All of a sudden I am having to think about a vacation!! Vacation for me usually means alot of eating out and weight gain!!
Don't get me wrong I am super excited that we are all getting to go a family vacation in less than two weeks. Super excited because we have not been away in over a year and secondly because we can't all fit in our van anymore so it looked like a vacation was out for us this year but it turns out that we are going to rent a Dodge Sprinter and have a holiday after all!
We are going to stay at my father in laws and do day trips from there. Black Creek Pioneer Village, Elmvale Zoo and a day at the local beach/park are on the agenda. Plus the big event will be a family BBQ with my husbands family...some of which I have not seen in a long time. So now that we have planned what, when and where we are going...that was the easy part....I now need to think through the rest of the trip....
What to eat, when I will fit in some real exercise and what my strategy will be to stay on plan(a.k.a the mental game).
Realistically my goal will be to not have a gain on the scale for the week we are away.
I have not thought through everything yet but I must admit I am a little concerned about my time away from the daily routine. If any of you have some suggestions that have helped you through a vacation...I would love to hear from you! I want to walk away from this vacation not only having had a wonderful family time but feeling great about my choices to take my new lifestyle with me WHEREVER I go!
