Taking It Off Together Tuesday Week #5

This week has been rather rough on me. I went to Vegas on Sunday and came back on Wednesday. My whole time in Vegas was filled with eating a bunch of crap, drinking too many sodas, swelling up from the combination of soda, heat, and stress created by my ex husband. Yesterday, we headed out to the beach/boardwalk in Santa Cruz where I ate more crap, consumed more soda, and swelled up again after it was slowly going down. Hey, I guess I should be grateful that the gain was only 2 pounds, and that I didn't have to report the FOUR pounds gain I had right after I came back from Vegas. LOL

OK, now that I'm back, I should try to get on track. There's a 5k & 10k fun run & walk coming up in September, and I'd like to attempt the 5k walk. I'm going to have to start training/walking more, because just walking around yesterday for several hours has my heels hurting (which I usually get anyways), a backache which makes me want to walk hunched over (but I'm not), and just general soreness. Of course these are the things I deal with anytime I do anything past my normal physical activity level. With thyroid disease, I get sore very easily. When I was still working, I would go on my breaks and afterwards would find it very hard to stand up because everything HURT. But I figure, if I keep working on things and lose weight, maybe it won't be so bad. That's why I'm glad I'm doing this meme. It really does help with all of your support. So, without further adieu:

Don't beat yourself up after gaining right after a vacation. You should treat yourself every once in a while or else it will just cause more stress!

Julie said...

You are right, going on vacation it's pretty dang good you only gained 2 lbs! Sounds like you are getting back on track & the walking 5K idea is a great one! Good Luck!

Hang in there! We can do this. It's really hard I'm finding when I get out of my normal schedule. I guess something to work on. A new week a new start is how we have to look at it I think.

Chris said...

ahhhh, dont you love those buffets in Vegas....this is me "I have to eat it all NOW, cuz I dont know when I will EVER eat this again!" I can never go to a buffet again :)
But really, 2 pounds gain is very good, especially after Vegas AND Santa Cruz, I love that place too! Garlic Fries......sigh.......

Dette said...

Oh man - you did REALLY good if you only gained 2 pounds after a Vegas trip! Last time I went, I put on 5 extra - lol - so don't be too hard on yourself.

We all need to live a little. :)

Clara said...

Sounds to me like I'd better continue avoiding Vegas. I'd never stand a chance if the food is really like all of you are saying.

With all that stress on top of all the food, you did well to only gain 2 pounds.
