Adjusted Reality

“Reality can be beaten with enough imagination.” – Mark Twain

I Totally Exist

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!


When It All Falls Apart

  4. Is the Yoga helping that back by now, woman? I hopes so. Glad you got to get away for awhile!
