I'm back from Puerto Rico. The trip was great and much needed. I spent time with my parents, brother, fiance, grandparents and cousins. It was the perfect break from the insanity of work.
The Good: exercise. I couldn't wait to go on vacation so that I could exercise! Crazy, I know, but I was seriously looking forward to it since work has been cramping my exercise style. I got in a run around the golf course at my hotel, a run on the beach, and hours of dancing.
The Bad: drinking. There were many drinks poolside and at the wedding. Yikes! I usually don't allow myself liquid calories with the exception of skim milk. All the juice in my fruity cocktails was full of calories.
The So-so: eating. My eating was decent for vacation. I kept breakfast clean all but the morning after the wedding when I indulged in bacon and a belgian waffle. Otherwise, it was yogurt or oatmeal and fruit. Lunch was a little worse with some tortilla chips and a half a burger mixed in. Dinner was always indulgent and usually included dessert.
So, what's the damage?
I came back with some nice color, some sore legs, and 4 extra pounds. I can't say I've tackled these extra pounds since getting back on Monday thanks to a hectic work week of 16+ hours, which equals ordering out all meals. I know I could have brought food with me but I never got to the food store since getting back from vacation, so I am left with an empty fridge and pantry.
Here's to a better weekend! It can't come soon enough.
