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.

I love, love, love that picture. It is so cute. Glad you guys had a great time...and great job on the eating. Funny how we dont' feel like we're missing out on something just because we're not eating crap!

Great job on the weight loss this week!
