Around the World in 18 Days

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I'm back from my whirlwind trip! We arrived home last night from an 18 day trip to Istanbul, Cappadocia and New York! It was a long, enlightening, challenging, unbelievable, incredibly special trip! And the best news is: I only gained one pound! I can't believe it! There was food, food, food: Turkish food galore, chicken Parmesan, pizza, cupcakes, wine! It was an active vacation but I was still certain I'd packed on the pounds. Nope! I must have used some of my new Spark knowledge. Now that I'm home, I'm very, very motivated to get back on the grind and hit my goal for the year! Only 11 pounds to go -- a pound a week!

My new job starts in two weeks so I don't see myself having a ton of time to blog and participate as I have been. BUT I will make time to track food and water, read blogs and write statuses. You guys are all in my thoughts!

In closing, my favorite pics taken on my vacation. I took these pics while hot air ballooning Cappadocia, Turkey!
