Sure, I know for most people, letting go and letting lose is good and brings about a sense of freedom and relaxation. For me though, when that happens around food, all of my past problems seem to resurface. When I do not eat the right foods for my body, I gain weight at a crazy rate. I also become very lethargic and whiney! I get acne (yes, even at 51 if you can believe it) and I get headaches that are so excruciating that I must medicate them which means I get a hangover the next day from the meds. So, for me, (and I am stressing that this is me and I am not judging you) staying on plan while away is really helpful.
Am I perfect every time? No. There are some trips that are harder then others. Also, I find that the more I work on this, the better I get. So, I have decided to share what I do in the hopes of being able to show tips and tricks I do that you might be able to take some ideas from.
Every year, my family and I take a trip to the beach. My husband teaches a course in Florida and my daughter and I tag along for some much needed sun and rest. It is a trip that we have done for 10 years now. So, I know the layout of the hotel, the restaurants and the hotel room. My husband is patient as this is the trip that I bring all of my stuff to cook. This is over the top! And…I can really take care of myself here. So, over the next few days I will show you how I am doing it.
Know that for me this is one of the easiest places to be able to take care of myself while traveling because I am familiar with the hotel and finally what to do after 10 years of coming here!
Is there anything in particular you want to see or know about? Send me a message and I will try to respond to all of your questions with examples.
