Experiment results!

I'm loving my results, a 2 pound loss!  Usually on vacation I gain at least 3 - 4 pounds.  I really tried to maintain my healthy lifestyle on vacation, just added in treats.  I think the treats totally helped me stick with healthy eating  and exercise the rest of the time.  Do you find that the occasional treats help you maintain a healthy plan?

Added to oatmeal.  Do you love chocolate in your oatmeal?

Breakfast:  chocolate peanut butter oatmeal
We had fun at Topsail Beach, but I'm oh so glad to be home.  Can't wait to get back to the gym today, workin' legs.

Weight lifting makes me feel strong and empowered.  Do you love it?

I saw this quote today on Alexandra's blog. I love it.

Thanks for all of the encouraging comments on last night's post.  It really does mean so much to me along this crazy journey.  Y'all are the best!
Hope everyone has a healthy, happy Monday.

Take care,


  1. That is great Cat!! I hate it when people say you cant eat out or go on vacation on a diet, because you really can!

  2. Kat, so proud of you going on vacation and did not blow your diet. I love oatmeal and pb/chocolate. I have found using chocolate whip cream works too but in Oregon it is not always available.

  3. Well now thats a big ole WOO HOO to you!!!! YOu had a great time & lost weight! IT doesnt get better than that and you enjoyed yourself. Good for you!!!!
    Welcome back!

  4. Congrats! That is really something. I have never lost before on vacation. I have one coming up and hope to copy you!!! Good job!

  5. Great Great job girly. I was eating that oatmeal once and my hubby said it tasted like a reeces pieces. HAHA
    Have a great day :-)

  6. Great job! I love peanut butter in my oatmeal. A little chocolate would be perfect, but then I'd have to let the kids put it in their oatmeal, and they already get the brown sugar - no fair! ;)

  7. That's awesome that you lost weight while on vacation!! I think all that exercise you did there helped out a lot!

  8. I definitely try to stick to healthy eats on vacation!! It makes it so much more enjoyable...
    Love the choco/PB oats... looks delish!!

  9. Thanks for the comment luv, y'all! I went shopping today. Stay tuned for a sexy mall haul post. :)
