I am back in Tampa once again and preparing for our flight back to Oregon tonight. As I took my final 1 hour walk this morning I thought about so many fun times we had on this trip. The morning sun felt so welcoming upon my body as I walked and it is so important to take in this free vitamin each day. As beautiful as Oregon is, it seems that there is not enough sunshine for a normal human life. The sun does shine brightly for 3 months out of the year but it is so intense that it is unbearable at times, and of course the other 9 months are either cloudy or raining or both.
My blood sugar registered a 128 this morning and I have come to the conclusion that while not being in my little circle it becomes close to impossible to maintain a proper diet and exercise routine. Even my sleeping hours are effected by being on vacation. So doing the best that I can right now is the only answer I can find in this current situation I am in. I drove over 10 hours in the last 2 days and found it very difficult to find any type of food that I normally eat. When I got back last night I had only one option and that was pizza and I was starving when I got in.
We will be flying out at 8:50 tonight and should arrive in Portland Airport somewhere near 3:00 AM. I will try to get some sleep on the plane but know that I have never been able to sleep on an airplane. So Sunday too may be a wash, but Monday will offer me the opportunity to get back on track. I haven’t yet made a decision as to what exercise routine I will be working on, but I will get started somewhere.
The trip to Miami was short but well worth the extended drive as I got to spend some quality time with this lovely little granddaughter of mine. We went to dinner then to breakfast the next day and I enjoyed all of the Cuban food I could handle.
