All good things must come to an end...

which means, I'M HOME!

Vacation was WONDERFUL!!!  7 days of sun and sand...  quality time with my mom and my Best Girl... meeting an "online friend" and finding out that she really IS an amazing woman, and that we've created a lifelong friendship...  I mean, really what more could you ask for??

It's always nice to get away and just let loose.   But, that always comes back to bite me in the ass.  I spend too much money, eat too much naughty yet delicious food, and of course drink and smoke way too much.  And yes friends, I did all of the above.

I did make it to the gym after a week of slacking off at home before we left.  I went to the gym on the resort on Saturday and Sunday mornings.   And that was it.   The rest of the week was full of booze and sunnin.  I met lots of interesting people.. some really awesome friends from Tennessee, and a not so cool Swinger's couple that gave "creepy" a new meaning.

We went out for a night on the town and found out that people in Cape Canaveral Florida (where Cocoa Beach is located) have nicknamed it "Crack Canaveral".   I found this out while eyeballing the toothless women from across the bar... it was quite the experience. 

I did step on the scale when I got home to see the damage I've done...  Today is May 20, and I last weighed on May 1, which was 217.   3 weeks have gone by and I'm up to 219.... sooo  in those 3 weeks, I'm up 2 lbs... plus anything else that I may have lost from May 1 to May 13, which is no more than 4 lbs.   So, if I'm up 5-6 lbs from this week, Im okay with it.  It was a damn good time and well worth it.

My vacay revised...

The drinks were cold and the sun was HOT
Bud Light Lime and Lay's Stax are PERFECTLY acceptable for breakfast everyday...

"summer teeth" and "7-11 feet" run wild in "Crack Canaveral"
"no thongs allowed at the pool" even if you ARE from Brazil
Scott "the cabby" was totally awesome
Swinger's are on the prowl when the sun goes down, stay out of the hot tub!
The hot tub is super slippery when you've been drinking for 10 hours
Be a Team Player
Tennessee is a pretty cool state"You have pretty teeth"
Love Bugs SUCK!
The water slide will take your top off

SPF 4 works just FINE for me..

 spending quality time with my mama and my Best Girl is TOTALLY awesome

the Rum Punch and Mango Rita's go down much quicker when they're 2 for 1

Here's to meeting "old friends" for the first time...and realizing how awesome they are...

and meeting new friends and feeling the same way

 And since this is a "weight loss/eating healthy/working out basically whatever the hell I want it to be" kinda blog... I"m going to end it with these 2 pics...  
 This is the last time I was at Cocoa Beach... August 2007 and 330 lbs..

I cant believe the difference...  Cocoa Beach almost 4 years later...   May 2011

Pictures are a constant reminder of where I was, and where I am now.   This makes me feel a little less guilty about "letting it all go" this past week...   Who the hell am I kidding..?? I never feel guilty! HA!!  None the less... for those of you who are actively trying to lose weight... PICTURES DONT LIE!!!!!  Just remember that when you get discouraged.  Go back and look at some old ones.

That's all I got for today.  I'm going to attempt to get back into the swing of things tomorrow and hit the gym... we shall see what kinda mood I wake up in.
