Determination on vacation

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Even though we have left Canada and are on vacation in Texas, I am going to try my best to stay on course. Dinners we are making in our timeshare. I bought lots of beef, a huge bag of mixed, organic frozen veggies, and a large spinach salad that we finished yesterday. Right now I am browning beef, then sautéing onions and mushrooms which I will finish by braising in organic, gluten free, low sodium beef stock.

The time share we are staying at is beautiful. The unit is very large and comfortably furnished, but I didn't get Texan weather right. It is too cold to swim in the pool and there is no fitness room. Yesterday I had hubby drive me to a WalMart on our way back from Fredericksburg, TX and I bought a WATP 30 day Walk Off set that I am really excited about. This morning I did the first 30 minute cardio and it was hard - I think we are at a higher altitude than home.

I will do a WATP every morning that we are at this time share (next week we switch to a different timeshare that has an indoor pool and fitness room). I need to bump up my weight loss whether I am on vacation or not!!!

I am not being perfect - having more wine, trying a beer for lunch. But I refuse to just go wild. I will stay on track!

    Everything sound good Shirley, except it being too cold to get in the pool and no fitness room. But you're enjoying yourself and that's what it's all about!
