I'm back...

Sunday, April 01, 2007

The last two weeks have been quite a whirlwind. We went to Brussels for 4 days and then came home for 3 and left again for Romania for a week. I thought for sure that I would come back weighing 5 pounds more than when I left, but I only gain .2 kilos! Talk about jumping for joy! I was worried because I had not had enough water while I was gone. Finding toilets in Romania is a challenge, to say the least, so I tried to get my water in the mornings and evening while we were at the hotel. But, I was sure that I wasn't getting 8 glasses. The food in Romania and Brussels was really yummy. We tried to eat ethnic dishes as much as possible-and portions were small. My downfall though was the beer in both countries-not to mention chocolate in Belgium! But, I'm proud I didn't over do it. We went to the local market each day and stocked up on fruit and healthy snacks. I also wore a pedometer so I was counting steps and we walked EVERYWHERE. Some days walking as many as 22,000 steps. It was brilliant. We had such an amazing time. I am happy to be back and sparking away. I missed my teams and being active on the boards. It shows me how important the support from the group can be...and how crucial it is to my personal success.
