I know I keep promising beach photos - I will upload them tomorrow!! But in the meantime, a quick diversion before I fall into bed, completely exhausted.
You know all the things you tell yourself, as reasons why you can't lose weight or get into better shape? (Whatever better means to you, that is.) Well, I believe you. Whether it's the doughnuts at the office or the cold weather that means no afternoon runs, or whatever it is, it's real.
Mine, as most of you know, is snacking. I probably eat as many calories in snacks each day as I do at meals. Well, I'm spending time with folks who not only don't really snack, they truly keep only healthy food around. No chips, no cookies, no trail mix from Costco, nothing, nada. It's like I'm on a reality show. I go to the fridge... nope. The pantry? Nope.
So I settle maybe for some fresh mango, and lots and lots of water. Am I hungry? Not really. I'm head-hungry, but not actually hungry. I do know that I don't have the self-discipline to do this at home!!
All of this is a very tired, very roundabout way of saying that I'm convinced between the lighter eating, the fresh fruit, the lack of snacking and the when-in-Rome action of me working out more (from never to sometimes)... I will end up being all fit for the wedding I said I wasn't going to lose weight for!
And it's also a way of saying that moving to another country where you don't speak the language and living with very healthy, active people is THE ONLY WAY to get in shape, for me. So I better enjoy the wedding photos in May, because kiddos, this is probably going to be the best I ever look.
I miss you all. Today was my first day of a big pang of homesickness, so thanks for stopping by to read the blog and I hope you have a great weekend ahead of you.
