Where to start... Well, I got my hair dyed a few days ago! My Aunt took me to her hair guy in VA and I got it dyed to mocha brown with some highlights. I am happy with it! It is very pretty in the sunshine.
I wish I got to post this earlier but I didn't realise how long it was going to take me to go through my vacation pictures!
After traveling thousands and thousands of miles in the past 26 days; I'm back home! I will now be back into the routine of blogging every day. I had a wonderful trip. As for my diet I cheated quite a bit more than I would have liked to. I am happy I enjoyed myself and maintained what I had lost. I weighed in this morning and I am still exactly where I was the last time I weighed myself in VA. 73 pounds down. I would have liked to have lost more but I think losing 9 pounds while on vacation is pretty good!
I flew home yesterday. I had to stop in Chicago and Milwaukee. I rode on 3 different airplanes and almost missed the last one! There was a delay in Chicago and by the time I got to Milwaukee I was running late. I got to my gate and there was no one in sight. No janitor, no desk lady...nothing! It felt like I was in a twilight zone. I started freaking and saw my plane all closed up and ready to go and then this guy came out from the door and saw me and he rushed back and started yelling "wait, we have one more, wait!". They had to open up the plane door again for me and put the ramp/stairs back out. If it wasn't for him I would not have made it! What a nightmare. I was so relieved to finally get to sit down.
I'm not even going to talk about what I ate this past week and half. I was bad and I am so thankful that I didn't gain anything. I think I didn't gain anything because I was pretty active and I walked some days. What happens on vacation; stays on vacation! LOL
Today I got up and had my oatmeal with a cup of coffee. For lunch I had 2 eggs and wheat toast cooked with a little bit of my light I can't believe it's not butter. I am on my 4th cup of green tea and have had a few glasses of water. I missed dinner but had some grahm crackers and milk a little bit ago. I have not exercised today. I am taking it easy.
Below are some pictures from my trip down South I took with my small hand held digital camera. Our journey started out of my driveway. My cousin drove and we headed towards VA. We stayed in VA for about 2 weeks and then we headed even further down south to FL. We stayed in FL for about a week and then came back to VA for about another week. Yesterday my Aunt drove me about an hour and half to the airport in NC. From NC I flew to Chicago and from Chicago I flew to Milwaukee. From Milwaukee I flew to Rhinelander, WI where my Mom picked me up and we drove another hour and half to get home. When I was in Rhinelander my Mom and I went to Wal-Mart. I had worn a dress home with some new boots I had gotten in VA and this guy walks up to me in the store and said "Just from observation, you are too dressed up for this store." LOL - I guess that was a compliment? Whatever it was it made me laugh.
I am in the process of getting settled and back into the groove of things.
At the end of this I posted a video that I had put together. It's all the little video clips I had taken while I was away in hyper-speed.
Until tomorrow! :-)
