Saturday morning we got up early and hit the beach. We went for walks, swam, and spent time reading under the shade of our umbrella. It was a great day. I was even brave enough to take a picture in my swimsuit.
I tried to find a pic to compare, but no surprise, finding one of me in a suit was hard. I'm very good at avoiding the camera. Here's the two I did find.
I spent some time picking up shells. It struck me how each one is so different, but they are essentially the same in so many ways. Each one is pretty in it's own way. Not unlike us as people.

After dinner we drove out to the end of the island near where the big ships pass through and took some pics of sunset.
Yesterday it was back to work. I headed in with a great attitude for a Monday. It's amazing what a little time away will do for your outlook. I weighed in and I was the same as last week. I find that a decent achievement for a trip. This morning I'm down a pound and I'm dedicated to get that scale to budge and get back off that steroid gain I had from 2 weeks ago.
The office was chaos yesterday. Really crazy with lots of complicated problems. Patients showing up with what seemed like simple issues, but turning out to be complex ones. Hate that. So my lunch time workout got scrubbed for work. Last night I went home and swam laps for 40 minutes. Felt good and it was hard with my breathing issues. But, a good workout nonetheless. I had to give up and use the kick board for part of it so I could breathe. I woke up this morning and I was actually a little sore. My calories yesterday were 1008. I was hungry last night. I really wanted to snack late, but instead I ate a sugar free jello and drank more water. Gotta remember that will power is really just a simple choice.
Today I've had my breakfast shake and coffee and tons of water. TKD class in the works for noon. I'm hoping that between being off the steroids, back on track with the diet, exercise and back on lots of water, I can get the scale to head back down. Plus, I'm back on the thyroid meds so hopefully that issue will be straightened out. At least my energy level is starting to improve back on the meds.
I need some new suggestions for veggies. Any new ideas? I'm just getting bored with my veggies. I love them lots, but I'd like some new ideas. I'm really trying to include more of them. Give me some new ideas. I'll be reading and commenting as usual today. Can't wait to see what all of you are up to. You guys really help keep me going! Have a great day!
