Friday Weighin ~ A trip to Onederland

Last Weeks Weight:  201.0                                    This Weeks Weight:  198.0

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.
