We had a big family reunion this past weekend – the kind that includes late nights, adult beverages, a junk food – lots and lots of junk food. It was delicious. It was fun. It was relaxing. It was great to laugh and share and let go of worries and reconnect. People noticed that I was looking better than I have. I got a lot of positive reinforcement for the choices that I have been making. Overall it was a fantastic weekend. But it also made it a struggle to perform well in class tonight. Baby Bear was not effected by it all. Me, I felt like someone had added lead to certain body parts. I guess that is what all that junk food turned into! It was cleansing to sweat it out tonight. I felt lighter after class.
This is our last class until next week as we will be camping for fall break. I am really looking forward to the family time away from phones and computers and TVs and all the things that separate us from each other.
