I learned not long ago that even though you’re on vacation, it doesn’t mean that you have to be reckless. I just started a 12-day roadtrip to see family and planned out how I was going to approach it in the food dept well before I even knew what stops I was going to make. As I’ve mentioned before in other posts, you have to plan, plan, plan!! Arranging your world for success can be applied to so many scenarios so vacationing shouldn’t be an exception.
When I was in the mandatory part of the program I attended for 30 weeks, my dietician drove the point home that vacations or special events shouldn’t be a path to reckless abandon. If I even fathomed doing something “bad”, I knew I needed to get right back on the horse before the horse rode away with the rope around my neck. So far I’ve had a little nibble of praline pecans and maybe a taste or two of some regular people food (LOL) but I matched that immediately with some healthy activity. In fact today I took a morning walk and an afternoon walk.
So when it comes to vacations, it’s not your get out of jail free card BUT you can still have a little fun!
