Phew. We were on a week’s RV camping vacation last week, and I ate some horrible foods! I didn’t know what to expect. Well, okay, yes, I DID expect to come home and weigh myself this AM and be on the heavier side. I was relieved to find out that I’m okay. Phew.
I kept track of all I ate, and yes, I did go over on a few days. But I worked out like a fiend, walking, jogging, biking, kayaking as much as I could. I think that definitely helped!
I don’t want this to alter my psychological outlook, thinking that I’m going to pull through even while making a lot of bad food choices. It’s NOT alright to keep eating whoopie pies, chips, fried clams, lobster rolls, and tollhouse pies because eventually I won’t be able to stop and yes, the weight will definitely start to creep back!
It’s a fact that toward the end of the week, when my food choices were dipping deeper into the dark side, it was a lot more difficult to keep strong and refuse temptation. I felt like eating even when I wasn’t hungry. It’s a true compulsive addiction! I succumbed to nutritionally void foods high in sugars and bad fats, and I craved them more.
So, now I just need to move forward and get back my positive perspective. Good food and fitness choices make my life good. Poor choices will keep feeding a chain of more bad choices! I need to keep remembering that!
But in reality, I know vacations have a “cheat mentality” built into them, so I will be going through the same thing a couple more times this summer. But it’s okay, as long as I go back to the “good side” after vacation is over!
