I have worked really hard since the beginning of this year to get to where I am today. I have lost 23 lbs and need a little bit smaller clothes now. In reflecting over the past few years in my food journal, I noticed a pattern. Usually when I go on vacation, I get in the vacation mindset and lose my determination to stay the path. I gain 5-10 lbs and give up on tracking food. I go several months before deciding to start it again.
I just had an emotional breakdown. As we prepare to go on vacation, I flipped out realizing I don't usually survive vacation. We are visiting relatives, which means eating what they serve, and not knowing how to count the calories on here for what is in the food. I don't want a bunch of fast food, or greasy food, etc. I will have to buy some apples to keep on hand or something. For the first time, I am actually scared to go on vacation. I don't want to backtrack. I did backtrack for a few weeks in April. I am taking Insanity with me and will get a workout in a few days, but I know I will be tired from sitting in a car for too long. I definitely want to keep my determination! I know I may be off for a few days on here because of visiting people, and I will learn to rely on God in a whole knew way. I definitely need help!
