The Days After The Vacation


I tried not to put a lot of expectations on my huge list of things to do upon our return from vacation. I knew the boys weren’t going back to school until Wednesday, so there was no rush in jumping right in to my “To Do” list! It feels like the last two days have been rather foggy. This is what I was up against…. a very bad sore throat, wanting/needing to get a chiropractic treatment from my husband, barely any food/groceries in the house, wanting to visit with my family that I hadn’t seen in 2 weeks, a dentist appointment, an extreme desire to get back to my regular work-outs, needing to unpack/do laundry, taking down christmas decorations and getting the house back in order, etc! And I know I’m forgetting way more… but I’ll spare you the details.

So, I opted for the easy ones! I went out for dinner yesterday and was able to visit with some family that I haven’t seen…. I got my chiropractic treatment, I did make it to the grocery store to pick up some essentials, I worked out, and I made it to my dentist appointment. Yay! When the boys start back to school tomorrow, I’ll tackle the rest of the list….

I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
