Day 31

Posted by iwanttodothat on September 30, 2009

This afternoon, we will be traveling to Walt Disney World Resort for a much needed 8-day vacation. There are going to be some major food challenges. As far as fitness goes, I will get plenty of exercise walking all day every day, but not a 45-minute walk/run and strength-training. I’m going to try to update as often as I can, so you can see what sorts of challenges I’m encountering on a family vacation. Foremost in my mind is that I don’t want to lose any of the progress I’ve made thus far. I’m not sure I can eat a huge meal any more, so that will be working for me! I will be packing a few things to help me stick to some version of my eating plan. Maggie has generously allowed me one cheat meal, and I’m really trying to figure out when I’m going to take advantage of that. I need to stick to this. If I can maintain my eating and fitness plan on schedule, I will be 80, that’s right, 80 pounds lighter when it’s time for the Disney 5K the first weekend in 2010. Wow. That should help keep me honest!

    Have a great time on your vacation! My tip to you would be to carry a bag at all times with heathly snacks (cut up veggies if you can, almonds, fruit) and always have a bottle of water. Vacations can be hard, but if you think about how far you’ve come and where you want to be you’ll feel amazing turning down those temptations at every chance! Take some pictures!

  2. Have they got a gym at the resort? I’ll bet someone there would help you keep up with the strength training, at least a little bit each day or every couple of days. Good luck, and HAVE FUN!!!
