Just a quick one; the kids should be home any minute....

We're back from our wonderful spring break vacation to Belize and the laundry is all done, so I can spend a little time on sparkpeople, which is always inspiring.

Our vacation was very nice, although we didn't get to do as much diving as I would have liked due to the weather and other considerations. Early in the week there was lots of wind; it actually caused the cancellation of all activities on the island for one day. Before that, we got in one dive excursion that was supposed to be two dives but because of rental gear malfunctions for my NEWLY CERTIFIED DIVER, she and I only got in one dive that day. The next time we went out she had problems with her ear, so Daddy sat out with her then and my oldest daughter and I were able to get in a dive. That dive was COLD and MURKY due to wind, so we cut it to just one dive instead of the planned two. The rest of the week we had land excursions (tubing, hiking, mayan ruins) and snorkeling planned; and since the diving was SO EXPENSIVE (that's what happens I guess when you stay in an exclusive resort instead of a dive resort) we decided to focus on those and do our diving this summer in the Philippines.

The good news at the end of all this: we had a great week, hanging out together. Oldest daughter got a little male attention, which was good for her ego. And I managed to come home without gaining ANY weight!! I guess my plan of leaving something on my plate at every meal, asking for substitutions of high fat foods with more veggies/fruit, and indulging in alcohol in limited quantites WORKED! WooHoo!

Now, I'm back to my "regularly scheduled programming", meaning my normal life....getting ready for my nip/tuck next week by ingesting the vitamins the surgeon gave me, having my blood work done, etc.

    Great plan to make your vacation eating stay under control! I love to snorkel but can't scuba... chronic sinus issues and asthma make me a poooooor diving candidate.

    We did a vacation in Cozeumel when the kids were in high school and college. They still talk about it. It's good to do those things with them and create family memories.
