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!
