Well, here I am back home and did I do what I had planned to do on my vacation? Let's see:
Eat well: I tried, I really tried. And I didn't do too badly but not as well as I had hoped, especially in the fruit and veggie department. At least this time I didn't go for a total pig-out on German bread, cheeses and lunch meats but my clothes do fit a little tighter than before. From past experience I know a fair bit of this is fluid.
Exercise whenever possible: We lived on the 6th floor and I did take the stairs a few times. I also walked every day. I only went swimming once, though, and couldn't find a gym that accepted drop-ins.
Relax and enjoy: Mostly, although being the only bilingual person in my family put a tad of a strain on me for being the interpreter and tour guide. But on the whole I did pretty well there.
So I've slipped a little but I've still got this week off work; a perfect time to get back into my routine. I've started tracking everything again and my first karate class is tonight.
Marley had the greatest time of all - our house sitter let him lie on the couch and she took him out to play dates with her mother's dog, in addition to daily walks and trips to the dog park. He seems to be happy we're back, but I bet he wishes Kristina were still here too.
