Coming home to me

By some miracle, when I got on the scale this morning (yes, still weighing despite total food/non-exercise orgy for the past few weeks), I was down 0.2 pounds from last week. Yes, I know that's less fluctuation than I could get from a good bathroom trip, but it's amazing how at least not seeing it go UP made me feel better...like I can crawl back on the wagon again. :-)

I have been BAD since mid-August when our friend arrived (she just left on Wednesday). It is hard to be disciplined when there is a total lack of discipline enveloping you. And I didn't manage to keep myself with my program. By the first day of Burning Man, I had pretty much thrown all the good eating habits of the past months to the wind.

Having said that, I think the worst thing over the past few weeks (yes, I have gained more, but am still WAY down...lower than when we came back from Mexico even) has been little to no organized exercise. It was hard to bike at Burning Man this year due to huge sand dunes that would make you crash if on your bike and you ran into them so we walked more and saw less and got less good, hard exercise. And, of course, when you start drinking beer after lunch every day, that's not good for the old waistline! ;-)

Anyway, now that our guest is gone and we are ALMOST unpacked, I feel like I'm coming home to ME. Some of my clothes feel uncomfortable and I swear I look so FAT in the mirror and that makes me feel awful. But I don't have much to lose before I'm back where I was...just need to buckle down.

And I really truly WILL write the long-awaited Burning Man report -- I need to do it soon -- hopefully this weekend there will be some time to relax. Work has been a BITCH so I really NEED my weekend. Here's hoping it's quiet...

I think I've caught up on most of your blogs so will start joining in the conversations again soon...I've missed you all!!!! :-)

Pictures were great. They opened right up and I enjoyed them all. I did wonder how a girl can ride a bike nakie. . .and if the baby ate the sand (whose baby was that anyway?). What on earth did you guys do for 2 day blowing sand? Just stay in the van. It didn't look like your tent would keep it out at all. Is this the first sand storm - or does it happen at least a little bit every year???

And I forgot to say - LOVED the red bra.

I couldn't stand all the people and ruckus and noise - but would have no problem running around in my underwear. . .
