Following up....

I weighed in this morning, and I was up a bit, but still within my window..... WHEW! I was a bit surprised, since I was about 3 pounds lower than that amount just yesterday morning. But I had sauerkraut last night... DOH! Sodium!

Today, I went to a local orchard to pick up Honeycrisps -- one of my favorite types of apples! They also had Asian pears available, as well as peaches. Apparently, the peach season is running a little long this year; fine by me! I love peaches! Whenever I go to the grocery, the Asian pears are usually pretty huge, and in the past, I'd split them in half. These, however, are a little smaller -- and boy, are they ever juicy! Yummo!!!

This week, traveling presented some interesting challenges: airsickness, "cocktail hour" (without the cocktails but with the appetizers), and trying to choose the best options possible when dining out. I am proud to say that I did the best job I possibly could, and felt very good about my choices. But even better, I worked out both mornings - it wasn't my full workout, but it was something, and I was very pleased with the exercise facilities at both hotels! A few places I've stayed have something like 2 treadmills and a few dumbbells. Both of these had plenty of cardio equipment, as well as weights, both free and machine. WOW!

I'm going to stick with Simply Filling for a while. I like it, and so far, it seems to be working well to help me maintain (which is what I've asked for all along). And it's easier than I expected to plan my week's meals around the plan's specifications. So this week, I am sticking with it, sticking with my workout plans, and trying to stress less too! :D (Okay, that last one is a pipe dream.....)
