Thanks be, no rain! I started this retreat day with a 15 min resistance band workout, followed by a 35 min brisk walk to the Hillsborough River bridge and back. The bridge has been closed for renovation, and I wanted to see how it was progressing.
No internet connection in my room--but the trade-off is the room itself, one of the largest with a bathtub. I have a massage scheduled for this afternoon. Anyway, I'll post as I can, starting with
358 breakfast. That's two meals here so far within range, a major accomplishment. Now if I can keep this up....
363 lunch. I can't weigh and measure, but I'm estimating the best I can. So far, so good. Had a lentil burger and skipped the cookies.
192 snack #1
250 dinner. Ate light, planning to have soy ice cream this evening
119 snack #2
Total - 1282, or something close to it. I ate a light dinner anticipating soy ice cream, which wasn't available after all. :-( I had a mango frozen dessert instead. I was disappointed. However, today's total is pretty amazing; I don't think I've ever managed to eat "light" here. Even if I was off on some of my estimating, it was still a good day.

Hurrying around getting things done before going out of town for weekend women's retreat, returning Monday afternoon. The Franciscan Center of Tampa Bay has great food and lots of it. It's always a challenge not to overindulge. I'm bringing some of my own food for healthy snacks and meal substitutes if I need it. I'm also taking along a pilates book and resistance bands. If it's not raining, I'll walk along the Hillsborough River and around the neighborhood.
Success so far today--unexpected lunch out with mother and sister. I had
half of a tuna salad pita
water with lemon
for about 466 cal - not bad!
I don't know what dinner tonight will be, so I'll list what I've done so far today and do my best to stay within range this evening.
911 total with up to 639 for the rest of the day. That should give me enough cal for a reasonable dinner and maybe a bedtime snack.
Great exercise today - SP video, yardwork, walk, house cleaning.
Later...about 300 cal dinner and 200 cal snack. I did it! I even bypassed the homemade baklava for dessert. I know I could have eaten just a part of the large portion, BUT...eating just a little was unlikely; better to look the other way and allow for a very small glass of wine.
Managing three meals here tomorrow will be challenging, but I'm off to a good start. That wasn't the last baklava I'll ever see. Off to bed.

Whew! In spite of last night's insomnia, I got a lot done today and plenty of exercise. Big accomplishment: I got all the way through a pilates video and didn't have to substitute anything. Granted, I took the easier options when there were options, but I did it! I can really feel a difference since I stepped up my workouts. Now if only my scale would get the message....
203 snack #2

I don't remember where I found this, but I thought it was a hoot!
"I decided to take an aerobics class. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over."

Day 31 was very busy, but productive. I had business to do with my mother-in-law's estate, and things are looking good about the sale of her house. But it meant more eating on the run at odd times and not keeping track very well. I was grateful that I'd gotten in my workout early in the day. I spent the evening at a very interesting dream workshop.
Day 30 - I'm really pleased with myself today. I've been doing the Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Challenge, and my video was a short and easy resistance band workout. I added a 20 min cardio sculpt video for more cal burning. This one was hard, though do-able with a few modifications, but it sure went on and on. MORE? Yes, because when I finally got to the end, I noticed it ran for 28 min and 30 sec, which in my book is a lot closer to 30 min than 20 as listed. The good part--I could do it!
