No Place Like Home

I am back from vacation and so happy to be home! Vacation was great but there is really no place like home. I am happy to be back to work and ready to get back on track.

I usually gain weight on vacation so I was counting on it this time, as well. I left for vacation weighing in at 240 lbs. When I came home a week later, I weighed in at 239. I actually lost a pound from this cruise vacation! I haven't been tracking food or exercising (due to my medical emergency) but I am slowly starting to feel better; more like myself, again.

Today was my first day back to work. I have been very busy so the time is flying by! I made sure to take some time (right now) to actually enjoy a lunch break. I had an artichoke, chicken and spinach panini for lunch. I packed a salad, some baby carrots and string cheese to snack on throughout the day. I made sure to eat breakfast this morning, too. I was probably too excited to eat breakfast this morning because we bought lucky charms cereal. I know its not the best choice but I made sure to eat a banana, too!

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is only 2 days away. Just last week, I was in the Bahamas. It truly felt like summer! I can't wait to share some of our vacation photos, soon. Here are a few iphone photos from our trip to hold you over until I transfer photos from our camera card:
