Back to blogging, back from vacation, and back on the healthy eating train.
I got back from my vacation on Thursday, and after a week of poor eating (or rather, deliciously decadent eating), but with tons of walking and a 5k on Castaway Cay (Seriously. My phone's pedometer was going nuts every day!). I call that pretty even. Plus, for breakfast two of the five mornings of vacation I had oatmeal.

But now that vacation is over, and it's November, time to go back, remember how tired I'm feeling because of lack of quality, nutrient dense food, and water the last couple weeks, and I know that to get through these next two months of holidays, I need to take care of myself with adequate sleep, food, and exercise.
That's why I'm implementing No Excuse November. I am making a goal to exercise at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes, track all of my food, and get more fruits and veggies in.
I'm even considering giving Diet Bet another go. Just a quick 4 Week Kickstart to get my butt in gear for the holidays. If I succeed, I get my $25 back. I hate losing money.
