YOU CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF WITHOUT CHANGING YOURSELF
I'm back from 10 days of vacation/conference/fun/time away, etc. I had a wonderful time with both venues, family in D.C. and Decorating Den conference in New Orleans. I've owned my Decorating Den franchise for 26 years this months and going to a conference is like a family reunion. Some of these people I've known and been friends with for years. And I make new friends everytime I go. And I learn a lot and see new suppliers and fabrics, furniture, etc. Love it, love it, love it.!
Of course I didn't worry about what went in my mouth but I will say, I didn't always finish the meal, left some on the plate. The first night of conference was our opening party and it being in New Orleans, the them was a mask party. Well, hubby and I aren't ones to be wall flowers so he wore his 3 piece white tail suit decked out in mardi gras colors and I wore my Maid Marian, Renaissance Queen dress made out of drapery fabrics. We won a prize of course for our costumes. Midway through the party, a high school band showed up playing jazzy music and we all got up and paraded around Bourbon Street. All the tourists were taking pictures and some fellow even joined in and tried to pick up one of my friends. I wasn't wearing walking shoes and my feet got sore but it was at least a mile of walking.
One of the things we did was go to Mardi Gras World where they make, refurbish and store all the parade floats from one year to the next. I took a picture of Queen Elizabeth I for Kaseycoff and all my Brit friends but I can't locate the plug to hook up my camera to the computer. I've got a lot of sorting out to do.
So I'm back and already started in with a protein shake and toast with peanut butter. We've got some serious grocery shopping to do. I don't plan on getting on the scale until Monday, my usual day so hopefully things aren't' too bad. I managed to log in everyday to keep my perfect attendance. I am really coveting an I-Pad. I'll have to look into it soon. Tomorrow.
