Thanks everyone. I think I will do that. I can try to get her to move, but to me, it's not worth the fight with her. Last thing I need is for her to tell me I am ruining her vacation again.

Thanks again!

I think you will find that 1300-1400 calories will work nicely.
Perhaps there are some days you and your mom could take a walk together and get in some physical activity.

It's fine to lower it if you'd like but make sure never to go below 1200 cals.

Yes! Definitely change your calorie burn goal in SparkPeople (there's a small link under your weekly goal on the Start page) to account for reduced/removed exercise. It will adjust your calorie range for how much you should be eating when you aren't exercising.

Hi all, I am way pre-planning, but my mother is coming in for a week in a couple months. To account for teh weekend at the beach, I will be working 4/10 days. While she isn't here, I will probably still hit the gym after work, but while she is here, I feel guilty since I wouldn't get home until late. To get around it, I was just going to skip a week of exercise (and enjoy my mother's company) and just track my food.

My question is whether or not I need to adjust my calorie intake to be lower for that week. I am burning 1600 calories a week which gives me a substantial amount of calories to eat: 1430-1780. Should I lower it to a level with no exercise for the week?
