The Good and The Bad of Vacay

I will soon post on my other blog about all of the great things I sampled in the restaurants of Charleston. But here, I'll give the WW highlights:

The Bad:
  • I had dessert twice, but both times I split it with my mom. And she's aggressive about making sure she gets at least 50% of what's on the plate!
  • I ate a lot of rich cream-based stuff and a lot of really salty stuff. So I'm sure my fat and sodium intake was way up over the last few days.
  • It was restaurant food all the time, so portions were big and I wasn't as great about balancing fruits and veggies. Oopsie.

The Good:

  • Fish! Lots of fish!
  • We did A LOT of walking. I felt like a lot of the rich stuff I was eating had to be balanced out by all of our walking tours.
  • Mom is an early diner and an early-to-bed person, so I usually was done with dinner by 7 pm and didn't eat anything again until breakfast the next day. So NO SNACKING.

I have no idea how this will affect the scale. I missed today's weigh-in. I'm going to try it out tomorrow, but I may give myself a vacation free pass and work hard this week to counteract any gains.... stay tuned!

I just went to Charleston for work in September and it is SO hard to eat healthy there, everything has butter slabbed all over it and they are always serving bread with everything. and the colleague I went with insisted on going to the hotel with the breakfast buffet.
having said all that, if I'm going to indulge, I'd rather it be good, well prepared food, which everything I went to Charleston was.
Did you go to Poogins Porch?
