The wedding has come and gone now, and we are in let-down mode. Travel day ahead, and then getting back to my normal life.
I was successful with food and exercise for most of the trip. Friday and Saturday I was unable to get my walk in, and had little control over my food, but kept the portions to a reasonable level. Saturday I actually think I got my exercise in because I was constantly in motion with the final prep and getting the bride ready and then the reception itself--I got out on the dance floor a few times and tried not to just sit at my table the rest of the time.
Sunday was my disaster day--I couldn't walk--literally! I have blisters on my feet so just kept them up all day to heal. But I was here with a lot of leftover wedding cake...breakfast, lunch and dinner--and we had burgers and fries for dinner! Today I am going to be better. I have vowed not to have any cake, and I have planned my food, although I still need to track it. Running around the airports will be my exercise!
I am so sad to leave my daughter today bcause I have no idea when I will be able to see her again. But she is married to her love, who is a terrific young man. Sigh......
