When I got back from vacation I gained 4# from going from 197 to 201. For some reason, I wasn't bothered by it. I guess I knew when I went back to the grind, I'd lose it again and some. That is what we are all about, right?
On Wednesday, my first full day back, I walked 3 miles and dropped 2# on Thursday's weigh in. I figured it was water retention. Happy to see you leave.. See-ya.
Than, on Thursday, yesterday, I did nothing. I just tracked my food and did no exercise. I was sore from the 3 mile walk [Man, it sucks that you can lose all your training over just a few days.] I did on Wednesday and I had to get my 5 page paper done for my summer class. [It's due today.] This morning I dropped another pound.
WHAT is going on?! This is so weird. I basically dropped 3# in like two days. Weird! I kinda figure my body knew it wasn't suppose to be there so it didn't get settled in.. I don't know.
Today, I am still getting settled back into the groove of things.. I am going to go work out on the .
[Oh, I forgot.. I am going to try to restrain myself from the scale this weekend. Small steps.. small steps!]

Okay, I was going to add a comment to my other blog but um, it wasn't letting me so let's try this avenue instead.
I decided my sister, the one picking me apart, isn't so bad. She is giving me $30 Itunes gift cards that she won. She doesn't have Itunes but I do! In turn I am going to make a CD.. I sure can do that!
With the Itunes gift cards, I am going to re-vamp my work out songs that I work out/walk to.
So far these are on the list to purchase...
---Rude Boy by Rhianna
---Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice
---Rehab by Rhianna
---I Pray For You by Jaron and The Long Road to Live
As you may have figured out, I listen to lots of country and some pop/punk. What are some of your favorite songs?! What are the must haves?!

I think my mini-vacation was just want I needed.. it really helped me relax about my weight loss. I think I was getting kinda burnt out so what I did these past few days was absolutely nothing! I didn't walk.. not even in the parade I was in. In fact, I let myself eat like 6 bars that day. Besides the exercise, I let myself not track my food and just enjoy myself. And, I did.
I spent some good solid time with my extended family. Even through we are close, we do not see each other that much. It was really nice. My mom's cousin's wife told me how much she was proud of me for losing so much weight. In fact, I might have sparked her! She even pointed it out to my grandma who when I was little told me that I need to lose weight but than shove food down our throats. It was hard. So, it really took me back a bit when she called me skinny.. really!? Me?! Especially when I have a cousin who is rather fit and could be considered skinny.. I think that might be have been a highlight for me this weekend!
On the other hand, my sister was picking my body apart. For a while, I was just taking it.. not letting it bother me. I am a strong person, inside and out. I am proud with how far I have come. But, she kept picking at me even with my other sister calling her catty. Finally, I had enough and started to stand up for myself. But my mom is like, "Quit fighting." The thing is I didn't even start it or whatever but I am getting yelled for it. *sigh* I am trying to let it go..and focus on all the lovely comments that I received this week.
With all the fun I had and relaxing with the food and exercise, I did go from 197 to 201.2. In other words, I gained 3#. I decided I have not going to all crazy on working on those 3# but rather work on the getting back into the routine this week. [I think I started yesterday when I ordered a Blueberry Salad at Betty's Pie. It was a-maz-ing! Seriously.. It had blueberry vingrette! Yum!] Than, after I get settle back in, I will probably work on leaving the 200s again!
Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!

A little quick blog while on vacation.
So.. today I went into Hayward to catch up on my messages while my sister and her husband went to Grown Ups, a movie.
I was sitting outside at one of the laundry mats and a group of people my age came walking along. A girl and a guy sat across me at another table. After I asked where they are from, the guy, someone with a strong Austraila accent, how like, "How are yooou doing?" like Joe does on Friends. How can you not smile at that.. I definitely felt like I was getting hit on. It was amazing. After listening to their conversation, I guess he has a girl friend but still.. it made my day.
It made me feel sexy.. how could you not? I mean like a cute Australia is being flirty with me!
How is everyone else's weekend going?!

I think I need a vacation from losing weight.
This does not mean quitting but rather maybe relaxing a bit about it. In the last two days, I burned like 2000 calories!!! On Monday I did the elliptical for 40 minutes and walked 5 miles. Than on Tuesday I walked around on the park's trails for 2-3 hours. In other words, I have been exercising like a mad woman. But why?! I do not need to kill myself for this. I can lose weight by doing a moderate amount of exercise and watching what I eat.
In fact, I have gained a pound from yesterday to today! Lame!!! On the flip side, this month I have lost an inch on my tummy and hips.. isn't that really the goal?! To be smaller? Like who cares if you are weighing in at 200 if you can fit into a size 10. I'd like to say I am not going to care. At least I am working on not caring about the number on the scale.
The result of all that exercise? Well, I don't want to go do a single thing today. I don't want to go for a walk. I don't want to go on the elliptical. I don't even want to go to class. Well, I never want to go to class so maybe that isn't so unusual!
I have been debating on whether to go home tonight or tomorrow. I think I am gonna leave right after class. Going home will be kinda like a weight loss vacation.. I will be a more slack there than I would be here. Much of that has to do with that I have less control of what to eat. My goals are usually to maintain during that time. This time I would like to lose a pound but I don't know if that is possible.. But I do know when I come back from a home visit, I enjoy most likely my routine around here again.
I will try to check in a couple times but if it seemed like I went up and missing.. well, I kinda did. I will be gone until Monday or Tuesday! Have a great 4th of July everyone!
