1. I took my 12.5 # dumbells with me (and actually used them,) and one 5# dumbell for my tabata intervals.
2. Some days I dressed in ‘workout clothes’ instead of trying to look good, so I would exercise during the day.
3. I exercised in my room in the evening while watching TV.
4. I checked the menu for the week, and made plans to skip most of the lunches, and one or two breakfasts, and ate my own lower calorie food that I had brought with me.
5. Sometimes I took a smaller piece of dessert.
6. Kept snacking to a minimum, and stayed out of the piles of candy that were everywhere in the classroom.
7. The day I went to town, I gave myself permission to eat out, but instead CHOSE to get some groceries at the store (homemade baked pita chips w/parmesan and spices, and some ripe strawberries, which I added to my cottage cheese,) and came back to my room for a delicious healthy meal.
8. Tried out the sunflower seeds for the ‘eating and driving’ problem. They really do take a very long time to eat a very small amount of food!
9. Got in a couple of great walks.
I can’t think of a #10, so will end my list. Don’t get the idea that I was a saint. I wasn’t. But like I said, I am trying to remember for myself the good choices that I made. Different choices than I would have made a few years ago.
I’ll try to share a few pictures with you of what I did. Its actually not that impressive looking, but I was quite thrilled that I was able to hook likenesses of my dogs that actually look like my dogs! I’ll show you the dogs in the next few days. In the meantime, I ‘borrowed’ some pictures from Gene’s blog (the director of the camp) to show you how beautiful Cambria is!
