vacations are bad for losing weight…

I’ve decided… you can’t lose weight on vacation.

You see, I’m on vacation for several weeks. It’s a working vacation. I’m doing odds and ends around town, projects around the house, coffee with friends and a lunch here or there… and it’s not so much that I can’t eat healthy (because so far I think I have).

But, for these reasons…
– I don’t have a scale at home.
– I am not driving to the gym every day to get on the scale.
– I am not in my normal routine.
– I have so many projects up in the air that I get distracted.
– I am, after all, so used to making excuses for myself… that all of this comes naturally.

I thought for sure I could get my routine going here at home. After all, I do like my bike better at home than the one at the gym I go to in the mornings. And I really do love how the exercise makes me feel and gets me geared up for the day(s).

But I’ve been on vacation for 1 1/2 weeks now and I’ve missed several days of workout. Mainly the last 3 workout days – Thur, Fri and Mon. I’ve been busy with other stuff / projects but it’s not the same.

So, today I’m getting back on the bike and I’m going to find a scale somewhere in town (My Dr’s office will let me hop on their scale, right?!). And then I’ll get back on track. I can’t beat myself up over it for too long – there is no productivity in that.

I have another week and a half of vacation. I can do it!
