Well, I made it back. I was away for work. I had to go to the Netherlands and Amsterdam. I was a little leary about going because I was not sure what I would face when it came to eating. I was going in with an open mind and figured that I would eat whatever I wanted but that I would be mindful of what I was putting in my body. I don't think I did the best that I could have done but I also don't think that I did too bad either. I did realize that the Europeans seem to eat pretty healthy. They eat whole food that is real and that is of good quality. At least they did where I was staying.
The thing I liked was that they are very active! They ride their bikes and walk everywhere!!! I must have walked a ton while I was there. I was looking to rent a bike but didn't have much time to do so. I came away with the idea that I need to keep active and moving in order to have a much more healthy lifestyle. I haven't been back to the gym since I returned to the states, but once I get caught up on rest and other family obligations I intend to get right back to it.
I saw my trainer yesterday and he said he missed me. I told him that I will be back soon and that he has not lost me. I am not giving up on this difficult journey. I know that I will have bumps in the road, but the intention is to just roll right over those bumps and move on. I hope everyone is doing well.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.
