Weekend off

Monday, June 11, 2012

Spent the weekend out of town and with friends where we did nothing but eat and stay up way too late. Relaxing, but today I'm bloated and tired and off-schedule. Still, life is about those celebration moments, and I'm glad I can go off for a weekend like this and not come back completely freaked out. Freaking out used to lead me into going off the rails. Now, I'm just thinking that I have to get back on track, first with a short-ish bike ride today (14 miles to an appointment), and then with getting up on time and getting things done tomorrow.

It's wonderful to have a "this is life" rather than "this is diet" mentality. I'm really digging it.

    Glad you had a great weekend and you are right, back on track in your "real life" without worrying about having fun. That didn't mean you didn't make good choices when possible, but you didn't obsess about exercise and that is important.

    Some weekends are like that. And it's good to do every once in a while...keeps you sane.

    I love your outlook on "this is life". I'm glad you can hop back on that bike and get your week started out right again.
