Project 10: Upcoming Vacations

I'm still on a losing streak, down another pound! I've also finally figured out how to stay within my calorie range on My Fitness Pal. For one thing, I've been eating healthier food. Also, I've trained my body to not eat all day long. I used to eat constantly. Not because I was hungry, but because I wanted to. Now I snack when i'm hungry, and I eat one reasonable snack at a time. I also eat meals until I'm full, and then stop. It's been a big challenge, but I haven't binged on food in a long time. My water consumption is up, but not quite where I want it to be. This will be another week of working on that goal!

I'm very happy with the progress I've made, but I'm getting nervous about the fact that I have two vacations coming up. This weekend I'm taking the kids camping with my parents. There will be a lot of food. Snacks, homemade (elaborate) breakfasts, smores, ice-cream, etc. My hope is to continue tracking, so that I'm aware of what i'm eating. But i'm not going to deprive myself. I go camping once a year, so I'm going to eat what I want, in moderation.

Then as soon as I come home i'm heading to NYC for BlogHer12. I have no idea what the food is going to be like there, and to be honest I have no intention of tracking what I eat. I'm there to learn, network and have fun, so I don't want to stress out about what i'm eating. I'm just hoping that I'll be so busy I won't have time to pig out, and that there will be a lot of walking for exercise.

I'd love for you to share some of your tips on how to stay healthy on vacation! Because although I refuse to stress out about my food intake while I'm away, I don't want to come home 5 pounds heavier. I've worked hard losing these 6! :)

As always, thanks to Stephanie from Stephanie's Mommy Brain for putting this project together. And feel free to link up your own health/fitness post! I love to read them all. Gives me extra motivation. ;) 3 hours ago · Like


  1. I am bringing snacks and water with me to Blogher. Just in case I get hungry or thirsty and am tempted to eat junk. Like nuts & bars.

  2. Oh and great job! Can't wait to hear about your camping trip! We love to camp.

  3. Order/take what you want- then only eat half!!

  4. Great job on the continued success!! You are doing fantastic.

    I'm trying to figure out my plan for BlogHer - I'm thinking when going out to eat I'll try to split entrees with someone, sharing the calories and the cost!!! I figure too if I walk as many places as possible and avoid taking cabs or the subway any more than absolutely necessary I'll be able to burn a few of the drinks I know I'll have.

  5. Great job on the losing streak!! I plan on just picking the healthiest options at Blogher and still tracking calories, I can't fall off the wagon yet! Keep up the great work, can't wait to see you next week!
