Vacation was GREAT... and then I hopped on the scale...
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Yeah. So, we went on vacation and were gone a total of 9 days. First night- Laughlin, then on to RIverside CA to see sister- in - law and her family, and some old friends. It was a good time for the most part-but we ate out a lot more than I expected. She doesn't really cook at home much so... Then we went off to Las Vegas. I LOVE that place, and though I knew we would be eating badly the 3 days we were there- I figured all the walking would *kind* of help with that. Had a great time. Saw a show and spent our 17th anniversary driving home on Saturday. Sunday, I hopped on the scale (against my better judgement) and WOAH- 7 lbs had found thier way back to me. I am not dumb- I KNEW there would be a price to pay for this trip. I figured maybe 3 lbs or so...yeah it was a bit of a shock. I mean really? SEVEN lbs in 9 days? I KNOW I was not eating like 6000 calories a day- at least not *every day!
SO- I had met my goal of getting under 185 (before our trip) the day before we left ( put me down 55 lbs that day)...and I came back to 191. UGH.
I am back to zumba and drinking water and counting my calories...and I am hoping that I drop a few back off pretty quickly. It's just that it usually takes about 2 months for me to lose that much!
So, I have to ask myself...was it worth it?
GOOD thing we don't take trips like that often (actually -it's rare to go away for more than about 4 days)!
I am not getting back on the scale until Sunday. *At least that is what I keep telling myself...we'll see if I hold out that long!
