aloha from maui. the scientific conference ended yesterday. today is the beginning of the coding seminar, but i don't think they will be providing meals, so i'll be a little more in control of what i eat. maybe i'll actually get a emoticon day

for sunday, emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sounds like you had a good time despite your difficulties Erika! My husband and I usually do a ton of sightseeing when we go on vacation. We prefer cities so it's mostly on foot too which can be exhausting (but still a lot of fun!) since we probably do about 10 miles a day (we walk pretty much from breakfast until dinner, usually doing lunch while walking, and then usually taking an after dinner walk too).

Vacation time! Sounds like Ryan is still enjoying, Emme is on the re-entry curve, which is where I am too. What an exhausting vacation, lots of hiking and sightseeing in Bavaria and in the Andalusia area of Spain.

I really had a tough time being overweight on the vacation. Several things I wanted to do were VERY difficult (like pulling myself up onto a paddle boat, etc.) because I am so overweight. I have got to deprioritize work a bit and spend more time on my health. VEGGIES!!!

Goal: get back below 140!!!!

Becky, thanks for your encouragement!
Emme, when I left hubby alone for a weekend last year I came back to an empty family sized box of frosted flakes cereal and an empty box of Oreos...my dad used to just buy pizza for me and him if mom was gone...so who knows what your husband ate!
Ryan, glad you're enjoying Hawaii! I don't think it would be my cup of tea (my idea of paradise is pretty much northern Michigan in winter...lots of snow (snowshoeing!), a cabin with a roaring fire, cocoa, pajamas....yeah).

To all and anyone I forgot I hope you are having a nice Monday! I'm having a sore Monday but we're having a good weather day after yesterday's heat and also it's good to be home.

My weekend was really fun but definitely need some recovery time. I spent AT LEAST six hours hiking (that's being conservative, it could've easily been eight or ten, I didn't keep track of time) plus actual LARP fighting (think something like fencing but even a little more intense). Plus moving our gear up to the cabin and back down (about a quarter mile....most of that on a steep incline). Oh not to mention the running involved in the actual game...yeah.

Today's goal: get food back in order. Didn't eat much yesterday, but it wasn't the most well balanced. Need to hit a grocery store. Not sure what DH lived on while I was gone, but there's no evidence of food in the house. emoticon

Ryan, I never want to leave Hawaii when I visit. I hope you're enjoying every minute.

Re-entry here has been hard--jetlag city. Up at 3:30 this morning, yay! Not.

Haven't posted for a couple days. Saturday: emoticon emoticon and emoticon

I hope everyone's enjoying their weekends. More soon.

ok, so today i'm going to post early so that i don't forget.

norm is off to his meetings and i sat outside having my coffee on the lanai, looking at the beautiful view. man, there is nothing like this. i really do feel like i'm in paradise! of course, i ate and drank too much at the reception last night. fortunately, the walking is balancing out the calories somewhat. do i have to go home??

thursday: emoticon emoticon emoticon

Kelly, you are doing GREAT!!!!! Don't worry about other people´s comments (though I know that's easier said than done). Enjoy your weekend away. emoticon

Ryan, I'm so glad you're enjoying yourself. Get some spa time in to come home stress-free!!! A massage on the sandy beach listening to the waves roll in......

Emme, have a safe trip home. I really enjoyed the photos you posted of Budapest. It looks like a nice place to visit. My husband studied in Romania back when Ceaușescu was in power. He has some stories to tell.....

Erika, I assume you are enjoying your trip, too.

Judy, take care of yourself so you can get back to your active lifestyle soon!! emoticon

Pauline, come back!!!!

i have my days so confused that i keep forgetting to check in. not much of a leader. emoticon

today was the first day of the conference and, as always, there was a comedian for the opening ceremony. he was fabulous. we laughed so hard our sides hurt. in the evening, the association sponsored a luau reception. it wasn't an authentic luau, but the show was fabulous. dances from all of the Polynesian islands. we really enjoyed it.

so, wednesday was emoticon emoticon emoticon

Also, a little irked at only being 0.7lbs down this week but in the great scheme of things that's not so terribly bad. I went to a birthday party on Saturday and had pizza and food from Long John Silvers on Sunday. I didn't go nuts but still more calories than usual and a butt ton of salt.

Yesterday was really annoying, Monday was only slightly less so. The heat we were having was just driving me crazy (the 90s are a bit much for Michigan and for this Michigander) and then when I took my nieces to the pool it was just so crowded....and I won't say I'm not a people person but I'm a very specific about people person and so far only one of my neighbors has qualified as a person I might talk to if we didn't live in the same complex...not that I know most of my neighbors, most are like me and hubby and keep to themselves. So the really annoying part was I was already having a less than self-confident day and a couple of the women were talking about snacks for their kids and I got roped in because of bringing snacks for my nieces and someone mentioned chocolate being the thing that wasn't good for them....dark chocolate is not bad for you in the great scheme of things. I said I eat a little dark chocolate most every day (and I do). They said something along the lines of well curvy girls have more fun... I said I've actually lost 20lbs. I'm not eating a giant bar of chocolate every day. I eat more along the lines of a Ghiridelli square...and said as much. No one really listened to me so I migrated back to my chair in the shade to spend time with my book. I'm still irked about the whole thing.

Looks like I missed posting Tuesday--a complete weather change--pouring rain! Nice change, it's starting to heat up again already.

Yes, I leave day after tomorrow--time flies.

Wednesday: got it all emoticon emoticon and emoticon . I need 600 more steps to make 10K today. Going to go out for a walk, to find some dinner, and then I have an online meeting tonight at 10. I need a drink. emoticon

OMG, Judy.....the fall from the horse???? Bless your heart....I'm sending lots of healing thoughts your way!!!!

Ryan, enjoy the tropics!!! I hope all your stress melts away.....

Emme, Budapest sounds wonderful (except for the heat). I guess you head home in a couple more days....

Kelly, enjoy your games!!

Erika, I hope you are enjoying your much deserved vacation.

Pauline, come back!!!!

I guess I'm going to have to break down and go to the doctor. I've had ear congestion for weeks that is driving me crazy. It clears up then comes back and one ear is almost completely blocked.

For Monday: free day.

Sunday: emoticon (logged about 2.5 miles, not enough); emoticon emoticon

Today, exercise in already... it was so hot today, the office isn't air conditioned and it was unbearable. We ended up moving down to the lowest floor lobby to work. About 95 and humid. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and cool down substantially. It will be a welcome change.

3 more days here. Sort of sad about that. I like it here--very livable. It's pedestrian friendly, clean, safe, and lots of things to do. People are nice, but the language is impossible.

While I'm thinking of it I wanted to mention I won't be on next weekend. I have a LARP event and for the sake of authenticity we don't use cell phones unless there's an emergency. Will be getting lots of exercise though!

Had a great day--it's 2 p.m. and already have 5 miles of walking logged. We went for a work event (video shoot) on Margit Island, then we took a boat ride down the Danube. Now I need to do a couple hours or so of work, then out to dinner tonight somewhere down on the river. It's nice to be inside my air conditioned room for a while, as it's hot and humid out there.

So: emoticon emoticon and emoticon . I should move to Europe--I live much more healthily here--less food, more walking, lots of water.

Ryan, sending you less anxiety. Hi to all--I guess I better get to it. I even ordered room service, as I don't want to be distracted by heading out and walking around to find lunch.

My mixer broke AGAIN (well this was the second one!) I guess no double loaves for the next one if I get it replaced. I felt so frustrated with it...still do a bit but working out and doing some active chores helped.

On the good side of things all the exercise stuff is getting easier (so I'm probably just getting stronger plus having almost twenty pounds less on my legs helps too).

Wednesday: emoticon emoticon emoticon

Taking a bit of an internet break today. As much as it's awesome for things like SP and just staying in touch it can be an awful drain too...both in time and in mood. I don't get to read as much or spend as much time with loved ones when I'm using it...so taking a day away other than tracking sounded like a good thing.

Things are going well here, but work is long and grueling. I fell asleep at 8 last night (then woke up from 12-2). It's 7:15 now, time to get ready and go again.

Ryan, have fun in Hawaii, my favorite place on earth!
Erika, sounds like a great trip. It's hot here in Hungary, Spain will probably be the same.

I have a free day Sunday, so I decided to take a little train trip to another town and visit a friend there. Other than that, not seeing much of this city, as there's never time! Oh well.. I have a lovely walk to work, so I get to see some things that way.

Kelly, you are awesome!!! So much energy!!! I love it. You are a breath of fresh air emoticon

I am swamped with work stuff prior to being gone for a week. You always pay for vacation in my job, both before and after, but it is worth it anyway. Turns out we will be spending time in Munich with family and then in a very small town in Spain near Granada with friends. Sounds exhausting for only a week trip, but fun!!

I miss you guys and I will be back soon. emoticon


Goal: get back below 140!!!!

I've also been taking two free days but I can just do the one. Any day that would count I'd have the six cups of water (I do my best but their water is gross to me) and exercise but not food (food does not go well at my in-laws...not badly but not well...I'm watching a one year old and helping with something every last minute pretty much and really don't get much of an opportunity to sit and track...which usually means going over for me).

Have fun Ryan! I know what you mean about shortening pants...on the rare occasion that I'm not wearing a skirt or dress (easier to deal with when you're petite and yes I even wear them in the winter...with leggings and over the knee socks) I usually have to hem my pants. I did find a pair of capris this past spring that fit me as pants though.

I always get my eight! I was confused. Thank you by the way.

I find my water goal is one I almost always can make, I just make sure I have water with meals and water while I'm sitting down doing anything (I can go through 32 oz watching a tv show easy).

Edit: I think I fixed all my icons. I don't know how I got that one wrong! Two is more than one.

kelly, one glass for 6 cups of water and 2 glasses for 8. If you always get your 8, i'll go back and add your extra points.

i can't believe it's only 5 days until we leave for hawaii. i need to get on the ball and start getting my things together. our hiking shoes came yesterday. it feels weird breaking them in because all i've been wearing all summer is flip flops.

time to go shorten a pair of pants. very hawaiian looking pants for when we go to a luau. i can't wait!

I thought the 2 glasses was 6 cups of water and the one glass was eight? Have I been doing this wrong? I drink 8+ every day.
