Yes, it’s the return of the Blob. I do feel like a blob after ten days on vacation. We went to the California desert. And the weather was way cooler then seasonal. It only got into the 70’s one day. And we only had good sunshine for about 3 days and it even rained two or three times. We didn’t get the exercise in that we wanted to. The condo place we stayed at boasted an exercise room, but it was filled with really old home exercise machines. The exercycle was ancient. After 15 minutes on it, my sits-bones were sore for two days. The belt on the treadmill slipped a lot, too. So, we only used it once. Hubby is not a walker, so I stayed lazy with him on that point. Only played 3 rounds of golf while we were there. I guess I was a bit disappointed with the accommodations, and the weather. Couldn’t sit outside on the patio and enjoy the sunshine like we wanted to. But it WAS a vacation, and I’m glad to get back to my own bed.
Foodwise, I did okay on the trip. I didn’t make many bad choices. We ate lots of beef and fish. Once in awhile some bread snuck in there, but that was only at restaurants. And I did indulge in my favorite Starbucks drink (caramel macchiato) three times. We didn’t eat out much. Did most of the cooking in the condo. I would say I leaned more towards hubby’s Atkins diet (sans pork and chicken) than my healthy B diet. Didn’t have the right proportions of fruits. I think lack of exercise and being a bit heavy on the snacks and portions probably put a couple pounds on me. I’m not going to look until Monday, though. I need a couple days to drink some juices and eat my veggies.
