I am back!

Vacation is over (so is vacation relaxation and eating mode)! I'm still in the midst of catching up from 11 days away from email, work, life, etc. but am on my way to "normal".  After 4 days of running (more on that later), little sleep and theme parks we spent a week relaxing on a cruise. Along with that went wine and lots of great food, thank you Royal Caribbean for making so many wonderful gluten free options! It was wonderful to travel for the first time in years and not worry abot the safety of the food! When I asked what was gluten free, I was given many options and told with advance notice they would adapt almost anything on the menu. I think I ate more bread last week than I have in years. I did manage a workout most days but nothing to make up for the eating. It was a great relaxing, refueling week after running Dopey!

Now we are back, refrigerator is fully stocked with healthy food again and I am less than 3 months from Boston Marathon, so time to get serious! So far so good on my return...2 early morning workouts so far and even 1 double! Runs have been short, I think I am in the what if mode. I need my leg to be good but am afraid it won't be. Plus after 11 days of 70+ degrees here I sit at home with wind chills of -40F!! Only option lately is the treadmill. Now to find the motivation to get there. What are your tricks to get back to healthy eating/fitness after time off?

O's frog cupcake!

  5. One of my best friends has a wheat allergy, and she said the same thing about the cruise! She said she had never eaten so much bread in her life, just because she hadn't had it in years. It's so nice that society is adapting to incorporate everyone's eating needs :)

    Usually, I feel blah and chunky when I've been off the wagon for too long...so that's definitely motivation for me to get moving again!

  6. What a great trip! It's hard to get back into the swing of things after vacation. I usually am motivated by how yucky I feel after bad eating and less than stellar workouts. Good luck!
