I'm still really stagnant in my mission to make myself over. I'm not really going backwards and gaining again...YET. But I know it's only a matter of time if I don't get back in the swing of things. PLUS I go to girl's camp on Monday, and I'm afraid the hike is going to kick my butt!
Walking 3 miles is something I can accomplish easily enough. Hiking a trail for 3 miles at an elevation of 6500 feet (hello...oxygen anyone?) is a whole 'nother story! So I'm pretty much preparing to make a fool of myself. Whatever. So Amber's question for us today:
Share with us some of your vacation survival strategies.
Hello, how much do we love to eat on vacations? Do you sometimes get the feeling that as a society this is like a 'free pass' to just indulge?? It seems that way to me.
Well, since girls camp is 5 days long, and we have a specific menu, and food we will be providing for the girls, I can't very well take a weeks worth of my own "diet food" and eat every day up there! So I'm going to take up some healthy snacks for myself, and really try to practice the whole "portion control" thing.
Also...it's my plan to use the "free time" we have each day to go on a brisk walk on the trails. I figure exercise in the mountains will definitely burn more calories than walking on my measley old treadmill...right? Wish me luck!
And please...tell me...what are some of your vacation strategies? If you'd like to link up to Extreme Makeover: Me Edition, head over to Amber's and leave a comment!
