Vacation!

 
Hanging in Lahaina.

I got to take a vacation in June, the first time away from the hubby and kids (for 5 days). I had never been to Hawaii (Maui) and I was looking forward to it. My plan for the diet was to maintain, but enjoy myself. I was going to eat what I wanted but make wise choices. Did I have dessert? Yep, and I enjoyed it! But I don’t drink, so I wasn’t drinking a bunch of calories, which I think is a saving grace.

We did a lot of walking and shopping, and I think having a house versus a hotel was awesome. We were able to get cereal and milk for breakfast (what I do at home) and had good snack choices (OK, Kettle corn is probably not the best choice, but it’s better than chocolate, LOL).

We did a hike up to I’ao Needle on Sunday. It was beautiful-so green! It reminded me of home, it was even cooler up there! I had 5 days to enjoy Maui and I did! We did a Luau, and it was beautiful! We hit the beach and had some fun, saw the Cliff Dive ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel. I even got to shop at Costco and Walmart (both carried way different stuff than on the mainland)!

A little bit of fun on Kaanapali Beach!

My awesome Mom and I. She planned the trip for the group to celebrate a retirement, and my 35th birthday!

I think our best meal was at Fleetwood’s on Front Street in lahaina. It was a great view, awesome service, and amazing food-this is where I did desert the last time. It was founded by Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac. It was so fun!

So with all this fun, I got home on Tuesday (late!) and got back to life. I went to Weight Watchers and weighed in and only gained 1 lb!!! I was thrilled with that! The problem was getting into the lack of tracking and exercising. I gained 2 lb the next week because of Lincoln’s birthday and 4th of July. I didn’t exercise and I ate like I was. Whoops. But now 2.5 weeks later, I am back to tracking, and exercising. I have a whole different post for the Black Belt test and that’s coming up next. So moral of the story, enjoy your vacation, don’t feel guilty if you gain a bit, but when you come back, get back on track right away! 🙂
