2. My current challenge is figuring out how to pack for 12 weeks and at least five different locations in a small suitcase and a backpack. Fortunately, I will have access to laundry facilities in Saint Louis, Madrid, and Toronto, but I'm thinking I may have to send some clothes back with Mark when he comes to visit me in Saint Louis and buy a few more summery items as the temperatures rise.
3. I haven't been as diligent as I should about tracking points and monitoring my portion sizes over the past couple of weeks, and I've put a couple of pounds back on. The number on the scale bothers me less than the tightness of my jeans. I was talking to a friend last night about how much more difficult it seems to be to lose weight now than it did a few years ago. He commiserated with me about both the tendency to gain during an Alaskan winter and slowing metabolisms.
What's new with you? Will you be racing over Memorial Day weekend? What has been your most challenging packing project?
