Today we spent the day getting ourselves down to Seattle and are currently holed up in a Super 8 right next to the airport. We can hear planes flying in and out every few minutes - hopefully we will able to get some sleep! My earplugs might come in handy tonight... We have a 5 am wake-up call and a 6:30 shuttle for our 8:30 am flight. We are first flying to Philadelphia (5 hours) then onto Madrid (2 hr layover + 8 hr flight) and then finally to Barcelona (4 hr layover + 1 hr flight). It is going to be a LONG DAY!! But then we'll be in Spain :)
Last night I was too tired and busy packing to do a proper pre-vacation post so here goes Part 2. I wanted to jot down some thoughts about how I am going to handle weight maintenance while I'm away. Well...I'm going to enjoy myself but make sure I choose things that are worth it. I'm going to eat all the delicious food (and drink the wine!) Spain and Paris have to offer since this is a once in a lifetime opportunity! I am not going to track or worry too much, but I'm not going go crazy either. I will use my jeans as a guide - I hope they aren't too tight by the end of the trip. Realistically I will probably gain some weight, but since it's only 10 days I hope it won't be too much damage. And we plan to walk A LOT so hopefully that will help a little. Either way this is only 10 days of my life and the day I return I will be back on plan!! I will be back at goal weight for sure by the end of April (when I HAVE to weigh in and WW) but hopefully I can get back before then.
This trip comes at a good time for me. I have been pretty stressed lately about some work and life issues. This will be a perfect opportunity for me to relax, unwind, and spent some quality time with my husband. I am going to try my hardest to make the most of it!
I'm not sure when my next post will be - maybe not until I return. Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
