Dang! It's cold!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a breakdown. Not too hot. Hot too cold. We had planned on hiking, so we had plenty of water and snacks with us. It was a simple repair, so we still had time to take in a few sights. BAM! What an overnight change, and the temperature fell more during the day. We're under a wind advisory. I lost count of how many times I shivered today just going between the van and a building. Like clockwork my appetite kicked it's heels. I am over my calorie limit for the day by about 300 calories. I don't feel bad about it. I feel satisfied. I ate the most fruit and vegetables I have ever eaten in one day, and they were delicious and well prepared well. So far, this is the best I have ever managed my eating while traveling. Lord help me, back on the restricted calorie track tomorrow.


Eating and traveling

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I think I'm doing okay. The tracker says I am. The problem is I have to estimate portions and guess at how the food has been prepared. My skinny jeans are also saying I'm fine. The real test will be the scale when I get home. I feel like I'm eating plenty.


Big breakfasts with family

Monday, October 01, 2012

I thought the big breakfasts at the assisted living facility where my in-laws are was just a weekend thing. Wrong. This morning's breakfast was even bigger and richer than yesterday's. Now, I am an old farm girl, and there aren't many people who like scrambled eggs and sausage for breakfast more than I do. But I think I have reached my limit for the week. Tomorrow morning I'm going to take a packet of instant oatmeal with me and my peppermint tea and request some hot water.

  Sounds like a good idea! I love those kind of breakfasts too but they go straight to my tush & legs - emoticon

Skinny jeans

Monday, October 01, 2012

Today I am wearing my skinny jeans. For me that means size 14 classic cut - no elastic. I am just back into them. They are not skin tight, but if I eat too much, I'll be miserable. Except for when I overeat, I love how I feel when I wear them.

We have an exercise plan

Monday, October 01, 2012

We have an exercise plan for the rest of the week. Today we're going back to the pool to swim. I doubt the waterpark will be open when we go, so no slide. emoticon The lap pool is always open, and so is the lazy river. They also have water aerobics classes going off and on throughout the day. Tomorrow we are going to go for a hike. It's only about 3 miles long, round trip, with a steep climb at the end. I am taking the camera! Wednesday and Thursday we're getting up early to use the fitness room here at the hotel.
