I'm Back!

Hi everyone!
I'm back from my California vacation! How did I do? I did ok. The first half of the week, I counted all my points. I did very well with making healthy choices, I was working out in the fitness center at least every other day. The days I didn't were days we were out and walking all day long.

Then I started slipping a little. Not a lot. I stopped counting all my points the last half of the week. I was still trying to make the best decisions I could "most" of the time, but definitely didn't track all my meals. I'm not going to stress about it. It is what it is!

The last day I got up at 6:00 am to go hike in the Hollywood Hills. A ton of people work out there. I was just going to walk but some people walk and some run! I don't know how the runners do it! Well, I had a nice 1 hour and 20 min hike. But when I got back to the hotel, after about another hour, I noticed all these "bite marks" on my arms and legs. They are all over my arms and legs!

I was concerned. Is it poison ivy? Most of the hills had no grass or weeds. Only 1 section had something I had to brush past. Is it insect bites? How is that possible? They are all over! I was toying with going to an urgent care today (since it's Sunday) but didn't want to go if I don't need to. I went to a pharmacist and asked him. He said that if it doesn't spread and it doesn't have red lines going through it, then I should be fine. I'm just really mad about it! I look like I have leprosy! I'm very self conscious!

I'll just post a few pictures right now. I'll fill you in more on vacation in later posts.

Picture #1: Me with Matt Damon's Star, I love Matt Damon!
Picture #2: Me and Tony horseback riding in the Hollywood Hills
Picture #3: Me and Tony at Venice Beach! The waves were huge that day!
Picture #4: Eggplant parmasen. The eggplant was not breaded (good!) but it was cheesy (bad). This meal was excellent!
Picture #5: From the house of Blues. Rosemary Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans. I ate half of the chicken, all the mashed potatoes and half the green beans.

Have a great day!

    Wow, I don't know what those bug bites could be? Hopefully it will go away soon!

    Sounds like you had a great time, can't wait to read more about it - and yes, that is way too much cheese with the eggplant! :D
