Vacation challenges and food pushers.

Friday, July 26, 2013

Hi everyone, I am on a two week vacation from work, and for the first week I am back home at my dads house. Which is so great! Except the house is full of so many temptations, my family has ice cream, cookies, a candy jar, chocolate, chips, and they cook deep fried foods for dinner. Tonight I made a big salad and ate that with just a just 6 or so deep fried scallops and about 20 fries.. that still worked out to be about 600 calories. Then after that I had a sugar craving and ate a fun sized Oh Henry bar, followed by a binge of 3 cookies, and some more chocolate. I also had a large breakfast at a diner this morning with a friend.
I will continue to try to eat as healthy as possible this week, because I feel so heavy, and sluggish and negative when I eat this way. I also have a wedding to go to when I get home in a week.
Tomorrow I plan to go to the farmers market to pick up some veggies and fruit. I plan to eat those with each meal and opt for healthy alternatives. This is a bit of a test for me in deciding when the calories are worth it and when they are not. Often I only eat junk food because others around me are eating it. I will eat some treats while I am home but in sensible portions.
I also brought all my fitness things I need; sneakers, mat, exercise clothes etc.
As I am writing this my dad continues to offer me ice cream bars, although I have mentioned healthy eating many times in the last few hours since I arrived.. sigh. It feels like he doesnt support me in healthy eating.
It is up to me to take control of my eating, I cannot blame food pushers for my weight.
Anyone have tips on staying well on vacations and dealing with food pushers? It can be so hard not to feel deprived when everyone else is indulging and pushing it on you as well.
