Back from Vacation, Back to Business

Sunday, July 28, 2013

We returned home late last night to a dead car. I had left my car in the bus terminal and it was totally dead. Ended up taking a cab home at midnight. Will go over to the lot today and see if a jump helps.

The last part of our vacation was spent at my FIL's house. He is 89 and not in fabulous health. His wife is a great deal younger and not in great health either. It was pretty stressful at times. We snuck away as much as we could. I did make a good meal one night and the others were takeout.

We went shopping, to the movies, and to the pool. Went for a couple of good walks. Mostly my food intake was over range but not totally crazy.

Today's plan is to get some food in the house and get cooking. I've already had a good, low cal breakfast and will build from there.
Also a good workout, of course. emoticon I missed those!

    emoticon back!

    I'm returning to normal today too! We got back last night from a 16-day road trip out west! We had a great time, great weather & for the most part I ate well. Stepped on the scale this morning to peek & saw a 4 pound gain! I'll begin my official WI on Friday.

    Back to the tracking I go. Plus with traveling home for 4 LONG days not much of any walking done it didn't help my weight or my knees. Time to get both back in order. I'll be hitting the treadmill for a nice long walk since its raining out. Plus I need to get groceries in this house! emoticon

    A cab ride at midnight is not fun.
