If you go on vacation, do you work out/eat healthy while you're away, or do you just let it slide and pick it back up when you get back home?

The last time I went on vacation I didn't workout exactly but I remember walking up and down the stairs and halls of the hotel to get some cardio. I didn't do a whole lot more than that though.

I don't tend to get much exercise in when we are on vacation, but I do try and eat well.

I haven't really had a vacation yet since I started getting serious. I had family visit for 2 weeks and during that I tried to at least get a few walks in. I was a bit lax on my eating but nothing too crazy.
We're going on a trip to visit family in October and then I probably wont have time to exercise. I'll probably lighten up on my food but not go crazy either.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I let it slide a bit, but not so badly that it's going to sabotage me. As for exercise, it really depends on where we are and what we're doing.

we don't really vacation much....when we do its to dh's family lol but I still try to watch my calorie intake while there, no exercise unless we go for walks

but in Vegas I didn't exercise or anything but I tried to be mindful of what I ate and there was a LOT of walking going on and swimming

I did manage a run while we were on vacation this summer. Diet though, was out the window! I ate horribly!

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

I always take my workout DVDs with me on vacation and do them while we are gone. I also buy my groceries so I can stay on track. It is too hard to keep having to start over for me..
