Much like the rest of the bloggers, this blogger has not had an easy time lately. I spent a week in Las Vegas for a Catering Conference, imagine that a conference dedicated solely to food and beverage and located in Las Vegas… what a nightmare! Of course it was a wonderful time, the weather was beautiful and every second I had I was outside walking but the food was… well delicious. I have been doing weight watchers for about 6 weeks now, and it has worked out for me, I’m down 13lbs total. I decided that while in Vegas I wasn’t going to count, I was just going to let myself eat but not over eat and walk enough to work it off. It seemed to work out for me, I didn’t put on any weight, however I feel very sluggish after coming back. I think it’s important that people remember why they eat healthy and work out, it’s not about the weight that you are or the weight that you lose, it’s about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, doing what is good for your body and feeling good.
After returning from Las Vegas I have found it difficult to do anything. This winter weather is really killing my mood and my desire to run, which I miss. I know that I need to not make excuses and just get out and do something but can’t it just be spring already?!?!?! This weekend I leave for Cancun, I’m going to take running gear and run on the beach, that should get me back in to the routine and I am going to count what I eat. I now realize that stopping even for that small amount of time can seriously throw you off.
Happy first day of spring tomorrow!
