So, as I’ve mentioned, I’m going home to FL tomorrow to do wedding stuff, try on my wedding dress AND go to Universal Studios.
Usually, my trips home mean “eat all the things” - and I do mean ALL. Because I don’t get my hometown favorites more than 4x a year, I have a tendency to gorge on everything while i have the opportunity.
And in my mind, this trip will be no different.
HOWEVER - I want to be able to come back from this weekend without having gained 15lbs (or any pounds, that would be nice), so I’m stuck about what to do.
I know it’ll be a crazy quick trip, with vendor meetings and everything, but I’m still going to bring my workout stuff. There is a really great running trail near my mom’s house that I’m hoping to become reacquainted with.
But here’s where you guys come in…
How do I ensure that my trip home will be a healthy success without completely depriving myself? Is it possible?
- maryfreakingsunshine answered:Keep your goal in mind. Have bites of your friends food, but keep yours clean. Or compromise. Get that burger but protein style with salad.
- runfrostyrun answered:I say don’t do it. Packed lunches and clean groceries. You’ll have plenty of time post-wedding to indulge once again! You’re doing SO great!!

- lizshealthylife answered:ME TOO! only eat the things you REALLY want and split with someone else when you can! even a quick workout is better than nothing!
- l-8-10 answered:I know this feel, bro. I get to go home once a year. I feel the need to eat everything… I think you just need to plan for the indulgences.
