It’s good to be home. I loved being on vacation and spending time with friends and family, but I’m happy to be back in my own house with my sweeties. I kept itching to write while I was away, but didn’t have the resources to pull it off. Oh sure, I could have used a pen and paper, but what fun would THAT have been? No, I wanted, but didn’t have, internet. But oddly, being disconnected (aside from the Facebook feed on my phone) was a good thing.
While I was gone I made good on my vow to have a fun, active vacation. I was playing soccer with the kids, taking long walks (and some short ones), and working out in the pool. I also found and purchased my pink boxing gloves. I LOVE them. I’m not entirely sure what to do with them yet, but just wearing them and jabbing at my teenager’s palms (making him laugh) was enough to have me hooked. I also got outfitted with a slick new pair of sneakers, so naturally I want to use them.
My vacation saw me down six pounds in spite of having every delicious thing I wanted. Yay, me! Now I have to take that attitude back to everyday life. My keys were fruit for breakfast, trying to be active everyday (I missed two days and felt like a slug), and eating what I enjoy, just less of it. So far, so good.
