Not too bad a day considering I went out for lunch and dinner and had a beer at Trivia night. Today I am planning to eat all my meals at home and get my walk in, so that should be good. I have a busy weekend and the worst for my weight loss will be brunch on Sunday for my friend's birthday. But I will probably indulge a bit and maybe try to get a longer walk in! :wink:

It's amazing that I can be so busy and stressed over summer vacation. I have so much to do and having trouble getting into a routine and fitting it all in. Hopefully I will get there soon! I am doing good with my eating window and walking and keeping my sugar down, but struggling a bit with calories/carbs.

Today I'm going to see my friend and her daughter who was hit by the car. She is home now and doing well, so it will be good to see her. Tonight I've been invited to the high school graduation party of one of my former students. I'm very honored to have been invited. It's the first time I've ever been invited to someone's party. I do think it will be a little awkward though, since I won't really know anyone except the graduate and his mother. (There's another teacher I think would have been invited but I believe she is out of the country.) I am hoping that maybe a couple of my other former students will be there too. Anyway I'll just go for a little while. But I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit in my walk today or what I'll be eating!
Good to hear that your friend's daughter has recovered enough to go home - that will be a relief. Much nicer at home!

Hopefully there will be some people you know at the graduation party - but even if not, as you say, how lovely to be invited, no doubt as recognition of the positive influence you were on the young man's life,

And getting into a routine when on holiday can be harder than when you have the structure of work - best wishes for getting done the things you want to, but do have some relaxing time as well and enjoy the break. :smile: :clover:
Thanks @Sassy1 - trust me, I'm relaxing plenty, that's part of the problem. But since I work 2 jobs during the year and am always tired, I need to take advantage of this time to get things done. But, I have a lot of social activities and other things on my schedule as well. Again, part of the "problem"! I did manage to get my walk in. My friend's mom lives near the beach and even though I wasn't in my "walking" clothes, I decided I could at least get some sort of walk in. So I had a fairly leisurely 2 mile walk in. Now I have to get ready for the party! The good news is I probably won't eat much, since I won't be comfortable enough to do so!! :grin:

I didn't track my food yesterday, but I'm sure it was much too high in carbs and sugar. And I only got a short walk in. Today is not going to be much better, since I'm going out to brunch, which is a buffet. Later I'm going to visit my mom who is in the state at my brother's house. So I need to find time to get my walk in! Maybe this evening.
