That makes sense since I enjoyed Booches' hamburgers and Shakespeare's pizza in Columbia, MO and a taste of my husband's ribs at Rosedale BBQ in Kansas City. I did eat salads as often as I could when we were not hitting the regular highlights of our Missouri trips but apparently it wasn't enough to offset the indulgences.
I'm not going to let a couple pounds get me down. While on vacation, I got one good run in along a dusty gravel road beside soybean fields in rural Missouri. I hope to get back into the swing of things here in my running regime. Now that our garden is overflowing with tomatoes, squash and peppers, I'll be enjoying our summer bounty.
The only way to lose the weight is to refocus even when you falter.
