Back from vacation and swearing off sweets

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

So, I haven't been blogging much this month, mostly because I haven't been stressing out much...vacation will do that when it works like it should! It was a wonderful time, visited a old friend on Cape Cod who is a elementary PE teacher and used to be a runner for Nike. She is really fast, even at 55! We had an active week of running (she runs really slow for me!), biking and kayaking, and of course, the beach. So awesome, I didn't think about work all week long.

Even with all that exercise I managed to gain a couple pounds, I guess that's what happens when you eat ice cream every day. Who knew? emoticon

All kidding aside, it was a nice break and now I'm ready to get back on track. I decided to stop eating sweets until after Labor Day as they've become a bit of habit lately...I need a reset. So, I've been good all week on calories, but so busy that I'm going to have to push it to get all my exercise in.

I feel pretty good, getting myself organized and on track in other ways too. I did a budget before I went on vacation and I think I am sticking to it pretty well. I'm going over it this weekend to make sure. I am motivated to stay on track as I have some debt that I want to get paid off so I can focus on saving and maybe retiring some day.
