Vacation plans

I'm on vacation next week!  I'm not really going anywhere; just taking some vacation time that I'll lose if I don't take before 2/1/12.  I have plans to have breakfast with my sister one day, spend some time with my mom, see some friends that I don't get to see very often, read a book or two, shop a little bit, maybe get a haircut ( I need a new "do"), and also spend some time doing some cleaning and organizing that I've been putting off.

I will eat healthy and exercise.  I will stay in touch with my accountability partner and post here.  I will spend time enjoying non-food related activities.  That can be hard for me.  When I have extra time, there is just something appealing about curling up with a good book and eating junk food.  That's something that I honestly miss.  I have to remind myself that I don't miss any of the ramifications of this, though, and that there are plenty of non-food related things that I can derive pleasure from.


  1. Have a lovely mini vacation from work. I was just thinking about reading combined with eating. I didn't do that when I was bingeing. TV, yes, but reading was always after I ate, not during. But at a normal weight I often read a book during lunch.

  2. It's a great time to organize the closet :)
    Get rid of anything that is now big on you - as a message to self - that you will no longer need those clothes because you have passed that stage.
