Back from vacay with a new resolve:
I can succeed and have planned my meals for breakfast and lunch for the week, and having planned the types of food I'll have for dinner for the week. Woo hoo. It is doable --- and I know I can handle the 10,000 steps per day. ON vacay, we walked on average, 14,000 steps per day. I think we came close to 20,000 steps at Busch Gardens. Of all days to forget my pedometer, but I did good otherwise. My eating was not in check, but I gave myself that leeway.
Vacay was good except for breaking out in hives the second to last day. Good thing I keep cortisone handy and was able to stop the itch quickly. Still not sure what it was, possibly even heat rash.
Had a good time, but glad to be back home, where I feel more in control of my life, for many reasons...did not get to the pool, but managed quite well otherwise. I did tons of walking!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!

I went to a farmer's market and was talking to a student/staff member of mine. I don't even recall the topic of conversation though it may have been job related. Another girl standing nearby approached and asked, "Are you .....?" Um, yes.
We had been corresponding by email and I have been helping her on a project.
I was so surprised that in a workforce of thousands I could be singled out and recognized.
Ever the inquisitor, I asked, "How did you know it was me?" She stammered some story about the director bringing her around to meet people, but she didn't think I was in that day,....and then we both changed the subject.
Here's where OM (Old Mickeymax) would have reeled: She's gigantic with glasses and brown hair as if some other colleagues were describing me. Or it could have been she has a really loud laugh (totally true), loves students, and likes sweater. Possible --- or more likely the scenario - googled me or looked me up through our own web page - all viable.
I don't want to be associated any more with the #1 choice.
The truth is I do feel gigantic. I am done with feeling out of place. I want to run, swim, bike my way to better health. In the past I walked off 70 pounds and I am completely capable of doing it again! Who's with me?!!!!!! WOO HOO!
