Planes, Trains, & Automobiles...well, not trains..

Monday, August 05, 2013

So, my family is hitting the road on Wednesday for a week-long trip back home to NM. I am a bit stressed about the trip for many reasons. First, we are traveling with our 9 month old. It is timed to his naptime and I'm hoping he'll fall asleep on the flight. Any tips for what to pack to keep him entertained are VERY welcome! Luckily the flight is just under 3 hours..not super long. I just picture a screaming baby, passengers rolling their eyes, sweat dripping down my husband's face, me a mangled mess of frizzy hair and tears. I'm probably being very dramatic about this!
Another reason I'm anxious about spending a week away from home is that my husband and I have been very dedicated to our 90 day home workout programs and our diet of clean, whole foods. For the most part. I don't want to lose momentum with my fitness or nutrition. We are taking our DVDs and resistance band with us and will get as many workouts in as we can. I just don't want to lose focus and give in.."well, I might as well get the burger and fries because I'm on "vacation". " Yeah, that is not the mode of thought I want to adopt!
So, I'm trying to go into this next week with confidence and focus! Any tips or words of encouragement are so appreciated :)

    Well I leave for my trip the 16th and we are driving 800 miles or so with a 6 month old lol so I much rather be flying. I'm planning on making some snacks at home and keeping them with me so I try to stay on track with my eating. And walking every day at least 30 mins or some sort of added exercise. Like I know one day is a family reunion on a beach so I'm planning on going swimming for some added exercise that day. Best thing I can say is try to get as much physical activity in while on vacation.

    When I travel it's so hard for me to stay 100% on-track so I allow for a bit of flexibility but overall try to stick with my plan. A few things that work for me:
    ~Exercise first thing in the morning so it actually ends up happening. Otherwise I end up putting it off and it never gets done.
    ~Write down/track what I eat. I allow myself to go a little over calories, but not by much, and writing it down makes me stop and think first.

    Nothing too profound, but that's all I've got =) Good luck with the flight!
