Welcome to Small Steps to Health where we do not take orders from a cookie!
I had a fantastic time on my honeymoon trip. Prior to leaving, I was a little worried about gaining weight when so much of the trip was focused on food. My husband and I made a list of food we would like to try while we were in Rome and Athens first. The list for sightseeing came much later.
Unfortunately, we tend to rate our vacations based on the food we ate. Orlando was so-so because we ate mostly the same type of food we eat at home. Vancour was great because we ate at the Richmond area that made good Asian food (my husband and I still talk about the Japanese hot pot). We have fond memories of Seattle because of a good beach style seafood restaurant at the pier.
The Italian pizzas (we had five and we were only in Rome for 4 days) was terrific. We also loved the grilled meat in Athens. My friends call me “special” for basing my vacation experience on the food we ate, but is it really that weird? Is it any different than the guy who wears his lucky underwear at every job interview?
I love the amount of walking I get every time I travel. Rushing to catch the bus or the metro, walking around the museums, or hoofing to the next sightseeing destination with my trusty English map, I logged some serious miles. An average of 9 miles each day. That right – 20,000 odds steps every day.
So no weight gain. Some serious face time with some yummy food. Blissfully happy with some residual jetlag and a 5 day work week. I can’t wait until Thanksgiving.
Until next time and thanks for stopping by.
By the way, ignore my last post, it was jetlag talking.
