Back from vacation!


I'm back! We got home late last night from a really nice trip. The sunshine was wonderful; just having the sun on my skin for hours each day has truly helped my energy level and mood! I feel like I got a little taste of spring, and now the gloomy winter doesn't seem so bad. We spent a couple days on beaches and did some hiking in forests. Here's a few pics to see how pretty it was, even in winter!






I walked a lot of miles and got very sore but feel so much better and am inspired to keep up the walking here at home. Still, I weighed 248 this morning, up a pound from last week. I ate really well for the most part: fruit, nuts, some homemade chili with lean ground beef, veggies, and beans, an omelet full of onions, peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, and broccoli, and salads. When we went out to eat I had an excellent shepherd's pie (beef, vegetables, topped with mashed potatoes) and salad. I also split a big square of freshly made fudge with my daughter, drank a lot of decaf coffee with cream, and ate a small bag of potato chips on the way home.

Plan for this week: plenty of water, no junk, eat whole foods, exercise 6 days.

Sounds like a great break. Congrats on the upbeat outlook. Stay strong and I'm sure the losses will come.

There is nothing like the beach to soothe your soul.

I am glad you enjoyed yourself.

Being in a good place mentally is half the battle.

Hi Lyn:
Thought I would say "hi" before your commenters tell you how "bad" fudge is and all that prescriptive stuff.
Look forward to reading about you getting healthier and happier this year.
Regards,
Marianne
