Tomorrow I leave for Playa del Carmen. It's my favorite place for Rest and re-creation! I am a water baby. I grew up by the ocean and moved to Tulsa as an adult. Being so land locked is hard on me. I do my best to get some ocean time at least once a year.
Last year we went to the Dominican Republic. I got one good ocean day in, scuba and swimming ALL day...then got sick that night. Ended up having an emergency appendectomy (old school-open abdomen) and spending the rest of my vacation in the hospital and in bed. They also diagnosed diabetes while there. I ended up using all my vacation and sick time recovering, and it's been a huge source of stress at work. Seems they don't much like you going on vacation then surgical recovery. Sorry folks.
I am so ready for my ocean time. We leave tomorrow at 6am. While there, with our all inclusive package I believe we get an hour per day internet time. It's amazing how fast one hour internet time flies.
My 20 year old daughter is staying here with the dogs, cats and rabbits. She's a sophomore/jr in college and school starts this week.
It's been a crazy week for me. Very busy trying to get my son set up in "virtual" school for this school year. He's in a study group with a couple of older girls who I know better than he does.
I've done quite well with my eating when I take food to work. It's coming home hungry from work that is my biggest downfall...and i want to EAT. FOOD. NOW.
Here's yesterday for example.
Smoothie made with;
2 cups frozen strawberries
2 cups (at least) spinach
salad of mixed greens (oil and vinegar)
bowl of water melon
I'm embarrassed to say... "Taco Bueno"
That's how almost every day went this past week. That's why I'm not losing the weight I want to lose.
For some reason it's easy for me to eat all raw until dinner time...and I all I want is a cooked meal. dont get me wrong, it's not like I don't or won't eat a salad with it. But I what I really want is not to want the other stuff.
It's sooooooooooo hard to eat 100% raw when your family is eating otherwise!
Our flight leaves at 6:30am tomorrow, the plans are to return August 20th. So I'll be home in time for the next vault weigh in, and in time for our raw food meetup in Tulsa the following day. I look forward to that!
I'm going to really miss being able to log in as much as I'd like while I am gone. I'm also really going to miss my vita mix and my morning smoothie. I am going to have lots of fresh fruit available to me at every meal though, and that's a good thing!! :)
Have a great week everyone and see you when I return with a fresh perspective on life! :)
