Things Don't Always Happen As Planned

Hello world!

It felt great to take a break from the blog and engage in a bit of a tech detox. I had planned to spend time surfing, golfing, and generally relaxing over the last few weeks and had several days off from the day job. Unfortunately, things don't always happen the way that we plan them.

So not to bore you with every detail, my vacation ended up being one that I spent mostly bedridden and quite ill. It started on a Sunday night and was really bad. Last Tuesday, I attempted to go surfing but was too wobbly and weak. I did get in one really great vacation day in the midst of the horrible ones. Last Wednesday hubby and I walked 9 (a longer with many par 4s) and then played 5 games of bowling right after. Loved it! Other than that I've been in bed trying to get better. Fortunately there was good stuff to watch on TV over the holiday and I caught Jaws more than once (I never tire of that movie). I'm definitely on the mend now and taking it easy until I am completely recovered. To assure that there isn't a relapse I'm working in my jammies from my bed for the next two days.

Even though I was sick I didn't throw away all the work I have done with my TTUC fitness goals. No junk food or cheating from this girl. I definitely feel good about that.

The plan for the rest of the week is to recover completely and then concentrate on my blog revamping ideas. I've toyed with a few different formats but honestly may not make many changes. I'm torn.

Stay tuned.

What is it with vacations and bloggers lately? I hope you're feeling better.

Thanks Mike, everyone needs a vacation now and then! Aren't you in FL right now yourself?

Glad you got some time off. Too bad you were sick, but at least that forced you to rest. Hope you are feeling better.

How do you keep yourself from eating junk food? I eat healthy food AND junk food.

Thanks Lindsay!

As for junk food, I am one of those lucky people that never developed a taste for it. Even as a child I wasn't a big fan of soda and candy. Potato chips and cookies just aren't my thing either. These days, I really like to see all of my ingredients and taste the food. My biggest "junk" is beer, and that isn't even all that often.

It's scarily easy to get used to being lazy when injuries drag on. I'm very impressed at u staying away from the junk food - that kills me when there's no running to distract from the chocolate in the fridge!

Hey Niamh, welcome!

Yeah, I am incredibly fortunate to be missing the chocolate gene somehow.

Well you're lucky you don't have the sweet tooth I have!
