Recovering from vacation...

Monday, May 17, 2010

emoticonWell, today is Monday, and we just returned from our trip to Las Vegas, having gone up on Thursday. We went for bowling sweepers, some R&R and some quality DH, sister, and in-law time.

The good news ..... no, let me rephrase that... The GREAT news... is, that my sister and I made good choices, not only with food and drink, but also with moving the body. Besides my bowling, we did some time on the eliptical machines and treadmills in the hotel fitness center. She also climbed stairs and we managed to get in a 2 mile+ walk one day. I also walked some laps around the casino. You don't lose any money while you are walking, only calories. You know the expression "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas"? I found that to be true....especially gambling money.
emoticon The big walk we made was to and around the outlet mall.
emoticonWe did some dream wardrobe shopping and marveled at how much cuter the styles seem to be in smaller sizes.
emoticonIt was definitely an advantage having a "buddy" along to encourage and validate and each be on the same page.

Tomorrow will be back to normal. But let me share that business as usual has evolved into something better, a more viable lifestyle, with body and health issues reaping the benefits.

    So... how'd you bowl? LOL!!! Wonderful to read this blog, it shows a great spirit and positive attitude! I am terrified of machines in the Hotel Fitness Center! I am so unsure of myself...I think I will ask a friend to go with me next time and then I can "watch and learn". I usually log about 3 miles a day running and walking the hallway on whatever floor I am staying. I find that the carpeted surface is easy on my knees and other than a few "obstacles", ie; cleaning carts, I can keep a pretty good pace on a wonderfully flat surface!

    I am so proud of you! You inspire me to keep moving forward!

    Great job on your food choices and healthy activities while you were on vacation. Most people would have forgotten all about their new healthy lifstyles and just say, Oh! I'm on vacation I will start over when I get home. emoticon

    What fun! I'm glad you not only made wise choices, but you fit in more healthy, fun activity than anyone else I've known who ever went to Vegas! Isn't it the truth about smaller sizes! Oh, for the day when "cute" will describe ANY THING in my closet - lol! Glad you're home... Sandi
