Why am I going on such a potentially gluttonous vacation instead of to...I don't know, a dude ranch? Well, it's called compromise, my friends. My wife/MIL/SIL get a large family vacation in paradise and I get...a 24-hour dessert buffet? Therein lies the challenge.
Anyway, please leave your best tips in the comments.
9 Fruits and Vegetables per day - Grade: B-. I did OK, mostly in the five to six range. Compared to pre-P.O.P. levels, this is great. When I have good fruit and vegetable options, I do great. But I haven't gotten good at creating opportunities to eat fruits and vegetables yet.
9 Sweets or Snacks per week - Grade: C. Very inconsistent on this one. When I'm tired, I start snacking late in the day. I must figure this out. If not, I might find myself using Lisa's A is for Abstinence plan, changing 9-9-9 to 9-0-9.
9 Miles on Foot per week - Grade: A. I did it! Walked 2 miles on Sunday. Trick or treated with an active group for two solid hours, which I estimate at 2 miles. Walked to dinner when working late Tuesday, 1 mile. Walked to my son's soccer game Saturday, taking the scenic route, 4 miles.
Have a great week everybody!
