Back from Vegas- Get Off Your Broom Week 3 Update

Las Vegas was fantastic and I am happy to report that I maintained my weight. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I was away from home for 5 days, 2 of which I spent with one of my best friends and we DID Las Vegas. I had so much fun and managed to not only NOT have a hangover but I exercised 3 times this past week. I worked out with a routine that I could do in my hotel room, my friend, her husband and I hiked in Red Rock Canyon (so beautiful!) and then we walked the Las Vegas strip... till 4am (It counts).  We also hit a strip club for a friend's Bachelor party and had some fantastic margaritas as we did the whole Las Vegas touristy thing. It was great!

Check it out...

That shirt was way out of my comfort zone but I wore it and I felt pretty good in it. This week was fabulous on lots of levels. My work presentations were very productive, I ate healthy, got in some great exercise and I got to spend time with my friends.

This coming week I will be really watching what I eat. I think I eat a fairly healthy diet and will be journaling what I eat again, that is one of the keys for me to be successful and also one of the important pieces of the Weight Watchers Program that I have been skipping. I want to eat much more whole foods and a lot fewer processed foods. I also plan to step up my exercise routine. I joined a fitness challenge with work and plan to walk 20 miles per week for the next 3 months!

I don't have to go back to Las Vegas until December so hopefully things will calm down a bit!!

Have a lovely week!


  1. Wow, sounds as if you did great! I'd love to go to Las Vegas some day... and if I told the BF, he'd start packing right away! But we're broke (and far away), so that will have to wait a few years...

  2. That is really impressive - you did fantastically well, if it were me I probably would have put on a few pounds...LOL.
    Beautiful pictures and that hike sounds great...
    Glad you had a wonderful time!!

  3. Yay, for a wonderful Vegas trip! I'm very happy (and proud) you maintained your weight while in the city of excess.

    The top looks great on you!

  4. It was wonderful, I think all the walking really helped me maintain. Now to get my butt in gear and start to lose again :)
