a quick "i'm back! stay tuned! oooooh prius!"

As much as I missed the Able-Bodied world, fun and sun in Florida was a welcome reprieve to life. But that's done and life is moving on quickly...

~ I planned a weigh-in tomorrow to assess damages of home-cooking, booze, and dining-out (countered with a bit of walking, kayaking, biking, days of very light eating, and hauling of sails). Stay tuned, this could turn ugly :(

~ I'm considering a big parallel goal this year, to go with my weight loss. Stay tuned, I think this will be a great positive new direction for me!

~ In another amazing coincidence of fate, Jill over at Lost and Not Found was also out adventuring last week, and has some cool reviews and photos to share. Go check it out and read about Paris and Oxford and all the other places they visited.

One interesting note from Florida: we rented a Prius. Oh how much fun was that! Of course, Able-Bodied Boy might not agree, as he was the poor sucker trying to figure out all the bells and whistles and buttons and levers. But once we got the hang of it, we had smooth high-mpg quietly-electric sailing. ~200 miles later, we filled it up with 5-gallons of gas, FTW! While I'm not 100% convinced of the extraordinary "savings" of electric and alt-fuel vehicles, it was a very nifty drive, comfortable, and very roomy.

What did you do over the weekend?

Much Love,
Able-Bodied Girl

  1. Oooh... Ahhh. :)
    Welcome back to the cold and muck. Couldn't you have brought a wee little Florida sunshine back with you, luv?

    Looking forward to your new "things." But, here's a helpful little reminder... don't underestimate the power of how you've BEEN watching things and exercising when it comes to your weigh ins! Instead of expecting the worst, how about a little positive thinking there? (yes... pot, kettle... I get it, but I have to endorse positive thinking even when I fight with it!).
