I spent the past week in Vegas on a writing retreat with my friend Elena. It was awesome! I wrote the most number of words I've ever written in a week! By far!

The other awesome part was that Elena is a great cook, and I ate really well at every meal. That is not how I'm used to eating on a writing retreat! I usually eat yogurt and PB&J sandwiches, whatever it takes to have the most time for writing. 😉  Elena made a ziti casserole and chicken picatta and all kinds of delicious foods. Yum!

When I came home on Sunday, it was to the family March birthday party (including mine! 🙂 ) and a lot of planned overeating. LOL!

So…yup, I gained a pound over the last week. But considering what would've happened if I hadn't been trying, I'm perfectly fine with it. Haha! And I did do quite a bit of my usual exercise – I've got the aching abs to prove it – so I didn't fall off the wagon completely.

With my birthday and Easter coming up, I may or may not lose any weight this week either. But I'm still going to count calories, exercise, and work to not overeat much.

I hope you all have a fabulous week! Happy Easter to you!
