Krampus.... Are you feeling better? I hope so!

One night in Napa and I'm up 5 pounds! I pray sodium is a big part of it! I'm worried with all of the traveling and celebrating I have in the next month plus. Gotta reign it in big time!

Hi all,
I'm back from my work week in Texas and right back into the busyness that is my office right now. A few of our new staff started this week which is really exciting bc there will be more help around! My trip was great and I'm really glad I got to go (I'm not allowed to travel often for work). I learned a lot and we had a great group to work with. Of course I didn't have much time to play tourist but I did get to have one really good breakfast burrito, got on the water a lot, and got to drive all the way to see the Bahia Grande near the Mexican border. The worst part of the trip was the travel and having to arrive at 3 AM and trying to stay awake driving the rental car, then having to do the same and leave at 2 AM to make our flights.

I missed yoga while I was gone last week. It felt so good last night. I've become a true convert. I can't believe when I started doing yoga 3 years ago I just looked at it as a good stretch, and hoped at some point I'd get some mental benefits. It keeps me sane and grounded.

We ate at our rental house for the week and back home I've continued to not have much an appetite because of the heat, and been active, so my pants-o-meter and the scale tell me I'm doing well and I *feel* good right now. Some shorts that barely fit last summer are a little loose today. I'm not actively trying to lose, just maintain equilibrium and sanity, but I'm not sad about this!

Dagmar, gl w your new advertising campaign and taking on some new clients! What book did you treat yourself to?

Michele, did you have fun in Napa? I'm sure 5# in one night is at least mostly sodium. Lemon water, some yoga, and 48 hours will flush it out.

Jessica, glad MuTu is showing some positive results! I agree, cutting out 100% of processed foods seems unrealistic, but the other food rules sound reasonable. Also glad the girls' rash is NBD.

Becky, Happy Birthday to DS and congrats on getting him through 15 years on the planet! He sounds like a great kid.

Allison, I hope your transition to a new company goes quickly and you can get over this stress soon.

CalCounter, your trip sounds fun! I am in 110% agreement with you regarding the Florida humidity. This time of year I always question why I live here.

Krampus, I hope you feel better soon. Is this from hormones or something else?

Happy 4th of July to my U.S. friends!

Agree 100% on the yoga!

Great fun in Napa! Still eating too much today though. I really need to reign it in. I think I'm thinking my whole summer is one long vacation free for all!

I think that happens to a lot of us who work in schools. I go either way with it. Some summers I treat it as an entire vacation and start eating vacation-mode in May! Other summers I have used it as a time to get in shape. Happy to say this is the first summer I'm in maintenance!

How exciting about your ad! I think it is the right thing. Doing something about it is definitely better than whining!

The rains just arrived. BOOM - there were here. Serious water coming down. Anyone in Boston to see the fireworks that were pulled back to tonight (rather than Friday, July 4th) will have gotten soaked.

Always nice to get a really positive reference from a pet. Last night I was dropping off the key for the small dog I walked all May and part of June. His owner had him out on the street and when he saw me he was so happy! He insisted we all walk together down the street and, when he saw me heading toward my car, he tried his best to follow me. His owner was very pleased at how much he and I obviously liked each other.

Yes, Sharon! I need to not look at my break as one long holiday!

Very cool about the dog, Dagmar. As a pet owner, that would mean a great deal to me!

Off subject, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with laser hair removal? My dd has very sensitive skin and is having a lot of skin issues from shaving her legs. She went to the dermatologist yesterday and has a treatment regimen to try. The doc told her in the future she should consider laser hair removal. Just wondering what to know or look for?

It occured to me that I can now, in the new house setup, watch a DVD while working out. Anyone have any yoga DVD's they would recommend? Not sure where best to post so you'll see this in a couple of places.

Thanks!

Dagmar

Summer's here, and I'm going to try a little body acceptance. Moving goal to match current weight and keeping my fingers crossed that I can maintain my
new normal better than my old one.

These are words my household (except for Mudpie) could really use as a guide to life. Cesar Millan is quoting them and, unfortunately, he doesn't attribute the quote to the correct source.

There’s a saying (incorrectly attributed to Lao Tzu) that goes, “If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.”
