ah, vacation woes

Thursday, October 06, 2011

So I'm at my parents' house this week for vacation. At first I didn't think they had wireless internet and I thought I would have to go without sparkpeople. Anyway, my mom has wireless, so I have no excuse now.

I did ok staying on program yesterday, though I was lacking in protein, carbs, and fiber. But I was ok on calories.

Today I went way over my calories. I didn't do an intense workout, but I did go for a walk with my brother and the dogs, so I did some activity.

Tomorrow I plan to do some grocery shopping so I can make some healthy recipes. My mom doesn't have much food in the house, but she does have a ton of fresh vegetable from Dad's garden.

I guess, the point of all this is, vacation is not an excuse to eat any differently. This is not a diet, this is a life change. Vacation is part of life, therefore it must include my new healthy eating habits.

I'm sick of all the excuses. I can eat healthy--at home, at the office, during vacation, on birthdays, during the holidays, when I'm stressed, when I'm tired. All of that is life. All of that fits in my healthy life.

On the other hand, I won't beat myself up for not sticking to my plan exactly. Life is life. Everyday is another chance to start over. I make small improvements that stick long term.

    Nothing like fresh veggies from the garden.
    You stated it so well. No more excuses. We can do this through whatever life throws at us. Eating badly during difficult times only makes us feel worse! Being tired is a tough one. When our energy is running low, it's hard to stay focused.

    Not perfection, but persistence. It's not all or nothing. We just keep doing the things that we know will move us closer to our goals.
