Ok.. Its time for real talk!
And it has been a while..
Vacation is HARD when it comes to eating healthy!
My vacation started off great, I packed my healthy snacks and was so mentally prepared to have a healthy vacation.
When we got to Calgary we went to a really healthy resturant called The Chopped Leaf and I had a healthy spicy grilled chicken balsamic wrap. This resturant is a must try for those of you healthy eaters in YYC.
We drove to Banff and went to Chilis for supper where I chipotle chicken salad.
Both were delicious and I felt so good.
Over the course of the next 6 days I began making a list of bad choices when it comes to my meals. Could I have eaten worse? Definitley. I made deicisons that weren’t as healthy as I had initially planned but I still tried to make concious ones.
After the first two days I pretty much felt like crap all week. I went from feeling so healthy to feeling awful after every meal.
And lets not get carried away.. I still made “better” choices..
When everyone got beaver tails… I did not. However, I ate so many foods I wasn’t used to eating and it killed my stomach.
Could I have done better? YES and I wish I had. Not because I didn’t lose weight but because of how I felt from the foods I was eating.
Sluggish. Tired. Awful.
On your next vacation worry less about food and more about how you feel. You will enjoy your vacation more!..
If you do indulge a little to much. Drink too much wine like I did.. Move on, get over it and start fresh.
I still had the BEST vacation ever.
Check out those views. Banff is a MUST see.
