Today I am trying to get back into the grind of daily life. It isn't easy when you just had an amazingly relaxing vacation! I managed to get back down to 152 pounds and that makes me happy. I am pretty sure it was all water weight. I drank on the beach, but, my guess is that it is hard to keep up the appropriate water requirements for a place like the beach. I stayed in the shade of my umbrella a lot. I drank my 52 oz Bubba jug of water every morning while sitting under said umbrella. I stuck to water during the rest of the day. I guess it wasn't going to happen!
I also went for my first jog/walk in about 2 months. Swim team took the routine right out of me! and then I didn't even try while on vacation. I will lose another 2 pounds and be right back to where I was before swim team and vacation.
All in all, I am happy with my progress, and I am not sweating the setback (After the initial "Oh my goodness!" shock of seeing the scale go up). I hope that this helps you realize that it is ok to take the vacation, live a LITTLE, and then plug back into the program when you get back! 2 pounds is nothing in the grand scheme of life. Not that I won't try to lose more, I just want to enjoy the journey and be happy with myself.
It will come eventually!
Any one up to trying Dr. Oz's Real Age diet that is high in fiber to help you lose the visceral fat in the abdomen? I am starting that next week. I will post a blog with what I am eating if you want to join me. We can compare notes. I plan on measuring my waist in 2 places before and after. Let me know if you want to try it to!
Blog later friends
