I only have time for a quick update today. I just returned from New Orleans, and I'm still trying to process the experience. The group I went with was amazing. We did a mix of volunteer work (gardening mostly), learning about the area and devastation after Katrina, and having fun.
Between dancing and gardening, I got a good work out to counter all the alcohol and fried foods I ate and drank. Because I didn't get near enough sleep, I wasn't hungry most days and didn't eat very much. This ended up being a great combination for weight loss, and despite my terrible eating earlier in the week, I still lost 1.8 pounds. I am just 1.6 pounds above my goal line now, which is great. I hope to be on or below my goal line by the end of the month.
We talked a lot about food justice while in New Orleans. While this issue isn't a high priority on my personal values matrix, it is very relevant to this blog. I think it will be a good way to connect my experience there with my own lifestyle changes. So you can look forward to some New Orleans food updates coming soon!
