Getting the show on the road...
Today I spent the entire day packing. The amount of things I packed in somewhat ridiculous, and I feel like I could pack more if I had more room! Over the next two days I will be driving from Florida to Maine with my husband and kids. I LOVE Maine. You should too. There are so many great things about summer in Maine. It's not nearly as miserable as summer in Florida. Even without air conditioning, the heat is not uncomfortable. We don't have a set plan, but over the next 7 weeks we will spend our time relaxing, reading, swimming, exploring, hiking, and again, relaxing. My mom and three of my sisters live in Maine so it is a wonderful thing to be able to go and stay for such an extended visit. I haven't seen them in 2 years, and miss them like crazy, so I cannot WAIT to get there!
I weighed in today and I have not lost of gained any weight since the end of my mamavation campaign. I am not surprised, I have continued eating healthy food everyday and making sure I am getting my exchanges in, but I have slacked a bit when it comes to my workouts. Instead of getting 6 in per week I've been getting in 3. With the kids home from school and getting ready for our trip I am not disappointed by this at all. I'm just glad I did not see a gain! I expect that while we are away I will lose a couple pounds as that has always happened in the past, we tend to be very active outside and not stuck indoors like we are here. Although, I will say, if we were not going to Maine this summer I think I would have been better about making an effort to get outdoors more this summer, I'm not pregnant, and no one is a baby anymore! So the only excuse I have is I don't like the heat, and that's pretty lame! My goal for this next week is just to arrive safely, unpack, and get settled and enjoy my family!
