Starting a competition diet and going on vacation the same week is not the best idea. Humph. We spent the week in Palm Springs with my grandparents. We ate out every meal and I did my best to stick to my plan even if it meant wringing napkins under the table a few times. I took two free meals. Chips and salsa are evil. So are fries and ranch. Aside from those meals I did pretty good. Of course, I wasn’t the iron-willed-queen-of-self-control that I had visualized myself but I could have been worse. Much worse.
I did do my workouts. After lifting weights with the spiders in my garage the hotel “gym” felt like I was working out at the Sky Sport Spa even though it was really just an over-sized closet with some free weights and treadmills. And they were good workouts with I’m going to “complain-50-times-a-day-so-everyone-remembers-I-workout” soreness.
This was the first time I went on vacation and didn’t mentally check out for the week and eat a year’s worth of fun food. Instead it was just a day or two’s worth, almost a stay-cation food wise. I think going on vacation and sticking to a moderately healthy eating plan is not only possible but even enjoyable.
Hugs and High Fives,
