Yesterday's goals

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Yesterday goal's were met! Yes, I was determined and surprisely easy for me.

DH drove the whole time with me beside him. I was able to seat in back of mini van for a few hours where I watched DVD with the kids (they were in middle row) while I did scissor crosses with my legs and arms followed by other "chair" exercises. When I got to the hotel in VA, the family and I went to the pool. And I did laps, already lost what I gain from swimming last summer, tread water and frolic with the kids and DH. I was in the pool for over 2 hours. Surprisingly it felt good, in fact it help with the cramp driving sitting position a lot.

Even nutrition went well, I eat two breakfast one at 4am which consisted of half an avocado and some cheese than at 9:30am went to Mc Death's (Mickey D's) and had a fruit n nut oatmeal and finally my coffee with cream. I packed yogurt and breast of chicken on a small whole wheat bun for both DH and me for lunch. I only ate the sandwich. I did have a hand full of dark chocolate covered almonds...yum. Dinner, well, was a challenge. We did not want to drive anywhere so we ate at the resturant walking distanst from hotel. Cracker Barrel. I see it all the time when we go for these long drives. This time we actually did more than look. It was real cute. Country store with a country resturant. This was tough on me but I think I did okay. No I did not track it. I tried ordering veggies but even veggies were up there in calories. I had chicken and dumplings, with a side of fried okra, cole slaw and potato cassorole, it came with bisquits and corn muffins. I ate less than half of the Ch n Dp, almost ate all of everything else but opt to take back to hotel the corn mufffins. I love corn muffins so there was no way I was leaving them. They may well be my mid-day meal today.

Overall I did the better than I did in the past. Did I do my best? Well, under the circumstance maybe. What do you think?

    I always have to drive unless the older boy is with us. It sounds like you did good.

    This is what my father-in-law (God rest his soul) used to say about the Cracker Barrel, "You get a good meal at a good price.' Thanks for the reminder.

    you did awesome!! great choices on food overall. I did the same thing...splurged a bit but didn't go overboard. You are right about the exercise helping with the cramped travel conditions. We walked laps in the airports to offset the amount of time sitting emoticon Way to go on the swimming!! emoticon and you had fun with the fam at the same time. Win win!!

    Enjoy the rest of vacation!!

    You are on vaca and getting in exercise emoticon . I'll try to take your momentum with me when I head out next month. I know when I vacation I focus on getting my fruits, veggies and water in. Everything else is hard to keep track of in different surroundings. Have a blast with family. The rest will work itself out!
