Vacation Eating Plans

Friday, August 23, 2013

My training plan is set so I need to determine a plan of eating. My goal is to continue to maintain within 5 pounds of my current weight. My strategy is to eat 1/2 portions of the food I am served. I am not going to restrict my eating on my trip. I am going to enjoy the local food but in moderation. I am going to make wise (not perfect) choices and eat normal (not restaurant) portions of food. I will find as many fruits and vegetables (without butter) as possible. I will drink lots of water. I will probably share a few desserts with DH. (Who could resist gelato in Rome or Pizza in Naples for that matter) I will have a few staples in my bag so I have recourse if there just aren't any reasonable choices.

With all the walking and my planned running, I hope to have a sane and enjoyable holiday without a large gain.

    I am so excited for your trip. The only thing I'd add is drink plenty of bottled water. And in Rome, maybe some vino just because!

    You are going to have a FABULOUS time! Your plan for eating seems very reasonable/doable, and you'll get LOTS of walking in!

    oh my gosh are you going to Italy? Where is this 3 week vacation/cruise taking you? It sounds like you have it all down pat. I certainly wouldn't resist those things either.

    You can do and you can still enjoy small portions of everything you want to eat. My beau and I recently went on vacation and I didn't gain any weight. YOU can too, especially with this great plan and your strong resolve!
