Weigh in (8/1) + Where I've Been

Hi! Remember me? Before I talk about where I've been, here's my weigh in from last Saturday:

Um, SIX pounds?!? I knew my gains for the last three weeks had to be mostly water, and it looks like I finally got rid of it all! This is why it's so important just to trust the (weight watchers) plan--if you're gaining despite staying within your points, just stick with it; your body WILL respond eventually! 

So now, where have I been? Completely off the grid, that's where! Every year, my boss takes all the employees and their families on a vacation to Florida; we arrived on Sunday and head home tomorrow (Wednesday). There are 13 employees, and it's a great time for us all to fellowship and spend time away from the office and get to know the families. This year is the 26th year they've done the trip; 7 people have been with the company over 20 years, and several are headed toward the ten year mark. 

Anyway, I had great intentions of blogging more while we were here, but the wifi is pretty crappy and I've been exhausted from being out in the sun all day. Speaking of which, I wore my bikini and I totally ROCKED it! Honestly, I had no intention of wearing it in front of my coworkers, but yesterday when I was getting ready, I thought, "What the hell? What's the worst that could happen? It's not like anyone's faces are going to melt off from seeing me in a bikini." So I wore it, and I can honestly say I felt pretty damn good in it! I even got compliments from 2 of my coworkers' wives. 

So that's where I've been. I haven't taken a single picture, read a single blog, I've hardly been on Facebook, and it's been amazing just enjoying this trip and living fully in every moment. 

P.S. Love Your Body Tuesday will be on Wednesday!
