While Iīm away
Tuesday, April 08, 2008
So, itīs been 3 weeks since I left for my vacations, Iīm half way through them right now. I must say, itīs 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, itīs vacations AND Iīm back home and tasting all those fave foods I canīt get in PR, so for the past 2 weeks Iīve been overdoing it, and I know itīs 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 Iīve 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 Iīm 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 canīt 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 Iīve 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 itīs 1 lb in a month, itīs still a success, as itīs a lost pound while on vacation.
