Vacation Recap: My score 7

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I had such an awesome four days with DH. A lot of it was just busy stuff, but we still had fun and enjoyed ourselves.

I did not track my food at all. But I am glad that my brain was keeping an unofficial tally.

I ate more (more often and different food) than I normally do . . . including ice cream (at home, twice).

One day we had fish and chips. I took home about half of the fish and ate about one-third of the fries.

The birthday lunch for DH's daughter was pizza (rather than Mexican food - and that really saved my bacon!) and I was able to choose the slices that I wanted and didn't take seconds.

I am up a pound and a half from last week . . . and I'm not surprised. But it's not a big deal cos I know I'll be back to 'normal' soon just by getting back on track.

I stayed pretty active. Did a lot of walking when we were gone, but when we were home, I was really busy helping DH around the property. We got a lot of stuff done too.

And now, it's time to get back to work on ME

    I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves together.

And isn't it great that the additional pound or two will be off again in no time.

All that walking sure helps to keep your weight under control when you're on vacation.

Sounds like you had a great time!

    It is always a treat to just "let go" once in a while, but I know you will be right back at it now. BTW, I wanted to try that dryer shrink, but I had clothes sitting in my dryer waiting to be folded! Oh well, some other time emoticon

  Awesome Blog!!! I'm Glad That you and DH had a Wonderful Vacation overall. Don't worry about the 1 1/2 Pound Weight Gain. Some of it could be Water Weight and Salt. It will be gone in no time. You are doing Great. Just get back on track and You will be Fine. It was in the 90 ies up here in Portland today. I hope it is much cooler down there where You Live. I Love the Pictures and Quotes too. Stay Cool. God Blessings to You and Everyone. Have a Super Nice Day. Tale Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like you had a great time on your time with your DH and his family. Flexibility is important in healthy eating, as long as you average more healthy eating than not.

Have a great week,
