Back from Peru (Pix)

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Hola! I'm back from Peru. We had a wonderful trip visiting my husband's family and going to Machu Picchu. It was gorgeous down there and warm :)

I think I lost weight but I don't know how much. The food did not agree with me while I was there and spent most of the two weeks living off of Nature Valley bars and Gatorade. You can tell from some of the pictures that I'm bloated from this diet, but it was necessary. I'm still trying to get my digestive system back to normal working order and until it is I'm going to take it easy on the phsyical training.

Hubby and I have been super stressed since we've been home. We arrived Saturday night and the very next morning we had to orchestrate a move from our house to my dad's. On top of that our 10 month old has been very confussed about things which makes him fussy. I left the house for a few hours on Sunday and he cried the whole time I was gone. There was nothing hubby could do to console him. This made for a very grumpy daddy when I got home and created incredible tension.

But things are starting to settle down a little. We go to settlement on our house next week hopefully. In the meantime we're trying to figure out where we want to land. We definitely don't want to stay with my dad for too long. As much as I love him, his house is just a zoo.

My friend, Ben challenged me to do a burpee at the summit of Machu Picchu. This was my photographic evidence :)

    Talk about an inspirational setting to do a burpee in! It almost convinces me to do one now but I think I will resist the urge. Don't worry things will settle down and unfold as they should. It just takes some time to get back to the regular routine of life. Sorry about your tummy troubles but on the up side maybe you did lose some weight and that's pretty hard to do on a trip. I am really worrying about packing on pounds on my upcoming cruise to Hawaii. It's going to take a lot of willpower! Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures. emoticon
