No Mini-Vaca *sniff*

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Well, the trip to Birch Bay didn't work out. I would have had to drive all the way (instead of half the distance and carpool the rest) and I don't trust my car hours away from the nearest mechanic (it's over-due for it's 60k check-up and making an intermittent grrrrrrr noise) so I bailed. I'm out a good chunk of change as I'd already paid for my spot, but I would have ended up spending even more anyway, probably close to $100 just on gas.

I'm not exactly thrilled about it, but I'm trying to see the positive. Had I gone, I probably would have eaten and drank myself right back to the start of this latest journey to regain my health and fitness.

Also I'm going to be on the road 3 days next week for work; 2 nights in a hotel, and lots of driving. I still have a lot of prep to do at work, so instead of taking today and the rest of this week and Monday off, I'll go into work on Friday and Monday. Maybe I'll even go in tomorrow. We'll see. My eyes pop open every morning at the same time whether the alarm goes off or not...LOL!

So I began Phase 2 of South Beach with WAY too much wine, and some nachos my husband made (chips, fat-free refried beans, jalapenos, tomato, cheese and sour cream). It was SO good! Way over did it on the wine though, I woke up with my head pounding. Ugh. Now I remember why I don't drink like that anymore! LOL

Have had a super good day today...nothing yet that isn't Phase 1...but I'm going to have some sugar-free jello mixed with cottage cheese later! Yummmmmmm.
