Not Quite A Hiatus

I am going out of town in the morning to an area which does not have good Internet service. Knowing this, however, I did have the foresight to create a couple of entries ahead of time which I have scheduled for each of the next two evenings I will be away. I really hope that they work and that there are no issues with posting, but if there are at least you know why! Plus, I promise that will be back on Saturday night to drop a line in person once I return home!

There are a couple of things about this little excursion which will put a crimp into my normal routine. First, I won’t be able to post my food and exercise lists as I usually do. I am planning on keeping track of what I eat and do though, so I will be sure to edit my planned posts to include them once I am back.

Another wrench in the works is that I doubt that I will have access to a scale on Saturday morning. I figure that putting my weigh-in off for twenty-four hours will not be a big deal at this point in the game, so that is what I will do. It is important to adjust to the ebb and flow of normal life in this journey, after all!

The last thing I know will be out of the ordinary - and, unfortunately, very likely bad news for my newly scheduled Sunday morning weigh-in - is that there is a very large, very sumptuous restaurant dinner planned for Friday evening. And I have no intention of missing out. Maybe that is a mistake, but I am genuinely so excited about the people I will be spending time with (all of my immediate family who were last together for my wedding), the reason we are all getting together (my brother is graduating from university), and the fact that I am getting away for a few days that I am not wanting to feel like I missed out on any part of this trip. So, I am planning on the indulgence and am ready to face whatever consequences come as a result. Of course, I am not intending to stuff myself unnecessarily! And if I feel like salad than salad I shall have! But, I pretty much know what I am going to be walking into with this meal and I intend to enjoy myself without feeling bad about it.

And I suppose that is it! I am off to try and catch a little shut eye before we head out in the morning. I hope you are all doing wonderfully and that this little corner of the web behaves itself and continues to keep you engaged while I am away! Have a wonderful couple of days!
