|Miracle Beach, Vancouver Island|
I briefly dipped below my second weight goal (wanted to get there before our trip) but haven't seen that low again so will keep at eating well and increasing activity. So far I have lost 5.2 lbs. I have also done a second purge of my closet and gotten rid of some large size clothing as I seem to mostly be shrinking back to a medium. I have no intention of upsizing again.
I am in the process of cleaning out the fridge and freezer as three weeks from today we leave on our two week trip to Greece - woohoo! We have a lot to accomplish before then but are pretty organized so it likely will all get done.
There have been recent discussions in our household about possibly spending part of the winters in Mexico, even as early as 2019. I doubt that it will happen that fast as although we can still run our business from Mexico (we do online web-conferencing) we would have to find a 2 month rental mid-winter that would allow a dog and have secured parking as we would be driving there with Buddy. I am currently open to the areas of Mazatlan (my favorite as I have been going there for 30 years) and Puerto Vallarta. We don't want to purchase property and we don't want to take an RV as that would not be conducive to continuing to run our business. Time will tell I guess but hubby is all of a sudden on board with it whereas when I have talked about it in the past he was reluctant to consider going for a long period of time. I think he has hit the point in his life where he wants to do more living and less saving :)
Right now I am thankful that we get to live in such a beautiful safe place like Vancouver Island. The weather has gotten a little better with less rain and I managed to get our tomatos planted on the weekend. My heart goes out to all those affected by the flooding across Canada including Contessa and Colin Jewall of the 5 C's Que Pasa blog as they are currently evacuated out of their home due to rising lake water. Fingers and toes crossed that the waters recede soon and they can get back home and start putting their life back together.
Have a great rest of your week everyone!
