Florida Peeps??

We will be on a 4 day Disney Cruise that ends March 10th. We are considering spending 3 nights @ Nickelodeon Resort afterward. My question is, do you think it will still be too cold for the slides??

Mtce, Valentines & pre-Vegas

Mr. Scale showed 161.5 this exactly the same as last week YaY! This weeks post is a day late for several reasons, #1-I wanted to give myself a day to resolve a gain from our Valentines meal, #2-we are leaving for Vegas tomorrow & I wanted to record my pre-trip weight, #3-Monday was Valentines day & I wanted to enjoy the day without stress from Mr.Scale. My food log was crazy this week. I had to drink colonoscopy prep on Sunday, hardly ate anything Monday after the test either. Then I must have caught a bug while in the hospital for the test, I was sick the rest of the week. My food log doesn't reflect all the sugarfilled cough & cold medicines that I took.

We did our Valentines dinner on Sunday because my very favorite restaurant was full. It was soooo good! We shared an order of crab cakes, I ate 1/3 of one & Hubby ate the rest, it had the most delicious Cajun remoulade sauce with just the right amount of horseradish. I ate a few bites of my Caesar salad & 3-4 small pieces of anchovies. Next came our Filet, it was so good but I could only eat a couple bites. For dessert we shared a chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream & I ate one chocolate covered strawberry. Of course we had a bottle of wine (I had 2 glasses) & I had a cappuccino. My band allowed me only a sample of everything, I was able to enjoy without too much guilt. Mr Scale showed a 2lb gain the next day but I have learned that restaurant food generally has more salt than when I cook at home, my weight was back to normal the next day.

Also, on Monday the Wonderful man that I married gave me a Kindle for Valentines Day! I had been considering buying one, my Hubby always gives the best presents.

Water~my water intake was fairly good this week. I forced myself to keep a mental count most days. I find my water is better when I try to track it.

Healthy Eating~I had fruit 4 days this week, I'm doing much better including fruit & skim milk most days.

Fitness~ exercise was nonexistent this week. I used my illness as an excuse not to go, I must do better this week.

My health plan for Vegas- plan to take advantage of fitness center in our hotel. I love walking the strip, so I plan to walk as much as possible. I also plan to avoid buffets.

Mtce & Vacation

This morning, Mr. Scale showed 161.5, -1lb loss from last week. After last week's post, I made a fill appointment only to cancel it at the last minute. I am so afraid of aggravating my reflux since it has been better lately.

I had a routine colonoscopy this morning. Drinking all that prep was quite a challenge with my band. I am not able to chug water like I could before my banding. Seemed like it took me forever to drink that vile stuff. Everything went well and thankfully I will not have to repeat it for several years.

Fitness~~This week I really did a mix of activities. Zumba Wii 2x, Yoga Wii once, Pilates class @ the gym along with elliptical & treadmill. Still only made it to the gym only one day. I will work to increase my gym visits this week.

Healthy Eating~~One of the advantages of logging my foods, is my ability to review my strength & weaknesses. This week I had 5 servings of fruit including 3 svgs of raisins. I still need to continue making a conscious effort to include fruits & veggies each day. Adding extra berries/apples to my oatmeal is helping.

Water~~ water intake was good this week.

Reflux~~ not so bad this week. I actually slept well most nights & without a mountain of pillows !

In 10 days, Hubby and I will be going on a little trip to Vegas, I need a get-away. We have been there many times. There are several things on our must see for this trip, first up for me will be a spa day, completely with a deep tissue massage and peppermint foot rub. I would love to first their new Mob Museum if it is open, I'm not sure if its open yet. Also, I have never seen the Blue Man group so we added that to our list.

Goals for this week

Zumba 2x
Gym 2x
at least one outdoors activity
Minimum 1 fruit each day
