This past week has been filled with change and crazy emotions. On Saturday I returned home from my semester in London. Those were the fastest and best five months of my life. I met amazing people all over Europe and was able to see things I never thought I'd get the chance to see.
The adjustment home has been a little difficult. I miss living in a city and being able to walk or take the tube everywhere. I miss my friends I made and all of our adventures and travels. And of course I miss being legal and going to the bar to grab a pint (or two).
Since I've been home I've been unpacking, catching up with friends and family and reflecting on my time abroad. I've also gotten back on track with my healthy lifestyle and attending my first Weight Watchers meeting since before I left.
I was ecstatic when I weighed in and they told me I only gained 3.8 lbs! That's less than one pound a month! I was expecting the damage control to be a lot worse than that! As cheesy and embarrassing as it is to say, I am proud of myself.
I am missing London tremendously but its nice getting back to reality where I don't eat fish and chips with ale everyday.
