I've returned from the lovely island of Maui!
This was a family reunion rather than a true vacation, and yet I packed a lot of relaxation into the four days I spent on the island. Seeing my brother marry the love of his life was a beautiful experience, and although the photos of my not-so-svelte figure make me cringe, the captured smile on my face is a testament to the wonderful time I had.
I even had the chance to get an amazing massage at the Four Seasons spa. I'll write more about it in the coming days. I also managed to arrive home with a coconut bra and grass skirt in my suitcase. There could be hula dancing in my future.
If I never eat another chocolate-covered macademia nut, it will be too soon.
So! Back to whole grains, lean protein, lots of veggies. And water water water. I'll post this week's menu once I get my bearings. I have a feeling this is going to be a tough week of detoxing off of the sugars I consumed for the last week.
I did have the chance to talk to several members of the bride's family who have recently lost a considerable amount of weight on the South Beach Diet. They recommended the recipes - I'll be taking a look this week.
It is good to be home! I'm off to have myself an iGallop ride, and catch up on American Idol on TiVo. Hope you all are well!
