Thing 6: Vacation

30 lbs by Blissdom

Last week I went away – Sunday through Thursday I went to visit my mother and my grandfather. It was his 90 birthday and a good excuse to take the baby for a visit since my mom hadn’t seen her since she was a day old.

I knew that vacation was going to be a weakness for me. We would be eating out and I wouldn’t have my exercise videos not the time to do them. I wad going to be taking care of the baby by myself in the evening and I was likely to be exhausted.

I don’t think I did too badly, but I didn’t do too well either. There was late night snacking when I was alone in my hotel room and I couldn’t get the baby to sleep. There was way too much coffee, but lunch every day was small and healthy. We went for a swim every morning, and it wasn’t vigorous exercise but it was something. I also carried the baby a lot and as she’s now 20 lbs that counts for something.

All in all I’d say I might have gone a bit off track but not too far. Now I just re-re-dedicate. Still, the hardest challenge is giving up pop, something that would benefit both my waistline and my teeth. Chocolate is still my other major weakness and some have suggested that I slowly develop a palate for darker chocolates I haven’t yet been able to bring myself to try.

I haven’t taken my measurements or weighed myself in a little while, maybe after the long weekend I’ll see what work I have left to do.
