Live from the beach!

This year the trip head been awesome... And it's only the first full day of our trip!

Yesterday, the ELB and I detoured sightly off the route to meet Hollee Alexandria! I would do a link here but I'm stupid and my phone hates me). It was so great to meet with someone who had been such an inspiration in my journey... And who has turned into a friend along the way!

Based on her suggestion, we visited a store called Southern Season... And OMG... It was AMAZING. We could have spent all day there, but as it was we spent about 2 hours there. And spent more money than we planned. But it was awesome. And we will be back.

We rolled into Myrtle Beach at sunset (see picture). We got to the condo, unloaded the car, then went out to get groceries. I picked up some things to make a pot of high protein chili (to assist with my detox process). After dinner we chilled out, and went to bed by 11!

I woke up at 7am, and snapped a picture of the sunrise (see picture) before stumbling back to bed and more sleep.

After a lazy afternoon, the ELB and I went on a three mile beach walk.

Now we are back, I just made the ELB some brinner (waffles and bacon) and now we are going to indulge in another guilty pleasure ...CABLE television.

Tomorrow, we don't have locked in plans, but we do have things that we want to do while here including day trips to Charleston and Columbia, a trip to the outlets, and alot more walks on the beach!

Have a happy weekend!

Happy holidays

I've been bad. So so bad. Since my unfill, I've gained 17 lbs so I'm back at 345. I'm really disappointed in myself, but I know what I need to do.

We leave for the beach Friday. And I'm planning a sugar detox. Lots of water. Lots of walking. Lots of sleep.

I will not buy junk.  I plan to eat healthy.

I also have tendonitis in my right arm. Not fun. I'm going to use this time to hopefully rehab that back to normal.

Happy holidays to you all. I hope to start 2015 on a healthy(ier). foot.

Getting there

I've been slowly losing the 15 lbs that I packed on after my unfill. I'm about halfway there to my lowest adult weight. It helps that Donny has restriction when it's cold.

I was scheduled for a fill on 12/12 but I called and cancelled today. I have restriction. I'm exercising. I'm losing the "i forgot what it felt like to eat without pb'ing" pounds. Why mess with a good thing?

I did reschedule for January just so that I can be on the calendar, but I'll see where I am with weightloss after vacation and decide from there.

My unfill was denied by insurance. I told my surgeons office what they needed to do to make sure it was paid and they told me that I was wrong and that there wouldn't be an issue. If they try to bill me for the visit, I'll fight it. I emailed them and talked to them on the phone prior to coming in and explained what the insurance company wanted and they chose to ignore me. They will have to write it off.

Yeah I'm in that kind of mood. But I did yoga tonight and then hit Sam's club for healthy lunch food. Yay me. Dinner is water and deli ham. Woot.

Until next time!
