This past weekend was worse than last. I am getting back on track, thankfully, but this little detour has gotten me really worried about my vacation in March. I had a goal to reach and it seems I will make it - maybe even go beyond it (if I can keep my slips in check) - but I'm worried how bad it will be when I return.
A few things that worry me ...
1) I've already decided I am going to visit my favorite restaurants on vacation, just not eat as I would have before. In theory this sounds good but can I really do it?
2) I'm at the same weight/same timeframe that I stopped sparking before because it was "easier" to go back to old habits. I do not want to but after a week away and not on a routine will I REALLY come back to my same enthusiastic routine?
3) I plan on getting up in the mornings and walking and our trip has more hiking than usual planned ... but will it be enough? I currently get up at 4am and work out before work then walk around the facility at work throughout the day. Plus I will be eating more calories (I know me!) so will I be able to keep up?
4) I have planned to come back a pound or two heavier than when I left and I'm okay with it but if I've miscalculated I really do not want to come back to despair and just give up!
I need some ideas to make my vacation less stressful, more active and still fun. I want to feel like I'm a PART of the fun, not watching it, mostly during meals and events that revolve around food (dinner shows, theme parks, etc). We plan to do hiking already but DH has mytonic muscular dystrophy so we can't do a lot of walking/hiking indoors or out. One of our favorite things is the hot tub but we can't spend the whole week in there! ;)
