Welllll, good morning Motivators!
I'm back from a WONDERFUL vacation. BF and I visited the Tampa Aquarium, an old WWII Merchant Marine ship, and we went to a GREAT Red Sox game (they won! It was awesome!!) and all in all had a fun time not thinking about anything responsible! I feel really invigorated.
Here's us at the game (please ignore my yellow-ish skin, the lighting was terrible at Tropicana Field. I promise I was well!)
As for my diet -- well, I'd give myself a "C" for the vacation. I ate stadium food, to be sure, but I didn't go crazy-overboard and I didn't have a lot of beers. BF and I also did a LOT of walking around and being active, and I actually don't feel really bloated or anything today, so I'm taking that as a good sign.
I'm happy to be back to goals, though. I want this motivational feeling I have to last. So let's get 'em guys!! I was going back over the old thread and I want to thank everyone for the AWESOME birthday wishes!! You make my heart feel two sizes too big
Also, seems like it was a stressful week for a lot of people! My heart and hugs are going out to you. Just remember to take it one day at a time if you must!!
I'm tweaking my goals a little and going back to some "old" goals that had served me well in the past, particularly for exercise. The 30DS helps and is always on the menu for days I can't make it to the gym, but it gives me too much excuse to go "meh" if I'm tired and just skip it. Making myself go to the gym is good for me, and I really want to get back on the focused track I was on before.
