Take It Off: Vacationitis {Week Seventeen}

Medifast | Week Seventeen

This past week, I suffered from a severe case of vacationitis. Now, I didn’t throw caution to the wind {and Medifast}. No sir. I tried to stay on plan as best as possible. But, there were a ton of temptations.

I found myself falling onto a 4-2 plan versus the 5-1 plan. This worked because we went out to lunch with family a few times and I didn’t have to just sit there and watch them eat. I opted for salad bars for lunch and this worked out well.

Dinner? Well that was a different story. There was spaghetti {which I avoided with a spaghetti squash}. There was pizza {which I ate with a salad}. There was steak with roasted veggies {yum!}. There was baked chicken and veggies. Now that I think about it, maybe I didn’t do that bad after all!

But the car ride back got to me again. It’s so hard to sit in a car for 4 hours, bored out of your mind, and not think about eating constantly. What? Just me?

drink more waterI think what stalled me the most was not keeping up with my water. This has been a problem for a while now and I need to come up with tricks to get all my water in. When I drink all my water, I lose. I know this. I just have to do it.

Do you have any tricks to get all your water in for the day?

Needless to say, I am in major detox mode today. Chugging down water. Sticking to plan strictly. I know it will pay off this week when I hit -30 lbs. I will do this!
