This Month and Toronto in a Nutshell

This month has been a crazy-busy month for me. I've been pretty much non-stop. I don't know where October went. As I wrote a couple of blogs ago, my mother-in-law came to visit for a week. Then, I had a little bit of time to recoup and pack-up for Cananda. I was there for 10 days. My friend, Emily and her family picked me up on their way from Tampa, FL and we drove straight through. I was there for my friends' (Stephanie [Emily's sister] and Peter's) wedding. Which, by the way, was BEAUTIFUL! I'm beyond happy for them.

Toronto was a world of its own. It's HUGE and there is so much to see and do. Lord willing, I definitely want to visit again sometime next year.

I met some new friends, which is always nice and I danced at the wedding like there was no tomorrow. I was literally the last one on the dance floor. I was telling my friends I was trying to burn as many calories as I could. LOL! I know I burned a lot, too. I was sweaty and my legs are still really sore. That and walking around Toronto was about the only exercise I got in Cananda.

I never got a chance to post a blog to tell you all that I was leaving, so I'm sorry that I'd been MIA for a while. I'm here now. :-)

I got in today around 11:30 in the morning. As soon as I got home, I unpacked and showered. I'm so very tired. I took a little nap but Brad woke me up at 8:30 so I wouldn't be wide awake at 2 AM.

I never had a chance to take pictures or post a weight-loss blog today. I'm just going to skip this month and then continue at the end of next month. I will say, I gained weight ... 6.4 lbs this month, to be exact. It's REALLY hard not to when you can't go to the gym for over half of the month and you're around a bunch of Greeks (Peter's family) who love to eat. I made a lot of good decisions but I also made a lot of bad ones. I take full blame for my weight gain. I'm really looking forward to getting back to business starting tomorrow: gym, eating better, eating less, etc.

I feel like poo. I can tell just from my pictures that I gained weight. My face looks so puffy. Ugh. I'm super embarrassed and ashamed but I share this because this is part of the journey. I obviously still have some food issues and I'm still learning. I'm not going to set a goal for next month but I would like to lose AT LEAST what I gained this month, plus some. I think I'll lose what I gained pretty fast because I don't eat that kind of food or that much at home. Plus, of course, the gym.

So, I guess that about sums up October for me. I'm super happy to be home and to be with Brad and Oopsie again but I already miss my friends.  Brad tells me that I sound Canadian now because I'm ending everything on an up-note. It doesn't take me long to pick up accents, apparently. :-P

Here are a few pictures from my trip to Toronto ...
