Vacation Was Good To Me...

Vacation was good to me.

My husband and I went overseas to Europe to visit his daughter in Copenhagen, Denmark for a week and then we decided since we were already flying over there why not do another week and spend it in Rome.

We had an absolute blast in Denmark.  It was our favorite part of our trip.  While in Denmark we mostly walked everywhere.  We took very little public transportation... and when we did it was just to mark off that we tried every possible way of transportation they offered.


My step daughter was the best tour guide I've ever had.  She met us each day (by biking in 40-45 minutes most days... only a few did she take the metro) and took us everywhere there was to go in the City.  We also took a day trip to Malmo, Sweden (we took the train for that... can't walk that one).

In the 6 days we spent with her, we walked a total of 65 miles.  It was a lot for me, but I planned on walking a ton.  Which is why three months ago I got myself back to the gym.

Once we left Denmark we went to Rome, Italy for another 6 days.  With the exception of the ride from the airport to our hotel (and to another hotel) as well as one train trip to north Rome... we walked everywhere there too!  Another 65 miles.

My feet, legs and knees hurt towards the end of the trip that's for sure.  We had to take more resting breaks, but my husband never complained about that (thankfully).

During the trip I had my coffee twice a day (capuccino's), ate what I wanted (but listened to my stomach when it was full - at least 95% of the time I listened) and had dessert in Rome every day.  I didn't want to spend my time focusing on what I was eating... so I just quit when I was full and ordered what I wanted.

I was plesantly surprised coming home.  By the time I got home I had lost 4 lbs on my vacation.  I got myself right back on track with eating and managed to lose another 1.6 since we got back last Friday.

I am extremely proud of that 5.6 lost (in three weeks).  I have zero regrets!  Honestly, even if I gained I wouldn't have regretted one choice we made.  My goal for this coming week is to get back to working out more again.  I needed a break.  I need to get my steps back up there... which obviously means more miles walked.

Have a great week everyone!

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!
