I'm still here!

Got back yesterday from a week in DC with my husband and kids. Tons of sightseeing and even more walking. (We think we walked at least 5 miles almost every day, except the 2 days of driving. Did not run once.) Good thing about all the walking is it helped combat the eating. I tried to make good choices, and some days it was so stinking hot and humid that I didn't really eat much, but I still ended up gaining a little weight. I'm up 2 lbs from where I was when the last Sisterhood challenge ended. 162.8. Really, not too bad. I did not log any food or drinks while we were there. It was also so hot and humid, that I always felt really swollen. I normally take my rings off every night, but I couldn't get them off the whole week. Odd. We camped while we were there, which also meant hot dogs and smores a couple times. No food in the house last night resulted in Chinese for dinner. So maybe some of that 2 lbs is actually salt and water weight. (One can always hope). I did manage to find the best crab cakes I've ever had and I even ate a steamed blue crab. Both absolutely phenom! One of the non-food highlights was visiting The National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center and getting upclose to the Space Shuttle Enterprise. This annex out at Dulles was probably our favorite place to visit and I highly recommend it if any of you are planning a trip to DC.




Now, back to the real world. It is time to get back on track and keep working on the weight loss.

I had grand plans to run this morning before taking my son to his Lego Robotics camp, but I woke up to a downpour and some thunder. I'm too much of a wuss to run in the rain, much less thunder/lightening, so I'm headed to the Y after I drop him off.

Is anybody out there?

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
