1. The Bitch (me), back from Cancun.
2. The Bitch (weight), back up to 180.
A week of all-inclusive vacation bliss was awesome~! Thanks for the recommendation for the Blanc Martini too... that was freakin' delicious. I recommend the Riu Cancun resort for anyone looking to vacation in Cancun. The staff was fantastic and friendly, the pools are wonderful and the beach was gorgeous.
I will say, with regret, that I'm back up to 180 as of this morning. It's not period weight, it's not an overdose of sodium... it's pure and solid weight gain. I haven't been 180 since November of last year. That means I've (sort of) maintained my weight over the last six months but... actually I've been on a slow and steady up and sort of down, and sort of up again +2 lbs per month-ish trend since January. I was down to 167.6 on January 15th, so it took me two months to lose those 12 pounds, and 4 months to gain them back. Ugh!
So... what was I doing to lose those 12 pounds? I went back in time and realized it was the lower calorie eating I did.
I have slacked on the Eat.Stop.Eat program, and the resort situation put a major dent in those efforts. I couldn't NOT eat for 24 hours on this trip. I still really think that it could work really well for me, so I'd like to give it another solid go-round.
I'm stocked with a ton of salad at the house, but I need to go shopping. Need staples like chicken, frozen veggies and some other healthy goods.
Also, a quick note, my friend Beth over at the B.E.T.H. Approach is doing her first giveaway, so you should go check it out!
