I am back from a super duper weekend at the cottage. This was the first time we had a larger group of friends up this year and we had a blast.
I fit my weekend workout in by using a jumbo bottle of water as a weight and lunging and squatting, etc around the cottage while it was raining. Plus, when we’re at the cottage we have a pretty active weekend. I just mapped out how far it is to walk from the cottage to the beach and back and it’s 3.3 km. Then we bob around and swim in the lake for a few hours. Better than lying around on some lawn chairs right?
There’s always lots of walking while we’re there AND we have bikes, so many bikes.
Obviously, the food / drink intake is less than stellar on a cottage weekend. We had tonnes of fruit and veggies and lots of water. But there’s also beer, poutine from the insanely delicious food cart down the street, and potato chips. I’m not going to analyze every calorie I ate over the weekend, but I will say that I snacked FAR less than usual. That’s the goal for August right – do better than before and see what happens.
I don’t have a weigh in for you today since we got back last night and we haven’t gone to the gym yet (that’s where my scale is). But I will definitely be weighing myself before my workout tonight and posting my FIRST WEEK WEIGH IN tomorrow. This whole weight loss task still seems insanely daunting but I’m sticking with it I tell ya!
Right now I’m at the library working. Working at the library is much better for me.
- Air conditioning (this is reason alone to come here!)
- I counted that it takes 58 steps to the rest room here. At home I can walk from my desk to the the bathroom in like 5 steps.
- No kitchen means no mindless snacking. Brad and I had brunch before I came and I am filling up on water until I head home for a late lunch/ snack time.
How do you manage a long weekend trip while on a weight loss plan?
