Just got back from our Florida vacation. This was something we've been planning for months, were supposed to do in February but with all the snow, our flights were cancelled and we had to postpone the trip until this last week. It was great and I felt great knowing that some of my summer clothes are too big and others that used to be too tight are fitting well. I need to buy a new bathing suit but didn't want to shell out the money for that quite yet so I was wearing my old one and feeling self conscious about how it fit, especially around my chest. I managed to go swimming in the pool and the ocean though and we had a great time.
Now several months into my new eating plan (South Beach), I know what items to look for when we go out to eat, which is pretty much all we did on our trip. It's not like you have a lot of options living out of a hotel room with a small fridge but no microwave. Breakfasts were generally easy, with eggs and turkey sausage fairly easy to find on menus, but I did splurge on some french toast and some grits. It is vacation after all! The trick is that now that I'm home I feel like I need to get back on the straight and narrow. I may have been a little too lax on the vacation, eating some fried seafood and potatoes, not going to the gym, etc. We even shared dessert last night and I find that it's hard for me to just jump right back in. I'm heading to the grocery store now to stock up on healthy food options and want to get back to hard core journalling my food and getting back into the gym. I'll be out of town next weekend and can't let it mess with my head.
