Done with the break
Monday, April 22, 2013
Ah, my parents were in town all weekend. And my in-laws. It was a fabulous time. We laughed, we drank, we hiked, we played cards... all in all, it was not a terribly unhealthy weekend. But, keeping up with four senior citizens on a hike isn't challenging like I'm used to.
My time has been scarce, as I'm spending as much time as possible with my husband before he goes away for the summer on a work trip. I have been putting my energy into helping him pack, making his favorite things, doing random things that will make him happy (like getting the car washed -- ugh), and being available whenever he wants me to do something fun. Everyone wants to give him a send-off, so we have parties and dinners and family visits to add to the mix. I have a week left before he goes, then I will be knocking out my massive "To Do" list for the next few months. Is it wrong that I will be relieved to be left alone for a little while?
I had a really great couple months in Feb-Mar, and am hoping to pick up where I left off and drop the rest of the weight. I don't know if I'll be able to fit in great workouts this week, but I'll certainly be able to eat well with all the healthy stuff we bought for the Ps. (My dad is on chemo and can only eat fresh stuff. Bonus!)
Anyway, this is my statement that I'm going to be on Spark every day and tracking my meals, even before the hubby takes off. I need a jump start rather than waiting until he gets on a plane!
