This past weekend, I was in Dallas for Blissdom. I had a great time, and I’m so happy I was there. I spent a lot of great time with some great people, and I am now almost comfortable taking my camera off manual. Successful weekend, right?
Wait, I’m doing the Shaklee180™ program. I am one of their bloggers for the next six months, and I need to find a way to stick to this plan. Five days in Dallas? That wasn’t going to be easy. I will admit that I was a little nervous knowing the food that will be there (hello, Texas – just inject that barbecue straight into my veins!) and the people and the parties and drinks and more. That’s not what I have at home.
So I planned. I thought a lot about what I was going to do and how I was going to stick with the Shaklee plan. I knew right away I wasn’t going to bring a blender and make smoothies because I love too many ingredients in them, and I want to be hanging with friends, not cleaning my blender or running back to my room to make a smoothie. Had I pretended like I was going to make smoothies, I probably wouldn’t have stuck to the plan at all.
But I did it. My planning worked, and I’m proud of myself. So you know what? You can be on a diet and stick to it while on vacation. And that’s a good thing since I’m headed to Denver in April, too! I gathered up some of my tips and what I learned while traveling, and sharing them with you.
So what other tips do you have for traveling while on a diet? And do you have an update on how you’re doing with your goals? Link it up below!
