Roller coaster weight and vacation plans

Saturday, July 27, 2013

For some reason, lately, I've been gaining and losing the same 3-5 pounds. I just don't understand it. I know it will be going up next week when I go on vacation. I consider vacation to be from stress, work, home, diet, etc. It's the one time when I eat what I want to eat and don't care about the consequences. I'm going to be active, so I'll be working it off. We leave Thursday 8/1 and come back Tuesday 8/6. Almost a full week!

We're going on our annual camping trip to Winter Island in Salem, MA. We usually demonstrate at the Maritime Festival and turn it into a vacation. This will be the first year that we aren't demonstrating. The sequester has dried up a lot of the funds for the festival, so we lost out for this year. Hopefully the government can get it's act together (hahaha) and it will be back to "normal".

We camp in a tent and have our favorite site this year. We are so close to the ocean that we can hear the waves from our site. It's a well-shaded area just a few sites away from the bath house. I've found some hiking trails that I want to try this year. I also got some coupons for some restaurants - even some we've never been too. We just have to pray for good weather. Last year we got a lot of rain storms - which isn't so much fun when you're camping in a tent. This year we're prepared - we bought rain suits!

I know I've been pretty sporadic on here lately, but it's going to get worse before it gets better. Please bear with me! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!
