Vacation weight gain

So, I'm back from my work trip/vacation and three pounds heavier.

I went into the trip with the best intentions.

I packed my workout gear, since I knew I'd have access to a gym, and told myself I wasn't going to overindulge.

That went out the window on the first day. After a day of traveling and setting up for the exhibit, I found myself sitting at the hotel bar needing a beer and stuffing my face with a burger and fries.

And it just continued to spiral out of control from there.

Pretty much everything I ate was fried.

It got so bad I actually started to crave a salad. And then I washed it down with a couple of adult beverages, OK more than a couple, in fact enough that I found myself on stage singing karaoke. And for the record, I can't sing...at all.

But I mean seriously, did I really think I was going to spend three days in New Orleans and not drink?

So anyway, after New Orleans my parents picked me up to take me to Florida. My mom, a blunt, no nonsense kind of woman, greeted me with, "Man, you really have gained weight and you look tired....here want a beignet?"

I told her she was correct on all of the above and if we could please save the insults for tomorrow. I was only working with four hours of sleep and couldn’t handle it. And then I grabbed the beignets and stuffed my pie hole.

I spent the next three days at my parent’s house. My mom cooked all of my favorite meals and had plenty of treats to snack on. I went out with old friends and caught up over, yes, more drinks.

So now I’m back at home, exhausted, and fatter. I never even touched my workout clothes. (Well, I did shuffle them around in my suitcase some.) But I’m serious about getting it together now.

There is nothing like a trip to the beach to remind you how out of shape you are. And I wasn't even in a bathing suit, I wore pants. Yes, I wore pants to the beach because I'm fat, and my summer clothes don’t fit.

I still have a couple of months before the weather here will require me shed the layers of clothes that are currently hiding my flaws.

So, guess I better get off my lazy ass and hit the gym. And on Monday I’ll be back to counting points.

Yes, Monday, I realize that that is still a few days away but that’s my official online Weight Watchers start day, I currently have no food at home and need to stock up on healthy items, I have a date over the weekend and I’m not the type of girl who orders salad when I’m offered a free meal, and Two Ton Tilly isn’t starting until Monday and we are supposed to be doing this together, right?

Those are my excuses and I’m stickin' to 'em.
