To stay on plan or to not stay on plan?

My mama and me. Aren’t we cute?

My mom comes into town tomorrow night. Curt is heading to Missouri for a high school reunion. So I invited my mom out here for a girls’ weekend.

I haven’t decided yet whether the time she is here I will be counting points and tracking my food.

I am gonna just go with the flow.

But seriously, with all the booze I bought in anticipation of my mom’s visit …

If I decide to not track and indulge I will. And I won’t feel guilty.

I can give myself permission to “slack off” because I know on Monday I will be back on plan.

This long weekend will be full of shopping, mani/pedis, brunches, lunches, lounging on the couch watching Lifetime and SVU, chatting, a yoga class or two, dinners, drinks, movies.

I can’t wait to hang out with my mom, my friend.

It’s OK to splurge once in a while. But it just can’t be done all the time. Picking and choosing events or times will help you keep things under control.

Next month Curt and I are heading to Mexico City. When I am on vacation I am not on plan. A big part of travel for me is enjoying the food and drinks. Once we are back from vacation I will get back to my healthy routine of eating better and exercising.
