Lost 4 Pounds in Vegas



Every year I feel like I go to Vegas and turn into a chicken with its
head cut off...but not this year. I owned Vegas instead of letting it
own me. Every night there is party after party and everyone is pulling
and jockying to get me to do this or that and so there is a tremendous
amount of pressure but I've gotten a lot better at saying no...even if
there is no explanation or reason.

Also because we had these great suites with full kitchens we were able
to eat healthy. My sweet friends Annemarie and Shyla picked up food
and I am so craving one of Annemarie's incredible sandwiches right
now. :) yummm. This is such a better way to do it rather than eating out every meal which is super expensive and I usually feel like crap afterwards.

Anyway. I feel good. I need to do better about lifting weights though b/c I'll pick up some weight pretty quick if I do that. I think I should be at 175 but I'm glad I trimmed down a bit and now I'll build it back up with muscle.

Congrats on the healthy Vegas week! I had a blast at WPPI but definitely had a junk food week! I just wanted to drop a quick note to say how much I enjoyed your platform presentation with Ron Dawson. I've been a blog reader and fan for awhile but haven't ever commented. Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and so many! You are an inspiration!

You're losing fat and I'm gaining it... woe is me :P

Annemarie said...

You're too sweet, DJ. Making sandwiches for everyone might have been my highlight of the week! :) Hopefully we can hang out next week in SB, maybe lunch at Brett's. :)

I think there IS a reason for you saying no to doing some things-- even if it's not a complicated reason-- wouldn't it simply be because you don't want to overbook or overstress yourself?

And yeah, it's always spendy eating in Vegas, and always calorie filled. Good for you for eating healthy. It's easy to gain lbs. in just a week there.

That's great! I always think guys don't worry about their figures the way we gals do. You look great, David, what's ten pounds either way anyway!
