Life is all about balance
Saturday, July 07, 2012
I have just returned from 18 days of travel. Travel has always been challenging when it comes to healthy eating and getting a proper amount of exercise.
Since starting my most recent weight loss journey I have traveled quite a bit. This has been good and bad. The good news is I have learned to BALANCE having fun on my trips AND still eating in a way that does not totally sabotaging my ability to keep my weight under control.
The bad news is I still have a few pounds to reach my ideal weight GOAL!
With my new learned skills, instead of returning home defeated, because I gained back a few pounds; I will take control and drop the added pounds and take a few more off before the next distraction.
My travels took me to the beach in San Diego, sightseeing in Chicago and a Wedding in South Bend, Indiana. During the trip I enjoyed wine and beer, M and M's while watching fireworks with my granddaughter, and all of the goodies at the wedding. But I made sure and drank plenty of water, walked stairs and cutback my food intake on days where food was not a part of the fun. All in all I did a pretty decent job of balancing my foods. I did gain a few pounds, but have confidence that I will get those back off in the next couple of weeks and will get the remaining weight off some time soon, hopefully before I get inspired to take another trip!
