Okay, here it is confession time. Last week and a half I’ve really fallen off the wagon. I was away from home traveling. I had good moments and also horrendous moments when it came to making good food choices and being active.
A 12 hour car ride can definitely put an impact on the ability to be active. I mean dancing in my seat I don’t think really counts. As for eating while being in the car for 12 hours fast food and convienance stores don’t always offer the best food choices. I did my best by getting fruit and cheese cups or veggie trays, but you can only live off that for so long. I of course save myself with the whole beverage thing as I only drink water. So, no wasted calories, unwanted sugar, or other garbage there.
When we reached Jacksonville and visited with family I stuck with healthy options at the restaurants. Or the healthiest options that they offered.
As for activity I did do some fun things that got me out and moving. I posted about one of those activities earlier. I visited the Catty Shack Sanctuary. I got to wander the grounds and see all the big cats and also watched the nighttime feeding.
Here’s a glimpse of one of the tigers in case you missed that post.
And, well then I spent 4 days on a cruise. Yes, a cruise. It was an impromptu vacation. It was great. However, food and drinks were consumed and not in small increments. However, there was a lot of wandering the ship and the ports we visited.
We wandered all over Nassau, Bahamas.
We also went to Freeport where I had one of the best days of my life. I got to swim with Dolphins!!!!
So yes I got some swimming and walking and even stair climbing in while on vacation definitely not as much exercise as I should be getting in but I did some. Now I’m back and it’s time to really step it up.
Have a great Sunday evening.
