Home from vacation with some unwanted visitors

I got on the scale when I got home and 4 pounds followed me home.  YIKES!! I'm going to have to work hard to get them to go back to they they were and not on me!  I didn't eat too bad, but I'm sure I could have done better.  I did not get ANY exercise in.  It rained one whole day so we just stayed in and worked a jigsaw puzzle.  We did walk to a falls stop, but I have trouble breathing in high attitudes.  I just couldn't catch my breath, so we didn't do any more talking.  I was really hoping to get some walking in.

We did have a nice time at the cabin.  It was just so peaceful and charming.  I really hated to come back home.  We drove around one day and went to NC to check out the Indian reservation.  It was so commercialized.  We drove through the casino parking lot and I said we shouldn't waste our money.  I love Vegas, but this was only 1 casino and I didn't feel like going in and only staying a few minutes while we lost $20 or $40 at the machines.  We enjoyed the hot tub at the cabin.  Even though it was chilly outside we were nice and warm in the 100 degree water bubbling around us.

Now I'm back in the real world and I an going to have to get back to my real life.  It is rainy and VERY windy here in Ohio today, so I'm not going out walking.  I'm getting the vacation wash done and some fall cleaning that should get in some exercise.  I am going to eat on target today and tomorrow and I hope to see at least a maintain on the scale.  Plus since I always have a problem with going to bathroom while on vacation I'm hoping to get that back on track too.  That could be a big reason for the gain.

Oh, I forgot to tell you.  When I weighed in last Monday I had a 1.6 loss. That put me at 153.6 with a 33 pounds total loss.  Only 2 more pounds to getting another 5 pound star.  That puts me 8.6 from my lifetime goal again.  While I was at my meeting I had my smoothie and a snack bar and then  I stopped by to weigh I  for my weight loss challenge and I was 154.6.  I weighed in a day early since I was leaving for my vacation and wouldn't be here for the meeting.

OK, back to working on the things that need to be done here around the house.  My hubby has left for the day, but he's getting me a Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk DVD for Sweetest Day, so I can do that tomorrow if it's not nice enough to get outside and walk.  I made him some brownies.  I'm not planning on eating any of those.  Well, maybe just a small one. ;-)
