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. :D

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!

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 !
