Got a late call on Tuesday, to do a 2-day consult in NJ, so we headed right back out after getting home from vacation.
Best thing is that I am in a hotel with a great fitness center, a nice breakfast buffet, and working with a client that is on a diet!
So, today I stayed 100% on track, had loads of veggies, including a salad for lunch and dinner. I worked out, and had an all around good day. I've tracked my food, my activity, and earned some points!
1st day of my 100% compliance week. This could be helpful!

Sad to say I have to go home tomorrow...back to my real life.
I think I have done ok, not great, with dietary goals.
I did drink more alcohol than I would have at home, having a cocktail and/or wine each night. that adds up the calories when it is night after night.
Didn't have any junky stuff or sweets though, for the whole trip.
Did very well, working out at least 60 minutes every day.
Didn't weigh myself, but that was easy.
But here is what I'm conserned about...when I get home I do have a scale, and I'm wondering if not weighing is still a good idea.
Sometimes the scale gives concrete feedback, to let me know that I didn't really do as "ok" as I thought I did on my dietary intake. And that is often enough to motivate me to get back to basics and focus on really sticking to my plan.
Maybe I will just do that as a matter of course for one week.
I am going to aim for 100% compliance with my meal plan, activity goals, and Team Goals for the next 7 days, starting on Tuesday, when I get home.
If I can do that, maybe I won't be too worried about how far off track I may have gone.
So that's my plan, and I'm sticking to it.

When I started with SP, my BMI was 33+
25 lbs lost, in 5 months, and I just remeasured and found it to be 29!

I think I did ok today.
I ran my usual 5 miles (even bested my own record! )
I worked in the yard, played with the dog, and cleaned up in the basement. so I was pretty active all day.
I took the advice of a new SparkFriend and "danced my way through my housework"
I ate pretty well for breakfast, lunch and dinner...
But I did have a cocktail before dinner - which I guess is ok, because I am still on target for nutrition.
Tomorrow there is a cocktail party at a friend's. I plan to eat before I go, and take a tray of veggies and cheese to nibble on. That should help.

We decided to head up to our cottage for the long weekend, a few days early.
This is where it gets hard for me.
This is vacation - this is dinner parties, cocktail parties, sleeping late and hanging out.
How am I going to fit that into the lifestyle of "the new me? "
The healthy, active, conscientious, me.
Not weighing is going to be easy - no scale here.
Eating well, most of the time, should be ok...I brought good food and have lots of good recipes. But it will be tough in the evenings, with all the get togethers.
Exercise.... That may be tough too. No treadmill, small cottage, not a lot of room to do workout videos. And the weather will be a big factor, if it's sunny I can run... If it rains ....well, I may have to learn to like running in the rain.
I'm gonna take this one day at a time. Do the best I can with each and every challenge the next 5 days throws my way. I figure if I can get through this weekend well, I can handle whatever the summer brings!
Wish me luck. Hope all my SparkPeeps have a wonderful Holiday weekend!
