My Reno weekend

Sunday, December 05, 2010

We went to Reno for an annual racing meeting (My hubby is president, I am secretary) and it went really well. We got alot done, very little arguing (with 10 men on the board, ya never know!) got to visit with our Utah and Vegas friends and my sister Becky (texwife) got to come for a few days too! so that means I had a gambling buddy. I didnt win any money but we had fun. We ate pretty well and I only had a few cocktails. We never made it to any dancing which I was bummed cause that is always good for some calorie burning but everyone was pretty mellow and we went to bed before midnight each night. Everyone else left on Saturday but Frank and I had a jacuzzi suite so we decided to stay and enjoy it, just the two of us. Here are some pictures from this morning as we were getting ready to leave.

What I didnt know, is that my hubby had (with the help of my daughters) got me some items from Victoria Secret, a bottle of champagne, candles, bubble bath etc. and had a whole romantic night set up for us on Saturday which was super sweet of him and we had a good time.

I felt self concious in the underthingys but thought, you know what? He will like it so I wore that tiny bra and panties with as much confidence as I could muster and put aside that voice that was saying how much more weight I had to lose and how my fat rolled here or there and I gave it my best shot. Uh, yea. It worked out. lol.

Then today, we had breakfast and headed a few hours down the mountain to where our racing group was going to be in a parade. We intended to stop in and say hello and then get going home. Instead, we walked the entire parade route, waving and passing out candy and petting lots of doggies! It turned out to be over 4.75 miles! Just as we got back to our truck, it began to rain!! Perfect timing!

And because who doesnt like these guys?

I dont think I have ever walked so far. Ever. We walked nonstop for over 2 hours so at least I got some excercise! My knee pain has backed off but I am going to my dr. on tuesday so will give an update on that. All in all, had a good weekend. I was not perfect, but I made progress! All I can ask of myself, right? It's not like I ate a bunch of pastry wrapped BRIE or something! (booyah Maia!!!!) Team Jan!

    You are such a little devil! It's good for my soul! Also, I appreciate the shout-out even if you were making fun of my diet!

    Meanwhile, I am going to Slam Team Jan!

    Hi Jan - you wrote this blog yesterday, so I guess today you are starting to feel the stiffness of yesterdays walk, limber up by doing a short walk today, it will help to naturally stretch those overused muscles and make it all feel better. Glad you had a great weekend and I want to compliment you on not obsessing on what you ate - so you must have made good choices! - Debie
