Overdue for Some R&R

Sunday, August 18, 2013

There are 135 days left in the year. I've almost reached the limit on the amount of vacation I can earn at work, so I need to use it or lose it. I'm looking at taking a day off here and there because I don't have anything planned. Maybe I should take some tome off and run a little boot camp for myself, a health focused sabbatical.

I never thought I'd max out my vacation. My co-worker said the same thing. She just returned from Thailand and is already planning her next vacation. Since my husband is disabled, we don't take vacations like that. We tend to spend money on things, rather than experiences. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I like the idea of a get away, but the reality is always more complicated.

My mother in law is visiting in October, so we'll have to figure out some outings while she's here. The weather will be questionable and I hope we can come up with more to do than go out to eat.

Oh, I had my annual sleep doctor visit last week. He was very positive this time and didn't even mention my weight, so I did. I told him I was disappointed with my progress this past year. He commended me for keeping off all that I lost and not gaining. He also reminded me that typical, successful weight loss is not a steep downward curve. It's hills and valleys, which immediately reminded me of my weightloss graph. I laughed and said, "I'm on the right track then!" It was an encouraging meeting.

    Maybe schedule a spa day for yourself. That always makes me feel like I've been on vacation.

    Any time away from the office is good for you, productivity changes when you take a break.

I agree with the Doc, weight loss isn't linear, but keep focused.
