This week I learned

I'm baaaaaaack....... and little hungover.  So, we arrived home on Friday night and it feels so good to be home, 2 straight days in a U-haul just plain sucks.  We made really good time though I have to say, I was impressed.  I snacked and snacked and snacked the whole way... fug.  My parents don't arrive home till next wednesday so its not the same here without them.  Went to a bbq/party last night at my cousins which turned into a large party and I indulged... one again..  Why do I do this to myself?  lol.  It was amazing seeing everyone though and so many people commented on how much weight I've lost and how good I look. Ahhhh I love my peeps.  It was truely the best feeling in the world, not to mention how happy I am to be back in CANADA!! Woohoooo. 
So, I intended to write a lesson learned for each day and I know I had some good ones but I've forgotten them..  I should have wrote them down but things are just too disorganized in my life right now. 
However here are a few things I've learned in the last few days ~
... that my boyfriend is a trooper, he drove the whole way and didn't complain once...  unless he just needed to stretch. 
... that Veganaise is better than reg mayo...  I shit you not.
... that I really really missed my blog and blog peeps.
... that grocery shopping a day before Easter is a huge mistake. 
... that Lentil & Bean patties are delish!!!  I have to say every meat alternative I have tried I love more than the meat alternative.  Wow.
I know there's more but my head hurts to much to think right now.
The weather is absolutely gor-jess here this weekend and I went for a beautiful run on my favorite trail along the river, it felt so good to be running back in nature.  Soon I'll start pushing myself further and explore some new trails.. can't wait.  Oh and my grandmother told me that there was a coyote spotted on my trail so be careful.... wth?!?!?! 
I am rejoining WW this friday.. yikes..  I've been trying to get back on plan this week but I haven't weighed myself in a week and I'm scared to death.  Hopefully it won't be too bad but I'll let you know the damage once I can face it.  Alright now I'm going to watch Jamie Oliver's (aka my boyfriend) Food Revolution..  I have it recorded and I'm excited.    Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I intend to spend some time tonight catching up on all of your blogs.  So I'll see you then.. lol.  Good to be back!!!

Welcome back! You learned a lot!

Don't stress over the past week, you will get your bearings. Wasn't it fun to get all of those compliments?

When you wake up tomorrow, I predict your hangover will be gone. Sleep and be well!
