Vacation Day 2 - in Utah

Monday, June 27, 2016

Well, I'm on my Utah vacation with my family. I'm a little nervous about lack of control over food choices (wrote a blog about my plan a week ago). This morning the only healthy-ish choice in the apartment for breakfast was peanut butter and whole wheat break. Grabbed a quick sandwich and an unsweetened green tea and went for a slow walk in the heat - trying to acclimate to altitude. Went to the store and got several healthy staples for our apartment meals. Family suggested a bbq place for dinner. Sure! ...ummm... Had a smoked chicken breast, baked beans, collard greens and half a hush puppy. Iced tea. Happy with the choice. I was able to eat almost like everyone else and make pretty healthy decisions. I'm keeping my healthy habits quiet. Trying not to talk about it (except here) Going for a solo walk along a river tonight. More activity in a beautiful place. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. :) I'm hoping that good choices breed more good choices.

    Thx for the comments and good luck to Carrie on your vacation soon. "why quiet"... That's a bit of a tough one. I'm thinking it deserves a blog post soon. It has to do with having a more mature attitude than previous attempts. Thanks for your care.

    I went on vacation last week. What makes it easier is that my husband is also wanting to eat healthy as well.

    If you don't mind my asking, why are you keeping quiet about trying to be healthier? Do you feel that you wouldn't receive the same kind of support that you would get here in the Spark Community?

    I'll be right there with you next week! It'll be a pirates delight on the beach! I've started packing healthy choices and am limiting myself to cooking in the condo and one night out freebie! Good luck and keep it ipt💕
