Home Again, Home Again
Sunday, June 26, 2011
Just got back from vacation, which was much needed. We went to Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, north of Jacksonville, Florida. Unfortunately, Florida is going through a major wildfire season, and one of the worst ones was due west of where we were staying. So, the mornings were smoke filled. You could go outside, if you enjoyed breathing. I have major allergies, so I didn't dare go outside until the ocean winds picked up in the afternoons and cleared all the smoke out. Thank goodness for ocean breezes!
We had thought of going to St. Augustine, but there was also a fire going on near there. So, we were total beach bums! Alas, we also ate like kings. I can't go to the beach and not eat seafood until I feel stuffed. Also enjoyed a few delicious, but large, margaritas. Pretty sure I decimated all of the weight I'd lost the past few weeks...but, you know, it was worth it.
Now it's time to get back up on the horse. Going to join a gym, since my feet do not seem to like impact of any kind right now. Elliptical trainers and bikes are for me! And, I will get back on my eating plan, which is actually pretty easy now that I don't have huge plates of crab, shrimp, etc. sitting in front of me.
