#68 - Failing.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

So far on my vacation, food has been the enemy. For some reason, I can't stop eating. I did great yesterday up until Charlotte. The plane was delayed due to a storm, so all the way to Phoenix, my boyfriend and I were stressing about dinner options and making our next flight. Luckily, we made the flight, but we had to get dinner on the plane. I made a good choice (I assume), a cobb salad with a fourth of a cup of apple juice. I also filled up my water bottle every chance I got. However, the stress of the plane killed me. I downed an entire box of Starbursts on the last flight.

This morning, we decided to go get breakfast, and I got chicken tenders, fries, and orange juice. For lunch, I ate a cheeseburger on wheat bread with lemonade to drink. I have barely gotten in a cup of water, and it's already 2pm! I'm bloated. I'm exhausted. I'm feeling defeated. I don't want to do my Body Rock. With no structure, I don't feel like myself. I'm treating this vacation like it's a vacation from my healthier lifestyle.

The only positives from this vacation so far:
- I've slept well.
- We took a campus tour of the university where my dad works (lots of walking).
- I made myself open a bottle of water.

I know this is vacation, and I should just relax, but I've worked so hard to get this far, and I am angry at myself for allowing it to go out the window. Sorry for the crappy blog. I just needed to talk. emoticon

    Don't get too stress out during your vacation, especially when you think you had too many slips, not taking care of yourself like what you normally do. What I can suggest about this, make a basic guide on what you can do so that there will be no major slip-up or no building big mountains from small slip-ups. Try things like sneak in water to get at least 2 litres daily, choose to walk more (if it's possible or make the walking trips as long as possible), do Quickies from BodyRock workouts (for example, if BR has 4 exercises of 10 reps, split them into several sessions throughout the day).

    Have fun on your vacation!

    I agree with all the "RELAX!" comments you've already received on this. I know it's easier said than done, but make good choices when you can and forgive yourself when you can't or don't. I know it's harder to get moving when you're in a funk, but going for a walk to clear your mind not only gets a walk in, but it helps snap you out of the funk. Even if it's just a 10 minute stroll around the neighborhood, just do it!

    I think you are expecting too much of yourself....relax. You are on vacation. You still made good choices, you indulged some but that is life. Have fun!

    You are on vacation so do not stress about everything or you will not have a good time and it will back fire anyway. You will do great.

    Relax, enjoy yourself and make the best choices you can. It's so hard to 100% on track when we're at home and in our usual routine let alone on vacation facing unknowns! Hang in there! You'll be 100% back on track after your vacation and any water weight you may gain due to excess sodium will be gone quickly.

    Enjoy your vacation!
