August-- the month of beginnings!! Summer's coming to a close, and it's time to refocus!
I put on a whopping 8lbs while in Ireland, though I've lalready lost 3 of them since Wednesday. Fruits & veggies were scarce in the diet, I was actually craving salads when we went out for lunch!! But boy did I enjoy the food -LoL- I did quite a bit of shopping there, and refused to go 'one more size'; some things are a little on the tight side- incentive, right??
For some reason I didn't walk as much as I typically do when there. Could have been all the rain though.... I'm getting out those Leslie tapes and starting them up again. Like Nike... I'm just gonna "do it"!!
