I was on vacation....
We actually had plans to do some things, but life threw some other things our way & none of the to-do-list got any check marks... except one - I did get to clean my closet.
oh well. I still didn't have to go into work. Still a win win.
But while on vacation, we also got to celebrate our 20 year anniversary.
|Proof that I CAN get a little waist|
... I'll get there again...
2 decades. That blows my mind.
It has gone so fast...
On the fitness front, I decided to just take the week off from working out. My knee is in such extreme
OK... all you people that find gyms when you travel on vacation? I applaud you. I've learned that is not me. I dont even want to work out in my own home where its convenient when I'm on vacation.
Blame the knee.
Always blame the knee in my case.
& on the nutrition front, I knew I didn't want to miss any opportunity to enjoy life. Like, on our anniversary, yes, I did have some carrot cake. Not much - I kept the reigns in my hand - but I did enjoy life a little more then I usually do.
|It was as good as it looked.... amazing!|
& then at the end of the week, I thought, let's see the damage. Let me weigh in.
I expected to see a little bit of a gain on the scale with no working out - with the nutrition not being spot on...
& then got on the scale to see that I reached the 30 lb mark
YES YES YES YES YES YES
Talk about a feeling of happiness!
I don't think there is anything better then expecting the number on the scale to go up & seeing it drop - 2.5 lbs at that for the week!
I will say, while I did eat a little more then I probably usually do, I did stay very aware of what I was eating - I did stay below my calories for the day. Yes, even on the days I had the carrot cake...
& apparently, it still worked out - even with the exercise being on hold.
That's so encouraging to me...
gives me an extra boost to really watch my food more then anything.
But I have to say, I was pretty dang happy to put on my workout clothes yesterday & get back to it.
& yes, my knee still wasn't happy about working out, but I'm taking it slow - knowing that any extra strength training is only going to help my knee... & keep that number going down even more.
