Nutrisystem or a Lack There Of
This past weekend was definitely a challenge. What was so challenging about it? Well, I went on a mini cruise vacation… We all know that cruise ships have all-you-can-eat buffets. These are essentially diet busters if you don’t control yourself. In the past I would convince myself that it’s okay to indulge for the weekend since it’s not everyday you go on a cruise. But this time… oh, this time I was not going to let that happen.
Yes, I had a brownie dessert. Yes, I had an ice cream. But what I did differently was that watched what I ate. I ate fruits. I ate vegetables. I mad conscience, healthy decisions that helped me maintain my sanity. I took along my Nutrisystem breakfast bars and snacks. I didn’t eat them all, but having them with me definitely helped. Just looking at the Nutrisystem logo reminded me to stay in check. It reminded me of the mission I was on. I also took along some protein drinks, just to make sure I got in my protein.
Something else I did differently was that I actually worked out. I exercised everyday I was on the ship. They had a great state-of-the-art facility all the way on the 9th floor. That was six floors away from my cabin. I used the stairs about 95% of the time. Whether it was to get to the gym, get off the ship, go to the dining area or just walk around, the stairs were my friend. One of my the few times I was on the elevator, I was immediately reminded why I had chosen to stay away from them. A couple chose to ride the elevator from the third to the fourth floor… need I say more?
So yes, it is possible to stay on track while you are on a cruise or vacation. It’s all about will-power people! If you don’t know, you better ask somebody!!!!
