A nice week of sun

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

Oh it has been such a long time since I did a blog. I can’t believe it !!!!


Sean and I just got back from a week in the sun. His parents have a condo down south.
I am blessed with good in-laws. They are nice and very generous. The downside of this generosity is that they like to spoil us and this time it involved a lot of food. His Mom was VERY excited to take me out for meals so I could experience all the places they go. It was always a surprise for me, so I didn’t know where we would be eating until we got there. We went to some great restaurants that we don’t have here in Canada. The Melting Pot etc. Delicious … but deadly. They space this eating over 6 months ... we jammed it all into 1 week.
Sean and I were joking that his parents had taken life insurance policies out on us and were trying to kill us by feeding us such bad stuff all week.

Sean and I rented a car and took off for a couple of days on our own. We had GREAT weather and got to do a little snorkeling and swimming. Lots of fun !!

We went for a visit to escape the winter here in the north…. but truth be told .. we really haven’t had much winter at all this year. I haven’t been able to snowshoe once and today is beautiful, sunny and warm for March. I am missing my new favourite winter pass time .. but I can definitely spend time outdoors so I have not excuse to not get out there for some fresh air.

I am back home and back on track. No messing around just eating properly and tracking everything. I have been struggling to get back on the wagon for about a year - ever since my Sister and the girls came to live with us for a month during the big natural disaster in Japan. I had been doing great up until that point and somehow let myself fall off the wagon and not get back on.
I’m feeling good about how I’m doing now … if we don’t count foodapalooza last week.
I just need to keep this going and I will !!!

    Sounds like a good time! We leave on Sunday for our escape to FL from the "winter that wasn't". Who knew when we booked our trip in November! Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to sun, golf and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Welcome home.

    You and Sean are adorable! Glad to see those smiling faces. :)

    You can do the tracking thing...you have before! We'll keep each other going.

    I had wondered how winter was up there. It's super crazy everywhere I guess. I kept thinking we'd get a little bit of winter, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen at this point! You know me, I'll take it. :) But I'm bummed for you not being able to do any snowshoeing!
