Back to Reality...

Okay - so today is back to the real world (as much as I might dislike it!) This past weekend was totally amazing! The hubby and I went on our anniversary trip to Nevada and had a blast! I ate and drank way too much - but that's what vacations are for right??? We walked a ton and I snuck a peek at the scale this morning (because I was curious about the damage I'd done) and it wasn't too bad. Water weight and everything showed 186lbs this morning, so can't really complain too badly.

The hubby and I are now going to start focusing more on nutrition - over the next few weeks we are going to eat at home more and that should help with the weight loss as well as saving some money. Even though I'm not tracking my food, I'm thinking about trying to put myself right around 1600 cals a day - which should make for a good deficit but be enough to fuel through my workouts. I'll have to play around with it for a little bit and see how that works out.

I didn't get to run on vacation like I'd planned - after walking for 3 days straight, my knees felt totally wonky and I didn't want to risk injuring myself by going out for a run. Some friends want us to run with them in a 5K in a few weeks - which normally wouldn't be an issue. However, I haven't ran that distance in months and I have no idea what I'm going to be capable of. When your cardio is mainly Zumba classes, any other cardio may or may not improve - just depends. I think I'll try to hop on the treadmill this weekend and see what I'm able to do! Either way - its only $27 per person to enter, and we get a shirt for participating - so its not a biggie. Might not hit my sub-30 goals, but right now its all about learning to adapt to what life is currently handing you....and right now its handing me a pair of wonky knees and minimal free time. YAY!

Anyways - hope things are well with everyone. Got 2 classes with the schools today after work, then I'll be able to go home and rest. Looking forward to some relaxation for sure!!
