I just got back from 9 days in Hawaii. It was great. I feel rested and relaxed. And exceptionally skinny. After 9 days in the tropics, who would have thought that was possible?!?! And this without tracking my food. I’m very pleased myself.
It was by no means a perfect week. I enjoyed my fair share of Mai-Tai’s and even a chocolate martini on my birthday (I can't eat cake). But we stayed at a family member’s condo so I was able to prepare breakfast and lunch and kept healthy snacks on hand like fruit and macadamia nuts (had to, it’s Hawaii!). We only ate dinner out. I even boxed half my meal a couple nights and ate leftovers for lunch. And I stayed active every day. With the time difference, I was awake before dawn so I went for a jog in the morning, and on top of that, we walked almost everywhere, shops, the beach, restaurants. When we did drive, it was to get to places to hike, kayak and snorkel.... needless to say, I slept soundly on the plane on the way home!
I was so good, it’s almost been a struggle keeping the momentum going now (the jet lag and sunburn hasn’t been helpful getting me back into the gym). But just one more pound to my goal of 50 pounds lost. ALMOST THERE!!
