I'm back from vacation too...Pam, thanks for starting this month's thread.
I'm not going anywhere near a scale for a few days. we were very active but I don't feel thinner. a couple days of just driving does not help with weight control unless you eat only carrot sticks and water.
I'm with Casey.... I relaxed a little on my alcohol restrictions. I don't find that it removes my self control on food choices, but it does have its own little pile of calories. yesterday we did a mt bike to a trail, then a 4 mile hike to a high viewpoint, then back down to the bikes for the ride out. took 7.5 hours total. and so I partied with one beer and 12 cheese curls on the way home.
we had a good trip with the glaring exception that smoke and haze was much worse and more extensive than we'd thought it would be. Fires lots of places throwing out an extensive smoke plume that just sat in place.
we did a bunch of hikes, several mountain bike excursions, some road biking too. we were around the east side of yellowstone park and the Beartooth Hwy for a week. some times the air was fairly clear but not always. saw lots of critters in Yellowstone. bison, pronghorns, bears, wolves, moose, and all being quite active and interesting. no elk, still too early I guess. saw one outside the park.
I don't really gever get off exercise so need to re-focus on food again, which is easier at home than when camping.
