Well this week I was in Florida all week which was a big challenge for me. It was a spur of the moment trip with a friend so we could get out of the rain that's been nagging us here in Maine the past 2 weeks and shop for her new FL home. It was a fun and busy week where we spent time in the pool then off shopping in the afternoons. I was amazed at how much junk we managed to stuff into our little hatchback car rental. We had lots of laughs and managed to outfit her new house and I even bought new bar stools and patio set for our house. DH even approved when he arrived in FL on Friday.
Diet was pretty good this week - we had cereal, fruit and lean-cuisines during the day and ate out dinners. With the exception of 2 nights out of 7 I ate healthy salads and didn't over indulge. That's an improvement for me where last winter we ate big heavy meals with lots of drinks celebrating any and everything.
Exercise - the heat was my excuse for not exercising in FL. The humidity and 90's kept me from getting out for daily walks or bike riding. It's amazing how quickly we can fall back into our old excuses and get out of the workout routine.
Returning home found me struggling to get back on track but I will succeed. One day at a time.
