Ok today was weigh in day and I knew what was coming! So I did not get upset I told myself if you do the crime you pay the time! m So the results are what I expected but I have to confess that this has been the best summer vacation and time I have had in a long, long, long time.
So now I am back home, back at work and today when I walked into the gym the equipment and machines were happy to see me! m They were all wondering where I was hiding!
So yes I am back on the horse and ready to get serious again. I know it was so easy to put on the weight - let's see if I can make it easy to take off or at least I will try my hardest!!!
Well reality is setting in! I am back home from my in-laws and what a week that was! I think I ate my way to patience! So I know the scale will be terrible but I have to face the music!
My in-laws, I love them, but by the first day they have worn you down! They are like little bickering kids and no matter what you do it is wrong! The whole week was cleaning, taking them to appointments, grocery shopping, etc. Then to make matters worse we had constant rain the whole time! Oh! Well what can you do! I just offered it up as a sacrifice and then I ate, and ate, ate delicious Latin food. m
I was able to meet up with my sister that lives in the Fort Lauderdale area and we had one nice sister day together - so once again we ate and cause we had not seen each other all year!
So now I am on my way to work - setting up my new 2nd grade classroom before the start of school in 2 weeks. I hope to get myself back in the swing of my exercise and tracking so that I can get back on the right track! m
Today of all day is my sparversary and I had hoped to be at my goal weight but I will take this as a new beginning! m
Well I have been pretty busy since I got back home - but I have to say I do feel so relax and I am so happy I took the time for me because I needed to recharge my battery!
I have been spending time with mom at the nursing home because once I get back to work it gets harder and this has been so great! She still has a hard time remembering but I give her lots of love and she loves that!!
I have also been trying to get some work done around the house! Not fun but it needs to be done! So I am tackling one project at a time! I am also trying to get together some things for my oldest son that is getting into a new apartment in August so I am cleaning my kitchen cabinets to give him things he could use! Trying to cut down on expenses! My house is full of his things from the old apartment until move in day on August 1 - so I am ready for this to happen!
I am also trying to get in all my doctor appointments and just do things that need to be done! Sometimes it just surprises me to see how much stuff, paperwork, calls, etc. things we do everyday!
On Friday my DH and I will be going to Miami to do our monthly visit to the in-laws. This means that we will be cleaning, cooking, shopping, organizing and trying to entertain them for a few days! This is a little hard because the are so set in their ways that it is there way or no way! However, I do it with love and try to leave things in a better way then when I get there!
I am also proud to report that I am faithfully hitting the gym everyday and work hard! Even thought I don't see any m results yet - I feel great!!!
I will not be able to do much exercise in Miami but I will try to at least walk and I won't have any internet access so I might not be able to log in but I will make up for it when I get back home!
Well I am back home from California - a wonderful trip with my husband and we met up with some friends that took us to Sacramento, Carmel by the Sea, Monterey, etc. and wine country
My husband and I had not been on a trip with out kids in the last 22 years!! so this was really a treat for us. We celebrate our 24th anniversary and we just had a great time.
I was able to work out at the hotel while my husband worked the first week because it was partially work and then out time the second week. So I must say that althought I did gain 2.5lbs. my staying active really did help!
Because we tasted every type of food and something we don't do often we had cocktails and we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves.
So I am now back home and have to get back to reality but we will always have the memories and pictures.
Have my sons home this weekend because they missed us and it is nice to see them.
Will share some other things about this trip at a later date! Have to unpack and do lots of laundry!
Well we arrived on Sunday morning SF time and the first thing was the weather change! It was sunny and cool and when we wentdown to Fisherman's wharf it was windy and wonderful!!!
I am so happy to be here and boy did I get m,y walking in yesterday. We walked, walked, walked and walked that by the time we made it back to the hotel at 6pm West coast time and 9pm East coast I was completely exhausted and happy!
This morning woke up 5am and went straight to the gym mmmm Then breakfast with my DH before he left for work (because this is a work week for him) Then next week willbe his off time!!
So today I will do some reading, swimming and pampering of myself! After all I think I deserve it and it is my anniversary - we celebrate yesterday but tonight a nice dinner
