Last official day

Today is the last 'official' day that we will be in Indiana. Tomorrow we drive back (and tomorrow is officially our last day of vacation.) I'm actually looking forward to getting back into a routine and getting back to eating healthy. I've made many healthy choices, so I'm very glad.

I've decided to not weigh myself until next week (tuesday, my weigh in day). I know that my weight will be up...I have not been drinking my water. I'd be lucky to say that I've had 24 ounces of water a day....and that is pushing it! But anyway, my plan is to really focus on eating healthy and getting everything back in line....and then after all is returned to 'normal' than face the scales. I don't want to get depressed if I see a huge gain. I want to get back to it first and make it a habit again before I do that. Otherwise it may be too tempting to continue the 'bad vacation habits'.

I stepped way out of my comfort zone. Yes, I'm still trying to do that. I have always wanted to get a massage...but I've never done it. Why? Because I have to bare my body. Yeah yeah yeah, it's all very PC, and I knew that my breasts and such would be covered...but still. My jiggly belly and flappy skin! Well, I pushed myself from my comfort zone and did it. It was quite nice. I did a massage/hot rocks combo. The hot rocks........really nice for someone that's always cold!

I had a massage only once and did enjoy it. Glad you treated yourself and stepped out of your comfort zone. My vacation gave me a +4lbs up according to my home scale...back on track now though.

I've always wanted to get a massage but like you am ashamed of my body. I think, yuk, who'd want to kneed all that fat and extra skin anyway? Mayby I'll get brave and try it sometime.

Hope everything goes will with your trip back home. I know you will probably be glad to sleep in your own bed. That is what I usually miss the most.

I'm proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone. I remember my first massage, I was so nervous about it but I loved it and still do. I work for a community college that teaches massage therapy. I love it. $12.50 for one heavenly hour. It doesn't bother me at all that they are learning. They gotta learn on somebody. Drinking a lot of water after a massage will help the toxins get out of your body. That is what one of the massage therapy instructors told me.
