Last vacation was to the Enchantment Resort in Sedona, AZ. It was a working vacation since it was our annual women's retreat with our survivors & their female family or friends. Since it revolved around wellness, I managed to stick with my food plan.

I am hoping to go back to Scranton, PA to meet up with one of my Spark friends sometime this summer.

We haven't taken a vacation in awhile mostly because of my health issues. This Fall we're going to Mexico. Hopefully I will do well. If not, that's ok. I will make up for it when I get back.

We just got back from a great vaca in St. Augustin! I ate whatever I wanted because we walked hours each day and it balanced out for the most part. I gained 2 lbs but I retained a lot of fluid due to heat.

Last time I took a vacation was last September. We took a cruise to Alaska, then spent a couple of days in San Francisco. I stayed active on the ship (hit the gym a couple of times, did dancing) and we did a LOT of walking. I made healthy choices and took a bunch of pictures.

This year we're going away to Tennessee for the fall, so I imagine there will be a lot of hiking on our trip!

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

We are on vacation right now!! We are in Indiana, first week was for a conference in Indy and the rest of the time spent riding here on our bikes (the motorized kind!) and staying with family.

We didn't get to go on vacation last year because of my husbands' illness so this year we planned a 3 week vacation and it has been wonderful!!

I've done pretty well with my eating, not perfect but not out of control either. I've also made arrangements to be able to exercise while here. For the nights we've spend at hotels, I made sure to book hotels that have a fitness center so I could keep up with my exercise. And while staying with family I arranged with a local fitness center to have a temporary membership ($20 for 2 weeks!) so that I could go there to work out, as there isn't room at the house to do it. I've also gone to the local high school (right across the street from where we're staying) and walked around the property for 30 minutes.

I went to Frankenmuth, MI last year with a friend for a few days. Since we are both "Sparkers" we tried to keep each other in line! All in all, we didn't do too badly. The high point about the trip was meeting six other sparkers that we had "talked" to on line, but we actually got to spend the evening with them! What fun!!! And with all the talking, we were much to busy to eat!

When was the last time you took a vacation? How did you handle your eating habits while away from home? Will you be going away this year? If so how will you stay on track, will you have a max. calories range for the days gone?
