After The Vacation

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Well I am home from vacation. Sad to have left such a beautiful, stress-free place and glad to be home with my little fur faces and back to watching my weight. I did not do too bad on this vacation, only gained a few pounds, probably because I was so active walking, swimming, etc.

Can you imagine if you were on vacation all the time? Wow, what a change that would be from one's normal lifestyle eating all that rich fantastic food prepared for you loaded with all of those fats and calories. Drinking those sweet concoctions laying by the pool all day long. Sitting at the slot machines, yet drinking again. WOW, talk about some weight gain. I think it would be virtually impossible to lose weight living a life like that.

So, even though it is sad being off vacation, home is where the heart is and I am glad to be home, that is until next vacation, which we are thinking about already (cruise to Alaska, New York is a possibility).Who knows where we will go, but for right now we are staying put, I am going to get this weight off and hopefully be at goal weight before the next vacation. I am determined to once and for all get this weight off and keep it off.

    Learning to eat healthy and maintain a healthy weight is for every day, not just non-vacation days.

    I've never been to the Bahamas -- my go to island vacation has been Hawaii since I'm a west coaster. It looks beautiful.

    Ideas: Try an active vacation and you don't have to feel guilty about eating -- like Backroads biking or walking tours -- or just make sure you do some sustained exercise each day. Or don't think of vacation time as a time to eat everything you want -- or maybe only at one meal per day or something. It's easy to eat a healthy breakfast in your hotel room -- bring Kashi Go Lean, some skim milk, some fruit, some nonfat plain yogurt... and then for lunch eat a salad with lean protein or something, and then splurge at dinner. Or whatever! LOL.

    How true. It is lovely to go away and let your hair down and relax - but at the end of the day home is where the heart is and it is always nice to go back home emoticon
    Happy to hear you enjoyed your vacation.
