I don't know if I should start out labeling, or numbering, my activities for each day, because I know there's now way that I'll be able to maintain this sort of thing, at least not after I find an RN job (sending good Karmic waves out there!), but why not attempt to start out right, right?
So today was my first trip back from a truly wonderful vacation. As a graduation present, my family went on a 10-day Mediterranean cruise, followed by 11 days touring Spain. It was really a wonderful experience, but a tad bit on the long side. Not that I'm ungrateful, or want anyone to think I'm complaining, but 24 days is a LONG time to be gone, especially when you're sharing rooms with your parents at the age of 26.
So today was my first full day back to my normal life. I woke up at 4 am (thank you jet lag!) and created this blog. I figured I'd get a jump start on this new step in my life.
I also began researching "Clean Eating." I think this is exactly what I need -- especially after approximately 24 days of "binge eating" all the fabulous foods I came across while in Europe, including a chocolate croissant every morning for breakfast...but that's another store all together.
So this evening, I spent about an hour strolling through the local Whole Foods picking out fresh produce and reading nutrition labels. I've learned a lot by reading Tiffany's site, The Gracious Pantry, and think that others who are interested in Clean Eating could benefit by reading some of her stuff.
Oh, and today was also my first day back to the gym; coupled with my first session with my personal trainer in close to a month. All I can say is that I am going to HURT tomorrow!! But I know it'll be worth it. I have to lose the pound I gained on vacation, plus about another 10-15, and I know that working out and eating clean will not only help me feel better, but they will also help me accomplish my goals. Carpe Diem, right?
