Sorry guys I have been MIA lately! This month has been going by so fast! I didn’t even have time to make or reach any monthly goals! It’s like woosh! Almost October! Anyway, this past weekend was fantastic! My brother and sister-in-law were having a baby shower in their home in Virginia Beach, and it was way past over-due to hang out with them! I hadn’t seen my sister-in-law since she became my brother’s wife, and I hadn’t hung out with my brother just because. Despite the 17 hours it took to drive down there, it was a super awesome experience! Even the drive was not that bad. I figured out how to travel successfully through city traffic and it was great bonding with the husband! I even ate fairly healthy during the trip even when grabbing a bite to eat at one of those rest areas did seem super tempting! I say that is a total success.
Now I don’t even know where to begin on my trip. All I can say is that it was fantastic and totally relaxing. It was really just what I needed right before my surgery which is coming up next week! Eeep!
The baby shower was adorable! I am going to be Auntie to a boy! Yee! I also got to help make the whole thing a lot less stressful which made me feel better about eating their food and stuff. They definitely deserved a little break and it was nice to see it go so smoothly except for the breeze, but that only really hurt the balloons. Ooops. I fell in love with the beach. I loved how it was still Summer down there and the ocean felt like bath water. I could have played in it all day.
I did eat a little crap… cookies, cupcakes, and yummy meat! But it was so worth it. I also had a few alcoholic drinks but nothing too over the top. The best part is I did not gain nor lose any weight. I was balanced. It felt awesome to just be in tune with my body but not being all crazy about calories. I was active every single day, ate when I was hungry, and just enjoyed myself. It made me realize that is exactly how I want to live my life. I really want to get away from the calorie counting and being worried about my weight. I went a whole entire weekend and didn’t gain an extreme amount of weight. It is such a freeing feeling. Has anyone else had this sort of experience? It was a nice experience.
So now on to some pictures!
I am so excited to be back to blogging and looking forward to catching up with everyone! I missed you guys… almost as much as I miss Virginia Beach! :p
