It feels like a long time since my last post and so soon after the holidays and my weight gain from that! Every year I am lucky enough to have 4 wonderful friends I meet up with to celebrate our friendships and love for one another. It is usually 4 days of laughing, drinking, shopping and eating with a little crying here and there, all in that order. This year because my friends from Chicago could get a better rate by leaving on Thursday, we made it an extra day long.
We were so excited about our planned trip with a hike on Saturday in the agenda, I figured I would have something to share with you all in the way of hiking. Then we had reservations at a great restaurant in LA, again a great opportunity to share, but it was not in the cards. Friday our hostess came down with the nasty flu that has been going around, we drugged her up and put her to bed hoping she would wake up feeling better. However, since most of us had some form of the current funk going around, we all knew it was wishful thinking that she could do any of the stuff we had planned….sure enough she woke up feeling worse. So we canceled our hike and our reservations because it wouldn’t be the same without her.
We winged our trip, which unfortunately involved more drinking and eating then normal with less movement because we wanted to be home with our girlfriend. She really rallied on Sunday but by then another girlfriend was starting to get to sick, I think you can see where this is going. Again more eating and drinking with no movement. It was a great trip as always, but man did I eat sooooooo painfully much!
Add onto the unplanned inactivity and overall consumption of bad food, the fact that I struggle for about a week when I come back to high altitude and well I am not weighing in this week. I know I have gained weight so I am giving myself this next week to get back on track and I will be honest with you all next week when I do get back on the scale. I should be able to get back to my old workout schedule by Saturday which I know will help me feel a ton better.
I have a low altitude but decent hike planned for this weekend, but I may hit an old standby since I was at sea level for almost a week. I can’t wait to get back into everything at full speed I am not sick and I have no more trips planned for a long time!!!!
