I'm here. Alive and well. I took a 2 week hiatus for a much needed vacation. I need to remind myself that checking out of life to relax and recharge is very important. I feel must better prepared to deal with whatever is going on in life when I do this regularly.
Firstly. The tooth is must better. Holy crap you guys, I never knew how bad that freaking tooth really was until it didn't hurt anymore. Now I just have to get a crown or a fill and all is good.
Secondly and more importantly. I AM IN ONEDERLAND!!!!!! I believe the non eating thing from the tooth got me over the hump from the 200's to the 100'. However, as Pete pointed out, that is not a good diet plan. I made ONEDERLAND on 8/23/12 and sung my happiness all over my Facebook account. And interestingly enough, even after a week of vacation and eating lots of good food and only running tiwce & walking the rest of the days...I stayed in the 100's. I was a shocked as anyone to come back to my real life last weekend and see that the scale was still under 200.
My reward for staying under 200 for a week is coming up. I'm going to get a small red heart tattoo'd on the inside of my ring finger, just where my ring naturally sits. Then I want to get some swirls tattoo'd in what they call a "white". Something that appears on my skin like this one. I want it there so I know it. but only revealed to people should I want to reveal it.
If you'd like to see my vacation or anything that tickles my photo fancy, check out my Instagram @ Instagram - Shevy. I took lots of photos and that's really how I documented my vacation. I'm obsessed with following people on Instagram. Really. I spend hours looking at the wonderful things that people can do with their phones on that app.
Today I go in for a possible fill of my band. I'm not sure what will happen, given my weight loss. I've found that I can't eat a hamburger with a bun. Something about the textures of the meat and the bun being too different makes them get stuck at the band. And banana bread gets stuck for me too. I think because it's so moist.
