My first official announcement-- I weighed in this morning after a weekend of travel/no scale, and I am in Onederland!
This was a somewhat unexpected development because I was not the best eater while traveling. I indulged in calorie-laden Starbucks in the airport, ate some cheesecake (I was in Philly after all!), had fried spring rolls for dinner one night and horrible airport food-court Chinese food another (lo-mein and another fried egg roll). This all still might catch up with me with a short rebound in a few days but I don't care. I saw the 198.2!
What I had PLANNED to blog about today were the NSV's of my trip. First, the dreaded airplane seat belt! I don't think I fully realized what a mental issue this was for me before until traveling without the extra anxiety. It was blissful not to have to worry, or to have to travel with my arms crossed over my chest because I didn't want to spill over into someone else's space, or to feel bruised on my thighs from the seat dividers where they pushed in.
I have to say that being able to travel with my arms relaxed at my sides instead of crossed over my chest was the best-- even better than the seat belt victory.
Finally, I got hit on at the hotel bar. I was sitting by myself, having a drink and dinner, and a guy came over and struck up a conversation. Said he was from L.A. scouting for locations for a movie shoot. In my head, I was thinking, "porn?" but I didn't say it. I was so awkward, I hadn't flirted in ages. Immediately after we parted ways I texted my husband, all giggly. It was fun.
All in all, I've had a great couple of days. Thank you band!
