Back to life...back to reality

Oh my goodness, these last 4 weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. A WHIRLWIND I tell ya!

My hubs and I started our vacation/long-overdue honeymoon in Washington DC.

And ended with this...

Cape Town, South Africa

Walker Bay, South Africa

Franschhoek, South Africa

And our personal fave...Kruger National Park, South Africa

With all of that amazing traveling came lots of great food.  I tried new things, like Ostrich steak and grilled Kudu.  I had beef tar tar, which I still don't get why that's even a food and I ate a leaf that our guide in the bush told me was edible and would save my life should I ever find myself lost in the bush without a cushy 5-star lodge anywhere close by.

Weekly Weigh-In 23.0

Last weigh-in: 319.6 lbs
Current weigh-in: 319.6 lbs
Change: -

Considering how tired I've been this week and the busy schedule I've had to get back in the habit of dealing with, I'm just thankful that it wasn't a gain.

I'm feeling more human than I have since we got home and I am going to try and get back in the swing of things with some walks and hikes in the next week.  The weather is supposed to start turning yucky so I should take advantage of it while I can.

Weekly Weigh-In 22.0

Last weigh-in: 324.6 lbs
Current weigh-in: 319.6 lbs
Change: -5.0 lbs lbs

My biggest loss since my first week or two on the plan.  I'm quite proud of myself considering I was on vacation and without internet access.  Because of no internet, I wasn't able to track my foods or points.  I did get lots of exercise though, we did a lot of hiking and exploring on foot.

I'll have a post up soon about it.  We just got back to DC this morning after a 22 hour flight and I'm exhausted.  We fly home to Seattle tomorrow after resting at a friends house tonight and I can't wait to get home!

Weekly Weigh-In 21.0

Last weigh-in: 325.6 lbs
Current weigh-in: 324.6 lbs
Change: -1.0 lbs

I leave for my big trip tomorrow! Today is The Kids birthday.  I took the day off from work to surprise her.  She's a little put-out by not being able to join us on this trip, so I think a little spoiling is in order today.

See you when I get back in two weeks!
