party animal

I had two parties and houseguests this weekend, so I am totally exhausted. Even houseguests as pleasant as the ones that we had are an interruption in the normal routine, so sleep and food habits get bumped around a bit. We had some extra restaurant meals, too, because we wanted to show that our little boring town had some very fun ethnic food options. Besides, it meant that I had an excuse to eat some really great Lebanese and Bulgarian food. We even discovered a great new restaurant.

I was glad to get to spend some time with family and to play hostess, even if exercise, rest, and food restriction took a bit of a backseat. Remind me of this if I start complaining about a bad weigh-in on Tuesday, okay? At least, thanks to the weight loss, I wasn't scrambling to get in the back row when family photos were taken.


  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean about hiding in the back row when photos are taken! In big group photos, I still haven't gotten out of that habit and I think I still pose awkwardly in small group photos, like I'm trying to make my collar bones really prominent so no one will notice the rest of me! hah!

    I'm glad you had such a great weekend!

  2. Feeling okay about photo shoots with family is something to look forward to. I am not there yet but it is getting a little better. Sounds like a nice weekend. I'm sure you will recover from any weight impact.

  3. I am kind of dreading my weigh-in tomorrow...although all things considered 9we also hosted a family cookout/get together this weekend)...I think I did fabulous in watching what I ate.

  4. Relatives begin arriving here in July, all of July. And then all of August. I am freaked out about doing the intuitive eating around them. They will think I have fallen off the wagon. I shouldn't care so much but two solid months of company has me about spastic. Maybe I'll send them all to hotels...
