i *heart* mondays

Not much on the bliggity blog this morning because we just got back from a lovely vacation in San Diego and I have about 300 pictures to edit for your viewing pleasure tomorrow. (I'll narrow that down at least by half, I promise *wink*)

But just wanted to mention that in July I finally got my butt in gear diet-wise and ended up losing 9 pounds of the 11 I had gained back in May and June. Boo for the gain, yay for the loss. So I'm down 19 for the year.

Interestingly enough, that was all from diet changes alone, as I only exercised maybe 4 times total. Who can exercise in this heat, number one, and number two, I have a hard time exercising alone evidently. Both the Turbo Jam and CrossFit groups have gone on hiatus this summer. My treadmill calls to me each night, but I give it a twinkie and it shuts up happily after that.

Anyway, speaking of the vacation, I was super careful about what I ate, and I think this is the first vacation in history in which I lost a couple of ounces instead of gaining weight. Go me!

Tomorrow you'll hear all about it. Happy Monday, everybody!

Way to go Amie on the 19 lbs. We are going to San Diego soon. What did you do while you were there? We got the Hyatt for $92 a night on Priceline.
