I just got back from a week in Miramar Beach in Destin. As the popular song says, “Back to Life, Back to Reality” and I am adding the next verse, “Back to tracking points…yeah!”
I took last week off from worrying about what I ate. I was still conscious but I did splurge and we ate out a few times. I was on vacation and I allowed myself to eat sugar and things with butter. I might pay the price at my weigh in on Friday but I will deal with it when I get there.
The hubby and I went to Destin with my sister, her husband and their three kids.
I love my sister so much! Her hubby and kids are cool too!
Every morning, I got to
run walk with this sexy beast.
Check out the view we had for our daily walk.
I knew that if I got up every day and went on a nice long walk, it would help counteract the eating I would do that day. We walked every day for at least an hour. It was great. This is a great tip for vacation. Get up early and go for a walk. You will see new things and the walk will go by quickly and then you will have a good start to your day!
Our favorite meal was at The Back Porch in Destin.
If you are headed to Destin or Ft. Walton Beach area, you MUST go eat here. We actually ended up there twice and the food rocked. The view from where we ate was amazing!
The food was awesome. We loved the broiled crab claws for an appetizer and for the meal, I had the Tuna.
It was a beautiful thing.
After eating dinner, we headed to the beach for a quick sunset picture.
This was by far our favorite meal. It was so yummy and you must go there if you are in that area.
Days were spent on the beach where peanut butter and jelly tastes better than at home!
Nights were filled with walks on the beach, dinners out, dinners in, and just hanging out with family.
Yes, we went with the whole khaki and white theme. The kids however went with the old 80′s Airbrush!
Love them like they were my own!
We even got in a little shopping at the outlets where Jason and I were asked to share a dressing room. When in the same dressing room, of course a silly picture must take place!
We had a great trip and are already looking forward to our beach trip next year.
What is your opinion on vacation and staying on track? Do you tend to “take the week off” or stay focused on your weight loss goals?
