Oh my gosh the Florida Nerd Tour was a total blast! The space shuttle launch went perfectly, we watched from as close as civilians can get, and got some wonderful pictures. I'll stick them in my photo gallery in the next couple of days. We did Astronaut Training, met with an astronaut, and did so much fun geeky stuff!! We spent 6 straight days at Kennedy Space Center...and we really didn't see everything! It was great.
I followed my plan very well. I didn't get as much fruit in as I wanted, but with every meal I ate veggies and salad, and really did well with portion control I think. And, we had bites of dessert here and there, and even a big plate of calamari. And when I came home and hopped on the scale..... I DID NOT GAIN ANY WEIGHT!!!
Yes, that's right, I did not gain weight. Yeah, I rock. And I did not feel deprived in any way.
But, now, I caught the crud. Actually, according to the doc, I caught the actual flu. I am hopped up on medicine, and can't work out hardly at all without being overwhelmed. I've done 20 minutes Monday and Tuesday, but am not supposed to work out for at least tomorrow. Which actually is exciting in it's own way--I exercise so miuch the doctor had to tell me to cut it down for a couple days!!
And of course it's gonna be that time of the month, so I am up 3 pounds today! But no worries, I am just gonna relax, be sick (hubby's sick too, so we will have a couples sick day tomorrow, that sounds kinda fun in a phlegmy way) and not stress over the amount of work piling up for me.
But, to end on a really positive note....dude, I DID NOT GAIN WEIGHT ON MY VACATION!!!!
Oooohh, even more positive: I actually WANTED the taste of lettuce and fresh veggies every time I had them. I LIKE crisp cold lettuce and vegetables!! WOW!! What's louder typing than all caps, that is what I want to do....
