Making it through the next 10 days

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Following my diet and exercise routine the last week or so has been terribly hard, not really a reason for it except for the fact that it is summer break for the kids and because of my daughter I am usually at home, she can't really go outside where it is hot (today was in the upper nineties and tomorrow we will reach 100), and I tend to fall into the problem of an object at rest tends to stay at rest. So, as much as I am looking forward to our beach vacation, so that I can see something other than the 4 walls of my house or the concrete around a pool deck. I also know how hard it will be to work out and eat right while I am gone ... and to be honest I don't want to worry about it too much, I am on vacation after all ...

So, I will do what I can to get through this first 3 days, where I will be at a swim meet and not able to exercise, then on vacation where I am sure I won't eat very healthy, back to a 2 day swim meet where again, I won't have the time to exercise. Hopefully when I return the scale will be kind. If not, I will not allow myself to feel bad and know that this is a journey and every once in a while taking a side trip is okay.

    Sneak exercise in by walking in place while you're at the swim meet. Walk around the area when your child is not competing. Be mindful of eating healthy foods while you're on vacation and the scale should be kind. There's no reason why you can't bring your new healthy lifestyle on vacation with you. You said you're going to the beach, walking in the sand is great exercise. You might try jogging too. You can do this, good luck on your journey and have a great relaxing vacation. emoticon
