Recovering from vacation...
Monday, May 17, 2010
Well, 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.
The big walk we made was to and around the outlet mall.
We did some dream wardrobe shopping and marveled at how much cuter the styles seem to be in smaller sizes.
It 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.
