This is my last week at work before my two week vacation to visit family! Yay! I am *so* ready for a vacation. I'll miss my hubby hardcore, but it will be good to see my big crazy family again.
Things are going to be a bit different this go round though. Usually, I vacation around food. Olive Garden when we leave the airport after we land, then Sonic every day I'm in my hometown. No, I'm not kidding. My usual meal from sonic is just under 1400 calories. !!!!! My daily budget right now is just over 1900 calories. Holy. Crap. I'll hit Fazoli's, too. And snag a Chili Cheese Burrito (or 5) from Taco Bell. They don't sell those up here anymore, and they are SO STINKING YUMMY. Then at some point, a trip to my absolute favorite restaurant ever, which is about an hour away from my hometown. It's all good old fashioned southern cooking. Chicken and dumplings, chicken fried steak, ham slices the size of your head. Then of course, Olive Garden on the way back to the airport. This time though, I have way more willpower than I did last time I was there, and my sister Cat will be there to help me along. She's dropped over 50 pounds herself, so she'll help keep me accountable. I'm not going to completely avoid these places. I just won't be there every single day, and I'll make smarter choices when I do go.
Now, I work out every M-W-F-Sa morning. I'll be two entire weeks without my gym. Once again, Cat to the resue. Her and her hubby do Beach Body workouts. I'm really looking forward to doing those with them. I think it'll be really good for me to do someting totally different than I'm used to. Especially since I've been sitting at the same weight for two weeks. I'm fearing this is the beginning of a plateau, and I'd much rather bust through it before it really takes hold. I know two weeks does not a plateau make, but I'd really just rather prevent one if possible. :)
