A little up, a little down – it’s all good!

Up a little this morning:

186.4

but ya know, it’s OK! I did a whole bunch of long walks last week, mostly alone but one with Mr. 50by60, just around the neighborhood, enjoying all the fresh graffiti.

So that’s something we both enjoy! And over the next few days, we’ll be doing something ELSE we both enjoy on a regular basis!

whaa

That’s right — we’re going on another train trip!

You thought WHAT?? Oh come on, get your minds outta the gutter!

Anyway, we’re taking the fabulous Amtrak Coast Starlight up to Olympia, Washington for a church thingy, which should be lots of fun (as long as I don’t run into anyone who’s heard about my recent rants against church men telling church women how to dress and behave)!

And of course, being on the train, and then at a hotel, and then at a church thingy, means pretty much the same thing to us lifelong dieters:

So I might not do a weigh-in next week! I’ll do some sort of post, though, to let you know how the trip went, and maybe share some photos too. Meanwhile, hope YOU have a great week, and remember:

The Not Quite Ready For Prime Time Blog Post!

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.
