Life is all about balance

Saturday, July 07, 2012

I have just returned from 18 days of travel. Travel has always been challenging when it comes to healthy eating and getting a proper amount of exercise.

Since starting my most recent weight loss journey I have traveled quite a bit. This has been good and bad. The good news is I have learned to BALANCE having fun on my trips AND still eating in a way that does not totally sabotaging my ability to keep my weight under control.

The bad news is I still have a few pounds to reach my ideal weight GOAL!

With my new learned skills, instead of returning home defeated, because I gained back a few pounds; I will take control and drop the added pounds and take a few more off before the next distraction.

My travels took me to the beach in San Diego, sightseeing in Chicago and a Wedding in South Bend, Indiana. During the trip I enjoyed wine and beer, M and M's while watching fireworks with my granddaughter, and all of the goodies at the wedding. But I made sure and drank plenty of water, walked stairs and cutback my food intake on days where food was not a part of the fun. All in all I did a pretty decent job of balancing my foods. I did gain a few pounds, but have confidence that I will get those back off in the next couple of weeks and will get the remaining weight off some time soon, hopefully before I get inspired to take another trip!

    Great blog and something we always need to think about. So we had some m&m's? just have something healthier and lower in fat and calories at the next meal. Not that hard! Okay, sometimes it's hard if there are other people wanting to eat but we have to fight for what we want.

    Balance is exactly what it's all about. We can be as strict as we want to be and lose tons of weight, but the fact of the matter is, that's NOT life and that's not the kind of living I have in my sights longterm. So, kudos to you for learning this valuable lesson and KNOWING that you can have your cake and eat it too.... SOMETIMES.
