Survived Vacation!!

Santa Cruz with the kids and family was great this weekend.  Had a rough start but ended up being great.  Weight loss for about 1 1/2 weeks was only 1lb but it was over vacation so that is good.  I think my hardest struggle was drinking since it was my daughters 21st birthday.  I like to drink and hang out so I am sure that contributed to the problem.  Does anyone have any suggestions for low calorie/low carb drinking with no carbonation.  I had cranberry and vodka most of the time but I also had a few glasses of wine.  The food choices didn't seem to be a problem other than I cheated a few times taking bites of my husbands french fries LOL.   I walked and walked and walked so I didn't gain and it seemed to work.

I had sugar free butter becan ice cream.  It made my stomach hurt.  I want something sweet but I don't want to cheat anyone have any good ideas?

Well heres to another loss in the right direction


  1. Something sweet. I like to blend a few frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, ect... with a little sweet and low and a dash of protein powder. It's cold, sweet, tart and good for you.


  2. PS... Good Job on Vacation. It's easy for things to go sideways when you are away from your normal daily routine and trying to change your life. But you stuck to it and you came prepared and that is one of the biggest keys. Being prepared!
