here we go...
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
I've spent the day getting ready for our upcoming vacation. And I am very excited, our family is going on a cruise from Galveston, we'll be on the ship for 5 days. And I am looking forward to no phone, no computer, no stress... yeah!
Of course, I am also looking forward to the food they provide on cruises and I am trying to figure out how to approach it. I don't want to really deny myself some of those pleasures, but I don't want to go crazy either. So I keep sort of going back and forth between the two and trying to imagine myself eating good things and yet splurging a bit, somewhere in the middle.
It figures that just this week I started a challenge that has gotten me back into tracking all that I eat and now I will have about 5 days where I can't do that at all. But it has felt good to be back in that habit and to be on SP more than I had been. And it feels healthier, which is a good feeling.
My weight has been about the same since before Christmas, which is a lot of time to have wasted in terms of losing, but at least I didn't gain too much back since then, only about 2 pounds. But I am ready to be losing again, so I don't want to do much damage while I am on vacation.
I hope everyone is doing well. I really appreciate all my spark friends who have stayed with me even while I have been missing and the support that has been given and helped me to come back.
We leave on Friday, so I don't know how much I will be on for the next 10 days. After the cruise we are staying with my folks in Houston for a few days so we can see how they are doing... but I will return after that and hope to make this a wonderfully Spark filled summer.
