This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to meet with the team of folks that participated in the EA SPORTS Active 6 week challenge. We had a wonderful time and I indulged. Yup, I believe in everything in moderation and I ate and drank and enjoyed! I was a celebration after all. I watched my portion sizes and also exercised. The morning before I left I completed my Challenge workout and the following day I walked on the treadmill for an hour. On Saturday the entire team hiked Runyon Canyon Park. The 4.5 mile hike was challenging and the views were stunning. I am now a big fan of hiking and once the weather breaks I will be outside and walking challenging trails!

Despite my indulgences, I am happy to report that I did not gain any weight. I maintained my weight loss and I am ecstatic about that. It just goes to show that you can enjoy food and good drink without causing yourself harm. When I traveled I took Jenny Craig tuna salad lunches for my flights and that helped tremendously. I did not have to worry about making healthy food choices from limited options in flight or in the airport because I took my food with me. That was extremely convenient!
This week, I am focusing on continuing to exercise and eating healthy. I don't have anything special planned but this past weekend proved to me that I am able to make great choices, know my portion sizes and can enjoy life without feeling like I am denying myself. And, I will get right back on my plan and hopefully next week I will have some weight loss to report.
Here is my vlog for this week, take a listen - I talk about a wonderful beverage I imbibed in Beverly Hills.
