We've only been here 24 hours, but already it feels like I'm on island time, which means whenever we get there -- wherever "there" happens to be -- it's the right time.
On vacation, I struggle with how much indulgence is enough. When we came to Hawaii last year, I was training for Women's Tri-Fitness, so I was very careful about what I ate. This year that's not the case, and it makes it hard to know when to say when. I'm pretty sure I had a few too many chocolate covered macadamia nuts last night, though. I couldn't bear to look at the actual calorie count, but I did catch sight of the fact that the package I ate -- well the stupid manufacturers of the package -- think there are FIVE servings in that package. Pffffft. Whatever.
Here's what I get fitness brownie points for:
Lifting weights this morning
Doing cardio this afternoon
Smart ordering at dinner tonight
Here are the things that negate any brownie points:
a few chocolate macadamia nuts (ok -- 5 servings! but they were really good!!!)
splitting a huge package of donuts with my husband tonight (YUM!)
I think I'm going to exercise a little more moderation in the next week, cuz it just sucks to have to spend a month working off just a few days of crazy eating. The tradeoff is just not worth it.
COMPLETE CHANGE OF THOUGHT
I felt SO THIN at the airport yesterday, and you can too. Here's how:
Buy some pants when you're at a heavy weight.
Lose weight, but keep pants.
Then wear pants while travelling. The resulting illusion of Nicole Richie-like waifness makes the airport Cinnabon (should that have made it onto a list before, or does it not count, since it was consumed on the mainland?) go down real easy!
