My vacation to San Francisco starts in 15 days!! I am very excited, albeit a little apprehensive about the plane rides. May ask my doctor about an Rx for 2 Xanax, one for each flight, when I have my check up next week. I probably won't do it, since I'm not a huge fan of medicines, and usually a strong believer in the "just suck it up" school of thought. But it's two long flights, in two tiny airplane seats, and my big ol' butt (BOB) is gonna be really crammed in there!
I'm a little frustrated with myself because not only will i not meet my 100 lbs lost goal, I've actually gone backward and gained a few pounds back over the last very very very UGLY two weeks. But the ship has been righted - I think I actually ate so much crap over the last week or so that I can't stand the thought of eating things that aren't healthy. So I got myself a little lunchtime treat of some brown rice sushi, and bought some gorgeous strawberries and blueberries. Going to have some roasted turkey breast with grilled veggies for dinner, and maybe some low fat cottage cheese with all my new found berries for a snack.
I was able to enjoy some fun activity yesterday with my nephews and husband - we were playing some baseball in their backyard and some frisbee later in the day. It was so nice to be able to be active and participate, instead of just sitting on the sidelines watching, which is what I used to do. I think that reminder was just what I needed to put the last piece of the puzzle back in place. My mind finally feels really right again - and now that I've started cleaning up my eating, I'm feeling much better physically as well. Now it's off to finish up some laundry, and then hang out in the backyard for a while taking care of my birds and plants.
