Back in December, I made a blog post with some tips in regards to handling social events. Since yours is a vacation, not everything will apply to your situation, but some of the suggestions still might help. I still reread it every so often as a reminder of what works for me. Check it out here: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo ur nal_individual.asp?blog_id=4634210
Good nutrition is what takes and keeps the fat loss progressing, exercise only keeps you healthy and fit. The keys, knowing Southern food ( I cook a lot of Southern dishes) is portion control and eating intelligently in moderation.
It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.
I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.
Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.
Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit
You can not build a six pack using twelve packs
Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

I'm very excited to go see my sister, I have told her that it is very important that I don't gain any weight while I am visiting her out of state. She says she is on board but I am still concerned. She lives in the south so it is going to be HOT. Luckily, she has a swimming pool so I know we will be able to swim laps and be active there. We had been planning canoe trips and bike riding but it's supposed to be in the 100's. I guess we can hike (she lives in a VERY hilly place) in the mornings.
I wonder if any of you have other ideas that might be helpful.
I've lost five pounds in the last 15 days and I want to keep the momentum.
Good health is at the foundation of all happiness.
