Back From Vacation

October 21, 2008 · 5 comments

Had a great time in Mexico even though the weather didn’t cooperate - mostly cloudy with periods of rain. Still we accomplished what we wanted to accomplish, which was mostly all about just relaxing and trying not to think about all the worries of the world, be they personal or global.

I’d like to say I watched what I ate and drank while on vacation but I didn’t. Buffet breakfasts, lunches on the beach and gourmet dinners. Many rounds of fruity drinks that I am sure were very calorie laden. Barely any water drunk. Minimal exercise except for walking along the beach or 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen ,which is a bit like walking through a gauntlet. Shouts of “Senor Whiskers, good Cuban Cigars here. Ganja? Cheech and Chong!”, “Come see my high quality Junk,” and “Hey, come over here and let me rip you off” emanated from both sides of the street as we walked through.

The amazing thing, however, is that I come back weighing the same as when I left. Didn’t gain a single pound! How does that work?

Good to be home.

Don’t question it! Just accept it. ;)

Sounds like you deserve to take another vacation!

Vacations are all about indulging, and even though you think you didn’t go off the wagon too much, I find that when I am watching my weight, even though I indulge on vacation, I don’t go overboard (which got me to 209 pounds in the first place!).

Great job!

Yes, accept the maintenance and be happy!

It’s a win win situation. You ate some good food, recharged your batteries and didn’t gain a pound. Now you’ll be ready to roll!

I hope so…
