Pack it up Pack it In.

 (This is not my scale, or my mom's scale. :) )

I survived a 10 hour roadtrip, sans my husband, with a 5 year old and a 2 year old. I packed a bunch of special treats for them, but didn't eat any of them myself. Woohoo!

We are now in Utah, at my parents' house. I will be spending the rest of Win, Lose, or Blog on vacation which makes me a bit nervous because vacation = eating delicious foods (to me anyway). I'm just watching my portions and will be heading over to my sister's treadmill first thing in the morning. I would be really bummed if I lost all of my walk/jogging progress over the next 3 weeks.

I packed very differently for this vacation. Never before in my life have I packed workout clothes for my vacation. And most notably I packed my scale because my mom's scale has been known to add 10 pounds to your weight after a shower (true story!).  Little did I know she has new scales now. I weighed myself on my scale this morning and I'm down 3 pounds. Totally exciting! Then I weighed myself on my mom's scale and I was down 5. Why did I pack that thing again? :)

So since the beginning of this adventure I am now down 17.5 pounds.  Truthfully I would like to have lost more at this point, but I am really excited about the 3 pounds I lost this week. I'm going hard these last two weeks and see what I can do.  If I can finish strong on vacation, I can keep going all the way to my goal, right?

Have a great week!
