I've been on spring break, which meant a trip to see friends and family in my hometown. While I was there I ate a lot of restaurant food and did a little walking, but I definitely didn't stick to my healthiest habits. On the plus side, there's an amazing, cheap seamstress in my hometown who took in SEVEN pairs of pants for me (including two I bought as "goal pants" and then got too small to wear, so I've never worn them!). Total spring wardrobe refresher, and for less than the cost of ONE new pair of pants!
Tomorrow brings April, and a new commitment to Sparking. It will be exactly three months until my summer holiday, and I want to hit the beaches of Europe looking HOT! I also want to be strong enough to carry my big-ass backpack, and I want to have enough stamina to do crazy things like hike mountains in flip-flops and swim to islands that I can just barely see off in the distance (only to find out they're actually flocks of pelicans...)! So, it's back to 1200 to 1550 calories, back to doing workout videos in my condo, back to tracking food and fitness, and, sadly, back to not eating ice cream straight from the tub (well, I'll start that last one when I'm done with my Oreo ice cream... hey, it was on sale!).
