Yes its a weight gain and not all that great of a feeling but if I really thought it through, I am sure I lost around 5 lbs from my trip. Which means I ate enough in a little over a week to put on almost 7 lbs…….. WOW! Ok a good thing to know about my vacation brain and eating habits.
I did it, its done and I am moving on. Life is going to continue to happen and I need learn from my overindulgence if this change is going to stick.
The past 7 days I have been working out like crazy, we are actually close to our summer level of activity but no where the intensity. Last Sunday we did 7 miles on the path behind our house. I hit the Elliptical every morning before work for 50 minutes. I took an almost 3 miles walk near work 4 times. We got in 2 long walks in outside at night. It feels so good to be moving at that rate I didn’t even realize I missed that tired muscle feeling for the past 5-6 weeks. I think I like to work out which I kinda knew but if only I liked to eat crap less, I am working on it.
I have 5 weeks to bury my head and focus on exercise while tracking my calorie versus activity ratio, then my nieces are coming to visit me for their spring break. I have a lot of activities planed, including 2-4 hikes for while they are here. Aaron and I are like kids waiting for a Disney vacation counting down the days until they are here. It is so much fun to have them here and to show them why I love it here so much ( and maybe trick them into moving here) instead of Chicago.
Now is a clean slate with everything to look forward to this summer.
