Hey Peeps! I missed you! Trying to catch up with everyone but will take a few days. I have pictures posted of the weekend on my facebook. Here is a link.
Had a fabulous weekend. Drove to Medford, Oregon early thursday am (6 hours away) and met up with our friends who flew in from Utah and headed to the race track. The weather was gorgeous (about 87 degreees). Saw lots of friends and had a few drinks and a fairly early night.
The next morning we went on a Jet Boat ride through Hellgate canyon on the Rogue River which was awesome!! We were served a great lunch in a beautiful place then went back to the track for a night of racing and more drinking. Still made it into bed by 1 am.
The next day was HOT. Almost 100 and this was the final night of racing. One of the guys who has raced in our group died a few weeks ago (suicide) and his brother was there with the race car. They did a memorial lap which was very touching and emotional and on to the racing which was fun and very exciting.
MORE drinks (and yes, I was the VIP of silliness that night. I know. You are shocked!) Hit the bed about 2:30 and got up sunday, had breakfast and headed home.
Things that went right:
I walked a fair amount
I sweated a lot
I got lots of compliments, bordering on embarrasing
I drank alot of water
Things that went wrong:
I ate like crap
Too much sodium (chips, nuts,hot dogs,bacon)
Late night eating
Cookies and cake daily
I am up 8 pounds ( I know it will come off fast but still, kinda shocking)
My back hurts
I'm starving this morning
SO I guess when I look at it, was it worth it? Yes cause I was living my life BUT I could have done a LOT better (and I usually do but not this time).
It made me realize how much better I like how I live NOW (cause that was the way I used to live and I cant do it anymore).
I am happy to be home, cooking my own food, walking with my dog, having a routine and being more in control of my self and my environment.
Back to reality. But I am happy to be here.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
