I'm Back, Baby!

I'm back from vacation, and I had an AMAZING time!  Orlando was SOOOOO much fun!  I have never been to a city so tourist-focused.  Wow!  Orlando, The Land of Gift Shops and Mickey Mouse.  There was even an electrical pole shaped like Mickey.

We started out at Cocoa Beach.

Then we went to Islands of Adventure.  Every store had a different theme, and the rides were great.  If you've been reading for a while, you will know that I was very nervous that I wasn't going to fit on some of the rides at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios.  I am extremely happy to report that I rode on every single ride.  It was a tight squeeze on a couple of them (Rip Ride Rock-It and Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey).  If I hadn't lost 20 pounds already, I definitely wouldn't have made it.

We also went to Universal Studios Florida.  It was like we stepped right into Hollywood.  There was so much to see!

After two days of theme parks, we were ready to cool off.  We went to a waterpark called Wet N' Wild.  It was great!  The rides were crazy there.  I've never seen so many tube slides packed into such a small area, definitely a fun way to end the vacation.

The vacation was just what I needed.  I was starting to feel burnt out from working and finishing up my MBA.  The only downside of the vacation was I went a little crazy with the food and didn't get back on track when I got back last week.  I'm trying not to beat myself up about it, but it is hard because I know instead of taking a few steps backward, I could be a few steps further ahead by now.  The only thing I can do at this point is to get back on track quick.  I am recommitted as of today.  I will be weighing in next Monday for my first weigh-in in about a month.  I'm nervous about what the scale is going to say.  Hopefully it won't be too bad.  I hate that I worked so hard for four months and then feel like I've undone so much progress in just a couple of weeks.  But...I'm still committed to losing weight and I know I am going to see this through this time.  I know I might stumble again, but it's okay.  That's life.
