Happy New Year and Weigh In

I am back from vacation!  I know you are very excited.  I am very excited because I got on the scale for the first time since my December 12 post and I only gained .4 pound!  I decided that over the holiday I would continue with my workouts, indulge a little and be mindful of what I was putting in my body...but take a break from the scale.  I was so happy with my weigh in this morning.  In years past I have put on a lot more holiday weight, so I will take a .4 gain as a victory.  Here are the details:

Previously:  -5.0
This Week:  +0.4
Total:           -4.6

We just returned from vacation in Carefree, AZ...I did a few short posts from Arizona, but tomorrow I will be posting more pictures and my review of the resort where we stayed which was called The Boulders.  I will give you a small preview of the review and tell you we thought the place was pretty awesome.

My favorite cactus
Small cactus fact for you that I learned on my trip.  These cacti live for hundreds of years (some up to 300) and they grow for 50 - 75 years before they begin to grow their first arm.  Crazy right?  So this cactus I am with is much older than the one in the background on the right.  I found it very interesting since I had no idea cacti lived for so long.

We had such a great time that it was hard to leave, but I am happy to be home.  There is no place like home, right?! 

I am pretty sure Sammy felt the same way.  She got to vacation at Bed and Biscuits Pet Spa here in Houston.  She loves it there (and I love for her to be there); she gets to play with all the other dogs during the day at day care and they have a doggie pool...she loves that part.

Yes, that is Friends on in the background
She looked happy to be home too, don't you think?


  1. Looks like a great trip, Sammy loves watching Friends too!,

  2. It's a good thing she loves watching Friends! LOL
