Vacation, Temptation

Submitted by Hillary on Tue, 10/24/2006 - 11:57pm.

I’m on vacation this week, which is making it a little difficult for me to stick with my usual healthy eating.  I had been worried about breaking routine and being able to eat right while we were traveling.  As it turns out, we ended up staying home, so I have a little more control over my food choices.  Still, my brain is in vacation mode, and since my trip didn’t happen, I think I do deserve a treat or two.  My blood sugar is looking fine, but I have not been doing so great with the healthy choices so far.  Today I had five Reese’s mini peanut butter cups, two handfuls of candy corn, a couple of servings of veggie chips and a glass of ginger ale.  Not too bad, but not fabulous either.  Plus we got takeout, which, while tasty, was most definitely not good for me. 

I won’t let myself get into a bad pattern here. I’ll allow myself a few treats, and I’ll make sure I get plenty of exercise.  Moderation is the key.  That and getting to the grocery store for some healthy snacks.  I do know that if I have them around, I’ll be less likely to eat the junky stuff.  And surely it is possible to have fun and not overeat at the same time, right?
