Don’t forget the Healthy Heart Weekend is this weekend!! Sign up if you want to participate!
Back to routine! Well, I have been back to routine for a few days now, but the blog hasn’t been. My voice has just about returned. It was gone since Friday. I had a horrible sore throat that developed in Disney, like it went through a meat grinder. No congestion or fever or anything like that. Thank goodness, or it would have been miserable for the last few days of the trip.
Wednesday is my normal weigh-in day, so I hopped on the scale and MaryLou told me I was down 2 pounds. So – I guess I really did not gain anything during vacation! Yippee!! Now it is back to the 90/10 eating again. We have a Mardi Gras party coming up in a couple weeks, so I have to keep it together
Breakfast was back to Bagel Wednesday! Have you missed it? I did.
Ah routine, feels so good.
One other note about our trip. We stayed in a Disney resort. Melisa asked if it was more cost effective to stay on the property versus a close by hotel. There are a lot of factors that go into the cost, but there really aren’t any hotels super close by that aren’t at least on Disney property. There are the Disney resorts, and then the hotels on property not owned by Disney (like Marriot, Hilton, etc). Those are more expensive. Of course, we stayed in a value resort, which makes the difference. I suppose if you stayed off property that you could get a cheaper hotel room, but then you would have to pay for parking at $15 per day at the parks. You get free transportation to and from the airport and transportation around the parks and Downtown Disney when you stay on property. That can be big savings without having to rent a car or pay for parking. Not to mention the extra park hours. So, you can stay on property on a value budget (as we did). It’s also less expensive to go at this time of year.
Anyhoo – Wednesdays are my busy days. I worked right up until I had to leave for literacy tutoring and didn’t have time for lunch. I grabbed a coffee at McDonalds, which is where we do the tutoring.
You have to tutor in a public place and this is close for both of us. It works out surprisingly well. We just find a quiet corner and work.
After I got home, I had the lunch of champions! (x2)
These are sesame seed/honey cashews from Trader Joe’s from our trip a few weeks ago. I forbade the opening of the bag until we got back from vacation.
John also made me a latte. See how we are back to routine around here?
Pixie was not that happy with us when we first got back and was a little skittish for a couple days, but now she is Ms. Lappington again.
Quick dinner tonight as I was really hungry by the time that came around. My sister had a roast turkey for the Super Bowl party and it was the biggest of all the turkeys raised. I think this one was 38 pounds. That meant leftover turkey for all and I have had turkey for dinner 3 nights this week!
Tonight was barbecue style. I am now tired of turkey.
Poor John caught something on the plane home. He is snuffly and congested now, but no sore throat. The opposite of what I had. Poor guy.
Being the good wife that I am, I left him at home while I went out to be social.
This is tea. I had enough coffee for the day (I know, I know!), so I decided on Peach Ginger tea.
I did bring John a cookie home, though. I have to pamper him a little 😉
