Just “Eh”

<–That was the view from my hotel room in Salt Lake City. Gorgeous, isn’t it?!

It’s been one looooong week between traveling for work and then coming back and feeling slammed, so I thought since I just don’t have it in me to do a real post, that I’d leave you with these few tid-bits and a couple pics.

1) I am still over-eating and buying crap I don’t need. I”m hoping to have a good week next week.

2) In Salt Lake City, I had one of THE best meals of my life … and ate and drank and enjoyed, guilt-free. However, my stomach cannot handle rich foods and I didn’t feel so good afterwards. You live and learn; it was still worth every single bite.

3) I ran each morning — just 20 min. — to explore my surroundings. Salt Lake City was stunningly beautiful, as was Park City. No, I did not see Ryan Reynolds. But we did breathe the same air and he was at the airport Sunday just like me — could have even been the same time for all I know πŸ˜‰

4) We leave for Korea in 30 days!!! Soooooooooooooooo flipping excited.

5) I have the house to myself this weekend because my hubby went to visit his mom in Guatemala. I have nothing to do and though I miss him (we were ships in the night with me getting home so late Tues. and him leaving yesterday) I am actually looking forward to some quiet time/”me” time. Maybe I’ll read, scrapbook … whatever I feel like doing.

6) I went wayyyyy over my Points and activity points this week … and haven’t stepped on the scale since late November. That’s not how I roll typically … but in a way, I’ve felt OK even though I know that I’ll be up some. I do know how to lose when I’m ready and given my penchant for binging on Chex mix lately … clearly, I’m not ready just yet.

7) I need to adapt NO CHOICE and CHOOSE PRIDE OVER GUILT … just haven’t been doing a good job of either lately.

That said, I’m off to make breakfast-for-dinner (read as, eggs and toast) and get in a kick-ass workout. Shoveling tonight felt good, but I need some cardio too.

  1. There’s a little place in downtown SLC where I had some delicious trout and eggs. Darn I don’t remember the name. 😦 You can’t hold out on that delicious meal, though. We need the details. πŸ™‚

    That is an awesome view for a hotel room. It truly is amazing there.

    You can run for 20 minutes? Amazing. I can barely stand that long. πŸ™‚

    I’m looking forward to the blogging from Korea!

  2. Oh nice! I will detail the meal in another post — was just too tired to go into it!

    Oh I can run a lot longer than that; I used to run a lot more. But it was so cold and dark that I had to go for speed/short distance.

    Thanks! πŸ™‚

  3. You rock lissa! I am so proud of you ENJOYING the food in SLC, ad of course (we) me wants to hear from your trip to korea (in 30+ days). πŸ™‚

  4. Beautiful view. Big, rich meals can definitely do a number on the stomach if it was deliciuos than worth it. As for the overeating and buying junk–do you think maybe a few seessions with your former therapist would be helpful? Kind of like a check up. I have done that in the past. Just seems like you have been struggling with this for while now.

    1. Thanks, Lara. Well, it was a small meal (very very small portions at a very very high-end restaurant) but it was all still rich — not creamy-rich, but rich. You’re a foodie, you know what I mean! πŸ˜‰ I will share detes of the meal in my next post πŸ˜‰

      You know what’s funny is I don’t think Dr. G could help with this. I need to just say no like I have with c/s … it needs to come from me. I stepped on the scale today and am up a smidge from my last WI in November so I DO need to get a grip. It was a good enough wake-up call; trust me! But thank you πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, it is BEAUTIFUL there! Oh, does RR live in SLC?!!

    Whenever I’m traveling, I always feel less guilty about what I eat for some reason. When in Rome? πŸ™‚ I think it’s because I’m not a very adventurous eater, so if I get the chance to try something new, I TRY to do it. You are staying very active and I’m sure you enjoyed every bite of that meal. I’m SO happy you were able to enjoy it guilt-free!

  6. wow, sounds like you had a very interesting trip. i’ve never been to salt lake city, but wow, it looks beautiful!
    it’s great that you enjoyed good food. when it’s worth it, you can’t feel bad about it.
    when you are ready, you will get your game face back on.

  7. I loved this post. It’s a simple post, but it really shows how balanced and at peace you are. I feel like you truly like yourself, and you want to treat yourself well. You seem very patient with yourself, and forgiving — two things I’m always working on πŸ™‚ Hope you’re enjoying your alone time πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

    1. Kim, I love that you think I sound patient and forgiving of myself–two ways I would soooo not describe myself, but maybe I SHOULD give myself some credit there; maybe I am more patient and forgiving than I think?! πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  8. Reading each of your statements, I think it says a lot about where you are by the fact that they are just objective statements. So you did X, Y, and Z…and then you kept living and are not dwelling on every detail. That’s life!

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend πŸ™‚
