Not so Ideal…

So I’m back from my trip (see previous post) and I’ll admit, I was kind of bad…not like “Burn in Hell!” bad, just “kind of” in trouble bad.  I had toast two mornings towards the end and had a full fledged normal meal one night, including mashed potatoes, gravy and a dinner roll.  It was sublime.

I’m back home now, and trying to remember to get back into the swing of things, but have one downside…I’m completely out of my supplies!  I’m trying to be a frugal person for the next month, as our cruise is exactly one month away from today! Woohoo! Well, we leave a month from today, the cruise isn’t until the 16th of September, but still, I’ll be out of South Dakota and off my diet for 11 full days, omg that sounds insane!

Yes, really, I just “OMG”‘d about being off the diet for a while.

Let’s see, I weighed in yesterday at 162.2 ( +0.2 lbs from when we left for Sturgis) and this morning was back down to 161.4 , which yes, is less than when I left, hooray!  I had chinese food on Sunday night when I got home, so there could have been some water retention there, last night I made grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato and then had some tomato soup as well, and I still lost? OK, I’ll take it!  I’d love to drop a few more pounds before the cruise, but really don’t want to “shock” my body when it’s time to binge at the buffet, so to speak.  So here I sit, lounging in my jammies at 7:30 in the morning.  Debating whether I dig through my cupboard for my healthy food, or just grab the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, in all its glory, and chow down.

For today at least, it seems my willpower is firmly in place, and I’ll be grabbing my weird cinnamon vanilla cereal instead of my Cinnamon Toast Crunch bliss.  On the bright side, I did get more of my Sugar Free Caramel Mocchiato creamer

Image Well, I guess it’s time for me to get ready for work, and all that jazz, here’s to staying as close to “good” as I could, and finding my way back through the wilderness to “epic” by the end of the week!

Back from Sturgis

Well, I made it back. I feel like I got hit by a bus and am so glad to be home.

Here is me on our second to last day, all dressed up for a night in.

We rode 1600+ miles in 9 days, and my joints totally realize it! Hips, knees, shoulders and wrists are all sore, but this week taught me some things; semi trucks passing you when you are pulled off the highway can blow your motorcycle over if you are not careful, sunscreen is an amazing invention and should be used frequently, people are dumb, drunk people are complete morons, if you die from texting while riding it should be ruled suicide, if you get smashed and then ride, you deserve to get caught, cars will never see us as often as we see them, gravel sucks, and family can be amazing even if you just met them.

I haven’t weighed myself for today yet, I will after a few more minutes of sleep, currently on our couch with three of our four pets cuddled up with me, and yes I’m lazy! Back to work today, really wish I had given myself a recovery day, but se la vi and all that.
