Returning from Paradise


Monday, December 03, 2012



So much happened on my vacation that I couldn't have done before I restarted Sparkpeople. I scaled the many stairs of our resort with no problems. I made it to the summit of Mauna Kea to stargaze without running short of breath or hurting my heart. I swam and snorkeled and felt strong the whole time. …and I needed a belt because most of my shorts were too big.

But now I'm back, and it's been a rough weekend. Cheese? Yes, let's eat ALL the cheese, on EVERYTHING. Tracking? Pffft, tracking. Exercise? Pfffft, I'd rather not. We put up the holiday lights outside, which was kind of a pathetic excuse for a "workout" and went antiquing for several hours, but I didn't touch the elliptical.

Today, though, will be different. I've measured my meals and am tracking everything. I've got my water handy alongside my coffee at my desk. My routine is back, and with it i coming the ability to focus on my Sparkstuffs. And if I look objectively at this weekend, I was still careful with my portions... at least, relatively so. Not bad enough to knock me entirely off-course.

I'm feeling good about getting back on track, although I know my weigh-in tomorrow is going to push me a little off-course when it comes to my major goal (which, admittedly, is a little best-case-scenario). Nothing I can't bounce back from, though.

My vacation was amazing, but I am so very happy to be back in my old routine so I can keep this train a-movin'!!

    I think it's easy when you get off a schedule to go a little crazy. I know I do. I'm glad you had an amazing vacation!
