A little mention of Weekly Weigh in #8 – and EXCITING NEWS!

Oh my goodness! A friend of mine reminded me that I left you all hangin’ with my good news! (Once again… I’m NOT pregnant. Sorry, mom.) Since the weigh in part of this post is not good news, let’s start with the good news. Remember my post about my 2012 goals? Remember how one of those goals was going to Thailand? Well…

I’m going to Thailand for two weeks in December!

Matt and I have wanted to go to Thailand for a looooong time. When we started dating, I introduced him to the glories of Thai food, and it become a mutual dream that we’d one day traipse through jungles on elephants and bow down at handcrafted Buddhist temples. In December, I’m graduating with my master’s degree, and we’ll be celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It just made sense to book an awesome trip in celebration of accomplishing those two wonderful and joyous goals!

We’ll be leaving on December 21 and coming back two weeks later, which means we’ll be spending Christmas and New Years on the other side of the world. Freakin’ cool, man. Freakin’ cool. It’s been a fantastic thing to look forward to as I trudge through papers and readings and my crazy schedule. Anyways, I gotta lose the weight so I can be healthy and in shape for my trip – I do NOT want to miss out on amazing experiences and sights because of my size or lack of stamina.

Anyways, as for weigh in. I gained .8 of  a pound. I don’t want to get into it, because I’m frustrated and sick of talking about it. I had a small slip up on Sunday with mexican food, and that’s probably what got me into trouble this week. I’m going to try even harder, and put in 100% instead of 95%. I’m re-joining my gym this weekend just so I officially have NO excuses. I can do this!

Here’s a nice little visual for myself as I deal with this constant yo-yoing…

Anyways – tell me – what’s one of your fantasy vacations? Why?

  1. What exciting news, I hope I can make it to Thailand one day! Right now my dream vacation is…Greece! I would love to island hop and visit all the ancient-mythology filled places. I love Greek/Mediterranean food and became obsessed with ancient civilizations in 6th grade.

  2. I’ve wanted to see Machu Picchu since I was about 12 years old. To me, it represents some mystical continuity of humanity (Hella deep. I know.)–I love feeling that connection to people who stood in the same place and stared at the same sky 600 years ago. I also have an affinity for tropical jungles and ancient ruins…I don’t think I’ve traveled anywhere without at least one of them! And I’m somehow sure that you’ll convince me to go to Thailand when you guys get back (I mean jungles and ruins? How could I resist?)

  3. after all that we’re going through, that trip is so well deserved! I meant to ask you tonight, did you see the article I sent you on Facebook? I thought she wrote it beautifully and it has a great message. ps. I’ve always wanted to go to Stonehenge and the Coliseum and of course, I want to see the pyramids!

  4. I gained this week as well. Grrrr…

    I want to go to Italy and Greece with my husband. I would also love to go on another cruise (Alaska, Eastern Caribbean, Mediterranean, etc).

  5. My fantasy vacation would be to some beachy resort – Fiji, Turks & Caicos, or something along those lines. Congrats on getting to go to one of your dream vacations!

    I love that photo/saying, and it SO applies to me and my journey, so I’m totally stealing it for my blog! (I’ll make sure to give you credit). Thanks for sharing it.

  6. What a fun trip you have planned! I haven’t put a stamp in my passport in ages. Might have to follow your lead and book an adventure after I graduate. Ireland, New Zealand and , oddly, Nepal are all high on my list.
