"I'm light as a feather!"

In the beginning of this week, my husband and I ventured to Garmicsh, Germany for a 2 night, 3 day stay at the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort, centered in the gorgeous Alps! It was our 3 year wedding anniversary on the 15th. Prior to leaving, I made a pact with a friend, that I wouldn't do my weekly weigh-in this Friday (which has typically turned into Saturday's) due to the fact that vacation has an infamous way of putting ~on~ the pounds. And that wasn't really what I needed this week.

But this morning I had Horton on my mind. The scene where he was feeling "light as a feather" was running on replay in my mind from the moment I woke up. So I took it as a good sign that I should definitely weigh myself this morning!

Down almost three pounds from last week!!!! Though my week hasn't been the best with working out, I did make great food choices, and still was very active through out my vacation. I walked around the little towns (for shopping of course!), and through some of the trails in the mountains. We even took our daughter swimming at least 3 times during our stay. I also made it to the resort's gym Tuesday morning for an hour work out. Eating was pretty far from my mind for the most part, since we were so busy! The night of our anniversary, I ordered a chicken bacon melt sandwich. Certainly not the best food choice. BUT! My band turned it into one! Two bites in, I had to leave the table, because it got stuck! So I ended up only eating the grilled chicken with cheese on it. Bread and bacon had to hit the high road!

This is all quite a trip. Working out while on vacation!? Not eating the bacon?!? So happy to say that the old me has somewhat disappeared, and the healthier me is here for the long haul!


  1. Great loss and it sounds like a very nice anniversary.

  2. Great news ! We went to Garmisch when we lived in Germany decades ago and I still remember it (staying in the Alps :) Love that you've moved onto the healthier you !

  3. Sounds like a wonderful weekend.

    Bread is NOT a band choice....LOL glad you learned it, sorry it was the hard way.

    Great loss you are doing things right it seems!
