Well ladies, I am about to go on VACA!!!!!!!  Woo-hoo!!!!  I am so ready for this damn vacation, I can taste it!! So I thought I would do a post on how I stay on track, on vacation! It won't be easy, I know this for a fact!  I mean all the warm ocean air does is make me want to sip on pina coladas and listen to Jimmy Buffet while munching on a grouper sandwich and fries!!  I mean isn't that everyone does???

BUT...Instead of diving headfirst into the above items, well minus Buffet, I am not diving into that! :)
I will be a good girl, with moderate bad girl ways.  So for instance, I am going to always eat a healthy breakfast, no matter what!  We are staying at my mom's so this will be easy.  When we go to Disney,  I will  bring breakfast bars.  Easy peasy!   For lunches, I will try and let this be my "fat girl" meal, if need be.  And by that, I mean if I am feeling fried, I am getting fried.  BUT...I will make my sides, healthy options.  I will also try and fill up on salad first and a huge glass of water.  As far as alcoholic beverages go, I like beer in warm weather.  My new FAVORITE beer is Beck's Premier. It has 64 calories but doesn't taste like watered down piss!  And no I have never tried watered down piss.  Or just plain piss for that matter!
I recommend you all give it a try.  Even my beer snob hubby likes it!  I pair mine with beer salt and a lime.  If that is not available there is my go to drink, I bet you can guess what it is!  If you follow me on IG, you have seen this a lot. :)
DING DING DING!!!  Wine is right!! I will be on vacation with my little sis and my dad.  Both enjoy a lovely glass of wine or 2 or 3 or 4...when I come to town! And let's not forget, my kids will be with me and we are going to Disney. That alone could drive me to drink!!  Oh and the forecast for that day, 88 freaking degrees!! Holla!!! I will be sweating my balls off and my husbands too! But I can't wait! 

For dinner's I plan to make my appetizer, the "bad" food and my dinner healthy.  So for instance, I LOVE buffalo shrimp!!  I can order this, share it with the masses and still stay on track! OMG I love buffalo shrimp.  I even lick my fingers clean!!  Oh what a sight that will be.  Maybe I will post a pic of that!
For my entrees I will get my seafood broiled, blackened or grilled.  OR...I will get crab legs.  AND NO, I do not drown them in butter.  I actually do not like butter.  Even on my corn on the cob and popcorn.  I gave it up years ago, when I was starting out on my journey.  I have yet to miss it! For my sides I will get a plain baked potato and veggies.  Or whole grain rice if they offer it.  When it comes to sandwiches, I will get turkey burgers or grilled sandwiches and only eat half the fries, if that is the side offered. And once again, drink plenty of water first and get a salad!

The reason I do this, so I don't come home hating myself and regretting bad choices.  I have done that too many times.  It sucks and I don't want to go there, this time.  When we went to Disney in late September, I was good most of the time and bad a little.  I came home and had lost weight!  So that is what I am shooting for this time as well.  Well I don't care if I lose, really.  I just don't want to come home feeling like a bloated pig!  Or looking like this:
I plan to walk a lot at Disney and I am bringing my 30-day shred and ripped in 30 dvd's.  I may or may not take them out of the suitcase, but I am going into it with the best intentions!

Oh I forgot about snacks!  This is where it might get tricky!  My mom ALWAYS has twizzlers and starburst laying around.  Yeah, I know!!!  Those are the snacks that you just can't have one of.  So I am going to make sure I eat fruit or protein of some form, before I dive into a bag of candy.  AND...when I do have the craving, I will chug a big glass of water, it will make me "feel" full.  I am a huge ice cream freak, so this is where I will allow myself to stray from the norm.  Sorry, I just can't say no, just not in me!  Somehow my DNA has it where that whole ice cream blocker gene is non-functioning.  Cest la vie!  :)

I will report back on how all of these plans, pan out.  Wish me luck!!
