The Cherry Chip Cake Cometh.

I had not one, but TWO pieces of it last night. I'm in Denver for my Dad's birthday, and I tried to do the respectable, small sliver of cake last night. Nope. Had two of 'em.

At least I made my delicious veggie lasagna with my Mom last night. Well, half veggie for my brother and I, and half sausage slab for my Parents. With some garlic infused bread, it was yummo. I'm glad I only had a big salad for lunch yesterday. Did I eat breakfast? Nope.

So! Vacation really does tend to mess with my eating. Oh, and Fat Bridesmaid has complained that she hasn't been at the gym in 3 days. Yeah, I travel so much that it happens to me ALL the time. I seriously stop working out all the time. Then I go back to Zumba-ing and it kicks my ass.

I can say one thing for sure though. I LOVE my parent's scale. It's at LEAST 5 lbs lighter than mine, I think. I haven't weighed myself nekkid in several days. I'll probably end up doing that when I get home.

I also need to do some seriously LIGHT eating toward the end of my vacation. I'm planning on going RAW again, hopefully Saturday through Monday. I'd love to lose another 2-3 lbs by the time I get home, but we'll see if I can do it. I certainly don't think I can fast while on vacation (I don't have that much willpower.) And I also don't know if I can go Diet Coke free again while on vacation.

Why is it that "VACATION" makes everything seem so much harder? I have no idea. It just instantly makes me feel like... LAZY CELEBRATION GIRL.

Oh yeah. I don't understand how my friend Jesse survives on 5 hours of sleep a night. I got 4 or 5 hours last night because I stayed up late reading my Mom's old writings from her 20's (Umm, have I mentioned she's a ridiculously talented, inspiring, amazing writer?), and I got woken up at about 8am by all these contractors coming over to my parent's house to work on the backyard (new back porch, etc.) I'm SO grumpy right now, pouring coffee down my gullet, and I can't imagine going on this little sleep every night. I'm seriously an 8-10-12 hours of sleep kind of girl. I don't know how I'll ever have kids.

How much sleep do YOU get a night? How much do you need? Are you a waking zombie? I feel like one right now.

I need to go have another cup of coffee and some watermelon. :)

I'm definitely a 8-10 hours kinda girl. I'm currently functioning on about 3-4 at the moment and I'm suffering. I'm grumpy, I'm tired, I can't concentrate.

I'm very tempted to leave early and go home to nap! Maybe I'm just getting old?
