Vacation is when you can eat whatever and drink whatever you want?! That sounds about right! I have a couple of rules about vacation. Eat whatever you want– and don’t feel bad. Sleep whenever you want– and don’t feel bad. Try to workout– if you don’t work out, don’t feel bad. My goal when I vacation is to not feel bad and to let my hair down, because I deserve it! Right?!13241181_10209448486189968_1096367616033361558_n

I had every intention on running on the beach in the morning but to be honest the only thing I did in the morning was go downstair to the restaurant, order my mimosa or bloody mary and ate every fattening thing I could thinking of and then we sat on the beach and looked at some people that would pass us while they were doing their early morning workout! In a sense I feel like when I am on vacation it’s ok to work less, think less and to not workout because I do it every other day of my life!13241181_10209448486189968_1096367616033361558_n

Now, I have stresses that I don’t cheat myself by not eating that chocolate cake that I crave, but I just do it in moderation. When I got back home yesterday I knew 2 things needed to happened. I needed a great detox because let’s face it, I stayed at an all inclusive resort and drunk so much alcohol that if I don’t see another bottle of anything I will be ok. Honestly, I remember drinking water because I felt dehydrated but I drunk more diet soda and alcoholic beverages. Also I knew I needed to get in the gym! I honestly missed working out and I missed my gym, the gym that I am use to! As soon as I got home, I went to the grocery store because we had to food let alone produce and I bought everything for my green smoothies.

I stepped on the scale and I gained 4lbs! That was expected and to be honest I was pissed. Not pissed because I gained weight but pissed because my husband only gained 1lb!!! (really!) I went to the gym after work today and right now I feel great and like back to my old self. Anyway I am getting into the swing of things and thought this giveaway would be appropriate!

  1. Sounds like you had a great time. I am looking forward to our family vacation to Disney this summer. We live at the beach, so we are there all the time 🙂

  2. I love going on vacation, but I feel so guilty about not getting my workouts in so I try to hit up the hotel gym or do an outdoor run (if it’s a sunny place) when I can. Husbands always gain the least amount of weight — I’ll never understand it!

  3. I like to enjoy myself when I am on vacation, and I always make sure I enjoy myself and let go. When I am back, then I deal with the extra weight, but while I am away, I dont even think about it for a second LOL

  4. Oh wow! I feel the same way as you do! Whenever my husband and I go on vacation, I gain more weight than he does…and he ate more! Darn! I think it’s because he has more muscles than me so he burns more cal! 🙁

  5. Wow, it looks like an amazing vacation. The scenery is gorgeous. I probably would’ve skipped the running like you! lol Why is it we gain weight, but the guys never do? Not fair!

  6. It looks like it was a beautiful vacation. I love your outlook – vacation really is all about doing what you want and not feeling guilty about it. 🙂

  7. It looks like such a fun vacation! I agree, vacation is for eating and drinking whatever you want, whenever you want. Also, sleeping whenever you want is good too!

  8. I stick with my regular routine and habits on vacation. It makes me feel good so why not.

    Don’t beat yourself up about 4 pounds. Focus on the vacation memories.

  9. I went on an 8 day cruise and I think I legit gain 11lbs…because of gluttony! I am still trying to shed those pounds now so I think vacay is cool but be prepared to work it out later.

  10. Taking a vacation is definitely the time to let loose and enjoy yourself. I feel like you can always go back to being healthy when the week is over 🙂

  11. I need a break like yours! I just graduated college but haven’t been able to go to an official vacation because of work! I really need a break from routine and go to a very tropical destination!
