It Begins ...

Monday, November 24, 2008

I leave this afternoon for my Thanksgiving vacation. Two things make this trip distinctly different from any other in the past:

1. I weight less than I ever have before
2. I can no longer eat wheat

Both of these affect my trip. I want to maintain this weight soooooo badly, even with the craziness of a Disney vacation. I intend to exercise every day, with trubulence training strength workouts alternating days with HIIT workouts. I intend to stay active, keep my snacking to a minimum, and eat lots and lots of fruits and veggies. In terms of wheat, that should help me with the weight since I can't fill up on pasta dishes, or bread, or cakes, or pastries. However, I still need to watch the fat and the sugar at the same time. I want to eat less overall. I also need to keep up my fiber or I will feel bad. I'm bringing those Special K fiber/protein add to your water packs to have throughout the day to help me with that. I also need to watch the alcohol intake, a glass of wine with dinner, and maybe some vodka, club soda, and lime at the piano bar/karaoke.

This is going to be fun and healthy, really, I mean it, I do. I CAN DO THIS!

It starts in just a couple of hours. At least I won't be able to eat much airport food (they probably have no idea what gluten is and whether it is in the food) so I'll bring my own, that is a good start!
