Default vacations and dealing with them

Sunday the 15th I leave for a week!, after the events of last week God know I need some rest!, I think I will be ok as far as my food intake!, but I will be tempted to go off a bit I am sure!, that being said we have some great outdoor activity planned, I hope to take my yougest daughter kite board surfing, a day trip tp Ocracoke, some offshore fishing as well as surf fishing! and of course prayer !

We are going to the big store and getting fruits and veggies,, I love to stuff yellow red and Orange peppers with grilled Mahi, and a bit of brown rice and some fresh fruit on the side!

but first I have to select what cast iron cookware I will be taking!

All the best Bo

You'll do fine, looks like you have a plan, and having a plan it is easy to keep that goal in mind. Eager to hear how it goes. You are inspirational.

Hi Bo,
Taking a little time for R&R is maybe one of the best diet tools there is . After all, stress all by itself can be a diet buster.

It does, indeed, look like you have a great plan. And if you find you pick up a pound or 2 once you get back, just jump back into your regular diet routine and I bet those pound will fall right off.

Have a great time, enjoy the family, and stay away from the fast food/fried food sooo tempting on vacation.

Bo, it sounds like you'll have a GREAT TIME! Enjoy it all!
You are planning ahead, and for me that is always half the battle. When I spent 2 weeks with family in the National Parks of UTAH, what kept me on track was that we planned ahead where we would eat, and I used online sites to select places that were non fast food/or chains where I could check out menus before we arrived. After eating out like 38 times, I only gained half a pound or a pound.

If you fall off the wagon, dont beat yourself up. Getting away for vacation is about having fun and making memories, its not about what you crammed down your throat!

Default well I am back!

we had a great time . I can say it was the best vacations ever, now on Sunday Morn, I hit the scale at 337, (gain of 9 since my lowest) sat night we got pizza for carry out and it always makes me carry water. Monday I weighed 334.2, It will most likley take me a week to get back to were I was, looking back I should have taken the scale with me, we had room ! and should have brought more food with me that I was use to eating!, we ate a big breakfast almost everyday. when I usually eat a kaski bar, overall I am not bummed , just wish I had stayed the course a little better!, today Its after lunch here and I ate dry kashi cerial with fresh strawberries, had the normal chicken mango salad I get from WAWA!, ( local nice convienace store) a bananna and a green aple I will eat on the way home from work, ! I haven't figured out dinner yet but I won't slip,, thank you all for your great support! I need it !
