Getting Back On Track
Friday, June 07, 2013
After being up for two days and being consumed by the grossness and icky feelings that go along with travelling back home from vacation, I am wiped out!
Haha I had a great time in Michigan visiting my sister! It's been years since she and I were able to have some quality time, and I loved getting to meet her fiancee and future in-laws and was glad to see that she is happy!
The time away was vacation in the purest sense. Mentally I was indulgent, relaxed, and didn't even give a thought to anything that I left here at home (really that's the true meaning of a vacation, isn't it?). The downside to that though is that I threw caution to the wind in every sense of the word. I didn't track food at all while I was there, and my sister and I roamed over having some local and not-so-healthy cuisine. Long story short - my scale says I gained 4.0 pounds.
Haha. Even though that's a huge gain, I'm not going to let myself regret anything I did, because it was vacation and I enjoyed myself (you have to accept the consequences when you make the decisions, don't you?). I'm hoping that since I haven't been off the plane six hours, a lot of the weight is water weight and my body adjusting from the travelling and the time change and the sleeping schedule and whatnot. If I'm lucky, now that I'm back home and ready to get right back on track, my body will respond positively and drop some of this (hopefully water) weight off.
Haha instead of going straight to sleep, I allowed myself a short nap before getting my spring cleaning on (that's a way to burn calories for sure!). As of right now I'm at about 1100 calories for the day, and between the exhaustion and the meal I had, I'm not really going to eat anything else before passing out for the night. As soon as I get my finances back in order (haha I as overindulgent there while on vacation, too) and get the bills and such planned for the next week, it's off to the grocery store for a bunch of fresh goodies.
Even though it is Friday night and I so rarely have those off, I'm kind of looking forward to staying in. Everyone else is out so I have the whole house to myself, and having a newly cleaned livings space and fresh laundered bed linens sounds like they'd be perfectly paired with a bubble bath and a movie/book.
Hopefully tomorrow doesn't go by too fast, because it's back to work on Sunday! I can't be too mad, though, because after six days of work it's my three day weekend! Haha I planned that out pretty perfectly, if I don't mind saying so.
Anywho, the laundry is about done so I better get back to it. Haha if I stay still too long I might pass out. Hope everyone in Sparkland is having a fabulous start to the weekend!
