Day 265-281

Sorry I haven't written here in awhile. I was busy packing for vacation and taking time to rethink my goals and such. It was really hard for me to give everything I had for the week I was gone and training to walk away with no loss from the week. In fact I walked away with a messed up knee and lost a toe nail. The entire thing. That was a sad day for me. Either way what I did learn is that Marcelle has patience of a god for putting up with me. I also learned that I can do a lot more if I put my mind to it. She taught me I can go a little further every time if I just put my mind to it. I also wanted to make sure that I didn't go backwards on vacation with what I did do.

Well I went on vacation and I can back with a gain of a pound. I am pleased with that. I went to a resort in a foreign country where finding anyone that spoke a slight amount of English was a sign of luck. Most of the time I ate food that I had no clue what it was or what was in it. As much as I wanted to keep my weight in control I also wanted to try things I knew I never would get the chance to try again. I am also sure I ate some stuff I probably wouldn't if I knew what was in it. I made sure and had a little of mostly everything every meal. It was payed for already, why not.

With the heat and humidity I drank a lot of water. I mean a lot so I am sure that helped keep my weight where it is. I spent a lot of time in the bathroom. More then I liked to but it meant I had to walk from wherever I was to the bathroom and back!

So now that I am everywhere today I will end by saying that I am back and ready to go. Tomorrow I will share with you my new plan. Things I walked away with from time with Marcelle. I am sure a lucky gal for knowing her as a friend and even luckier being able to spend time with her!

I will do my best to get caught up but please don't expect a comment on every post I missed. I can't believe how behind I am. I will be busy reading them though. I never knew it was possible to miss so much in a week.

Welcome home!

A pound gain is not bad at all for a vacation: well done!

The pics look beautiful.

I look forward to your plan.

You've asked about how I know my fat %. Well my scale shows also fat %, muscle % and water % of my body. It's accurate because when they measured this at my gym it was the same as at home.
