This past Thursday through Sunday we had a mini family vacation. It was a great time. We went to San Antonio where my hubby was having a work convention. We got in at @ 3:30am on Thursday. Got moving that morning for our trip to Sea World. I have never been and it was wonderful. Got lots of cardio in walking in the 100° weather. Later we walked around the Riverwalk. I believe I walked over 6.5 miles on Thursday. The diet went pretty well. I ate much better than I normally would have. Friday was more walking. We took my son to the Children's Museum.... can you say death by stairs....up and down... and up and down again. wow. I think I got in about 5 miles and then later that night I went to the hotel exercise room for a little cardio. I did a mile on the treadmill and 5 miles on the bike. Saturday was pretty much a wash as far as exercise and cardio. Too much going on topped off by a formal affair that evening. Sunday was a great day for my diet. My crowning achievement was salads all day. I know you are saying no big deal but the second salad was while the rest of my family was eating Double Dave's pizza buffet. I was so proud of myself. Tonight I went to the gym and did 5 minutes on the rowing machine as a warm-up. Then I did 3 miles on the treadmill and finished in @ 40 min. Not sure of the exact timing but I was proud of myself for this as well since I ran most of the 3 miles. That is a big improvement. I am worried about my weigh-in tomorrow morning. Not sure if I kept off all of the weight I dropped last week while sick. I haven't been anywhere near a scale in 4 days so I have no way of knowing what my weight will be. Did I gain back all of the 6lbs I lost last week. Did I keep those off? or Did I keep those off and lose some more? I guess we will find out tomorrow morning. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
