Dropped off the face of the earth, but back now

Monday, December 02, 2013

Good grief. Been gone since August this time around. I wish I could say that after all this time, and weight lost, I don't NEED Spark People, but uh, that is not the case at all.

Went on my Caribbean vacation, and it was sooooooo wonderful. Had a great time lounging, hanging with my BFF, and seeing the ocean for the first time.

Then I came home and dealt with a whole sh!tstorm of stress at work, in zumba, and at home. And now I'm sitting here feeling really annoyed with myself for letting myself go the past 3 months!!!! Been eating gluten like there's no tomorrow, and paying for it BIG TIME with aching joints. Haven't run since August. In fact, my husband washed my car when I was on vaca, and didn't know to remove my 13.1 magnet, so it got washed off, and honestly I feel that is just reward for my lack of consistency. Ugh.

But onward. I have no idea what my weight is; though I do see that prior to my vacation I was back up to 157. Riiight. After this carb/sodium/sugar laden weekend I'd have to guess I'm back around 165. NOT COOL. Not cool at all.

Anywho, back to tracking today, and ABSOLUTELY NO GLUTEN until December 24, when I will allow myself a little cheating then STOP again December 26. Bahamas trip is in 98 days and it's gonna go by in a blink.

A few random Caribbean pics:

(seriously, I'm glad to be back because Spark will at least keep me from AVOIDING the fact I'm GAINING like there's no tomorrow! I can tell my clothes fit worse, and I'm not digging that at all)

    the days I don't track my food, I tend to over do it. So, I guess I need to be on here every day. I think it helps all of us stay accountable. Glad your back!

    I've been here for over six years and if I didn't stay at it, I'd be about 314#.

    Sooooooooooooooooo glad to see you!!! I miss you when you aren't around. I don't have many people I can talk to about gluten. I have been cheating too and paying for it. When I talk to people here about avoiding gluten they act like I'm some sort of trendy kook. Thank God my doctor is not one of them and he decided he is sure I have celiac disease and not sensitivity and I need no gluten and less carbs as well so I'm not even supposed to have the frankenlowcarb foods.

    Loved your pictures. They look so restful. I love the ocean.

    I've been here for almost 7 years and still enjoy the community immensely. I'm at goal and maintaining - SparkPeople absolutely gets the credit for this. My SparkFriends are wonderful.
    Welcome back! Stick around...
