Just 5 pounds to go....then what?

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I have less than 2 weeks to get down to my goal weight before going on vacation, but then I realized.....then what? Will I miraculously stay at my goal weight during my entire vacation? No, it just means that I reached my goal the day I left but what's the scale going to read when I come home? I can blame the heat and humidity for my clothes not fitting right, but I know that it's living the vacation lifestyle that's going to sneak the pounds right back on. The best I can do is to stay as active as possible and make the best choices when it comes to food and beverages. Wish me luck!

    You can try to add a few things to the vacation lifestyle that mesh with a healthy lifestyle.

One is more activity - rather than just lounging by a pool, get in the water and swim; rather than riding around in a rented car, rent a bike and pedal your way to less accessible sights; and so on.

Another is portion control. It only takes a few bites to savor and appreciate a food or drink. Nothing has to be emptied, no plate has to be cleaned. Better to take two bites and really remember how good it was than to wolf it down and only remember that you had it.

Another is minimizing any alcohol. Let the freedom and the fun and the sun and the locale give you a "buzz". Who wants to spend their mornings on vacation feeling bleh and miserable - from alcohol or from the excess eating while inhibitions are lowered?
