Vegas Results

June 24, 2008 · 5 comments

There are two kinds of trips - business and pleasure. Over the last year I have had some success in watching my diet and exercising while on business trips but it’s a different story when I’m on vacation.

And I think that’s OK.

I suppose it’s easy for me to say this given how bad I have been lately, but I don’t feel the least bit guilty about not thinking about what I ate or drank or not exercising. This was a vacation. A time to get away from the stresses of life, which unfortunately for me includes stressing about not following a health plan like I would like to be.

I got some good comments on my last post about how I should find little ways to exercise (and I did get a lot of walking in, but that was just because everything is so big), but ultimately I followed Laura’s:

I hope you’re having fun in Vegas! I admit I am jealous. If I were you I would concentrate on having fun and not worry about dieting/exercising … but that’s just me.

The good and perhaps surprising news is that when I go to Vegas I don’t drink much other than coffee and water, and indeed on this trip I had only one Bloody Mary as the only alcoholic drink I had the whole time. I did do a morning buffet every day but just took one trip and didn’t go too crazy. Because I was so busy gambling I didn’t eat much throughout the day.

And if my scale is to believed, my wallet isn’t the only thing that came home lighter - I actually lost 4 pounds, although I suspect that has something to do with water weight given how dry it was there.

In any case, I blew off some stress and I’m ready to get back at it.

Welcome back, John!

Lighter you = good!

Lighter wallet = not so much…

Glad you had fun anyway!

That would be the only way I would be lighter coming back from Vegas, my wallet …

Welcome back John. Hope you won big!

Alas, no - but I came home with money I was prepared to lose, so that’s always good!

It doesnt matter why you lost those 4lbs, the fact is the scale is 4lbs down and that has got to be a good thing.

Welcome back - and you are right…we need breaks once in a while. We’re only human…
