Just a bit ago, I said goodbye to Brent at the airport before he left for Utah. I seriously did NOT want to let him go... I have such a lump in my throat. So much for feeling strong. I haven't felt as tempted to just curl up with a bunch of high carby foods and eat my way into a forgetful bliss in a long time...
It reminds me of 25 years ago when I said goodbye to him when he left to serve his 2 year mission for our church. That was the hardest day of my life - and we weren't even married yet! This won't be two years but.... just a little dejavu feeling.
BUT - we had a wonderful day yesterday at the coast! Stayed in a fabulous house... and the sky was sunny, the beach beautiful (still cold 'cause it's Oregon), hit the outlet stores, dinner and games with friends, hot tub! It was pretty wonderful!
I got a new hat.
AND - I avoided all this junk food at the Beach Retreat! I'm pretty sure I was the only one... but that's okay, I shared my knox blox and zucchini chips and had a great time! And I have to give credit to several sisters who DID bring healthy snacks... see the salad and there was a veggie tray and nuts. It was actually healthier foods than our last retreat!!
Yay me... I stayed on plan. I don't know if I lost any weight this week, though. I will weigh in tomorrow. Got lots to do and focus on... I will try not to be a wimp w/ the hubs not here. I already miss the guy!! Will be hugging my pillow tight tonight. Life is good!
