And when I go off plan...

I drank beer yesterday, slept a lot of the day (up until 4 am Saturday night) and the only exercise I got was wandering down the beach for coffee and festival soooo...I gained 2 pounds. I told DB last night, "if I'm going to gain 2 pounds from beer, it had better be a tasty one". It was. And I am back with a vengeance today.

Until I have time to write the final installment of my travelogue, here are a couple of links to some interesting stuff I heard on the radio this morning:

I particularly like the title of the bacon segment. ;-)

Looking good too!

Okay was it ONE beer - and that put on 2 pounds? Is there salt in beer? Or would it be something about the curing process (or whatever it is called)???

Oh my goodness, no...it was 3 beers. Oh, and two Bloody Marys. And a couple of pieces of toast. And sushi rice. Yup, that's about all of it. I guess I wasn't clear. ;-)

Anyway, it will be gone tomorrow...long bike ride on the beach tonight (beautiful sunset) and perfectly back on plan. There will be days when I'm bad like yesterday, but as long as they are not frequent, I'll be ok. :-)
