My sister and I are leaving for a 4-day road trip today to visit our grandparents in Maryland and New Jersey. I will be blogging while I’m gone, but I won’t be able to answer> comments, so please save your burning questions until I get back. I’m not sure of my computer access, but I should be able to post at least once a day. I’ll probably do a big photo recap instead of posting each meal, but I’ll have to asses when I get there. So forgive me for not being as consistent as normal! I’ll be back home back at it on Friday.
Here’s my schedule
Today: Drive to my parents’ house in Hillsborough. Dinner out with old friends.
Monday: Up really early (no workout), drive to Towson, Maryland, shopping in the afternoon, walk??, out to dinner.
Tuesday: Hoping to run early in the AM, drive to Lakewood, New Jersey, out to dinner.
Wednesday: Out to lunch, hoping for a walk in the afternoon and/or a swim in my grandparents’ indoor pool! They keep it at 90* 8) It’s small so I won’t be able to swim laps, but I should get a little movement in. Out to dinner.
Thursday: Drive all the way home. Lunch on the road. Subway??
So as you can see, I’ll be really busy and my only exercise will be walking and maybe a run or two. I also have at least 4 meals out – maybe even closer to 6 – so this week will be QUITE a challenge!!
I always have a plan in the back of my mind. My goal is to not count calories but to focus on eating the healthiest foods I can and watching my portions of the ones that aren’t so healthy. I’m going to skip alcohol unless I really feel that it would enhance the dining experience and keep desserts to few bites. I WILL NOT let loose and pig out on this trip!
The good news is, I’m in maintenance now and if I gain a little this week (which I certainly will), I will just be extra careful about eating clean, whole foods next week and I’ll be back to point one soon enough!
If anyone asks where I am, please point them to this post!!
See you all soon
