Sharing new and exciting experiences with my family connects me in a way that few other events allow. The activities and the meals are moments that I will always cherish.
I realized that since day one of my vacation, I do not comply with some of the healthy lifestyle rules I encourage others to follow. While in some situations I have limited choices or no healthy alternatives at all, there are also situations that I do have a choice but I choose poorly.
For the last several days I don’t use all tools and routines that had led me to weight loss, and later to effective maintenance of healthy weight. I don’t do much of the planning of where (what) I will eat. I also skip some of the healthy routines that work so well for me when I am home or at work.My justification is that a few days of less than full compliance with healthy eating is not going to be a big deal. Plus, I am on vacation and vacation is a time to relax and enjoy life. Pretty hypocritical, isn’t it?
It will all end and go back to norm after the second week is over, but it struck me how easy it is for me just to ignore my unhealthy imperfections.
