That is the question. Why am I freaking out about going on vacation? Yes, you guessed it, because I'm afraid of losing control. I'm afraid that I will blow everything I have worked so hard to gain or should I say LOST! I've been going over and over in my head on what will I do when I get to my destination and start trying to unwind and enjoy myself. I know I shouldn't worry about it and enjoy the time but it does concern me because I don't want to go back to the unhealthy me.
I've already decided I'm taking my resistance bands with me and my trusty computer so I can still track my food intake and fitness on Sparkpeople. As well as, stay connected to those of you that are and have worked so hard to get and remain healthy. I know that will be a BIG PLUS to helping me enjoy vacation with out remorse. I just need to stay focused and arm myself with the words "No Thank You" when folks want to indulge in those sinful foods. I'm starting to think about what I will eat in place of what others around me will definitely be eating. I know there are healthy options I just need to be strong and know that I will feel much better about myself if I remain strong.
I guess my main reason for posting this type of blog is to let Sparkpeople know that I will overcome the pitfalls and traps of a vacation and will be proud to announce that I didn't gain an ounce when on vacation. Wish me luck!
