I’ve been here…
…and there, and a little bit of everywhere.
Three quick notes, and I’ll be back with the cruise recap later.
1. While I’ve given myself the week to get back into things before I hit the scale, I don’t feel like I’ve gained. My pants fit the same. I actually felt like I looked decent in my swim suit today – like, almost *better* than I did before vacay.
2. While I didn’t eat like an angel, I only ate like an asshole for 2 days of the cruise – mostly because I was feeling sorry for myself and I also wasn’t drinking, so it probably evened out calorie-wise.
3. I managed to throw out my back again and get a minor cold (hence the not drinking and feeling sorry for myself for a few days – above), but it totally did not ruin my vacay. I took things a little slower than expected but y’know – that’s just the universe telling me that’s what I needed. And it felt good.
This week, it’s all about getting back into the swing of things. The moment I got home, I craved good food like sprouted grain bread and tuna and veggies and fruit and hummus and the like and that’s what I’ve been nomming. My back is still not 100%, so I’m trying to stick with what I know is ok – 30 mins on the elliptical/30 mins swimming per day, four days this week, maybe with some yoga in there. And less if my back shows signs of not being ready to do even that. Food-wise? Tracking calories, and trying to stay around 1500 avg per day. Seems sane to me!
Until next time, campers. Hope you’re having a lovely week!
