Update on Weight-Related Goals

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

How did I do on vacation? This is what I want, of course!



But seriously...my pattern is to do pretty well in the beginning and then just have a total meltdown toward the end. In May-June, when we were gone 8 weeks I ended up gaining 8 pounds, most of which was gained in June. (It's never the exercise component, it's what goes in my mouth that's the problem.) I kept my goal of only eating out one time (and as usual, the restaurant did not live up to its hype). We did buy more alcohol than I planned on, but I found that at the higher altitude it really raised my blood pressure, so I left it alone after that.



We were only gone two weeks this time, and it was an active vacation, but ((drumroll, please)) I am down 2 pounds!!!

Only one pound higher than my lowest EVER weight since I started Spark 4 years ago!!!! I'm doing the happy dance, and even though we are leaving tomorrow for a week in Michigan, I'm excited to have the opportunity to practice my good eating/exercise skills out of town. This has always been a HUGE stumbling block.

Well, I must go now, TC is dressed and ready to head into town for some miles on our city trail before we get our day started.

SPARK ON!!!!

    My last vacation was difficult in terms of nutritional goals -- but I've gotten better, and it sounds like you have too! Keep up the good work!
