I had the best vacation ever!!! I hit my goal weight the day before we left and I enjoyed every minute of our trip. It’s to be expected that I have put on a few pounds after two weeks on vacation. What I had forgotten about is the post vacation diet rebound. In order to keep the vacation vibe going I tend to overindulge, and this month is Portland Restaurant Month where the best restaurants in town offer a three course menu for $29.
Needless to say I am having a bit of trouble with moderation. Luckily the one thing that’s going on track is my exercise habit. I feel very lucky to have the convenience of a stationary bike at home. It eliminates the excuses and makes things so easy for me. We are also very fortunate to be having really great weather in Portland right now.
I want to remember how ecstatic I was when I hit my goal weight, it was one of the best feelings. I feel like the bathing suit weather vacation really gave me the drive to meet my goals. I have a birthday coming up in just over a month and I want to get back to my pre vacation weight. I need to go back to doing exactly what I was doing before I left. I know it works and hopefully it will be easy to fall into those habits. I need to do a full hour of cardio most days and weights a few times a week. I also need to record my calories in myfitnesspal app for every bite I take and I need to leave some calories on the table at the end of each day. There, now I just need to execute.
