Ok, so it’s been awhile. I’ve been enjoying some fabulous Austin, TX weather (75-80) for the past week and even better food!
My plan was to do the same thing while on vacation that I did for Christmas. Go off plan and enjoy the foods I wanted to, but in moderation. Overall, I think I did an ok job of that, but not great.
I also started off eating my snacks and taking my supplements, but I didn’t keep up with that very long, because I just didn’t want to spend the money when I wasn’t on plan to take those spendy pills, etc. So, I saved them and just didn’t worry about it for the week.
I got on the scale this morning and was up a whopping 9 lbs! WHOA!! Of course, I KNOW a lot of this is water weight, so I’ve been hitting the apple cider vinegar hard today. YUCK!!! But, I know it’s working, because I’m in the bathroom like every 10 minutes. This also tells me that I am in indeed retaining a lot of water.
My hope is that I really only gained around 3 lbs, with 6 lbs being water. We shall see on Monday morning after 2 days of the apple cider vinegar 3 times daily. Did I say YUCK yet? 😉
We got back home late last night (around 10:00 pm or so), but I jumped right back on plan first thing this morning. Summer is coming soon, after all and I still have a long way to go before I feel comfortable that I look good in shorts and a tank top!
Of course, with a Winter Storm Warning threatening another FOOT of snow tomorrow, I don’t have to worry about that quite yet. Welcome back to Minnesota! Ha!
I’ll check back on Monday with the report of the real weight gain for the vacation after shedding water over the weekend.
No matter what, I had a GREAT time on vacation with my family and it was totally worth it. I would absolutely do it again!! 🙂
