Back in the Saddle

Well, I'm back from vacation. As usual, this week will be focused on getting back into my "good" eating routines, and breaking the "bad" eating patterns I developed on vacation.

I spent the last week on Long Beach Island--a strip of land off the coast of New Jersey, in a house with my entire extended family.

What were those "bad" eating patterns?? Well, I was on vacation, so I indulged too often in restaurant meals, including breakfasts out, and dessert and sweets were involved as well, including lots of cake.

Long Beach Island is the home of the Holiday Snack Bar which makes, hands down, my all time favorite cakes. On Tuesday the family ordered in my all time favorite Holiday cake--yellow cake with marshmallow frosting to celebrate my nephew's birthday. I have to report I had two slices.

Then, on Thursday my sister and cousin brought back my cake sliced from the Holiday including chocolate cake with marshmallow frosting, and Lady Lord Baltimore cake.

All I can say is thank god the Holiday is on a small little barrier island 3 1/2 hours from my house, and only open for 2 1/2 months a year. Otherwise I'd be as big as a house.

The other bad eating habits I sunk into, just had to do with the sheer quantity of food in the house, including a bunch of "bad" foods I just don't keep in mine.

So, while I sunk into some "bad" habits last week, at least I can console myself in that they're easy to break. Eating out is expensive, the Holiday is now too far away, and I just don't buy or keep crap food in my house.

The good news is, of course, I did a ton of exercise last week. Long walks on the beach, bike riding and yoga. I also practiced Tai Chi every day along with my new physical therapy exercises for my shoulder.

It's nice to be back home.
