Vacation Challenge!

Saturday, March 08, 2008

Yay, off tomorrow on the Great Nerd Tour of Florida! We are so excited, we are going to do astronaut training and see the space shuttle launch!

As always, when we leave our town of 1800, we go shopping! Butterbean suggested Torrid, so I'll definately hit that, plus I have some gift certificates to Nordstrom and Coach!

The challenge will be to eat well and exercise...I just adjusted my calories down as I have officially lost 10.5 pounds. (I know my tracker doesn't say that, but it has a different weight in there for some reason). Now my top calorie limit is 1570, wow that doesn't seem like much!

My plan is to eat fruit with breakfast, and salads with lunch. Skip the fries always. We have so few food choices in our small town that one of the joys of vacations is getting eat ethnic food--mexican/japanese/thai/ basically anything different. We get so excited over shopping and food...it's funny to our more 'civilized' friends and family! But we are in a TINY town....the Walmart just opened yesterday and it's been front page news for the past two years!!

I'll be checking into SP off and on, hopefully logging my food intake. I have always had a 'vacation mentality' that meant I could go off the diet during vacations. Obviously that's been working well for me! So....here's to the lifestyle mentality!!

    Have a wonderful time on your vacation! It's great that you have an eating plan in place. Even if you do end up gaining a little, if you stick with your eating plan you should be able to keep the damage minimal. Have fun!
