I am back from whirlwind travels. I hit Chicago, LA and NY in a span of 12 days. Crazy!
I’m sad to report I have not lost an ounce….but I haven’t gained either! I did really good in all 3 places about walking and getting a ton of water in during the day. Staying hydrated during a trip is KEY. So, why didn’t I lose weight? Oh that’s simple….I had dessert every single night. No lie. Suddenly when I wasn’t home it was like I was on vacation! Crème brûlée in Chicago…then LA (twice)…then NYC. Oy. I swear, I could LIVE on desserts. Legit.I kept justifying it in my head by saying “Look how much you walked! You didn’t snack once!” – but we both know those are bullshit reasons to eat dessert every freaking night.
I blogged about being nervous about meeting my new clients – well, I’m happy to report all 3 trips were a success. I made great first impressions – and I wasn’t self-conscious or freaked out at all. OK….a little. Haha. There is always a voice in your head that says “I’m not what you thought I would be, am I?”. Ironically, 2 of the clients I talk to the most weren’t at all what I pictured. One was nearly 7 feet tall (I felt like I was standing in a hole) and the other was about 4-tall. Voices can be deceiving! 🙂
Aside from travel and weight staying the same….I don’t have a ton to report. I have a pair of jeans that stopped fitting – they totally fit now. Yay! Since I got home and saw the scale isn’t moving, I jumped back into tracking everything I ate. I swear, I will be someone who has to track their food until I die. I let myself get a little lax one week and suddenly I’m surrounded by cupcakes and caramel macchiatos!
No one said this process would be easy – I guess I just didn’t realize how crazy the path would be!
How are you guys doing? Feeling the seasonal effects kick in and change your routine?
