Vacations, exercise and Weight Watchers, Oh MY!

We spent a week in Los Angeles, visiting friends and family and of course...going to Disneyland. I used Map My Walk to see how far I walked each day but forgot to turn it off while we were on rides, so it recorded the length of those too. I'm not sure how accurate that would be, but I'm thinking it was probably between 3 and 4 miles a day worth of walking.

My ankles and feet were on fire the whole time, but exercising like that felt kind of amazing and I enjoyed it. When we got home, I started up with the 1.5 mile walk every day with the dog. I didn't do it on Saturday, we were resting and catching up on sleep, but I took him out Sunday in the rain, wind and icy snow and we did a little over a mile. Not our normal 1 1/2 to 2 miles, but it was a good start and I didn't let the weather stop me from going, so I'm feeling quite proud of myself for that accomplishment.

Also, I decided to re-join Weight Watchers. I was a member for a few months three years ago and dropped out when I signed on for my first go-round with weight loss surgery and had a specialized program built for me.

Since I joined on one of the last days of our vacation I blew my points out of the roof but now that I'm home and getting settled back into a normal daily routine, my points are getting better and I'm not blowing through them and the food I'm eating is getting healthier with each meal.

We won't talk about the two boxes of Girl Scout cookies I forgot I'd pre-ordered a few months ago that arrived today.
