Back from vacation

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

I just had a great and relaxing week in Florida for Thanksgiving. I didn't enter my nutrition because my internet access was very spotty and I was eating out a lot, so it would have been difficult to approximate everything. I did go back and enter my workouts.

I really am happy with how things went! I got in my regularly scheduled workouts. Of course, I wasn't home for my yoga class on Monday, but we were at Animal Kingdom, and I got in at least enough walking to compensate!

I tried to find the right balance between enjoying myself at meals without overdoing it. We ate lots of fish, and I ordered mine blackened instead of fried, and substituted veggies for fries or chips. But I did let myself have some sweets. I had some awesome chocolate mousse on Thanksgiving at the Halifax River Yacht Club buffet, which was filled with great food. I also had some pudding that night at my cousin's house, and a large oatmeal chocolate chip peanut butter cookie later in the week. It's more than I would have had at home, but still very sensible!

And the final verdict? I got home yesterday, and not only do I still fit into the size 4P pants I just bought myself, but I weighed in at 117.5 this morning...LESS than I weighed when I left! I think this is a good sign that I will be able to do well over the long-term as well. I'm very happy right now!
