Well, I got on the scale today from our 2-week vacation - - - - gained 7# - - OUCH!!!!!!! Energy is low, self-esteem is low etc. BUT, today is another day and am on track so far today. Been busy unpacking, laundry, laundry, and more laundry as well as sorting through mail and making out bills!!! Hate that job!! I hate it worse when it's combined with so many other things that had to get done as well!!! Did walk the first mile today with the dogs - 1 more mile to go yet this evening AFTER it cools off and the humidity is down I hope - - right now it says it's 100 outside with 47% humidity.

Now it's time to get to the post office to pay those bills we just made out and maybe get a few groceries as well, enough to hold us over until tomorrow anyway so I can stay on track better.

Sure am glad this trip is over!! It was a mandatory dr's visit for my hubby and then visit with family and friends!! We are definitely getting to old to do all this running/driving!!!

    Hi Judy,
    I hope there was something fun or interesting or restful in the vacation to even things out from all the before and after chores that come with a vacation, even a business vacation like you took.

    That weight increase is made of a lot of stuff--mostly water retention from the change in your normal life style. Even with some over eating, it would take a tremendous lot of food going in to cause a gain like that. By now--a month later, I hope your body is back to normal.

    Gentle hugs,

    Wondered where you have been. Yeah, getting older has its own challenges. Fully realized this weekend that I cannot keep up with our 2 year old grandson. He's already half my height and weighs nearly 40 pounds. Yikes!

    Old age isn't for sissies. Every year I find a new ache I didn't have last year. The only thing good about getting old that I have found so far is grand kids (if you can keep up)
