Winding down....

Thursday, February 28, 2013

My DH and I are packing up and getting ready to head back north to Denver. It's a long 2 day drive...maybe we'll take it in 3 days...but then we'll be home again after 2 months in South Padre Island, avoiding most of the Denver snow. We're not winter fans emoticon

Anyway, my goal was to not gain any weight on this extended vacation. I won't know until I weigh myself at home but I made an effort. Good things I've done.....1) Kept up my exercise adding bike riding since the weather was good (you should have seen me clawing through the wind on the shore this AM. Dermabrasion by blowing sand, grit in my teeth!) emoticon, 2) I brought some sugar free pudding that I turned to instead of more decadent deserts - that worked many times emoticon , 3) I promised myself "no fast foods no matter how lazy you are" and, with the exception of a KFC run for grilled chicken one chilly night I did this, and 4) I tracked things pretty consistently. emoticon

Anyway, SP was a help. Now I have to get through a long car trip (always dangerous with garbage food at every stop you make) and look forward to settlilng back in to my home routine. Talk to everyone next week! emoticon

    It seems like you had things really under control, and I hope the scale rewards you for all of your efforts! It's hard to believe that 2 months has already flown by! Travel safe, and enjoy the comforts of home!

    Just walk away from the garbage food! You don't need it and it will only make you regret. Have a safe journey.

    Spark has some good articles - including how to avoid those junk-food stops. You can pack some good stuff bought at a regular store - it saves money and is better for you.
Praying for a safe and enjoyable trip!
