So...I was in NYC this week for spring break/vacation. I did watch my eating, but I did A LOT of walking in NYC. I took the subway 98% of the time and they don't seem to believe in elevators or escalators in most of their subway stations. I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said I was walking 3-4 hours average a day while sightseeing.
It's all about moderation. I had pizza, Chinese, bagels/cream cheese, and ate out for dinner. BUT...I brought snacks and protein bars for during the day and I had kashi for breakfast with my friend I was staying with. I didn't gorge or binge but I controlled my portions and savored every bite.
So yeah...this week was the mark of a new start of my life. I can still enjoy vacation and have fun without overeating all the time.
