Back from Vaca

Sunday, February 24, 2008

After a delicious 2 weeks in the US, I am slowly getting back on track. I had a fantastic time on vacation. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Surprisingly I didn't WANT that much junk food, just a few things I was missing: Krispy Kreme donuts, Tex Mex, BBQ, In 'n' Out burger (with fries AND a shake!), fajitas, Ben & Jerry's, Marie Callender's Coconut Cream Pie, etc. I am very happy to say that after all that, I maintained my pre-vacation weight. It's up now because of TOM, but that doesn't count.

I had severe jet-lag, topped with an insanely stressful week back at work, so I didn't sleep well. I only made it to the gym twice, but promise to be back to 3-4 times a week starting tomorrow. I did manage to sneak in 50 crunches tonight, so I'm just over 550, I think. I have to do a minimum of 31 crunches every day for the rest of the year to hit my goal of 10,000.

Unfortunately, I am going on a tour of the local chocolate factory tomorrow... This sounds funny, but I'm only going to get a cocoa bean. I've been on the tour twice before, and they let us take home a cocoa bean. The last one we had fell on the floor and broke. But I have every intention of going to the gym after work, to get my ST in.

    Hi Jen!

    Your doing good on those crunches! You have inspired me to inflate my fitness ball and to start doing some too (for some reason, I love doing crunches on the ball!)! I think I will do that tomorrow. So thank you!

    That's awesome that you didn't want a lot of junk food. That's a good sign! AND that's absolutely awesome that you didn't gain!

    I hope all is going well with you!

    Sorry to hear that you had a stressful week at work and I can relate to that horrible jet-lag! But I'm glad that your holiday went well - sounds like you had fun over there.
