Post vacation blahs

by Nina10 on 13 Jul 2013, 16:22

Back to the real world. I had a wonderful 4 week European trip! Amazing and lots of food. My first night home I had gained 9 lbs! But it turned out to be a lot of water retention. My legs were swelled up from 24 hours of flights. So by the next morning I had dropped 5 lbs! wow and my legs looked normal. My stomachs been funny this first week home and haven't felt up to fasting/repairing. So today is my first fast in about 6 weeks. I want to lose those 5 lbs and get back to where I was before vacation.

Also, now that it is summer time, my 13 year old daughter is home and might notice that I'm not eating. I don't want her to worry about weight, so I'm trying to hide this diet from her.

I'm in the dumps because my vacation is over and I need to distract myself. Plan to go watch the hubby in a Kitesurfing race for cancer today. Just feeling sorry for myself. Get over it already!

Here's to a successful repair day.
