Friday weigh in

Happy Friday y'all!

This one is going to be short and sweet! It's been a crazy busy week and an even busier weekend. I'm traveling for work - driving to Cincinnati - and gone from Saturday - Wednesday.

This will be my 2nd time traveling since surgery. It's a little tricky with food but totally doable. I learned my lesson on the last trip and this time paid $20 extra per night at the hotel to have a fridge. That way I can bring protein shakes, yogurt, cheese etc. The cooler will be packed for the drive to keep me out of the drive-through!

Traveling by myself in the car used to be one of my favorite things - I could eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted BY MYSELF! It's a little sad when I think about it - my trips revolved around food - always. This time, instead of researching all the restaurants and food opportunities, I've scoped out the river running trails and the Bikram yoga studio. Life is so different now and it's SO so so so much better.

Now for this weeks numbers!

  1. You are doing so awesome! You looked great in the last pictures I saw of you too. =)

  2. 3 sounds like a happy number to me. Congrats on the weight-loss. You are definitely shrinking now.

    At my size I don't really enjoy traveling for work and have turned down a lot of opportunities including a trip to Australia :(

    You are well prepared for your trip and I will be interested to see how it goes. Enjoy the ride.

  3. Congratulations! What a great weigh in, and an awesome accomplishment to lose over 60 pounds!

  4. great job girlie!

  5. next time tell the hotel you need a fridge for some medication that you have to take and you'll get it for free. :)

  6. Planning ahead will really help you out on a trip...I try to do it as much as possible. In fact, I always have 1 oz. of almonds in my purse :)
