Today's weigh-in shows me just 0.2 pounds (virtually NOTHING) above my pre-vacation weight (2.8 pounds less than last Friday)!! Whoo hooo!! Now I can keep on the downward trend. :-)
I have shown myself here that I can have a vacation, enjoy "bad" stuff for a week, gain some weight and still get back to Normal and keep up with my good healthy lifestyle. This week's loss is even after the challenges of last weekend (after which I got Drastic). The Normal is actually, I think, The Balance: some days I overdo, some days I underdo = Balance. I think it might be kind of weird to actually have to think this out and notice it -- I'll bet a lot of people live this way with food all the time without having to make such a conscious effort. I don't know if I ever was that way...I doubt if I ever can BE that way. But this way is OK...I don't mind being more conscious. And I love Balance.
DB leaves for Nearby Town tomorrow for 8 nights. These are not my favorite weeks. It's hard to cram a whole month's worth of Real Life into 3 weeks a month. But it is what it is. I know it's hard for him too...
I have plenty to do to keep me busy, of course! Tonight I hope we get to go see the new Indiana Jones. Tomorrow, I have gym, bang trim (my hair dresser now is speaking to me only in Spanish so I can keep my skills up!), getting Doglet a nail clip, and dinner with a friend in another part of town. Sunday I hope to be able to get to the beach for a few hours just to rest and read (that was so nice on vacation!), go to the gym, then dinner with my mom.
I'm happy that I can still do most of my gym routine with my wrist as it is...the only real things I can't do at all are the four arm weight machines that I usually do. It's not bad at all. I am sad that I won't be able to go to yoga class for a bit (SO much depends on your arms...I never really noticed!), but if I can keep up my fitness otherwise, I should be fine when I can go back. I am still hoping the doc tells me next Tuesday that the fracture is all better and I can lose the brace...positive thinking!!!
Wishing everyone a good weekend... :-)
