Good happy morning!! I know those words don’t really go together and people out there who are obsessed with grammar are very unhappy with that sentence, but I’m still writing it! No need to email me about my poor writing skills. Because I’m over here happy as a clam, waking up in my own bed and now on the couch with my dog while I type up this post! I am one happy panda when I am home to my two favorite guys and our little house! I absolutely loved being in Austin, but being home is definitely my favorite place to be. A part of me still wants to live in Austin, but after experiencing 4 days of 102 degrees with full humidity, that will only happen if we are ever able to afford a lake house. Because I don’t know what else I would do there. Other than eat…which is all I did all weekend.
So obviously Austin is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s buzzing, they have amazing restaurants, the people are awesome – it’s just the best. The problem is the humidity would take a bit to get use to, especially in the summer. And after being there over the weekend, I can tell that if I moved there, I would have to get my life together and not just eat then sit inside all day. Because that’s all I seemed to do. Eat, eat, quick workout, then eat some more. I was definitely carrying a bit of water weight yesterday and not feeling my best. But sometimes, vacations take over your life a little bit.
But for me, I’m never getting those days and experiences back, so I’m not upset about the choices I made. I’m just back on the healthy choices train now that I’m back at home! I’m pounding water, I’m making simple healthy meals, I’m staying away from sugar, and I’m back to my regular workouts. So in no time flat, I can get back to feeling like myself again…so I can hop on a yacht in the Caribbean and play this game all over again. Even with an extremely busy week and a half before I leave for the Caribbean, I’m making sure that I’m still fitting in my workouts and taking care of myself before I leave!
My point is – enjoy your vacations, enjoy the little moments and enjoy every bite. Then get right back to the habits that help you feel your best and make you thrive! Try not to see those little moments on vacations are regretful decisions. Instead see them as time you will never get back so they were enjoyed in the best way possible. And today, set the tone for the week and get after your goals right away! Today is going to be awesome! I can feel it!
