We went to our daughter's house, in San Diego, for the weekend. Tuesday to Monday!
I did most of the cooking, which was fun. But I am the only fitness-minded one in the family.
I managed to stay away from the stuffing, but I only got in 2 good runs and one hike in 6 days. Not bad for a holiday week, but next week will be better.

My goal is to have more fitness minutes than SparkPoints!
I strive to be a body in motion, each and every day.

Oh Man!

I was out of town for Thanksgiving - went to my family's in N. California for a little over two weeks - and I got totally out of whack! My eating was OK and I've maintained my weight loss, but I disappeared from SP and from most other communication. Not good.

Guess I'll use this as a learning experience and make sure the same thing doesn't happen over Christmas!

Wish me luck!

I'm going to the San Francisco Bay Area for the holidays - both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'll drive up from Los Angeles both times, and will stay at my parents' house.

My strategies are...

1) To be as active as possible. There's a great park where Huckleberry can be off leash, so I'll be taking him there daily.

2) To ask my parents to hide any chocolate they have in the house. Seriously.

3) Continue tracking what I eat every day.

Good luck everyone!

WE're traveling- 14 hours of driving both ways.

We're packing a cooler with fresh foods and water for the trip. It'll save some money that we can put towards fun shopping and it'll keep us from feeling bloated and nasty. I'm also packing my laptop, fitness bands, and fitness DVDs to do while at my family's home. Regardless of what they have planned for food and activity, I will not be doing until I get the workouts in that I want. I will also be going grocery shopping to keep a lot of fruits and veggies in their house for me to consume. My mom may take issue with this, but it's my stomach and me that has to deal with the ill effects of a diet(intake) that my digestive system doesn't like.

We're driving to Vegas to spend Thanksgiving with the daughters. We're all going out to a restaurant this year - no one has to cook, and no leftovers to pig out on!

BUT - we're getting dessert from The Cheesecake Factory!

I'm just traveling a state away to my parent's in Alabama. I plan on going to the grocery store once I'm there and stocking up on fresh fruits and veggies and other low-fat staples. Oh, and I'll only stop at Subway during the road trip!

My mother was here in August for a visit, and I've been seeing more of the cousins and others than usual over the past few years, so we're taking advantage of nearness to Cape Cod for a pleasure trip. We won't be here next year.

It's half the price of us flying back home. We'll make up for it next year - but I feel a twinge of guilt emoticon (guilty turtle, going to the beach anyway).

I heard about that protest too. I'm SO glad I don't have anywhere to go. I make my family come to me! And thankful that my mom and dad are flying up on the 22nd instead, so hopefully they can avoid the crazy. My parents have a lot of friends in my area and will be social butterflies the few days leading up to Thanksgiving.

Non-weight-related goals:
* Run a mile in 10 minutes (SUCCESS! 9/16/2010)
* Run a mile continuously without walking (SUCCESS! 10/30/2010)
* Run 5k continuously without walking
* Run in a 5k race
* Snowboard for an entire day without needing my rescue inhaler (SUCCESS! 1/29/1011)
* Be comfortable in shorts

I will be traveling with DH to visit his daughter and grandson. She is aware that we are working very hard to lose weight and stay healthy so she won't have anything outrageous. She always makes her dad a huge salad filled with healthy veggies with dressing on the side and she cooks veggies too. It shouldn't be too bad for us.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Good luck with airport security. I heard something about some kind of protest of the new screening of passengers, to be staged Nov. 24th. Imagine, the heaviest travel day of the year!

We don't have to fly this year, but some of the family always have up til now.

Wishing you all safe and happy travels! emoticon

Yes, I will be in London the week of Thanksgiving! emoticon

My basic plan is to be sure and get some daily exercise in, either with lots of walking and/or utilizing the hotel gym/pool. Also, to not indulge in too many fried items and beer!

We have to be at the inlaws Thurs-Sat and then my family for Sat....so that means I will have very little control over what is served. I plan to bring fruit and try to portion control. My daughter (age 10) has offered to share desserts with me! I also plan to go for long walks while at my inlaws...they would rather play with the grandkids anyway

DH and I will be running away to our "camp" in the U.P. No special meal planned. It will be too cold to sleep and cook out, so we'll be staying in a motel nearby and eating at restaurants probably. I plan to "be good", but then I always PLAN to eat sensibly-that doesn't always happen.
Hope everyone enjoys the Holiday, no matter what you are doing.

We're going to Cape Cod. I'm excited! It's been too, too many years since I was there. I'm planning to eat. . . but cutting down from now until then.

Anyone else traveling? Got any strategies?
