It's Over

Boooooo  vacation is over!  I don't want it to be over!

We had a FABULOUS time!   We went to Ocean City, MD for a week and we had a blast!  We enjoyed sunrises, long walks, long bike rides and some wonderful time together!  I'm not ready to go back to work!

That said, My weight is up by about 3 pounds.  I'm not happy with that, but I do think that some of it is external factors that is causing my weight to be raised a bit.  What factors?

* my bodily functions are not exactly normal....vacations do those things you know!
* I had a bit of a situation where I was either severely dehydrated or having an allergic reaction.  My hands swelled up so bad that my rings didn't fit on ANY Fingers....not even on my pinky!  It hurt to move my fingers because the skin was stretched so tightly!  (It was accompanied by a weird rash and burning sensation on my lower leg.....small 2 inch patch on my leg).  The swelling went away by the end of the day...the leg still burns a bit. 
* On the last day at the beach I picked up a case of sun poisoning.....how crazy is that for October?  I know that sun poisoning (I"m not really sunburnt....so it's odd) and sunburn cause inflammation and inflammation can cause weight gain!.

So is the 3 pounds real?   Who knows...next week we will know for sure!

In the meantime.....here is a video of our vacation!

And if you won't want to watch the video...a few pictures.

What a beautiful place. I am sorry, though, that you had health issues while away. Glad you are okay now. Welcome back.

Looks absolutely perfect. Sorry to hear you were unwell though, hope you feeling better now.

Thanks! Who would have guessed that I would get sun poisoning in October...typically when we go away in October I am cold and covered from head to foot!

MaryFran said...

Thanks!!!! I’m still trying to get rid of the sun poisoning but back at work today.

Glad you had such a wonderful vacation. The weather seemed perfect!

The 3 lbs aren't real :) You'll lose it before you know it.

Sorry about the sun poisoning - I hope it goes away quickly!

UGH! As someone who spontaneously picked up sun allergy about 7 years ago, I can tell you that it can be the smallest amount of sun and my body freaks out with itchy rash. I was outside on a gloomy overcast day and still spent 3 days itching. Hopefully yours is situational and you won't be bothered by it again!
Looks like you had an absolutely dreamy vacation. I wouldn't worry about those three pounds, they will melt off and more now that you're back in your normal setting.

three pound gain on vacation not bad. I know you will be back on track and it will be off and even more.
Sound like you had a wonderful time.
Coffee is on

Yuck on the swelling and pain. Glad it mostly went away though.

Welcome back from vacation and real life. I am sure once you start hydrating properly those 3lbs will woosh away.

MaryFran said...

Thanks! I’m sure hoping that the three pounds disappears fast!!

MaryFran said...

Yikes! That sounds like no fun for you with the sun allergy!!!

MaryFran said...

Thanks! I’ve got my fingers crossed!

Thanks...it’s been a rough return! I didn’t want to go back to real life and I remain exhausted!
