Happy September and Happy Labor Day!
I am spending the week with family in Illinois and it has been super relaxing so far. I went to a family BBQ in Gary, IN this afternoon and it was wonderful to see so many family members. Many of them I hadn’t seen since my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary in 2014.
One of the best things about being in the Midwest is it isn’t 100+ degrees outside! When I left California, we were in the middle of a heat advisory, and now there are wildfires burning out of control.
Tomorrow my aunt is taking me to her fitness center so we can both get a workout in. I brought workout clothes with me but wasn’t really going to try too hard to get a workout in so this will be nice. When I go to my grandma’s house later this week, I can walk around her property.
Once I return to California I will really have to buckle down with portions and watching what I eat. Over the last couple months I’ve been bingeing every weekend and it definitely shows on the scale. I wish I could be one of those people who hides their scale but I need to see the number each week just to keep me motivated. I’ve started over so many times, sometimes I wonder why I even bother. Things were going so well during this time last year and now they’re not. But, all I can do is keep trying.
Have a good week!
