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:

ah yes! Nutrition, we have talked about that. We have already made a pact to be very strict with food. I am going to allow myself 2 moderate indulgences.

Today is my birthday and I hit -30 pounds! I'm really not interested in putting ANY weight back on. I'll be psyched to loose weight on vacation. That would make me so proud!

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.

Hi!

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.
