Every year, we have a family vacation at Indian Lake and we are there for 10 days. This usually means 10 days of snacking, drinking and just having complete fun. Being positioned just over 30 days into my goal of getting fit (Project Tony Melt) was certainly a risky proposition.
I am happy to say that I was able to stick to my plan. I had more free time to exercise without any time constraints. I tried to make fairly good decisions on food and snacks. I only missed my net calories (total consumed minus those burned off through focused exercise) one time and only by a couple of hundred calories. Plus, I took my scale with me to help ensure accountability.
I didn’t lose a lot of weight on vacation, but I did get down 4 pounds over the past 11 days. I also started my blood pressure medicine and the impact was immediate. I am fully in the normal/ideal zone with no side effects. Score!
Last week’s stats:
Distance walked: 41.34 miles
Total calories burnt: 32,504
Total calories consumed: 15,370
Weight change: 2.5 pounds lost
