5 day Mini Vacation to Panama and up 2 lbs...Ugh....

Saturday, January 14, 2017

I was hoping by the end of this month I would be down 50 lbs from my 45lbs...but I had a five day mini vacation to Boquete and David Panama! From the get go it was LETS EAT!
I have to say I REALLY enjoyed having things off my regular a Hamburger, French fries and an ICE COLD BEER!

I live in Costa Rica and the food here is not so Boquete Panama....OMG they have a bakery there called Sugar and Spice and I had a RUEBEN SANDWICH! I haven't had a Rueben Sandwich in 2 years or more!

So I get home and this morning I am up 2lbs....ugh...Oh well the next vacation won't be till March or April. In the meantime it is time to detox and get right back to logging my food and exercising.

It is good to travel, but it is also so nice to get back and be on my normal schedule.

Spark out for now....

Pura Vida Hugs from Sunny and Windy Costa Rica

    If that 2lbs has gone on that fast, it will come off that fast too. Probably just water weight from the different eating plan.
    Sounds like you had a great time. I have no idea what a Reuben Sandwich is, but I bet it was lovely.

    Lots of love

    PS. I just googled the Sandwich. Oh my word, that looks fantastic!

    As long as you truly enjoyed the food the few extra travel pounds are not a worry. You are getting right back into your normal plan, which has been working so I think that in a week or two you'll be right where you want to be. Sounds like a fun vacation.

    Lotsa salt on the Reuben. Hope it flushes away.

    I know what you mean. I also love to travel and see lots of new and exciting food I want to try. I always have to remember moderation. Two pounds is not bad and they should come off quickly now that you are back to the foods you usually eat.
