It seems 90% of my friends who reside in Muncie are either just coming back from, on, or going to go on vacation to tropical paradises such as San Antonio, Las Vegas, and St. George.
I also am on vacation -
OK, so I'm still in Muncie, still in my home....
But I've been 3 months at my weight loss regime and I'm afraid I have gotten a bit lazy these past few days. My dinner last night consisted of a fresh green salad (OK- It's free from my garden and I justify everything else by eating it!), a chocolate bar, and 4 or 5 chocolate raspberry sticks. I also spent 3 hours on the hammock reading Jane Austin's "Northanger Abby". (I feel to celebrate here just a bit, I have finally read a book for the upcoming book group!) Bill is 'vacationing' at girl's camp and I tend to be overindulgent when he is away.
Today has not been much better, besides the salad, I really have eaten little of nutritional value. I rocked in the hammock another few hours riveted to "Year of Wonders", a book a friend gave me as a gift when she moved away. I shall be at it all night, since my bedchamber will be emptier than usual.
I did do some things of worth...
This morning I did my 5 miler (yesterday I had to do 3). Last week I decided to 'try out' my new body (and new shoes) by sprinting a few times throughout my walk. To the casual observer it may have looked like a casual jog, but trust me, it was as fast as I could lift one heavily muscled leg and put it in front of the other! I should be given double points because Clover (the dog) is not a sprinter and I pulled her 30 pounds behind me much like a newly wed's car decked out with tin cans bouncing behind it. I did feel the effects of some of the jarring the next day, but a good yoga session straightened me back up.
So today I made another attempt at some sprints. That should take care of a couple of raspberry sticks.... And I finished pruning, feeding and watering my tomatoes, another stick... And I did my very best in my yoga class tonight, that should take care of the slice of Papa Murphy's pizza and Tawny's homemade chocolate moose, or a few bites of it anyway.
All that being said I did knock off around a pound and a half this week at my official weigh in this morning.
Hey - how many people can say they loose weight on vacation?
