Sadly, vacation is over. It was back to reality today. I wish I could have had one more day off, but they’re doing the floors at the store this week so two of the other managers have to work M-F this week. Which means that I, sadly, had to work today.
It was an easy day to get back into the swing of it, which was good. I hate when the first day back from vacation is madness. You don’t have time to breathe, let alone get settled in.
But, by and large, vacation was really nice. I got to see friends, got stuff done around the house, and generally relaxed. We went to dinner last night at a bougie place downtown to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary, and enjoyed the hell out of it.
It’s funny, really. Normally by the end of vacation I’m dying to get out of the house, go somewhere, do something. But I didn’t get that urge this time around. I think it’s because I kept busy, and I kept out of the house and was social.
Diet and exercise were good. I made it to the gym almost every day and got a couple really good runs in. Twice during the week I managed to average a 15 minute mile over the course of the run. But that was really pushing it. I kept to a slower pace the rest of the week. But progress is progress. Every run I get a little bit strong, a little more endurance, and a little bit faster.
I’ve literally got nothing else in me today. Last week was nice. But it’s back to reality.
I hope everyone has a good week. Stay safe, friends.
