Vacation All I Ever Wanted...Vacation Had To Get Away...

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

So I am currently at work with 5 hours left, and then I am finally freeeeeeeeee as a bird for the next 24 days!! I get a 2 week annual vacation, (next year I get 3 weeks), and with trading some days I turned that into 24 days. I am pretty excited. emoticon emoticon

I am going to Vegas to visit my Gammie for 6 days. We are going to gamble and eat, but for the first time I am going to really try not to revolve so much of our time around food, and she is totally on board with that. Other than that we will hang out and do puzzles like we do and just have fun. She is like my BFF.

Then I will be bringing her back with me so that she can hang out with the rest of my family and have a fabulous Thanksgiving. I am just genuinely excited not to have to go to work.

In other news, anyone who knows me knows that I have been struggling big time lately. emoticon At one point this week the scale was up 4 lbs emoticon. Through some work I was able to flush that water weight out of my system, *knock on wood* that I don't find it again in the morning. I should be looking to maintain my weight again this week, and I will be so relieved not to have to post a gain for the BLC. I have also had a GREAT two days prior to leaving that I really needed. I have reset my mind and reset my body and I'm ready to move forward.

If any of the emoticon's are reading this, after missing next weeks weigh in due to being out of town, I intend to be posting a weigh in the following week that will be a loss (down from my current 214).

I am fully aware that I am going to be gaining some water weight and what not by eating out in Vegas, I am prepared for it, and I am also prepared to take the pounds right back off when I get back. I have a plan in place for getting on track when I get back, and I have designated one my good buddies to stand by ready to open up a can of whoop a$$ if I don't get right back to it. I can very easily become distracted, and 6 days of eating out and enjoying certain things can send me on a downhill spiral but I am determined not to let that happen. Onederland is calling to me, and I won't give up until I get there. emoticon

To all my Spark Friends, I should be around to give out goodies and stuff for Thanksgiving, but just in case I hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving (Well, my US Sparkies that is)! emoticon emoticon

    Your Gammie is a cutey. I know you will have fun with her and then both of you will join the family and just all enjoy each other. Food is just an added attraction. Have a wonderful time. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Enjoy your vacation, grandma, and Thanksgiving! I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving.. I have a few "favorite" holidays.. But I absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving because it is not based on giving and receiving gifts.. but on spending time with the ones we love, giving thanks for the things we already have, (and good food! I intend on indulging a little on Thanksgiving because it is really about the only time I get to eat Turkey.. and Turkey is my favorite meat!) Really hoping for you that you can post a LOSS by the time you get back from vacay. Wouldn't that be awesome? I'm looking forward to you hitting Onederland now. Such an amazing feeling seeing a 1 instead of a 2 at the front of the scale. Not only that.. but the huge change in energy and happiness as the weight comes off feels amazing as well! Have I mentioned you are one of my favorite Sparkies? Keep pushing and you are going to hit Onederland before you are aware you got there!

    Ack! Have a GREAT time- and doing something brave while you're gone. Good Luck on eating well. On a vacation more than ever you have to remember that it's a day by day thing, make the best choices today and leave yesterday and tomorrow to themselves. You get to flex your healthy habits muscles and I just know you'll do well! Can't wait to hear all about it!
