A decent amount of walking around Busch Gardens Williamsburg with my family which they call Busch Gardens Europe.

Kind of weird that Busch Gardens Europe is in Williamsburg. I used to love going to Busch Gardens for the free beer samples. Do they still do that?

I may have missed it, I know they do that at Sea World and looked for it at Busch Gardens but no luck.

Oddly enough I've had 2 different conversations with random people lately when I would say I'm coming from Busch Gardens they would respond "Busch Gardens New Jersey?"

Weird.

All told I probably walked over 4 miles today with the beach and then having to park so far away from the fireworks here in Charleston. 2 miles of it I was carrying a semi-sick 4 year old.

Weight has been crazy...so it looks like it wasn't just a fluke that one day, between leaving Leonard Wood and getting home...I've lost almost 10 pounds. What has changed is I'm no longer eating that Army food and I'm IFing usually at least 5 days out of a week. The weird thing is I've been barely working out at all since I've been home maybe 1-3 times a week max, while at Leonard Wood I was doing PT and lifting. Weird.

I guess you are proving out the old adage that weight loss is 90 percent diet.

Seriously. And I also realized why I feel so freaking weak...I'm kind of slow that way. Today I measured in at 179....which I don't think I have hit in...before my college days? I've dropped almost 12 pounds in less than a month. ADUH.
