Vacation > weight loss :/

Ahhhh the best laid plans 

Then off to an amazing coffee shopin Astoria, Oregon and of course I had to get the better than granola bar 

Sooo yummo!!

Chicken, avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, gluten-free crackers 

And we stopped at a farm in Portland and had a few candies they forgot to take a picture

The hostess ate the Gap diet so the  candies were spun honey with peppermint surrounded by Coco but had no sugar in them so I guess there werent so bad

I feel like a too much but looking at the pictures it doesn't look like I did :-}

I have to be forgetting something but I don't know what it is.... More reasons why tracking on my phone or on paper is a good idea

Later folks

Egg white omelette with veggies and cheese ... I didn't eat the toast or fruit... The fruit did not look good 

Airport snack... Again no luck with the apple... What is it with this danged ole fruit!!!?? but the banana was good and I counted out 18 almonds 

I got some kind of apple cider/coconut milk hot apple cider it was delicious!' The green juice was my sisters .... I am so not into green juice. I am out of the habit of taking pictures but I have the mighty bowl .... I did not eat all the beans it was way too much

Beautiful Oregon ...

And dinner had hamburger and salad and some gluten-free bread 

And finished up the day with a weight watcher chocolate giant fudge bar @ 110 calories I did not tracking in my food other than what I did right here have no idea what my calorie count was!!! But I feel pretty good about what I ate

Blog name and check in

I have made it pretty clear that I have been struggling, I started my downhill slide in October then my daughter moved out in December and I have been going down steadily

My latest struggle has been my beloved Quest bars... They are thee best bars out there ... As long as you don't eat 6 in one day!!! 

So I am starting vacation this morning ... Off to visit family and as of right now I have no Quest bars in my possession 

I am going back on food ... What a friggin thought ... I must be like smart 

------> realization moment ... You Karla are not thee brightest bulb in the pack 

But I am in control and I can change my path any moment and however much I choose so .... I choose 

Back to Daily Thoughts .... Not monthly thoughts and real food and my long term goal will be to get rid if these 15 extra pounds 

Short term goal will be to. Eat. Real. Food. 

Not live off bars .... Oops that was a confession or sorts 

So I will be blowing up my blog on a nightly basis and in it's usual disjointed manner 

Feels good to be back 
See ya tonight .... Less of me is the goal 

I weighed this morning 153.8 and I will weigh when I get home from vacation 

But this is a sister vacation and she is uber supportive of weight loss so I am anticipating a weight losing vaca 

Tootled till tonight
