I just woke up after landing at 12:30am last night. I got home around 1:45am and promptly crashed... so good to sleep in my own bed!
I have been gone since eeeearly Saturday so I was quite eager to get on the scale this morning. I was not surprised to see a number over 190. Right now, I weigh 191.8 lbs, up 2 lbs from a week ago. For all the fun I had, not too bad. I drank a lot, ate a lot, and had a lot of fun, and I'm ok with a temporary gain. WOAH. I just said that.
I'm okay with it because I'm no less pretty than I was last Wednesday, my clothes really don't fit any different. No guy would go up to me and say damn girl you'd look great if you weighed 2.2 lbs less. Fluctuations are minor in everyone's mind but my own, and I'm fighting hard to make them minor in mine too.
We took a ton of cool pics in NYC and Atlantic City with my friend's fancy camera. Once he posts them I'll do a picture post on here.
I was just reading Dinnerland and it made me really think about whether healthful choices have started to be more natural to me. I don't think they always are, I definitely choose to nibble on other people's french fries WAY too often and eat "just one bite" of desserts! But last night on my way home I made all good choices. I got to the JetBlue terminal in time to have dinner before my flight. I went to their cafeteria area, where they have everything from Pizza to Chinese to Philly Cheese-steaks to Burgers. For a moment I scanned some of those menus... But for me, I know I'd feel better (i.e. not get stuck) and be more satisfied than with something I'd normally eat. Because travel can so easily become a warrant to eat naughtily, can't it! So I got a small cup of tomato soup, and made myself a salad at the salad bar with shredded chicken. I wasn't perfect, there were definitely bacon bits invited to the party, but there were also sprouts and spinach and carrots. It was delicious - well the amount i could eat was. It's really hard to make a bandster sized salad with all those options! Then after, at my gate, I got myself a bowl of watermelon as a snack. I enjoyed everything, and it was nice to know I had ended my vacation on a more normal note eating wise.
I look forward to getting back to the 180s, and I don't think it should be too hard - cutting alcohol out completely, watching my sodium and not having silly boy friends ordering desert and every corner! It's also my t.o.t.m. so really, 2 lbs aint no thang.
