Vacation and the diet
Saturday, May 01, 2010
The past week has been a low-keyed vacation for me. I had some plans in mind and then the timing didn't work with work so I ended up with this week off. Then I asked mom if she wanted to go on a 2-3 day trip and she didn't want to go the same places I did. So, the trip ended up being to French Lick-a casino with 2 old restored hotels that for some reason my mother has a fondness for. We never went to the casino.
I had trouble sleeping - not sure if it was the mattresses or the rainy weather. We both read books, watched some TV, ate out and did some swimming. I was a little concerned about the diet, but figured I'd work harder next week. But we ended up doing the buffet breakfast and then a small meal about 4 pm and that was it. No snacks in the room, so I was good. And I did get a pound off this week. Still not back to where I should be, but not bad for the time.
The rest of the week has been dentist and dr appointments (see other blog), some yard work and trying to clean/organize some of my house. I started on the pantry today since it was raining. I found a can of fruit that expired 2007. Guess I should have done this years ago!
Also cleaned a bathroom today. Not sure what I'll tackle tomarrow. I had hoped to do some painting, but the weather has made me real achy and I probably won't push it before going back to work Monday. I left lots of loose ends last week and I don't expect anyone to have cleaned them up unless there was a crisis. In which case I will have a bad day Monday too. I have been very good not checking email while I was gone.
The mental break has been good even if the week didn't turn out like I wanted. Hopefully the next one will work out better!
Have a good weekend. Diana
