Eating Healthy on Vacation
I'm so proud of myself, y'all! I went on a two-week road trip with my son and managed to stick pretty closely to my diet. I even lost a few pounds! Here's how I managed to stay on track during my vacation:
I made my packing list while keeping my meal plan in mind. I also booked accommodations that had full kitchens. (More on that in a moment.)
BRINGING FOOD FROM HOME
I stocked up on the essentials (and a few treats) before we hit the road. I even bought an ice chest to keep things cool from one destination to the next. Having food with us helped take away some of the temptation of unhealthy, fast food. And since I had already paid for groceries, I didn't want to spend even more money on dining out every day.
COOKING OUR MEALS
We stayed in homes that had full kitchens so I could cook the majority of our meals. This was the best way to maintain control over what we ate. It also gave me peace of mind knowing that Trace and I were still getting lots of nutrition on the road.
Trace and I walked miles and miles, hiking up and down trails. It was great exercise, and I was so busy enjoying the scenic views (and trying to keep up with Trace) that I wasn't even thinking about food.
