Back from vacation with my head high

Monday, August 31, 2009

Back from vacation yesterday, and it went really well. Sure, I ate some stuff I don't normally eat, but we made sure to do lots of active things, and I did my exercises everyday; walking, water jogging, swimming, fishing, strength exercises. And we walked ALOT! to get to the beach we had to schlep our beach stuff a couple of blocks and then down a long driveway- probably 1/2 to 3/4 mile one way anyway. Couldn't weigh in until this morning, but I lost 5 pounds over the 8 days I was gone. I was amazed!

I also still tracked what I ate and tried to plan what we would eat and when we would eat. (but I was far from perfect). I couldn't use spark people, but I used the Lose It app on my touch. (I had started with that when I first began this journey) Sure I had treats, but I really tried to keep it reasonable- small portions and only a few treats a day. And LOTS of exercise!!

All in all it was a great (but too short) week. The encouragement from folks to help shore me up before I left was a real shot in the arm! Thanks everyone!!
