my weight loss toolbox: vacation planning

As you know (or don't know if you're new here ;) I am on a mission to lose some pesky pounds. I'm not vain. I'm overweight. I'm working on losing this weight by eating well (most of the time) and moving more. Magic formulas are why you're here, right?

Jesse and I are taking a much needed vacation with our girls soon. How will I keep my my weight loss goals in mind you ask? Well, I'll tell you.

We are planning to (it's mostly me, and they comply):

Pack snacks (even meals)
Our trip isn't that long at 3 days, so it'll be easy enough for us to bring along a few foods items. Rather than eating out for breakfast (morning/afternoon snacks and lunch), we will be bringing along fruit, granola, and yogurt in a cooler, for example. Not only will we be saving calories, we'll be saving money, as well. We will be eating out for dinner. I'm not a monster. But! We will:

Choose restaurants wisely
A). I'm not willing to pay ridiculous prices for a house salad. B). If we're going to splurge, then every bite needs to be worth the calories. C). I love pizza.
To burn off some calories, we plan to:

Be active
We plan to go swimming in the hotel's swimming pool, which is a family friendly activity. I'm so looking forward to night swimming. (I'm glad my Active Link is waterproof). Chances are we will be walking quite a bit, too.
Finally, we will:

Take it easy
This is a vacation! We won't dwell on this topic. We will have a good time.
