But we kind of HAVE to plan a bit more than that in our regular lives...grocery shopping, cooking, etc. I mean, unless i'm going to eat out for every meal, i'm going to have to plan...and planning can then start to get obsessive and into the whole "dieting" territory. Of course, it doesn't HAVE to be like that...there is a middle ground...but anyway that was just my musing for the day.
Interesting thought. non dieting would be much simpler if we didn't have to prepare for meals and could just eat at restaurants. Maybe that's another reason I do so well on vacations.
