Today we are off to FL for our final trip of the summer. This is a big one. We will be gone for 11 days at my in-laws. Lucky they have a pool at their house, live close to the beach and have a boat.
I am nervous about a few things. The biggest ones are related to the toddler. How will he act on the plane? How will he be at the in-laws? And how will he sleep? Not to mentioned the unguarded pool just outside the French doors at their house.
I know my weight loss is non existent. The only place I have made progress is with all the mental crap. I have decided I will treat this trip truly as a vacation. I am going to vacation from thinking about my weight loss. I will vacation from exercise. I will vacation from limiting myself. I will vacation from my head and my To Do list.
I’m not giving myself free license to gain, get flabby, not exercise and eat like a pig. It just won’t be the center of my existece. I am going to enjoy my family and engage. Exercise may be hard to come by because I will melt outside. Humidity and I are vicious enemies. I will move in the pool and do some body weight exercises – push ups, squats, etc. I will not binge.
When I get back it will be go time.
I have scheduled a ton of posts – confessionals, few reposts, stories, pictures, updates, etc.
Wish me luck on the plane with a very active 2.5 year old.
