Back from the beach!

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

The Oregon coast was beautiful over the weekend! We stayed in Seaside, but also traveled around to Tillamook and Newport.

So many things to see, SO many foods to indulge in! I basically let myself eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. You know what I found out? When I allow myself to eat I don't do too bad. I did eat things that I usually don't, and things that I ONLY eat while at the beach.

I did try a candy coated Twinkie (who knew people needed to create such things?) I also had fudge. Even ice cream at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. There was so much stuff to do I actually missed lunch one day. I didn't even realize I hadn't eaten!

When I got back on Sunday my weight was up by three pounds. Not bad to me considering I didn't eat that healthy, and the only exercise I got was walking around through all of the shops and along the beach. Today my weight was only up by half a pound. One day of eating right and I'm back on track! I didn't even get a chance to exercise yesterday, since I ended up having to watch my niece and nephew.

Today I've already gotten in 45 minutes of exercise, and I'm planning to go to the gym again with my husband tonight. It felt great to take a break and know that I can bounce right back.

    I've been to the Tillamook cheese factory! So many great ice cream flavors! Aaahhh!!!
    I absolutely LOVED my vacation to the Oregon Coast a few years ago! It was so beautiful; one of my favorite vacations of all time. I can't wait to move to Seattle and visit Oregon more often.
    I recently went on vacation and gained 3 pounds too! I'm finding it difficult to get back into the normal routine again. I didn't pay a bit of attention to how I was eating and I only worked out 1 day in the hotel fitness gym. But I did a lot of walking. All in all, 3 pounds isn't terrible but of course I wish it went the other way! ;)

    Sounds like a GREAT time, and I know the whether was beautiful too. I love the beach, so true there is so many things to do there.

    Congrats on getting back on track, that is something I struggle with when on vacation and to come back to dieting, so I commend you for that emoticon

    Good job on the exercise too, I'm sure it's nice to have a buddy to work out with too emoticon
