I hope everyone’s been doing great the last two weeks. It’s time to do a pretty big catch-up. I have no idea where to start. I guess I will start with vacation.
I pretty much smiled every time I go on a ride. I didn’t need anyone to help me push the brackets in. While I didn’t go on the Hulk, I did a few things for the first time and loved them, it was a great trip. I love Florida. It’s nice to go somewhere close and feel some heat. I could definitely see myself retiring there someday.
The Hagrid roller coaster was phenomenal and Halloween horror nights was great. I cannot believe it I was up almost 36 hours and maned up on that first day like a maniac. But we did it.
We had Amazon prime drop off booze and snacks and just had a good time. I definitely felt the sugar in my body, but did not worry about it too much.
So what do you think happened when I got home? I am not someone who is afraid of what they did to themselves. I didn’t wait a couple days to get on the scale, when I got home I was about five or 6 pounds heavier. No problem. Guess what. I’m down 10 pounds since then. I am on my way back to where I need to be and then some for 2019. No problem. I dialed myself the fuck in hard when I got home. Got myself back into the gym routine this week, and will take it another step next week and back to another 12 week program. That should end up my year pretty good. I’m going to finish up the year keto and then see where that takes me from there. I will probably start slowly adding carbs to a reasonable amount. I definitely miss Bread and sandwich although I’m going to experiment with some chaffle bread this week.
I am actually pretty impressed at how my body turns things around now. It is in insane. I actually slip right back into ketosis in about 48 hours. It just goes to show you that I am definitely fat adapted.
If you are still struggling to get back on track after the summer now is the time motherfuckers. lol.
BTW – Living your best life every day is more important than living your best life on vacation￼. We all live our best lives on Vacation. And quite honestly most people live their best lives on the inter webs. A lot of people are afraid to talk about struggling or needing help. I have a stick be happy on Facebook policy. I don’t want my brides or grooms or band people knowing that I am having a bad week. I mean who would want a depressed ass band leader coming to their wedding a few days after posting that they were struggling. I wouldn’t most likely. But I am raw and honest here. We call choose what to share with each other on those more visible avenues. While I might lead you here with a post ion IG or snap, you choose to click the blog so get ready for real uncensored Franco here. I want to live my best life everyday. Not easy. Not impossible.
I had two awesome nights since coming back from Florida, we went to see Judah and the Lion which I LOVED live and we went to the Flyers game last night. In the last minute we had 6 tickets given to us so kids got to go too and it was awesome. We get to go to quite a few games during the week because tickets seem to be cheap on Monday nights etc on stub hub but we couldn’t do it without some of our friends knowing that we’ll have so much fun there. Gina and Phil gave us a set that the boys ended up using and we got to check out the Center City Club with Peggy and Hector. Even if it’s for 1 season and 1 season only, I really have to figure out how to grab some season tickets. It’s a bucket list thing for Amber and would probably count for 2 or 3 vacations. Of course, the prices went up on everything. Parking, Crab fries. They just can’t make this thing family friendly price wise. Its gotten to be so corporate. But we were blessed and had an amazing evening. I am going to have to let Gina’s 10 year old beat me in bubble hockey now a few times.
so…… weight is good. gym is good. life is good. i am okay….
Today is the bands 23rd birthday. 732 days to 25. Think I can make it? I dunno.
I posted about it on IG and FB so I’ll spare everyone here 🙂
Let’s get it. no excuses.
