Hello everyone! I’m back and boy do I miss that warm Florida sunshine! This morning I wore sandals to work and get there and it starts snowing and was only 20 degrees! Oh Darci…you’re not in Florida anymore!
I had a great time and will give a recap at the end of this post! WARNING – Long post!
I forgot to take a picture of my breakfast Thursday morning…I was out of the groove! But I had oatmeal and an english muffin w/cream cheese for 4 points. I didn’t have oatmeal the whole time I was gone and it was great to come home and have it! I love that stuff!
My morning flew so fast I didn’t even have a chance to have my morning snack!
I had a “date” with my sister last night. She started reading the Twilight books while we were in Florida and wanted to see the movie and so of course I wanted to watch it with her, even though I’ve already seen it! So we got some supper, rented the movie, and snuggled in for a little “Edward”! I had a Subway ham & turkey sub and strawberries w/ 1/4c grape nuts and yogurt for 9 points.
After the movie I grabbed an ice cream sandwich for 2 points to satisfy my sweet tooth and snuggled in with my hubby for while he was watching basketball before bed. It’s so good to be home with him! (forgot to photograph again…sorry!)
POINTS = 20
WATER = 112 oz
EXERCISE = none
Ok on to the Florida recap! I tried to stay on track while I was there and feel that I was very successful at that. I wrote down everything I ate in my tracker (which I think I left at my Grandpa’s house :( ).
I exercised EVERYDAY too! A lot of days it was just a 20-30 minute run, but then we would also go on bike rides, walks to and on the beach, and play tennis. It was so great to see my sisters! I love them SO much! And my Grandpa spoils us like crazy! Gotta love him! Especially since he put up with all us girls in his house for so long!
I found a ww meeting down there to go to on Tuesday (my normal ww wi day) and guess what…….lost 3.2 lbs!!!! (total of 41.4!!!) And that was all while on vaca!! I was so proud of myself!!I could hardly believe it. But when I looked back over the week I was there it explained why. When we went out I ordered grilled chicken and instead of fries I got steamed veggies. And other times I would split a meal with one of my sisters. And we were also able to cook at my Grandpa’s house, so that helped too.
I, of course, did some shopping while I was down there. Got a few more SIZE 10 capris & pants. And also I got a SIZE 8 dress from The Gap!! When I put the size 10 on it was too big and was hesitant to try on the size 8, but I grabbed it just to see and it fit great so of course I had to get it! I ended up getting a total of 4 dresses while in Florida. I’m excited to wear them now and not have to wear my “spanx” aka “magic panties” to suck in all those unsightly chubs. Feels awesome!
I got home on Wednesday night and it was SO nice to see my hubby and my lil pup Abby. It always is nice to get away, but that feeling of home when you get back is indescribable!
So here are just a few pictures from my time in Florida.
Bike riding with my sister (the one from Georgia) – and look we even had helmets on! I don’t have one, borrowed hers, but I am going to buy one for biking this summer. I just need to convince DH to get one too.
This is my tennis pose – I’m really not an avid player, but we had a good time the few times we played while we were in Florida. And then what do I do…forget my rackets at my Grandpa’s house. So now I can’t play till he comes back to Iowa in May…silly me!
Had to get a picture of us by the palm tree. We always try to get a picture by this one. We’ve done it for years, pri almost 12-15! I just love all the beautiful vegetation in Florida. I wish we could have palm trees in Iowa!
I had a three hour layover in Detroit on the way home and had to go from concourse A to concourse C and do that you have to walk in a tunnel that goes under the tarmac. They have this really neat light show set to music. I was pretty impressed…hadn’t seen anything like it before! Here are a few pictures…but they don’t do it justice!
