goodbye vacation, hello real world

Monday, July 09, 2018

So, vacation is over. Groan!!
Honey and I went to the Smoky Mountains. It is only like 2.5 hours away from us and we stayed two nights. We went thru the park and walked a few easy paths.
We swam in the hotel pool and did a whole lot of nothing!!!
We skipped Gatlinburg, took the scenic by-pass road around the city, it has become way to congested and way to expensive for me. I like the more laid back atmosphere of Pigeon Forge.
We also drove out to Cherokee, NC....a beautiful little river runs thru it and everyone was getting out of their cars, and wading....lots of Indian themed souveniers there.
Not alot else, unless you want to go to the casino.
But I love North Carolina....to me would be the perfect balance between the Mountains and the ocean. That would be my ideal place to live.
It wasnt really a planned trip, we just kinda decided the day before to go somewhere so I booked last minute hotel room.
We had a good trip, bought fireworks in Tennessee and spent this weekend catching up with friends riding the trails and having a cookout.
I did eat and drink a little more than I should have for someone who has been trying to lose weight.
I havent been back on the scale and dont want to.
I didnt really go too far off track, but I did enjoy a few cocktails and ice cream, and probably more bread than I have eaten in two months!!!
Life is to be lived.
I want to be healthy, eat healthy and lose weight, but I want to enjoy my life as well.
Finding a healthy balance between living life and keeping a healthy lifestyle.....that is what I am working on.
Back to reality, Honey went back to work today and I will spend the day cleaning house, doing laundry and catching up on the bill paying.
Happy Monday.
