Back from Vacation

I spent the weekend up at the cabin for my wife, Claire's, birthday.  I had a ton of fun.  I did some swimming, some boating, and quite a bit of lounging.  I wasn't as active as I wanted because I've been having some trouble with some vicious shin splints and didn't want to aggravate them.  Every time I've had shin splints in the past I've given up on my exercise plan.  Not this time.  I'm going to be careful, but I'm going to keep my eyes on the prize.

There were plenty of pitfalls this weekend, however.  From salted-in-shell peanuts to birthday pie for Claire to Wienerschnitzel at the campy German restaurant in Park Rapids to S'mores.  I wasn't able to resist all of these temptations, but I feel like I partook less often than I would have in the past.  I suppose the scale will tell tonight.

I did manage to make some healthy choices this weekend.  I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich at an A&W and at one point, I walked out of a candy shop because I couldn't take the temptation anymore.

See you tonight for my weigh-in.  Post your guesses for my result tonight in the comments section.  Remember, last week was 251.4.  Good luck.


  1. Good job resisting temptation!

    Plus, you've changed lifestyle/diet choices and continually realize they have a great impact on your health - sounds like a very good change from the past.

  2. Sounds like you had fun! Good job Tralle!

    My guess... 249.9
