Being away from home is difficult for me. During my journey, I've had several vacations and been pushed out of my routine many times and I've never come back this off track!
I am up 9 pounds. Is this possible in one week? For those who travel, do you experience this?
Of ALL the vacations I've had, I was the most focused and determined to stay true to my plan. I had two flying days and 5 vacation days. The flying days only having access to restaurant or airplane food and during the vacation we had access to a grocery store, but was unable to cook anything in our room. We had some fresh fruit and yogurt in our room. I am so thankful to live in Oregon, our fruit and veggies are so fresh and wonderful. Even in the winter. The fruit and veggies in Austin were not good! Well at least they were not good at the hotel.
Anyway, I did not have a whole meal the whole time I was there. I halved everything and my Hubby and I either shared or I had the other half for lunch the next day. And a lot of our meals were salads, or a meat with veggies. No sauces, red meats (except one time) and very little bread. I only had two desserts (half servings) and a little candy.
I exercised 4 of the days during the week, not including all the walking at the airport for two days. Of those 4 days, I spent 4 hours the first day, about 40 minutes the 2nd day, 2 1/2 hours the 3rd day, plus we walked another 4 miles that day in the park, then the last day I was in there for 1 1/2 hours.
I drank a lot of water.
I even ate off of small plates. Were my half serving sizes still too big. Did not always look like it to me.
(I did have alcohol each evening - I don't usually do that)
So what happened?
What would have happened if I did not do what I did?
Frequent travelers....any thoughts?
Really disappointed. I never wanted to see 213 again. NEVER!!
I'm back at it today, but not very enthusiastically....
I guess I have a little motivation to keep going. Because if being focused like I was did not help me, what would I be like if I just let myself go...Geez, this is frustrating!
Here's a little Nugget from my toolbox...
Before you can proceed on any great journey, you must have a dream.
The promise of the dream helps you take the first step.
The hope of achieving the dream keeps you going, day after day, even when you feel too tired, too sick, disappointed, or discouraged to take another step.
