I never knew how much I appreciated "normal".
We had Casey's funeral on August 5th, in California.
(Me with all my siblings and my Dad)It was therapeutic to see family, and to have closure to this tragedy.
On the way up from California, we spent a couple days at the Belagio in Las Vegas, to celebrate our anniversary (a little early).When we got back home, we visited with my Brother-in-Law, who was in town...
Then we celebrated our actual anniversary...And then we spent the week with my nephew, Caleb, who came up to visit after his father's funeral.
Busy. Busy. Busy.
This past week I've finally felt like life has slowly returned to normal.
I've cooked, and cleaned, and simply laid in bed and watched TV. Because I could.
During the past (crazy) month, I took a vaca from my diet. It was kinda annoying to me that amidst all the craziness of finding my brother, and making funeral arrangements, I was still obsessed with calories, and losing weight. I mean, seriously? I had just lost my brother, and the majority of my thoughts were still on, "I wonder how many calories are really in that donut?" I just wanted to take a break from it all. There is more to life then just calories and pant sizes.
And when I say vaca, I mean like no healthy thoughts entered my mind. I wasn't even trying to have the "balance" that I believe so strongly in.
Since Monday, I have been slowly trying to work in things like fruits and veggies...and things of the non-fried variety. Oh and water. Hello water! My body seriously did miss you. I still need to get my chunky butt back to the gym, and I am still horrified to step on the scale. I'm guessing I gained a good 10 pounds during my month long vaca.
It is good to be back to my :Deliciously Healthy life, and to bloggin' all about it.
THANK YOU for all of your support!
I heart you more then chocolate.
