Well, the vacation is over. I last posted here 15 days ago, the day I left for vacation. We’ve been back from the trip since Monday, but apparently I have still been on a vacation when it comes to minding my Ps and Qs on my health journey. Today I tipped the scale at 220.6 pounds. That represents a 4.8 pound gain in 2 weeks. Ugh. I told my wife this morning as we were passing at the bathroom door. Her answer was “OK, get back on the horse.” And, that’s just what I plan to do.
In my last post I said I was going to walk 100 miles in August. Sadly, I didn’t keep track of my walking well on vacation, so that is out the window. Oh, yeah, and then I didn’t do much this week.
Starting today I am going back to publishing my WW tracker. That worked well for me. Honestly, I had very little cell coverage on vacation, so tracking was difficult there. I have no such excuse since coming back, only to say that I didn’t get it done.
For the week ahead the plan is simple. Track everything. Walk more. Look up the address to that gym place I was going to, and get back to work.
The good news is that I had a great vacation. I came back feeling refreshed for the challenges ahead. I am disappointed this morning, but honestly not surprised. I knew that while away I indulged on snacks and adult beverages. I know that we spent more time in the car and less on the trails than we had anticipated. For that I have no regrets, it is just the facts of the trip. What disappoints me more is how I have done THIS week since being back. I have had no trips to the gym, and my tracking has been spotty. With this morning’s wake up call, I am – as my wife suggested – climbing back on the horse. Onward to better things in the days and weeks ahead.
