Holy cow…what a rain delay!

So I have been working out all summer….honest, even though I have not been posting about it here.
I have lost about 10 pounds give or take, and feel a bit stronger. I have however been away from the gym for 14 days on vacation…..wow talk about to much!

To much salt
To much carbs
To much alcohol

I am bloat city right now, I can see it in my face and belly…..
I refuse to even get near the scale for at least 2 weeks, it would just bum me out. I know that I probably have minimal fat gain, mostly water so what good would stepping on doom do for me. Just gonna get back in the gym and sweat!

Yes again, another bbq!
I know I am not the only person on the planet faced with a bbq or 2 on the summer weekends. I did not do too bad this time around. I had a couple chicken and pepper kebabs and a small rib.
Very few chips, and some rice.
It was a good time and we played wii fit the whole night, so there was some balance. Some good food and some activity!
It is hilarious to see the boys hula hoop 🙂
Today I went to the gym and got my fitness on. I pushed out some cardio, but ended up with a headache after I was done, so I skipped the weights.
Feeling pretty good with myself, 3 workouts in a row!
I think the gym is where I will head on the weekends from now on. Now that the husband is home, I can get a nice break from the him and the kids and work on myself.
