While I´m away
Tuesday, April 08, 2008
So, it´s been 3 weeks since I left for my vacations, I´m half way through them right now. I must say, it´s been tougher than I thought.
I did pretty good in the 1st week, stayed way in my calorie range and made healthy choices, but of course, it´s vacations AND I´m back home and tasting all those fave foods I can´t get in PR, so for the past 2 weeks I´ve been overdoing it, and I know it´s by far although after the first week and being busy and not in a place with an internet conection I stopped writing down everything I eat so I can just guess that I´ve been going above 2k calories a day, I know it.
I do know I might have lots a little weight in that first week and today I felt bad for throwing my hard work out of the window so tomorrow I´m writing everything down again and tracking calories and staying away from those "back home" faves that are fattening, and sticking to the fruits and veggies and healthy stuff I can´t get in PR.
I must say that my overindulgence has been with wholesome, natural foods, such as cereals, fish, poltry and wild meats, rich salads and fruits, fresh cheeses, etc ... but I´ve had the occasional pizza, chocolate and fried stuff as well.
So by going back to that first good week (where I did enjoy the nice stuff but without exagerating) I expect to come back home and get on that scale to see at least 1 little pound less, and even it´s 1 lb in a month, it´s still a success, as it´s a lost pound while on vacation.
