Hey everyone, I’m back from vacay, a couple of pounds heavier but not too upset about it — mainly because most of the weight consists of the multiple servings of chocolate cake, cheesecake, and macaroni & cheese with crumbled bacon I happily consumed while on board the luxurious Amtrak Coast Starlight!
And since we won’t be riding that train again for, oh, at least a year, I know those pounds will melt away as quickly as they rose up. But mm-mm, they sure were good goin’ down!
Anyway, I thought about doing a “Friday Five” where I’d list the five reasons I gained weight, but then realized there’s really only one reason: I didn’t track my calories, so I never knew whether or not I was in a consistent calorie deficit. And actually, since I was intentionally taking a “diet break,” and eating lots of cheesecake, etc. (see above), I KNOW I wasn’t in a caloric deficit.
And I didn’t care, ’cause I was on vacay!
Actually, our cats weren’t too thrilled to see us go, but we mollified them by putting them in a luxury kennel, complete with flat screen TV.
So there ya go, one pretty lame blog post, but written by someone who had a nice vacation. Hope you had/are having/will have one, too! See ya Monday!
