Weigh Day (week forty-seven)

Alright folks…I am back from vacation (if we can even call it that) and I weighed in for the first time this morning…

That is right – I did not take my scale after all!  After much deliberation, I decided I needed to give myself an opportunity to see what “real life” would be like for me.  I say “real life” because I mean a life in which I am not constantly considering what every little bite of food will mean for the scale (or my waist line).  Now, not that I mean I went hog-wild and ate everything.  I did not.  I still ate sensibly, but certainly “off menu” compared to what I have been eating for the last 47 weeks.

Friday night I ate Moroccan (extremely delicious) – fresh, homemade from this tiny joint called Poccadio in Indy.  Saturday night I ate (what might be *the* best) Mexican food – again, fresh, homemade, mouth-watering Mexican food.  I had this stuffed pablano pepper with chicken and cheese – OH MY!  Sunday the girlies and I ate at a place called Chef Mike’s Charcoal Grill.  Nearly everything on the menu is cooked on a charcoal grill – even the pizza!  We had a pizza for an appetizer, and then I had the most delicious salad I have ever consumed! It was their grilled chicken strawberry salad.  The salad had fresh strawberries and mandarin orange segments paired with charcoal-grilled chicken.  The dressing was a homemade poppy seed vinaigrette…and I fell in love.  Seriously.

Okay, so enough reliving my food frenzy…which, I should note, I only ate out once each day (dinner).  For the other two meals (and snacks) I packed food and prepared in our hotel room.

As for weigh in…

206.4

That is 1.6 pounds down from week 46’s weigh in!  Not too shabby for “off menu vacation eating”!!!  I should also mention I have not worked out since last Wednesday night!  That is a full SIX days of no hard work and sweating…and my body and mind are ready for it!  I am getting right back in to the groove of things starting tomorrow with Denise.  I am *seriously* looking forward to it!

How was your week?
