Last year I was 6 pounds lighter when we went to France. Eek! I gained 2 lbs. on that vacation last June.
This year I was hoping not to gain more than 2 lbs but I feel like I've been struggling with injuries, mentally frazzled, and just general lack of purpose and focus over the last few months. My plan was to start another program such as P90X, INSANITY, or a hybrid of some sort upon return.
So I started with a 'family weigh in' after we got the dogs this morning. Actually 'Cubbydaddy' said he'd do his weigh in after our walk. I say that's cheating b/c you'll lose some water weight always in this heat. He's yet to do his and I won't bug him over it
Here's the report...
Cubbymamma 121.5 vacation weight gain 1.5lbs. I consider this a success.
Cubby 18.5 don't know what pre-vacation weight was.
Should be closer to 16 - 17lbs
Oscar 25.5 oooh goodness, this is high. Oscar looks like a
sausage. In fact, I think he gained as much as I
did. We have been trying to get him to 22-23lbs
with no luck the last few months.
Cubbydaddy unrecorded. self report is estimating 5-7lb weight gain. Gosh that's a lot for a week and I think he's probably wrong. But he's going on...'gut instinct'. hahah! Truly, he said he's going by how his gut looks. It looks like he ate well.
Interesting thing on this trip was one of the ladies had also worked with a professional organizer. Longer ago than last year, but she knew the lady I worked with last summer and we talked about our abysmal failures at home organization. But it was nice to meet someone in the same boat and hear she had trouble holding it up. I told I would email her weekly for accountability if we wanted to start again.
I have some new goals to set.....I would like to start a new round of exercise and think that it's time to pull out the whole INSANITY box and do another round straight through. It helped me over the hump last time when I needed to kick start my exercise routine. I'm hoping it will not aggravate the elbow and Achilles problems I've been having through and since 'X2'.
Then I saw the Ultimate Yogi DVD set giveaway and OOOh do I need to win that! Do I wait until I win to start, or do I just suck it up and order it now? I would love to try it out and love to hear if anyone's got some feedback on it. I'm checking the message boards when I get done!!
so FIT test for INSANITY today! I'm going to toss my old ones if I find them, and I'M NOT TAKING PICTURES!!!
OH HOLY COW! it's 135pm and the doorbell just rang..HE ORDERED PIZZA HUT.
AGGGGG! I haven't even done the FIT TEST YET.
