I’m back in the room after a long day of fun and relaxation, and I thought I’d take a few moments to share some pics from the trip. Obviously, I’ll post more pictures later. I just couldn’t wait to post a few (okay, several) now. 🙂 I hope everyone is enjoying their week as much as I am!
Oh, and dinner last night: lobster, prime rib, mashed potatoes and vegetables. Like I said…not deprived. Delicious! Tonight I had a grilled chicken sandwich with caramelized onions, a little bacon, lettuce and tomato. I’m sure I’ll eat something more interesting tomorrow. 🙂
If you look at the middle of the pic you’ll see me swimming back from the buoy. I swam to the buoy and back several times in an attempt to get my heart pumping and it worked. I also worked out for 67 minutes last night (52 on the treadmill and 15 on the elliptical) then 45 minutes tonight (30 on the treadmill and 15 on the elliptical.) I hope this pattern is enough to make the scale happy upon my return. 😉
This little yellow duck is an ‘anchor.’ Each week someone from our Weight Watchers meeting takes him home. He’s been all over the country and world with the members of our group. His name is Brightweight, and his job is the serve as a reminder that we have a group to go back to. I love this little quacky duck.
Have I ever mentioned how extraordinarily wonderful it feels to hold me head high? Even in a swimsuit on a beach, surrounded by friends and strangers, I feel comfortable with myself and my progress. Also, walking on the beach is a breeze. I remember crying because it felt impossibly hard two years ago and even last year. Those days are gone friends…Boyfriend and I went for a walk down the beach today, and I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else. Life is so good when you take control of it.
After a day of laying in the sun and splashing around, I’m a little pink. I wore sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. It happens. I’m just glad it’s not too bad. I’d rather eat a lobster than look like one.
I feel so good today. I feel as though I can do anything. Tomorrow the plan is to shop then lay on the beach. At some point I’ll work out, and I’ll enjoy dinner with my hot boyfriend (who is already tan for the record.)
It’s been a great trip so far, and I’m so excited to have a few more days here….Until then….
Don’t forget to come back for tomorrow’s post – falling in love as an overweight girl.
