I agree with you 100%. When we set up strategies beforehand, we have a blueprint in our mind, and we know pretty much what we want to do. And if we do a brief visualization, it becomes even more natural. But vacations are also vacations! You did really well--good work!

I did not have a plan for this weekend, and I didn't do a visualization--even though I had house guests, a big food-fest 4th of July party, and a wedding reception, as well as a car trip! BAD idea to have NO plan!!

I did not do 'horribly', but I didn't do what I could have easily done with a plan. I believe I will have gained some tomorrow, which I'll just have to lose again, and I don't like to do the yo-yo thing.

We're getting ready to go back to Seattle for another wedding week, and I intend to both vacation, and eat more healthily and with some restraint. But the vacation is almost easier than day after day of "special" celebrations!

I'm glad we have several months before the Thanksgiving-to-Christmas party season! I want to get good at stratigizing before then!!

Thanks Deb.
Well, I did ok- snacks and water in the car really helped. Estimating caloric content of meals was pretty tough. I did really well with walking and running - my husband and I walked just about everywhere - but didn't get in any yoga or many strength exercises. For some reason I could get myself up to run in the morning but not do sit-ups or push-ups. I was half a pound up yesterday after we got home but managed to lose a full pound overnight with a net loss for the week of .5 lbs - I ran in the morning, swam with my son at the lake, and got back on the strength exercise wagon.

The big 3rd of July cookout was pretty easy to deal with and I gave myself a comfort zone calorie-wise for the day- there was tons of fruit and it was on the same table as the potato chips!

In some ways, I do think that vacations should be vacations. Down time's important to achieve balance. I'm not beating myself up for not reaching all of my goals. But setting them WAS important because it gave me a bit of a framework to establish control.

That sounds like a great plan, Nancie. Let us know how it goes, ok?

I'm not sure how I am doing on this first leg of our vacation weeks--I can't track, so I'm just 'eye-balling' the calories, and you know how inaccurate THAT can be!!

I've done really well with walking, but NO strength training--I managed to "forget" to purchase resistance bands every time I went to Wal-Mart, and that must have taken work for my sub-conscious mind!!

Home tomorrow, back to normalcy, and I'll assess the damage. And recover, I'm sure--but I really want to learn to live in moderation and balance, not in glut and diet mode!! I'll let you know how the weigh-in goes.

And when we come back for 'summer weddings, round two', I'm bringing my water bottle!!

Hi all-
We're leaving for our 9 hour road trip tomorrow - today I'll be packing to go. We'll be at my parents house for 5 or 6 days. Here's my survival plan:

For the drive:
-Bring plenty of water
-Bring a cooler with healthy low calorie snacky stuff that could also be used for lunch. We won't be able to stop at our friends' house on the way like we've done in the past.
-Plan a good comfort margin into the day's meal plan. Who knows what the 'rents are planning for dinner.

For the stay-
-Bring running stuff and yoga stuff and iPod loaded with C25k and yoga podcasts
-Check out the fridge and then go grocery shopping
-Limit myself to 1 glass of wine per night and plan accordingly

Deb ~I think you're on the right track. You have to know your own weaknesses and limitations. I was at a grad party over the weekend. I ate healthy before we left, and since dh never eats at these things we never even walked past the food table - we stood by the bar instead! Don't worry, I was good. We each had 1 diet pepsi...

Let's hope everyone can continue making good choices!

I have two big challenges coming up--one tomorrow, and one next week. DANGEROUS!!

Tomorrow is a family reunion. You know how we all bring our best stuff--and the meal is the main event.

Let's see--sneak attack exercise...I will bring my walking shoes, and sneak out for a 30 min walk while the families are chatting.

Plan for eating healthy...I'll go through first with a small plate, and just do salad--if there IS any!! Probably someone grew tomatoes, so I know those should be there. Then I'll go back through and do the fun things--one spoonful each of ...not too many, and still with a small plate.

My biggest danger is the desserts. It's no good to say "just this once". THat's how I got to the place I needed to lose--and I've been special places with special treats every night since Wednesday of this week!!

Any one who has any dessert-avoidance ideas, they would be greatly appreciated. I guess just a really small plate, and tiny portions!!

Wow--you guys did great! And how wonderful that your husband got into the game, Blueberryhill!! I'm delighted to find someone else who had never mowed a lawn--though now you have!! Congratulations!

And Littleaok--wise to just say no instead of feeling like we have to do everything with everyone--that's a hard one.

I did a run/walk early yesterday, and I'm running so many more intervals, and more easily. The lunch was really healthy--my dad was delighted, and a great time was had by all.

I really felt good about my choices, including both cherry pie--which I have to say really WAS the best every!--and lots of fruit and vegs. Some indulgent choices allow me to feel normal and live freely--and healthy choices allow me to stay at goal and live longer and better!

Good work to all of us--and to the ones who e-mailed me, too!

Happy Father's Day!!! Usually we cook a BIG breakfast for my husband on Father's Day...this year HE cooked breakfast ... and he made it HEALTHY! emoticon Had my egg beaters and turkey bacon for me. Made smaller pancakes so that i could have two which i couldn't eat them all! Afterwards we played tickle monster with my 3 year old so I was able to put in at least 15 minutes of "running". Since it was all about HIM today, I volunteered to mow our lawn. emoticon First time I ever mowed a lawn...that was HARD and I was drenched 45 minutes later. Because I was so tired and sweaty I drunk 20 oz of water in less than 1 minute. I logged in and saw the calories I burned and I think I'll add mowing into my workout plan. emoticon Later we're grillng steaks, turkey mignon (filet mignon but with turkey), veggies and add green beans for dinner and take a walk afterwards. Dessert? Cake for family and Weight Watchers Mint Chocolate Chip sundae for me!

It helps that my family is involved with my goal!

Great Planning!

I too am having a steak this weekend. This morning after a great power walk I came home and entered dinner first. Now I know how much I can do today-- and I will keep it small and often so I am not starved when I hit the steak later tonight.

I did decline the father's day invitation for a huge brunch tomorow - not so much for the food (although I admit I did think about it) but because of driving distance.

Tomorrow, after the steak dinner, I have already planned a 20 mile bike ride with my boyfriend (real bike rider) and he's going to teach me the rules of the real road, as opposed to my bike path that I am now familiar with. Twenty miles should do a good job on the calorie burn, don't you think? I'm looking forward to it.

So, I think my summer survival strategies are really focusing on planning exercise outdoors and looking ahed for the day on the food choices.

Best of luck tomorrow -- Say Hi to your Dad for me. :o))

Tomorrow is Father's Day--we'll be grilling luscious steaks (high calorie!) and I'm making a cherry pie--which has to have ice cream accompaniment, of course!

So what are my strategies for survival?
I'm walking early in the morning, while it's still cool, and then again tomorrow evening.
I am having the cookout here, so the appetizers will be veggies and fruits; bread will be whole grain; my dad doesn't like sweet potatoes so I'll probably just pass on the potatoes!
Secret tricks: I will do 1 minute visualization of myself making healthy choices throughout the meal. I'll use special celebration plates--that are smaller than normal! And the pie goes home with my Dad!!

Happy Father's Day!!

Very smart to prepare and find out what you're up against, before you choose! Eating out wisely is one of the biggest challenges.

I know that we're going to be eating fast food when I come to the US, so I have been looking at the menus and the nutrition for different fast food places online. Then I have chosen about three meals on each place that is low in fat and calories. I am shocked that some of the stuff I have eaten before is 600+ calories and almost my daily serving in fat!

Good job on the concept that the people are what you came to see and be with -- not the food. I will remember that.

Volleyball - all weekend, snacking out of the cooler and off the team table was not bad at all. I was actually very disciplined. Walking by the grill wasn't fun but I knew where I was on the calories and that I really wanted a nice dinner so it wasn't worth it. Drank lots of water which was good. Overall -- a no gain :o))

It's been too cool and very windy lately so I haven't been able to get out in the eve and enjoy some extra exercise. Maybe later in the week.

Enjoy your week filled with success. Allyson

How did you do, Allyson? HOpe the strategies helped!

I had another out-of-the-blue party tonight--though I did know aobut it, just didnlt know I would be able to go. I had lots of salad, one (!) tablespoon of the two kinds of pasta, a glass of wine and ONE piece of cake. it's cake that does me in--though it was not may favorite, so that helped!! The event was so fast I didn't have much time, but I did drink water, and I did use a clever trick of deciding I as more interested in the poeple than the food! And taht was good!

Hope you win--and your team too!! See you tomorrow!

Beachdreams-- I completely understand that challenge. Right now I am on a NO Margarita stand and will only drink my wine. But its not always easy. Since I am new to this counting process, I am very aware and watching myself carefully.

My personal challenge this weekend is sitting for two days at a teenage girl volleyball tournament...cookies, chips, hot dogs...so I have just laid out my snacks and hope to stay with it. Looks so boring tho! An apple sitting next to a little bag of Oreos. :o)

I hope to get in a lot of walking in a new town during breaks in play. I already turned down a nice early morning ride on my new bike with my boyfriend so I have to make up the exercise.

I'll report tomorrow. Best of luck to everyone this weekend.

I had a late-night sudden challenge--and I did not think to devise a quick survival strategy! We were settling in for the night, when some friends called and asked us to meet them downtown for drinks and talk. We went--and I had a dang sweet martini that put me over my limit. (It smelled good and was cheaper than my usual glass of lower calorie wine. Memo to self--would you pay 3 dollars to sty under your limit?? Then choose the more expensive, lower calorie one, and enjoy it!)

That's what happens when I'm not prepared!

I was not over by much, though, and I did learn from the experience how to better recognize the challenge situations!!

There's always a moment to prepare for the challenge, even if it's sudden. I can learn to plan on the way, in the car. I just didn't recognize it as a challenge till I was past it--so I guess in the end it will help!!

Here comes the weekend! I love the fun of doing different things, having friends over, going out!

This is also a time for planning and using Summer Survival Strategies!

I don't know yet what I'll be dealing with--but I will for sure develop a plan to deal with it!! I'm almost back down to where I was before the holiday last weekend, and I sure don't want to 'take off' upward again!!

Watch for challenging situations, and work up a plan tailored to fit the time and place.

THat sounds ike a great plan, Karoline. And Littleoak--good work! You had a difficult situation to deal with!

I met most but not all my goals today, for my challenging event. I DID do the extra pre-party walk--got in 15 min, not just 10. I got 4 glasses of water down before the meeting/food, but couldn't get in the fifth. I ate just one thing, not two halves, and it was the lowest calorie thing--and I had no cake, which is a major temptation for me!

So all in all--I'd say I met the challenge, and did pretty doggone well!!

The people whose achievements we were honoring were pleased, and a good time was had by all--with lots of laughing about the 'whistle suckers' one person brought! (Incidentally--I whistled, but I didn't suck! Threw it away, actually! THough of course suckers are just not a big temptation for me:)

Great topic Team! I just survived (I think) a weekend of visitors with wine tasting two days in a row and a party on our boat...let's talk challenging at times. Overall, I think I did OK, except for the empty wine calories...but I knew it was coming. I took water bottles with me and was somewhat well behaved.

I also went for a 10 mile bike ride before heading out one morning. That gave me a boost to be good as well.

My party strategy was to provide all healthy food! I had turkey and veggies and mostly good stuff, even the Reduced Ruffle Chips. No dip. Had others bring fruit and salad. It was the homemade chocolate chip cookies that put a dent in the Good.

My next time to 'survive' is my daughter's 8th grade graduation parties and dinner...I trust I can do it!

Everyone have a great summer -- enjoy every minute, be in the now, cause it all goes by so fast.

This is such a great idea. I don't know if I have any big events coming up, but I am going back to the US for two and a half weeks on June 16th. And I am just really afraid that I will start drinking pop again, pig out on fast food and poptarts, can't say I had very healthy nutrition when I was over there last time.

#1: I will just continue drinking my water, and order that when I go out, bring a water bottle wherever I go, and fill up on water instead of calories!

#2: I don't have every single day planned to the fullest, and my host mom has some forest behind her house where I could go for a jog in the morning or something!

#3: Filling up on the vegetables first! My host mom always have a lot of vegetables, so if we're actually eating at home, I am not that worried.

I just hope I can do this and come out on the losing end, it'll be really interesting to see whether I lose, maintain or gain while I am over there.

Sounds like you guys have some challenging situations coming up. I've got a special summer thing already tomorrow! Just a small one--but risk for a calorie blow-out!! A 'double graduation party' for two people at the office. Here's my strategy plan:

#1: Water. I'll have 4 of my eight cups drunk by the celebration at noon, and then drink one more cup before I eat anything!

#2: Exercise sneak attack. I will do at least one 10 min walk during the morning, in addition to my other walks later. I know I can do at least one--with two stair runs included.

#3: Clever trick. I will eat my healthy lunch first, and then have 1/2 portion of two things--any two I want, but only two, and only 1/2 of each. (There's always someone who wants to nibble on the other half!! But it won't be me!)

Tomorrow night we'll see how I did!!

Thanks for this, Deb. We've only got one family trip planned - a 9 hour road trip in July. Based on past experience, I'm planning to bring a cooler with water, baggies containing single portion sdried fruits and nuts, and maybe some power bars. In the past, we've broken up the driving with a mid-way stop at a friend's house at about lunch time. That assures that we're not a slave to rest stop temptations! Maybe I'll be able to sneak in some walking while DH does the mid-trip gas up. So I'm planning ahead early. It'll be a while before I report back. :)

Otherwise, we're sticking pretty close to home. No shortage of mountains to climb or lakes to enjoy here!

Here's the challenge: When you're faced with a special event that may put your healthy habits at risk, use these three Survival Strategies to help you enjoy your event--and enjoy your weigh-in, too!!

Plan your strategies before the event, and let us know your plan before you go. Then, when the event is over, let us know how it went--what worked, what didn't and how much fun you had!!

Strategy #1: Water works! Your plan to keep your water intake up to the top during this event.

Strategy #2: Sneaky exercise! Park at the back of the restaurant; walk the airport; do push-ups off the counter in the ladies room. Plan it, and then sneak it in!!

Strategy #3: A clever trick! Eat a big spinach salad before the party; bring a fresh fruit and veggie tray for the day at the lake, or use a small salad plate for your buffet at the reception. Have one clever trick ready to go before YOU go!

Don't forget to share your plan before you go, and then let us know how it worked out!
