Well, I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I've been busy, busy, busy! December seems to get crazy from the very beginning with all the family stuff and shopping and planning . . .
Anyway, once it got closer to the holidays the BF and I drove to California for Christmas vacation. We spent a few days with part of his family, hit Universal Studios for a day, then spent a few days with my mom's family.
I was a bit worried, food-wise. I know it takes planning and such to eat healthy while away from home, whether you're eating in restaurants or in someone else's house, but I didn't do a lot of planning this time around. Luckily I was mostly surrounded by Subway catering for the first half of the trip and found healthy choices before we went into the theme park, although I might have overdone the hot chocolate that day.
At least I did a lot of walking!
Oh, and my aunt is a great cook but the meals were pretty balanced and not horribly far off from what I'd eat at home. Still, we had some food on the road that probably wasn't the healthiest of options and I was a little scared to step on the scale once we made it home.
I didn't gain anything. Whew! I didn't lose anything either, but I was expecting that.
And to kick off the New Year celebration, I got . . . sick. It was a bad case of the stomach flu. I'm finally feeling better and see that I've dropped two pounds in the past few days. Which means I *finally* broke my 250 plateau! I'd been so close part of November and all of December. That number is an enormous deal for me, as I've only been under it twice as an adult!
So it's kinda been a rough, crazy month, but the scale is finally kind again and I'm looking forward to getting back into my old routine now that I'm back home, feeling better, and can relax now that the holidays are over. Hope everyone had a great December!

P.S. One of my Christmas gifts was a waterproof case and headphone set for my iPod shuffle! Which means I can listen to music while swimming laps! I can't wait to try it out this week.
