On Vacation - staying on plan

So, since late last week, we've officially been on vacation. My husband has been off work and we've been taking a relaxed, play it by ear type of vacation. We're going camping, but the weather was rainy, so for the start of it, we did stuff around home: swimming, biking, play.

This week things are getting sunny, so we're packing up the tent and heading to the mountains. I plan for this to be a very active camping trip. No just sitting around the campsite, drinking and eating for me. We'll be doing a lot of hiking and exploring. Maybe heading to the hotsprings. We might swing in a different direction and spend a day at the lake.

The thing about food while camping is that you only have what you bring. So, our options will be mainly healthy. There will be a couple of treat foods in there, but nothing that tends to trigger me and only in controlled portions. Lots of fruit, cut up veggies, and whole grains.

So, you may not see me on my blog a lot over the next week.

What are your vacation plans this summer?


  1. Sounds like a good plan! I always find I lose a little weight camping - I think it's the outdoors! Not to mention, the ample activity. Enjoy.

  2. For whatever reason, I always lose a few pounds when on vacation no matter where or what I eat! I think it's because all my stress is back home and there's nothing I can do about it when I'm not there. I haven't had a real vacation in a few years. Next week I am going to DC for work and extending to stay through the weekend. It's not a real vacation but it will give me time to "de-stress".

    Have a great week!

  3. The hectic baseball weekends are all we're going to get this year. If I can get a decent job, maybe more luck next year.

    Enjoy your camping trip! It will be good training for your triathlon.

  4. Have a great camping trip. I think we will be doing a lot more of this during the current summer as well.

    I also like that you are going out and 'doing' things instead of hanging around. I usually get caught up in the food prep and handling and it takes over the trip for me.

    Not this summer.
