3 lb Loss
Finally made it back to Onederland. It's been over a year since I was at this weight. I had a good week. I logged all my foods and did well with my food choices. I fell short on my strength training & flexibility exercises this week. I will have no access to gym while on trip, but I will do at least one yoga video.
Tomorrow we travel to Tampa Florida for 9 days. That will be 9 days without a scale, I am a little nervous to be disconnected from the scale for so long. I do have exercise already planned for the trip including morning and evening walks on the beach and more swimming. I may even right a bike for a day, depending on the weather. I will also have my iPad for connecting to YouTube exercise videos.
On another note, I lost a friend this week due to complications from diabetes. She had weight loss surgery a few years back and lost significant weight. She was never very active though. I feel that losing the weight did let her live a better quality of life during the last few years, but I can't help but think maybe if she had been more active, she would have had even more of those years. Another wake up call for me - as if I needed one :(
NSV's for the week
- shorts that are getting too big to wear
- choosing NOT to eat junk food at granddaughters swim meet
- swam laps 6x
- walked 1x
- strength training 1x
My plan for vacation week is to continue logging my foods, keep alcohol to minimum, eat as many fresh fruits & veggies as possible, choose grilled seafood choices whenever possible, blog about my day for accountability. The alcohol will be a challenge for this week since we love frozen concoctions while beaching, but my plan is to share one with Hubby instead of preparing one just for me.
