I love road trips and I can't wait until next week when The Husband, The Little Miss and I are cruising the west on our way to Jackson Hole, WY. We'll be driving for 3 or more days, crossing 4 states and thousands of miles. And I can't wait. Even if I'll have to listen to hours of Dora. On a side note... BackPack if you're reading this, if I have to hear that silly back pack song of yours one more time I may just have to rip you off Dora's back. Sorry for that little rant but all you parents out there, with Dora fans, know exactly what I'm talking about.
Back to the road trip. In my more carefree days, it was an excuse to eat junk food. And even now, in my less carefree days, it still seems like an excuse to eat junk food. This could be bad.
Nothing screams ROAD TRIP to me as much as fast food does. It's hard to think of driving for hours without a stop at Mickey D's. And honestly, McDonald's is pretty much the only fast food I'll eat. Well, besides that and In N' Out, but their fries aren't nearly as delicious. I know I should pack healthy snacks but there something about eating a bag of carrots that just doesn't seem quite as appealing to me as munching on some greasy and salty french fries from Mc Donalds.
My goal is not to stress or worry too much about what may happen on our vacation when it comes to food and exercise. I already know my eating is going to be horrible. I know I won't be able to drink as much water while on the road unless we want to stop every hour. I already know that I won't be exercising for at least the first few days of vacation and I know my body will react. What I also know is that this week is one little hiccup and I'll try to negotiate my way through without too much damage. If I stick to what's been working for me it shouldn't be too disastrous. I've gone on this weight loss journey with the mantra, have what you want, just be careful of how much you eat of it. If I stick with that, I should come out ok.
