Staying on Track with House Guests
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
My BFF was in town this past weekend (Thurs-Sun). Luckily, she is conscious of her food intake and staying active as well. But, it was a vacation, so we were a bit lenient. I did go over my recommended daily calories each day, but it was not absurd. I was still paying attention and tracking what I was eating... never going over 2,000 calories. I was actually quite below that each day. It helped that I had made some meals for the crock pot ahead of time and froze them so that we were able to have some home cooked meals instead of eating out the whole weekend. Also, most of our site seeing involved walking. We walked outside most of the day Friday and Saturday, and when I logged that time, I was surprised to see how much we actually burned. So, while I was not as stringent as I could have been, I feel like I did a good job not going overboard and allowing myself to enjoy the weekend with my friend. It is all about balance, right??
So, I was back on track food wise Monday, and will be back at Zumba and the gym starting tomorrow (Wednesday). I just hope this weekend doesn't cause a jump on the scale come Thursday morning.
We have family coming down to visit the second half of February. My plan is to stay on track, including workouts, while they are here.
