Lifestyle on vacation

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

When most people think of vacation, they think of a place to get away from it all. For us as a family, that's Disney. When we decided we were going, we were caught on which park to go to. One of the reason we choose DW instead of DL was actually for the food options and choices. emoticon

Fast forward to a few months later after I decide to change my lifestyle. Now I am trying to determine how is the best way to do that while I am there. We have the Disney Dining Plan, and will be there for Food & Wine festival.

I am thinking of asking my food plan to be dropped, so I can just pay Out Of Pocket for everything. That way I wont feel the need to over indulge. I will keep the plan though if my MIL and SIL go with us, so we can easily split the food.

I still do plan on running while we are there. Although if all goes well, I'll be done with my 5k training, maybe I'll be able to train for the 10k. :) Our hotel also has a gym, so I'll be able to work on my upper body and legs in my off days. This might be some amount of over kill, so I am going to have to be careful not to over extend myself too much.

The biggest thing though is to stay consistent. Yes this is vacation and normally a time when people relax or drop their diets. However, this is a lifestyle change. It should be with me all the time, no matter the circumstances. I just hope this holds up well in practice as well as it does in theory.
