Hey gang! -1 lb this week but I'm struggling again. Emotional and physical setbacks have my carb control on the back burner lol. I also managed to sprain the muscles in the lumbar region of my back :( I only got in 1.5 miles of walking at a track tonight. Blood labs and Dr visit next week...
Been doing a Disney sing along with Pandora all morning, neighbor comes over and asks what I'm watching that has a bunch of Disney songs, I told her I was singing with Pandora. Her little girl kept telling her Belle and Ariel were next door. :)
In a nostalgic mood, thinking about CPG and its upcoming closure, I realized I never got my wish to dance with someone to Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade. Loved seeing the pics from tonight! Wish I could make it next week :(

I went to a Sprouts store while I was in so cal and got lots of healthy snacks and meal replacements so I don't have an excuse to eat crappy. Hope everyone is.well!!
Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

To watch a short biography of Walts life:
Walt and Lillian Disney with unnamed friend, London, 1935.
Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
