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.
