My steps counts for vacation look amazing. We did tons of walking. I doubled my average every day….. and I probably doubled my average calories each day too. We packed breakfast/lunches but I swear dinner and our many brewery visits negated it all. I feel kind of bloated and my skirt is tight today – not good signs!
Got off to a rocky start at vacation – my neck tried to give me a migraine so the first night I was in bed pretty quickly. The second day, not 15 minutes after we got on the beach, I had to call 9-1-1 for stranded swimmers. The lifeguards were not on duty yet and I think this guy and his wife got caught in a rip tide and panicked. It was a bit scary but I am SO glad that I brought my phone to the beach and we were there to help. Beach patrol & 911 responded very quickly and were able to pull them in before they… well… drowned. Lesson here folks is to never swim without a guard around, know your strength and the ocean, and know what to do in a rip tide.
Besides that, we relaxed on the beach, played some arcade games, and saw a Spanish Galleon. I’ve got a little sunburn in a bad place, let’s just say I missed a critical spot that doesn’t usually see much sun. Ouch!
I don’t know why coming back to work on a Friday was a good idea, but here I am. Still a lot of uncertainty and craziness and such going on here, but the time away really did help.
Got my meals planned for next week. I’ve been breaking in my speedforms so hopefully we have some good walking weather days. If not, I REALLY want to get into pilates or yoga again. My BF had a big talk about it at the beach and I think at least 2x/week I should be doing it. I can’t build strength and sanity if I don’t stick with it! I’m really trying to find stuff with a good mix of exercise and mental help lol. Plus my skirt really is a bit tight today and that is no bueno.
Anyways, hope you all had a great week!
