I Love Vacation. My Waistline Does Not.

I love vacation.  I love Tahiti.  Alas, rich French foods all day everyday for 7 days + minimal activity + 4 days of Vegas over indulgence = an unwanted additional 15 pounds.

* By “minimal activity”, I mean besides lifting my wine glass to my lips, pointing to random fish/clams and announcing their presence to my husband.

Yes.  15 POUNDS.  I’m so sad.  It’s not like I’m in my 20’s any more where I can magically shrink just by thinking about it.  The downside of being 30  is that I have to actually work at it.

So fine.  I accept.  Game on.

I’m going to start chronicling what I eat again.

Breakfast – one slice wheat toast, 1/2 serving cream cheese, 1 serving smoked salmon, 1 serving lettuce.

Lunch – the same.

Plan for dinner – Shakeology shake in chocolate with low fat milk.

Snack – apples.

Exercise – I clocked in an average of 3 – 5 miles a day from working 12.5 hour shifts as a nurse.  Gonna add in 3 days of 30 minutes on the treadmill starting tomorrow.

…..not as fun as fried chicken and pizza but I’m vain and I want to look fly in my clothes.

Hey, at least I’m honest.

    15 pounds of leisure and no stress… just think of it as an equal trade? : P
    My fiance and I are thinking of Italy or France for our honeymoon. I think I can safely say that I’ll be seeing an extra 10 pounds in my near future. Haha. I’m vain too. Hey, a girl needs to shop and if I’m charging something I’d better look cute in it. : )

    Having a food journal helps me too. If you don’t have one yet, I suggest myfitnesspal.com. There’s a great message board that helps. Good luck!

      As long as I can squeeze into my size small scrubs, I am happy! I don’t care if the seams groan a bit. ^^
