeletons.  This year we have then dressed up as the king and queen of Halloween LOL. We have also constructed a spooky archway for trick or treaters to walk through to get candy.  My son and the two pups are dressing up as mummies LOL my daughter is a moth. I am not sure what I will end up as. 

          I have already been scouting places for us to go and have fun.  I know of a corn maze so far that is a must. Scott’s Maze Adventures looks like a lot of fun.  There is also the Claremont Harvest Festival, Kissimmee’s Boo on Broadway, and Old Town Thriller nights.  This past weekend we went to SeaWorld’s Halloween Spooktacular, it was lots of fun, but so very hot. 

                The only thing I am worried about is trying to stay within my Noom calories during this prime baking season.  My daughter and I love baking autumn treats, so this will be huge challenge.  Shoot I have even purchased all sorts of baking supplies already in anticipation of baking LOL I just have to be mindful to not overindulge.  I have been doing very well, I am down thirty pounds now. That still blows my mind. Noom is getting a bit tedious, but I am sticking with it.  I liked it better in the beginning when it talked about calories and nutrition more.  Now it is mainly psych tricks.  Those are good, but not really what I am looking for.  I was more diet hacks LOL.  I also am getting a bit lost in the message boards.  What started out as just a group of people right where I was at in the program, has changed. Three times now we have been merged with other groups.  It has made keeping it personal very hard.  I do not recognize most posters in there. They should have kept it as a small group. My personal coach has also changed three times. I never did like that aspect of the program. Those messages always came across as robotic.  I guess I am just in a phase LOL honeymoon is over and now the real work begins.  I must force myself to keep using the program LOL logically I know it is how I am succeeding, but it is annoying LOL I guess I just need to do what I did in the beginning and just accept it and do what they say LOL that is when it really worked for me.

          Okay off to get my morning workout in.   Then it is time to go find some more pumpkin treats LOL Aldi’s has some yummy pumpkin spice whipped cream which is delicious and only 15 calories a serving. Tastes just like fluffy pumpkin pie.  They also have mums advertised for $3.99 which are my daughter’s favorite flower. Disney Springs’ Spice and Tea Exchange is also calling out to me with their seasonal teas LOL.   Only 26 days to go until my Autumn vacation where we really amp up the Fall Fun. I always take the last two weeks off so that my kids and I can relax and enjoy all the seasonal activities like corn mazes, pumpkin patches, fall festivals, and trick or treating.  It is always so much fun.
